A connector system comprising a status monitoring cable system comprising a first cable connector adapted to be connected to a generator connector, a second cable connector adapted to be connected to a UPS connector, a third cable connector adapted to be connected to the modem connector, a jumper, first and second power conductors connected between the first cable connector and the second cable connector, and a sensor module comprising a current detect module and a connector detect module. The current detect module transmits a GEN_ON signal to the modem when a current is present in at least one of the first and second power conductors. The connector detect module transmits a GEN_PRESENT signal to the modem when a current flows through the first cable connector, the generator connector, the jumper, the generator connector, and the first cable connector.
