All that's reportedly needed is an intelligent compressed air system. As opposed to most current frameworks for servicing, in which maintenance is performed either on request by the customer or at established intervals, the service presented is said to deliver predictive maintenance as well as maximum energy efficiency and availability without the risk of untimely servicing and additional costs for operators. As the system specialists for compressed air solutions explain, in order for users to benefit from the real-time display of operating, service and energy data, the compressed air station is networked via the Ethernet-based Sigma Network and controlled by the Sigma Air Manager 4.0 master controller. As a result, the real-time data management is combined with expert knowledge, the ability to detect potential faults and predictive maintenance. The up-to-date data lays the foundation for advanced energy management and makes it possible to maximize compressed air supply whilst minimizing life-cycle costs.
