26SI Series Alternator – Manage Event Tracking

There are many events that EquipmentManager reports that may be time sensitive, such as “Time and Geo Fence Alarms” and some “Fault Codes”. EquipmentManager enables you to configure these event alerts to be sent to an e-mail account or text messaging device. This enables immediate notification of these events so the events can be addressed in a timely manner.

By establishing an “Address Book” and telling EquipmentManager the specific events to track (“Reactions”), you can be sure that the correct person is notified when certain alarms, planned maintenance, diagnostic, events, and levels occur.

Address Book

Before you can assign reactions to individuals, you must enter the individual in the EquipmentManager “Address Book”.

Add an Address
