Adaptive SAM 3D offers three dimensions of control
October 22, 2012
Kaeser Compressors' (us.kaeser.com) new generation of Sigma Air Manager (SAM) now features the adaptive 3D Control. Active rather than reactive, the new self-adjusting 3D software responds to the three crucial dimensions that affect air system efficiency: switching losses, control losses and pressure flexibility. The result is significant energy savings through reduced compressor run and idling time; and reduced leaks and artificial demand. At the same time, it provides the lowest average system pressure for better operation of plant equipment.
This controller includes an integral Web-server for remote monitoring of system activity. The optional Sigma Air Control Plus stores and analyzes system data for reporting, system audits, control optimization and long-term trend analysis. SAM can operate multiple compressors, blowers or vacuum pumps. Integrating the SAM into your OPC server allows for additional remote capabilities, including control.
