The temporary power specialist, Midas, has revealed its latest generators feature, LiveLink, JCB’s monitoring system, which lets the supplier watch and address the machines’ performance, efficiency and security, remotely.

Providing real time analytics through the Vodafone emergency services network, which has 99 per cent coverage across the UK and offshore, LiveLink measures the machine’s performance and how it’s being run.

Midas’ managing director, Dave Noble, comments: “You don’t have to rely on the client for information any more. With LiveLink we know more about the machine than the person using it. The graphs tell us how the machine is being run. The object is to get the pie chart as green and yellow as possible by drilling down into the dynamics. LiveLink means we can watch the kit at all times, give advice about any impending problems and optimise performance. It’s a massive step forward.”

Brian Cleary, managing director at Sygma Safety and Events, said: “LiveLink crosses a new threshold in terms of quantifying generator efficiency and accountability on event sites. It will ring real changes. Congratulations JCB for developing the technology and to Midas for its unquenchable pioneering spirit. “
