PTM300
Stationary Generator
Monitoring System
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
Planning the Installation
The monitoring unit should be located on a non-vibrating portion of the unit, typically inside of or near the
generator control panel.
The wiring harness supplied includes 96” leads for the Battery Positive (+) and Battery Negative (–) connections.
The harness also includes 48” leads for the inputs, ground leads and outputs. The kit also includes an 8” fuse
holder extension for the Battery Positive (+) lead and a ring terminal (loose) for the Battery Negative (–) lead.
The monitoring unit has an external cellular/GPS combo antenna. The antenna should be placed on top of the
generator enclosure for the best cellular reception. The antenna is either magnetically mounted or a “thruhole” mount, depending on the type purchased. For generator enclosures that do not have a suitable surface
to magnetically mount the antenna, a 1” heavy duty Velcro adhesive patch is supplied with the kit that can be
used as needed.
Preparing for the Installation
Standard precautions should be taken prior to installing the monitoring unit. At a minimum:
• Only knowledgeable and qualified personnel should attempt to install this system
• Remove the main fuse in the generator control panel
• Remove any fuses and/or disconnect AC power to the generator (if applicable) from the ATS
• Remove/disconnect any other power source to the generator
• Proper Lock Out/Tag Out procedures should be followed
Battery Connection
Making the Connections
The PTM300 harness includes a 96” RED Battery Positive (+) lead and a 96” BLACK Battery Negative (-) lead. The kit also
includes an 8” fuse holder extension for the Battery Positive (+) lead and a ring terminal (loose) for the Battery Negative
(–) lead. Many generator controllers provide B+ and B- terminals in the controller that can be used in lieu of connecting
directly to the engine starting battery. The standard monitoring program is set for a 12VDC battery system. For a
24VDC, contact Power Telematics via phone or email to change the low battery alarm set point. This is done
“over the air” and can be done at any time (you do not have to remain at the site).

Connect the BLACK Battery Negative lead (-) on the monitor harness to the negative (-) battery terminal
on the engine starting battery with the supplied ring terminal or another suitable B- location.
Connect the RED battery positive (+) lead on the monitor harness to the mechanical butt splice on the
battery positive fused lead and crimp.
Connect the fuse holder harness to the positive (+) battery terminal with the ring terminal supplied on
the extension or another suitable location such as the starter post.
Do not connect the harness to the monitor or mount the monitor yet - This will be done at the end
Ignition Wire Connection
Connect the Ignition Sensing Lead to the fuel solenoid/engine ECU power lead or an engine run relay. This
connection can be made by connecting this lead onto the connection terminal of the fuel solenoid, to the
appropriate terminal on the controller or by splicing onto the fuel solenoid power lead (quick splice connector
supplied). This lead requires a positive (+) 12/24VDC supplied to it when the engine is running.
Input Connections
For any questions on how to install the monitor, please call the Power Telematics Customer Support Team at
678-992-5501 for guidance and recommendations.
The PTM300 monitoring unit has four (4) digital inputs and one (1) analog input. An input configuration data
sheet is included with each monitor. This data sheet shows the programmed configuration for the monitor
inputs. The inputs can be reconfigured should you choose to monitor different conditions or need to change the
input bias for the controller you are connecting to. For any configuration changes, contact the Power Telematics
Customer Support Team to make any changes to the programming of the monitor. Monitor programming
changes can be sent “over the air”.
Digital Inputs
The digital inputs are used to signal a contact closing/opening to the monitor to send the event condition to the
Power Link platform. The inputs are pre-programmed to use with a traditional normally open dry contact relay
utilizing one of the ground leads supplied on the harness. Some generator controllers provide a positive voltage
output on the output terminal contact on the controller. The monitor input is capable of being reprogrammed
to change the bias of the input lead to receive a positive voltage to the input. In these applications, the ground
lead is not required. Contact Power Telematics Customer Support to change the programming of the monitor
(over the air) to correspond with the controller and outputs you are connecting to.
The PTM300 has four (4) digital inputs labeled Input #1 – Input #4. There are four (4) relay ground wires that
are included in the harness. Any of these ground wires can be used with the inputs for dry contact relays.
Connect the appropriate INPUT LEAD (see input configuration data sheet) on the harness to the normally open
contact output. Connect a BLACK ground lead to the common terminal (other side of the normally open contact
output). If the controller output is normally closed/open on alarm, contact Power Telematics Customer Support
to confirm if programming changes need to be made.
See accessory kit installation instructions for any kits purchased with this monitoring system.
Common Fault Alarm Note: There is a 30 second delay for a common fault alarm to report. If you are testing
the common fault alarm, be sure to leave the common fault alarm relay closed for at least 30 seconds.
Analog ADC1 Input
The primary use of the analog input channel ADC1 lead is for a common fault signal connected to a positive DC
voltage (7-30VDC) lead for a fault lamp or horn when a common fault alarm relay is not available. This analog
input can also be used for current sensing on large generators using the GCT kit or for an external fuel sensor
when a low fuel level contact is not available on the generator. The analog input lead ADC1 accepts a positive
voltage from 7-30VDC. Contact Power Telematics for when using the ADC1 input channel to coordinate the
programming of this input channel.
