Users of leading industrial products and solutions company Atlas Copco New Zealand ’s range of G2-22 tank-mounted rotary screw air compressors can keep production and energy costs low and output high with the company’s highly advanced monitoring system.
“Our Elektronikon compressor controller system uses “internet of things” technology to enable remote monitoring and energy conservation. Bring your factory ahead into the race for Industry 4.0,” says Hussam Gabrial, Business Line Manager at Atlas Copco New Zealand.
The energy consumption of air compressors accounts for at least 80% of their cost of use. However, the Elektronikon compressor monitoring system is designed to circumvent this with calculated pauses in the compressor system where possible.
The system also features a dual pressure band, which keeps the pressure to the bare minimum required during downtime, such as during nights and weekends. The system can automatically adjust the speed of the main compressor motor depending on pressure requirements, and adapt the built-in dryer speed according to the customer’s needs.
“Elektronikon works as the ‘brain’ of the compressor by collecting data from sensors within the compressor, processing it and delivering you an overview,” Hussam says.
“Our experience of developing both hardware and software has enabled us to create a system perfectly designed to optimize compressor efficiency.”
The system can be integrated via a SMARTlink system to devices such as smartphones and tablets, allowing customers to monitor their equipment use over a secure network, with sensors in the system providing automatic alerts to these devices should any issues arise.
Smart, secure and sure to maximise productivity and automate the use of the top-of-the-line industrial products and solutions, Atlas Copco’s Elektronikon compressor controller system is the perfect method of keeping its customers equipment use efficient, safe and cost-effective.
