Model 325 Generator Exercise Monitor
Every standby power unit must be exercised regularly in order to remain healthy and be ready to respond to any emergency. The exercise cycle is normally performed weekly by an automatic timer that is part of the generator controls. However, many generators do not monitor the exercise cycle and warn if it does not take place as scheduled. Since personnel are not normally present when the generator runs, the only way to tell is to record the reading of the running time meter weekly. This is inconvenient and expensive at remote sites.
