Messenger GMB

Product Overview

The Messenger GMB is a complete system to remotely control a generator and independently control the load connected to the generator. With automatic independent control of the load, users are able to deploy generators that are properly sized for the load they are running.

The Messenger GMB operates by turning the generator on, waiting for the generator to fully start, then connecting the load – all automatically and remotely. The generator is started via a remote start connection, the generator RPM is monitored directly from the generator controller, when the speed it up, the GMB connects the load and verifies that the kW of the generator indicates the load is successfully powered. Any failures are reported to the user via Antx’ Centurion web application.

Advantages of Messenger GMB are:

  • reduce trips to the generator for start/stop, saving labor and fuel
  • reduce generator fuel consumption by properly sizing the generator for the load
  • get alarms on low fuel, disconnected load and generator faults
  • automatically start and stop the generator and load based on other conditions
    • level in a tank
    • flow through a flow meter
    • pressure
  • solar power to keep the generator battery charged

Monitoring capabilities:

  • Engine:
    • RPM, engine hours, coolant temperature, oil pressure, fuel usage, engine diagnostics on some generators
  • Generator: (DeepSea and ComAp, others available on request)
    • kW, power factor, L1, L2 and L3 voltages and current
