Industrial applications place special demands on communications technology, particularly in the field of machine-to-machine communication. It must be robust and locally manageable, as well as globally-compatible and also capable of transferring large data volumes quickly and securely. The system must also ensure maximum data integrity and provide the necessary real-time properties required by the process. The KAESER SIGMA NETWORK meets all these requirements and more.
Together with the SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 compressed air management system, the KAESER SIGMA NETWORK creates a perfectly matched secure infrastructure for intelligent services within the advanced scope of Industrie 4.0 operating environments. If required, operating data from the compressed air station can be securely transmitted to the KAESER DATA CENTER via a broadband connection.
The combination of remote diagnostics and demand-oriented predictive maintenance ensures maximum compressed air supply availability and complete system effectiveness.
- Prevention of unplanned and planned downtime (malfunctions / maintenance) through evaluation of operating parameters, such as load operating hours and temperatures
- Increased energy efficiency through monitoring of key operating parameters such as airend discharge temperature, pressure dew point, differential pressures (filters), leakage rates, pressure and flow rate
- Service costs reduced by up to 30% through optimised servicing and avoided repairs
- Demand-optimised compressed air system control throughout the system's entire life-cycle
