Selected power generator data, which is exchanged via CAN bus or MODBUS, is picked from the data bus by a Programmable Logical Controller PLC. Together with position data, which is provided by a separate GPS module, it is sent via Uniform Data Protocol UDP using a modem and the Global System for Mobile Communications GSM to a dedicated internet server. On the internet server, the received data is analyzed and stored in a database management system.
The content of the database is processed by a web server and can be accessed user-dependently and password-protected with any browser on personal computers, tablets or smartphones. The layout of the display automatically adjusts to the display capabilities of the terminal. In addition, static data of the device such as operating instructions and spare parts lists can be viewed.
The position data of the device is used for a geographical representation of the power supply on google maps. In addition, if the power supply is a mobile generator, a major change of the position may be used to generate a theft alarm via e-mail or text message.
