SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 – Key technology for Industry 4.0 / The Internet of Things (IoT)
Future real-time monitoring of various sensor data will not only allow rapid response to unusual operational states,
but will also form the basis for optimum service planning: Thanks to intelligent forecasting tools, you will already know what to expect in advance. This capability ensures maximum compressed air supply reliability. Users also benefit from further cost savings, since service work is performed exactly when required as demand dictates.
SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 is the core of your air compressed air station and provides the key technology required to take advantage of future services within the Industry 4.0 / IoT operating environment. As the central "brain" of a compressed air system, it handles control tasks and streams data into the KAESER DATA CENTER.
This master controller opens up new possibilities to enable predictive maintenance of compressors and associated equipment.
Up until now, maintenance was performed only following detection of a fault or during the course of a scheduled service appointment.
The SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 concept makes it possible to initiate maintenance measures before the fault occurs and, therefore, to avoid downtime.
The sensors and SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller integrated in the machine determine and process variable data and forward them to the SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 in real-time. Special software then transmits the information to the KAESER DATA CENTER where it is analyzed in real-time, too.
Central monitoring and processing of operational information is also performed in the KAESER DATA CENTER where measures for preventive maintenance are initiated as required. This ultimately means that maintenance is carried out precisely as needed, which in turn saves time and money and ensures maximum compressed air availability.
