Key technology for Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things
The new generation of compressed air system control is here with Sigma Air Manager 4.0. Using its adaptive 3Dadvanced Control, SAM 4.0 makes air generation and treatment even more intelligent, reliable, and efficient.
3Dadvanced control analyzes all operating data on an ongoing basis, simulates alternative actions and calculates the perfect combination of compressors, blowers, or vacuum units to meet demand . The result: Unprecedented energy efficiency. SAM 4.0's easy operation, visualization, analysis capabilities, and secure network technology enables real-time system monitoring from any PC.
And if you have big plans for the future: Sigma Air Manager 4.0 is designed to grow with your system. A simple software upgrade allows expanding the master controller without the need for additional new hardware.
- Smart: Sigma Air Manager 4.0 not only reduces switching losses, but it takes into account various compressed air system parameters and uses the gathered information to calculate the optimum performance values.
- Secure: Together the Sigma Air Manager 4.0 and the powerful Ethernet-based Kaeser Sigma Network form a future-dynamic infrastructure that meets all requirements for a highly-secure industrial control system.
- Efficient: Continuously fine tunes the system in order to achieve optimum energy efficiency (energy management in accordance with ISO 50001). Predictive, demand-oriented maintenance is available as an option to keep life cycle costs to an absolute minimum.
Innovative – The adaptive 3Dadvanced control
The adaptive 3Dadvanced control algorithm orchestrates all components in your Kaeser compressed air systems. As a result, just the right amount of compressed air power is provided to suit the specific needs of the application, with maximum energy efficiency.
The unique adaptive 3Dadvanced control continuously analyzes the relationship between various parameters (e.g. switching and control efficiency), and pro-actively calculates the optimum combination from a range of many in order to achieve optimum efficiency. Not only are starts and stops taken into consideration, but so too are idling and frequency converter losses. Moreover, the compressed air system's pressure performance value is optimized and average pressure is reduced.
Options: Communications modules: Profibus DP, Profinet IO, Modbus RTU or TCP, EtherNet/IP.
