Safeguard Your Back-Up Plan: Control Efficiency and Performance with Panel Upgrades

Safeguard Your Back-Up Plan: Control Efficiency and Performance with Panel Upgrades

Generators are arguably your best line of defense during an unforeseen power or utility disruption. Whether you are in healthcare, heavy construction, property management, entertainment, education, or just about any industry, you and your customers probably rely on a generator in a crisis.

That’s why it’s important that you maintain and service your generators with regularity, ensuring they are operating reliably and quickly when you need them most. One step we recommend is to consider upgrading your equipment’s Electro-Mechanical Control Panel.

Older generators often times utilize less sophisticated, and sometimes more complicated, control panels that are limited in their functionality, and sometimes, their dependability. By upgrading, you can more efficiently monitor, control, and communicate with your equipment whether you are on-site, or miles away. And upgraded panels are a cost-effective alternative to replacing the older generation machines.

Newer control panels help protect your generator by monitoring its performance and alerting you when service is necessary. Their intuitive navigation technology makes them easy to use, and remote capabilities enable you to activate or deactivate your equipment immediately before a problem becomes an emergency. Fabick Cat’s newest panels have the ability to shut down the generator if a mechanical or fluid failure within the machine threatens to cause permanent damage, necessitating a potentially costly replacement.

Generators are crucial when it comes to proactively preparing for the unexpected. But equally important is making sure that your backup plan is reliable and easy to implement. Upgrading your control panel is one simple way to ensure that your generator will perform when the time arises.
