Kaeser Kompressoren GmbH debuted the latest generation of its Sigma Air Manager (SAM) at the Fakuma trade show. SAM is a control system and web server that optimizes the availability and energy efficiency of compressors and blower stations.
The company in Coburg, Germany, said efficiency in compressed air production depends on how well the components work together. SAM has an industrial personal computer to control and monitor the system, but provide the user with full details of energy consumption and costs.
An integrated web server can display current operational status via automatically generated HTML pages.
Kaeser makes screw compressors, reciprocating compressors, dental compressors, vacuum pumps, rotary blowers, filters, dryers and air tools.
The company's U.S. unit, Kaeser Compressors Inc., is in Fredericksburg, Va.
