Presenting the latest generation of SAM 4.0 – the master control system for all your compressed air production and treatment components. It optimises pressure values, automatically adjusts compressor system air delivery to accommodate fluctuating pressure demand and optimises system efficiency based on control losses, switching losses and pressure flexibility. Moreover, the SAM 4.0 enables your compressed air station to take advantage of future services such as Sigma Smart Air, for predictive maintenance. All of these features not only boost operational reliability and efficiency, but also significantly reduce energy costs.
Best possible pressure quality, tailored to specific needs
This is in no small part made possible by Kaeser’s adaptive 3-Dadvanced Control, which takes into account additional factors, aside from switching losses (start/stop), that affect compressed air system energy efficiency. These include control and idling losses, frequency converter operation and pressure flexibility (average increase above required pressure). The patented optimisation method predictively calculates the optimum achievable configuration and adjusts the connected components accordingly – all based on the specific pressure required by the user.
When machines talk
The SAM 4.0 supports operation in 30 languages, while the easy-to-use 12-inch colour touchscreen shows at a glance whether the station is operating in the ‚green zone‘ from an energy management perspective. Operating status, pressure history, free air delivery, power consumption, as well as maintenance and any error messages can be easily displayed and analysed – both in real-time and retroactively. Using a PC and network connection, this data can be accessed conveniently from anywhere, not just at the machine itself. This not only gives users peace of mind and lays the foundation for digital products in the pipeline, it also enables energy management in accordance with ISO 50001.
The far-reaching benefits of the SAM 4.0 are expanded even further when users take advantage of Kaeser’s Sigma Network. Based on Ethernet technology, the powerful Sigma Network is a closed and secure network that has been specially developed to support optimal monitoring and coordinated control of compressed air stations.
SAM 4.0: Future-ready
Moreover, the SAM 4.0 is versatile in other ways. An interface for plugin communication modules lends itself to flexible adaptation to accommodate future requirements. The SAM 4.0 is up to date with the latest trends and ensures the reliable, cross-system exchange of data and information.
SAM 4.0: Upgradable
The SAM 4.0 is designed to accommodate potential future compressed air system expansion. A straightforward software upgrade allows for expansion with no need for additional investment in new hardware.
Established in 1919 as a mechanical engineering workshop, Kaeser Kompressoren is a family-owned business and today is one of the world’s leading compressor manufacturers and compressed air systems providers. Kaeser’s production centres are located in Coburg (main plant) and Gera, Germany. The company has approximately 6000 employees worldwide.
Kaeser’s comprehensive product range comprises stationary and portable rotary screw compressors, stationary and mobile reciprocating compressors, vacuum pumps, rotary blowers, filters, dryers, air tools and accessories. Furthermore, Kaeser’s state-of-the-art compressor control systems with advanced IT technology take compressed air efficiency to the next level and beyond. Both users and the environment therefore benefit from the consequent energy-savings.
Subsidiaries and authorised partners in over one hundred countries ensure that users are able to enjoy all of the benefits that the very best in compressed air engineering has to offer. Key markets include the EU, the United States, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region. Kaeser owes its enviable reputation not only to the exceptional efficiency and quality of its products, but also to its reliable field service. More recently, the other industry-leading services offered by the company – such as operator models for compressed air stations, concepts within the framework of Industry 4.0 and predictive maintenance – have increasingly moved to centre stage.
Kaeser’s many years of strong growth and expansion are directly attributable to its passion for innovation and strict quality standards. Both are driven by the hard work and dedication of its employees, whose expertise, combined with ongoing professional development, keep them attuned to the very latest technology. The company’s opening-up of key global markets in recent years has also created many additional jobs and secured existing ones, both in Germany and around the world.
The company is headed by Thomas Kaeser, Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing, grandson of the company’s founder, and Tina-Maria Vlantoussi-Kaeser, Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing.
