Job of the Month: DSE Controller and Annunciator Retrofit, Phoenix AZ
By: Bill Collins
We received an emergency call where the customer stated that unit would not start. We found that the generator controller was providing an intermittent start signal. After researching the controller parts we found that the replacement board was no longer manufactured. This was problematic because the generator controller also controlled the ATS functions. We offered the customer a solution, The Deep Sea 7320 controller was a perfect solution. It would not only function as a generator controller but it would provide ATS control as well.

Job: Sunrise Senior Living, Grosse Point, MI

Thinking Outside the Box
During an inspection for Sunrise Senior Living at Grosse Point, MI, Roger Herring found that one of the rear freeze plugs was leaking antifreeze between the generator end and the engine and it would require both items to be separated for replacement. There were many obstacles to complete this repair. One obstacle was that the generator was located on the rooftop, another was the roofing material membrane, and there was limited access through the roof hatch.
