Remote Monitoring Options
The PowerWizard Annunciator is a 16-channnel display unit for remotely monitoring the status of FG Wilson generator sets at a distance of up to 240 metres.
The Annunciator communicates via the CAN 2 data link which comes as standard on generator sets fitted with PowerWizard 2.0 or 2.1 Control Panels. Each of the 16 channels on the Annunciator has two LEDs to display status and alarm signals directly from the PowerWizard 2.0 or 2.1 Control Panel on the generator set.
The pre-set channels linked to each LED display can be individually configured using the Electronic Service Tool (EST). This allows Operators to monitor different generator set status and alarm signals to suit site-specific requirements.
In addition to the LED display, the Annunciator includes an audible alarm, an alarm acknowledge pushbutton and a lamp test pushbutton.
