Sentinel Fleet Management version 7.2 is now available. This release includes additional monitoring tools for generators, support for engine hours from heavy-duty vehicle ECM, and bug fixes.


Features available upon request


GENERATOR MONITORING TOOLS

We’ve added two monitoring tools for generator units.

The first tool is a low fuel alert, which sends a configurable text message when the fuel in a generator drops below a specified threshold. This feature can read fuel levels from both ECM and analog inputs, which makes it easier for fleet managers to proactively refuel their generators.

The second tool is a configurable alert that helps monitor when a generator has been running in its warm-up idling state for too long. By default, an alert is triggered when a generator has been running below 1000 RPM for over 30 minutes.


ENGINE HOURS FROM ECM

Total engine run time (TERT) can now be monitored from the ECM of generators and heavy-duty vehicles. Previously, engine hours were calculated from ignition duration.
