ComAp InteliLite: Next Generation Single Genset Controller

Rental companies, genset packagers, panel builders and genset users – there’s something for everybody inside ComAp’s new InteliLite.

Controller manufacturers used to be able to get away with selling basic controls for entry-level gensets.

Not anymore. ComAp’s new InteliLite controller has re-written the rulebook.

The world’s most successful single genset controller family has lots of new features to improve flexibility, usability and communication capabilities. These exciting features include:

1) 4G connectivity means your customers can communicate wirelessly with their gensets.

2) GPS and geo-tracking means you can promote an “unlosable” genset.

3) A brilliant processor and more memory support powerful PLC capabilities.

4) An hourly and daily charging capability is great for rental operators.

5) Geo-fencing stops a genset if it’s too far from its base.

6) Tier 4 Final compatibility means it meets tomorrow’s emissions standards.

7) Costs are kept low by packaging some features as options – customers only pay for what they need.

8) USB is included as standard.

See the rest of the key benefits:

Choosing the right battery charger can be confusing. Let IPU make the decision simpler.

There are too many generator battery chargers on the market. You’re tempted to buy the cheapest you can find but you know that you’re in trouble if you’re on-site without the right one.

IPU’s Battery Charger Product Selector will help you select what you need. It’s an Excel spreadsheet that lets you filter products according to what you need:

if you only need a 12V charger, that’s all you’ll see
if you need a fast-charging 10A charger, that’s what you can select
if you need a DIN rail-mounted charger, you can pick them out.

Access it here:

IPU have announced its proposal to sell its Groundcare business to T H WHITE Group.

The sale allows IPU to focus on the energy and engine markets, whilst expanding T H WHITE’s diverse business group with a new import and distribution arm.

The Ferris and Wright operation will be run as a separate division within T H WHITE to preserve the independence of its relationships with existing dealers.

It is proposed that as of 1st February 2016 T H WHITE will become the sole UK distributor for Ferris & Wright mowers and will begin distributing these two brands to an established network of professional groundcare dealers. This new service will be offered from T H WHITE’s recently purchased 3.6 acre Stockbridge site in Hampshire.

The plans are for IPU’s experienced groundcare staff to join T H WHITE on 1st February. IPU’s stock of equipment and spares will move with them and any outstanding orders and activities will be transferred. This will mean business as usual for sales of Ferris and Wright mowers.

Where would Christmas be without IPU?

Everyone at IPU hopes that Santa brings you all the presents you want on Christmas morning. We know he’ll be out on his sleigh through the wee, small hours delivering presents all around the world.

If it hadn’t been for IPU, it might have been very different…

Shoddy maintenance by his elves (always downing tools and moaning about elf & safety – sorry), meant that his facilities at the North Pole were falling apart.

This is when IPU stepped in:

• Andy Whitehouse’s Fuel Conditioning team installed a polishing unit to stop cold diesel clogging the sleigh’s engine (the reindeer quit in 2010, complaining that Christmas was only meant to be twelve days long)
• Dave Caddick’s Engine Starting team fitted a new spring starter to the sleigh so the engine starts just as well at the frozen Pole as it does in the balmy Bahamas
• Doug Campbell’s Oil Conditioning team fitted an OilAlert system to the wrapping machine so it kept running all through the peak weeks
• Clive Carter’s Groundcare team added a snow blade to Santa’s mowers so the elves could clear the runway
• And Andy Whitehouse’s Single Sourcing team installed a coolant heater to the sleigh’s engine so it fired up at full power wherever Santa was

IPU’s Christmas closing times

And after that little bit of frivolity, here’s the serious bit. Santa may be working throughout Christmas but I’m afraid we’re taking some time off. IPU will close for Christmas from Wednesday 23rd December at 5 p.m. and we’ll reopen at 8 a.m. on Monday 4th January 2016, ready and raring for the new year!

National Research Institute of Canada data shows that 82% mechanical breakdowns are caused by solid particulate contamination in oil.

Kawasaki Steel were facing this exact problem. They took the step to move away from reactive repairs and become pro-active when it came to their lubrication – to eliminate the problem before it caused an issue.

Find out how Kawasaki Steel specifically targeted particle contamination by putting their oil through an improved filtration process:
