  • Prior to contracting with Electro-Motion, we did our own maintenance, which was very little due to lack of qualified staff and budget concerns. We have four diesel units at our various high schools and none were in great operating condition. Electro-Motion came in and provided us with professional services and brought our generators up to full operational capability. We are also considered emergency shelters due to unforseen natural disasters; and we need our generators to support this type of operation.

    Dual Starting Systems

    February 19, 2014

    Do you have generators with dual starters & battery sets for redundancy? How many battery chargers are supporting your battery sets? If you answered “one battery charger”, this is your primary risk area.

    If your only battery charger fails, you no longer have the ability to charge all four batteries, and therefore have lost the redundancy that was designed into your starting system. Dual starting systems for generators and fire pumps should have dual battery chargers to ensure the highest level of reliability.

    For life safety systems and mission critical systems, dual battery chargers for 24 volt systems can reduce starting risk when your systems are called upon during a power outage or fire.
