Technology of the Future: Low pressure 4.0

Intelligent and straightforward blower control: the Sigma Air Manager 4.0 is the solution for blower station automation. This sophisticated controller delivers maximum energy efficiency and cost savings whilst making the station ready for Industrie 4.0 applications.

The Sigma Air Manager 4.0 from Kaeser Compressors, is the core component of a blower station and the key technology needed in order to take advantage of the Industrie 4.0 services of the future. It acts as the central mastermind and controls the individual machines with maximum efficiency whilst perfectly adjusting the flow capacity to match flow rate demand. All it needs from the process control system is the desired differential pressure value – the SAM 4.0 then ensures optimal control of all blowers.

Partial-load bridging and individual solutions are therefore things of the past, along with complicated setups. Now, all applications are supplied by one central blower station with a master controller that analyses operating data in seconds and simulates various scenarios in order to select the most efficient solution. The result? Previously unimaginable energy efficiency.

All components within the station are optimally matched and controlled to meet the customer’s specific needs. Real-time process monitoring provides valuable operating data, which is forwarded for detailed evaluation. The analysed results help to predict potential faults as early as possible and prevent them by taking timely action.
