Temporary power specialist Midas’ latest generators feature LiveLink, JCB’s unique monitoring system, which lets the supplier watch and address the machines’ performance, efficiency and security, remotely.
Mooted as the progressive sustainability solution since early last year, this is the first time a major manufacturer has got involved to make a monitoring system the new reality for temporary power.
Providing real time, and historic, analytics through the Vodafone emergency services network, which has 99 per cent coverage across the UK and offshore, LiveLink measures every element of a machine’s performance and how it’s being run. Unaffected by the bio diesel/red diesel cost equation, it slashes waste and contains costs for the supplier, and the client, like never before.
JCB LiveLink’s enhanced security package keeps Midas informed when its machines are on the move and lets the company know how they are being treated, generating a reduction of up to 10 per cent in insurance premiums.
Midas’ Managing Director, Dave Noble, comments: “You don’t have to rely on the client for information any more. With LiveLink we know more about the machine than the person using it. The graphs tell us how the machine is being run. The object is to get the pie chart as green and yellow as possible by drilling down into the dynamics. LiveLink means we can watch the kit at all times, give advice about any impending problems and optimise performance. It’s a massive step forward.
Brian Cleary, Managing Director at Sygma Safety & Events, says: “LiveLink crosses a new threshold in terms of quantifying generator efficiency and accountability on event sites. It will ring real changes. Congratulations JCB for developing the technology and to Midas for its unquenchable pioneering spirit.“
Maintaining power is considered critical to the COVID-19 response
We have a large range of generators for emergency applications ready for immediate deployment
Therefore, Midas will continue to operate our usual 24/7 service, however, we have made some changes to our usual working procedures to ensure the safety of our employees and customers:
● Emergency generator delivery, particularly into the healthcare sector, will be our top priority. Product deliveries and collections into other sectors will continue as normal unless customers have explicitly requested our drivers do not enter their sites
● We respectfully ask for 24 hours’ notice of any change of delivery details at the current time. In such circumstances, we will work with our customers to understand the issues and rearrange a suitable delivery/collection date or location
● All drivers will adhere to the NHS guidelines regarding personal hygiene. We will also ensure all drivers have hand sanitiser in their vehicles where possible
● Please do not visit the Midas offices without arranging an appointment. If you feel you need to see us in person, please call us on the usual office number and we will try to accommodate your request
● Some staff may be working from home over the coming weeks and we have put systems in place to minimise disruption to our customers. Please be aware that our staff may call you from a mobile number rather than our usual landline.
Should we need to make further changes in the future, we shall obviously communicate these to you as soon as possible.
We hope that you understand our approach. If you have any concerns, please contact the office. We shall issue updated information if the situation changes.
We wish you and your family well at this difficult time.
