Do we have a solution to monitor fuel consumption of a Diesel Generator and also able to monitor how much time DG has been running at the same time?
I'm looking out for SE solution and not for any third party solution. It would be great if we can integrate the same with our DCE as well.

StruxureWare Data Center Expert is able to communicate with device via SNMPv1, SNMPv3 and Modbus/TCP. If the generate has the ability to communicate with one of those protocols then Data Center Expert is able to poll device data and alert based on thresholds. If the generator can monitor monitors fuel level then that information can be polled by Data Center Expert.

What I'm looking for is a complete solution where the complete DG Control and monitoring has to be done by our solution. I was looking at some Gas and Oil Industry solutions from SE and feel we should have some of these solutions which will make us pick up such orders without involving third party automation systems.