Relay Driver Outputs
There are three (3) relay driver outputs that
are available. Output Lead #1 is used for
Remote Start/Stop to provide a ground path to
drive a 12VDC or 24VDC relay or close an autostart contact. Contact the Power Telematics
to coordinate programming if any relay driver
outputs are used.
PT Monitor
Mount the Monitor
It is best to mount and install the monitor in a vibration free location. Typically, the PT300E is best installed
inside of or on the top, side or back of t h e generator controller. Mount the monitor using the heavy-duty
Velcro patch supplied with the unit (clean the surface as needed) and place the monitor at a height so that the
harness leads “hang down” create a “moisture drip loop” to prevent moisture intrusion into the connectors on
the monitoring unit.
Connect the Antenna
The cellular/GPS combo antenna should be mounted outside of and on top of the generator enclosure for the
best cellular reception. Route the leads to the monitoring unit allowing for a “moisture drip loop” and connect.
If you must coil the antenna leads, larger coils improve the reception signal. The antenna is either magnetically
mounted or a “thru-hole” mount, depending on the type purchased. For aluminum or fiberglass enclosures that
do not have a suitable surface to magnetically mount the antenna, a 1” heavy-duty Velcro patch is supplied with
the kit that can be used. For the initial “Power Up” sequence, the antenna must be outside to receive a GPS
location signal or locate the monitor and to sync the local time.
Connect the harness to the monitor
Initial “Power Up” Sequence
After you have connected the harness to the monitor, the unit will go through an initial “boot up” sequence.
Both the ORANGE light (cell) and the GREEN light (GPS) will flash intermittently until the sequence is
complete (usually a couple of minutes), then both lights will become solid. Once BOTH the ORANGE and
GREEN lights remain solid for at least 60 seconds, the boot up sequence is complete. Sometimes, it may be
necessary to “power cycle” the monitor to reinitiate registration with the cellular network. If the ORANGE
light remains in a flashing mode for more than 5 minutes, disconnect power to the monitor (disconnect the
harness) for 10 seconds, then reconnect the power to reinitiate the process. Once both lights are solid,
proceed to start and run the generator. Start and run the generator for at least 10-15 seconds, then turn
it off. This will initiate a generator run signal to the monitor that will be transmitted to the user interface.
Connection “Handshake” Acknowledgement
This step is to confirm that the generator run signal and initial “handshake” with the user interface is
complete. This can be accomplished via the Power Link Mobile Viewer on your smart phone/tablet or on a
computer connected to the internet.
Mobile Viewer Smart Phone/Tablet Connection
Open your internet browser and go to the web site
www.monitoringdatasite.com t o l o g i n . You
should see the Power Link Mobile Viewer log in screen.
Enter User Name and Password, then select Login. If
you see the unit that you just installed listed, the
“handshake” is complete. If you do not see the unit
listed, verify that BOTH the ORANGE and GREEN lights
are solid. If so, then run the generator again for 10-15
seconds, then turn the generator off. If you still do not
see the unit listed after a few minutes, there may be a
problem with your ignition wire connection. Verify that
this lead is securely connected and run the generator
again. If the unit is still not listed, call our support team
for troubleshooting assistance.
Computer Internet Connection
Open your internet browser and go to
www.monitoringdatasite.com t o l o g i n . You
should see the Power Link log in screen. Enter User
Name and Password, then select Login. Select the
Tracking tab. You will see the unit listed (list is sorted
alphabetically). Once the unit has completed the initial
“handshake” with the user interface, the Session Info
Icon will change from gray to green. If the session info
icon is green, and the monitor is located on the map,
the “handshake” is complete.
If the icon is gray, verify that BOTH the ORANGE and GREEN lights on the monitor are solid. If so, then run the
generator again for 10-15 seconds, then turn the generator off. If you still do not see the Session Info Icon
change from gray to green after a few minutes, there may be a problem with your ignition wire connection.
Verify that this lead is securely connected and run the generator again. If the icon is still gray, call our support
team for troubleshooting assistance.
Test Input Connections
Once the monitor is communicating with the Power Link user interface, you will be
able to see the events sent from the monitor. It is a good idea to test the input
connections before leaving to make sure that the inputs are wired correctly and
functioning properly. Test each input and verify that the events are being received.
Mobile Viewer Verification
You can view each of these events on the mobile viewer (Select the Monitor
installed and select Alerts). This will show you each of the contact events you are
testing as well as the generator run/off events.
Computer/Internet Verification
You can view each of these events on the user interface. Select the Tracking Tab, then click on the green
Session Info Icon. This will open the Session Info screen. Select the Events Tab and you should see the events
created from the input verification tests as well as the generator on/off events.
That’s it…you are all set. For any questions or need any assistance, please contact our support team.
