What is an Automatic Standby Generator?
An Automatic Standby Generator is a generator with an automatic transfer switch. This transfer switch allows
the generator to monitor the power going to the house, and switch the power over to the generator if it detects a drop
in the main power. This means that when the main power goes out, it will only be moments before the generator will take
over and run the house or business like normal. This feature makes these generators more hassle-free than portable generators.
A portable generator has to be turned on, and has to have extension cords run from it to power things, requiring the home
or business owner to unplug things from the outlet, and plug them in to the extension cords. An automatic standby generator
will run power to the same outlets these things are plugged into already. A standby generator offers less downtime and the
ability to power more things than a portable generator. Another upside to an Automatic Standby Generator is that most run
off of a natural gas line, meaning you won't have to worry about having propane or diesel laying around to make your generator
function, it will be ready to go exactly when you need it to be.
What is Automatic Lubrication?
Automatic Lubrication systems apply a set amount of grease/oil to the lubrication points at a pre-set time or machine count.
Why Use Automatic Lubrication?
These systems are very flexible and, for example, can be set to activate every third time your machine runs or even
hourly. This means your machinery will always have the optimum levels of lubrication instead of having periods where
it is over or under lubricated. Using an automated lubrication system has proven to make machinery last 4 times longer
than if it was manually lubricated. This means less downtime on your machinery, lower repair costs, and frees up
an employee to focus on their job rather than keeping machinery lubricated.
