Make Sure Your Generator System is Prepared When You Need It
Whatever the industry, the key to having back-up power available and operating reliably during outages, is a planned maintenance program. While most standby generators incorporate an automatic set exerciser to start and run the generators for 30-minutes, such as once a week, only a planned maintenance program undertaken regularly will ensure reliability of the complete system.
