The Importance of a Scheduled Planned Maintenance Program
Like any other equipment, your generator power system needs periodic maintenance to keep it in top condition and ready to operate when the lights go out. The middle of a power failure is not the time to find out your system has problems. Loftin Equipment Co. offers PM programs tailored to your needs.
Digital Communications in Electrical Generation Systems
Today, electrical generation systems are rarely used as isolated,
stand alone systems. More often, they need to communicate with peripheral devices, other generation systems, building management systems, or remote monitors. As a result, there are a number of technologies used to enable communication between electrical generation systems and other equipment. If you're involved in specifying, installing, or maintaining electrical generation systems, you'll find it helpful to understand how these communication technologies work.
Sub-Base Fuel Tanks for Generator Sets
This Information Sheet discusses the variety of codes and regulations pertaining to sub-base fuel tanks for standby generators. Fuel tanks come in all shapes and sizes, but often need to comply with certain standards.
The single most frequent service call for generator failure is related to battery failure. Eighty percent of all battery failure is related to sulfation buildup — the accumulation of lead sulfates on the plates of lead-acid batteries.
