Sigma Control 2™

Master Controllers/Sequencers


Concerned about managing multiple compressors without a central controller? Without a compressor master controller, each unit must be manually set to respond to changes in air demand, leading to inefficiencies and higher energy costs. Additionally, the potential of VSD or centrifugal machines remains underutilised.

A Master Control system ensures that your air compressors stop and start according to the compressed air demand in your facility. Kaeser’s sigma air manager, SAM, monitors, and writes algorithms to monitor and operate your compressed air station to the best of its ability. With the addition of SAM’s monitoring system he tracks system performance and cost data, providing insights into improvement initiatives and enabling immediate verification of savings, such as those from leak detection projects.

Operators have the ability to monitor the system remotely via Ethernet connection and allocate air consumption costs accurately to different departments based on flow. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are also available from SAM, continually and instantaneously. These include hydro power costs, flow, pressure, and kW/100 cfm. Maintenance costs can also be reported, along with  alarms set to alert operators of system malfunctions or cost increases.

It's all about efficiency, reliability, and connectivity with master controllers, which offer the following benefits:

  • Optimization of compressed air and blower systems according to ISO50001 standards while maintaining pressure and flow setpoints.
  • Maximisation of energy savings and maintenance of equipment in optimal condition.
  • Monitoring of equipment for proactive maintenance, real-time data visualisation, and energy savings KPI tracking.

Looking to evenly distribute the load among your compressors? Our central controllers can ensure uniform wear across multiple machines, enabling more efficient service scheduling and cost reduction. Plus, VSD and centrifugal units will operate at their optimal points whenever feasible.

Did you find what you were looking for?

The system

A master controller is typically installed within the air compressor station, however options are available for locating them outside of the compressor room in more accessible areas. With the addition of Ethernet connectivity master controllers, such as Kaeser’s sigma air manager, SAM, can be accessed and monitored remotely from anywhere in the world.

When you speak to us, ask for an Air Demand Analysis. It will give you the performance data of your current compressed air system and show the savings you can generate. We offer a performance guarantee - if we don’t identify inefficiencies within your system which are equivalent to the cost of the ADA study, then the study will be free! And in the meantime, download the Ultimate Guide on Rightsizing your Compressed Air System. You can stop being frustrated that they were over promised and under delivered, and instead be confident with a radically different solution that serves your needs better at a lower cost.
