On January 14, 2013 the EPA signed final revisions to the 2010 RICE NESHAP (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants) Standards to update and reflect that the standards are cost-effective, achievable, and protective while continuing to provide significant emissions reductions. Entities that have their own diesel generators to produce electricity will be affected by the new RICE Rules. These types of generators are primarily used during "peak" usage times and for reliability/emergency periods to keep the lights on.

The SentinelWorks regulatory compliance model provides a cloud based software and/or server solution to allow customers to collect, analyze and report data from stationary engines against criteria set forth under the NESHAP, New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), as well as state and local regulations. The SentinelWorks solution is scalable from a single engine to an entire fleet and provides comprehensive and accurate reporting.

The SentinelWorks RICE Rule regulatory compliance model includes the following:

Cellular gateway will provide communications between local devices/engines and the SentinelWorks system;

ZigBee relay controller which will accept communication from the gateway and will open/close relay circuit accordingly;

Transformer will ensure proper voltage is applied to starting circuit of generator as well as provide fuse services.
