26SI Series Alternator – Fuel Results

The EquipmentManager software is able to collect data regarding the fuel consumption of your equipment. This data includes the following: fuel level, fuel usage and the history for refueling.

Note: The results that are displayed using “Fuel Results” are not results that are measured. The information that is viewed on the “Fuel Results” screen is calculated information. The calculations are based on the performance maps of the machine. The performance maps define specific performance characteristics of the machine. These characteristics determine the calculated fuel usage at different loading conditions. The result is the cumulative fuel consumption.

In order to view the fuel information for a specific machine, use the following procedure:
