The HPC Kaeser Sigma Air Manager (SAM) is a compressor controller utilising the latest master control and web server technology, the SAM is an invaluable tool for ensuring optimised air system availability and energy efficiency.

The SAM features adaptive 3-D-Control which automatically ensures optimum energy consumption. Users therefore benefit from outstanding energy efficiency and user-friendly operation: Just input the required pressure and compressor performance data - the rest is done for you. Every SAM controller can present information on the compressed air system visually via an Internet browser using the standard SIGMA AIR CONTROL basic data visualisation system. Here you can read off the current operational state of the compressors, the status of the SAM operating panel, and maintenance and alarm messages. An optional data visualisation system can display information from the SAM's long-term memory on screen. This data includes graphic profiles of system pressure, air consumption, load/idle, compressor duty cycles and power consumption over a long period of time. All the operating hours' counters can be read out to coordinate maintenance & compressed air costs are immediately at hand, this option can be retrofitted in the PCMCIA slot.

The SAM 3-D controller exceeds the energy efficiency criteria required to be eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA's)
