Midas invests in LiveLink monitor

Temporary power specialist Midas has introduced LiveLink to the company’s latest generators.

LiveLink, the unique monitoring system from JCB, lets Midas remotely watch and address its machines’ performance, efficiency and security.

This is the first time a major manufacturer has got involved to make a monitoring system the new reality for temporary power, and is already mooted as an exciting new progressive sustainability solution.

The system provides real time and historic analytics through the Vodafone emergency services network, which has 99 per cent coverage across the UK and offshore. LiveLink measures every element of a machine’s performance and how it’s being run, unaffected by the biodiesel/red diesel cost equation.

The accompanying security package keeps Midas informed when its machines are out for hire, as well as how they are being treated on the job.

“You don’t have to rely on the client for information anymore,” said Midas’ managing director Dave Noble. “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.”
