Compressed air systems typically comprise of multiple compressors delivering air to a common distribution system. The combined capacity of those machines is generally greater than the maximum site demand.
It comes with a powerful control tool designed and developed with the focus on operator convenience and ease of installation. The graphical presentation of the sequencer is very user-friendly. It is operated from an intuitive touch-screen panel that gives plant managers a comprehensive overview of the complete system including downstream equipment, to help improve complete network performance.
The ease of operation begins with a modern set-up assistant, which guides the user through the entire set-up process. Each and every input parameter is individually confirmed ensuring that each setting is correct. The home page gives a clear overview of the full station as well as network pressure, pressure range and compressed air consumption. There is a separate, individual status display for each connected compressor which also shows fault and warning message, including the exact time and date. The status also shows the operating and load hours of every individual compressor.
The SmartAir Master sequencer has versatile functions, which calculate the demand and selects the most suitable combination to precisely meet the plant requirements. An important side effect of this efficiency is the significant energy savings created by the precise production geared to meet the demands without waste.
Unlike conventional control systems, it is possible to add on equipment such as dryers, filters and condensate drains as needed. This optimum performance means less maintenance to keep the central system running flawlessly. All performance characteristics are logged on the integrated SD card providing further analysis options of the system performance.
Speaking of performance, the large memory capacity ensures the safe and fast exchange of large amounts of data. Beyond the investment costs, the 35% energy savings, and reduced downtime, the system harmonises the workload of up to 12 fixed or regulated speed compressors, tightens the network pressure to the narrowest pressure band, and equalises the running hours for economic servicing and increased uptime. The better the technology, the more choice features are available.
