An orchestra is far more than simply a collection of musicians. It is the conductor who brings together the individual players to create a single powerful and distinctive sound. The HPC Sigma Air Manager (SAM) available via Glaston plays a very similar role within a compressed air supply system: Utilising the latest master control and web server technology, the SAM is an invaluable tool for ensuring optimised air system availability and energy efficiency.
The SAM controller is designed to not only control energy efficient HPC Kaeser Compressors but all brands of compressors such as Atlas Copco, Ingersoll Rand, Boge and Compair.
The adaptive 3-D-Control detects switching losses (starts/stops), control losses (idling and variable speed drive losses) and pressure flexibility (average increase over required pressure), optimises the ratios between these determining factors and minimises the associated energy requirement. Pressure performance is also improved and average pressure is reduced.
Using powerful industrial PC-based technology, the SAM is an all-in-one master control system and web server. This versatile system not only ensures energy-saving control, but – thanks to advanced communication technology – also provides unrivalled transparency relating to key data such as operational status, energy consumption and compressed air system costs.
The SAM automatically ensures optimum energy consumption. Users benefit from outstanding energy efficiency and user-friendly operation: Just input the required pressure and compressor performance data – the rest is done for you.
The SAM can be easily connected to Glaston Compressors remote diagnostics and demand-oriented maintenance service. Using the modem interface, data is sent directly to Glaston via SMS or a standard telephone line. This feature further enhances system availability.
