6 Ways Cat Connect can help you cut costs

Using data generated by your equipment puts money in your pocket by helping you keep your equipment in top shape and avoid unplanned downtime. Lower life cycle costs can make you more competitive and increase your edge, even during the most challenging market conditions. Here are six ways to make the most of your data to help manage your assets and reduce operating costs.


1. Preventive Maintenance

Take advantage of electronic data, alerts, and records to schedule and complete all recommended maintenance and service.

2. Maintain Peak Unit Performance

Use alerts to prevent problems that may reduce fuel efficiency. Using your investment properly by running at peak performance can positively impact your bottom line.

3. Offsite Support

Diagnostic information sent to offsite experts can help eliminate the need for unnecessary onsite visits by technical staff throughout the lifecycle of your system, reducing labor costs.

4. Repair Before Failure

Use equipment data and electronic alerts to catch small problems early. Schedule repairs quickly to avoid breakdowns and keep repair costs low. Unscheduled downtime can have a huge impact on your profitability and sustainability.

5. Monitor Operator Training

Operating practices dramatically impact performance and component wear. Remotely monitor your day-to-day usage to spot training opportunities.

6. Record-keeping

Automatically gather data on equipment history, component life, and operating costs. Good records help you identify high-cost or problem areas and control expenses.

Increase uptime and reduce operating costs.
  • Ensure units are properly loaded and online to meet your power requirements.
  • Monitor run hours and fuel consumed to keep your use consistent across your fleet.
  • Catch problems early and schedule repairs quickly.
  • Identify inefficient maintenance practices and potential technician development needs.
Boost Performance
SCADA Systems

Power is the lifeblood of your business. Using equipment data to manage your fleet will help ensure high system performance and more efficient and reliable power production.


1. Monitor Generator Set Load

Use equipment data to ensure individual units are properly loaded and that you have the optimum number of units online to meet your power requirements.

2. Proper Fleet Usage

Monitor run hours and fuel consumption to keep usage across your fleet consistent and manage maintenance and overhaul intervals.

3. Get the Big Picture

Bring all your fleet data together in one place. Getting a big-picture fleet overview can help you eliminate duplicated efforts and inefficient maintenance practices, improve processes, and identify technician development needs.

4. Plan Service to Avoid Surprises

Use inspections, equipment performance data, fluid sampling, and electronic alerts to catch problems early. Scheduling repairs early helps avoid breakdowns and performance issues like excess oil consumption or inability to operate at rated load.

5. Improve Operator Training

Train your operators to pay attention to equipment alerts. Quick action can help keep your equipment from experiencing extended downtime.

6. Ready-to-Run

Use electronic alerts to ensure that your asset will start and perform when required.

Enhance awareness to keep people and equipment safe.
  • Use the right resources, at the right time, with the right capabilities.
  • Maximize uptime and extend equipment life.
  • Take advantage of equipment data event logs.
  • Receive alerts on simple-to-correct conditions.
Manage Risk
Data Privacy

Effectively managing your equipment is one way to lessen the impact of some of those day-to-day risks.


1. Limited Resources

By understanding which equipment needs attention, you can better use the right resources, at the right time, and with the right capabilities, to keep focus on the priorities.

2. Unscheduled Downtime

Keeping up with preventive maintenance is the single best way to avoid major equipment failures. Also, take full advantage of electronic alerts and equipment data event logs to help spot small problems before they can cause larger issues.

3. Limited Cash Flow

Unplanned repairs or early equipment replacements cripple your cash flow. Good equipment management helps you maximize uptime and extend the life of your equipment.

4. Failure to Start

Equipment alerts can provide peace of mind knowing that simple problems won’t prevent your generator set from starting and picking up rated load when you need it.

5. Protect Your Most Valuable Assets

Quick response times by operators can prevent major failures and reduce the risk to your business and your most valuable assets – your people.
