PMP FAQ

The Powermode Monitoring Portal (PMP), is an Internet-linked system geared to monitor your company’s standby power environment, reporting on a wide range of critical parameters associated with uninterruptible power supply systems (UPSs) solar PV systems and generators.

The PMP streams empirical data from your backup power system in real-time to Powermode’s 24×7 Operations Centre in Johannesburg. The GSM network connectivity provides deep in-sight into the distributed power infrastructure, anywhere.

The IoT, “Internet of Things” is defined as a system in which the Internet is linked to the physical world through any number of sensors which have the ability – and the power – to radically change the way people manage their lives and businesses, generally through resource optimisation.

No. The PMP is both cross-platform and vendor agnostic, meaning it can be retro-fitted to any backup power system irrespective of brand or type.

One of the most significant advantages of the PMP is no new infrastructure has to be built or designed for its failure-proofing benefits to be realised.

The PMP provides email alerts directly to organisations’ facilities managers and to Powermode’s call centre. These configurable alerts are triggered by changes to various pre-set battery performance parameters.

Technicians will react to an alarm signalling a disparity in standby power quality from accepted benchmarks by immediately notifying your or any designated person within the company concerned. If authorised, a service crew will be dispatched to any location country-wide to address the problem.

Deployment is non-intrusive and does not affect the operation of your standby power device(s) in any way. You should therefore be able to see an immediate return on your investment.

No, this will need to be installed by a qualified Powermode technician.
