Advanced data and analytic devices makes it easy to perform multi compressor monitoring. While our equipment offers onboard controls, it's recommended to invest in enhanced solutions for workload balance and maximum energy efficiency.

In covering the ES4000T controller, ECOntrol 6i multiple compressor control, and ICONS remote monitoring technology, we hope this guide helps you choose the best solution. The remote access and information these tools provide help reduce downtime and prevent overworking machines.

Not only does compressor monitoring lead to increased lifespan of your machines, it also contributes to lower energy costs.

ES4000T advanced control

Available for our rotary screw compressors, the ES4000T provides advanced control. With a large digital display, multilingual support, data analysis, and an online visualizer, the ES4000T helps your equipment run smoothly.

Also, directly built into the air compressor unit, it wirelessly uploads information to multi-compressor monitoring systems like ICONS.

Connect multiple units with ECOntrol 6i

If you're seeking seamless connectivity across multiple air compressor units, there's the ECOntrol 6i digital touch display. This single device helps prevent overheating and air loss. It will also equalize your production across all machines.

With ECOntrol 6i, you can reduce operational costs by maintaining consistent air pressure and receiving preventative maintenance notifications.

ICONS smart factory remote monitoring technology

While both the ES4000T and ECOntrol 6i are (optionally) built into our rotary screw air compressor units, ICONS is a complementary remote monitoring system. In addition to processing data from your units, it also sends email alerts when your equipment needs attention.

The information ICONS collects helps you properly manage and analyze your smart factory operations. Helping you perform accurate regularly scheduled maintenance, ICONS is useful for avoiding unnecessary downtime.

Investing in the latest innovations

Whether purchasing new equipment or upgrading existing machines, our versatile solutions are designed for nearly any air compressor. Our approach makes it easy to add monitoring tools to your set-up.

In most cases, you can add controllers to your machines, including the ECOntrol 6i. We've made it as easy as possible to maximize the lifespan of our equipment without replacing the whole unit.

However, if you've had your air compressors for a considerable amount of time, it might be worth evaluating the inner components. For example, our newest rotary screw units offer increased reliability, even in ambient conditions above 46C. In addition, they offer an IP55-enclosed drivetrain built to withstand dust and humidity.

Our latest next-generation screw compressors also improve air quality with pre-filtration mats and a high-efficiency air filter. This high level of purification keeps foreign particles outside your machine, minimizing wear.

Whichever options you choose for upgrading your smart factory, it's never a bad idea to start with monitoring tools. They'll help you decide if you're running at peak efficiency and what makes the most sense.

Routine certified maintenance and OEM parts

One of the main advantages of our monitoring tools is how they help with routine maintenance. If your equipment needs servicing, we recommend hiring certified technicians and using OEM parts.

Although third party servicers and aftermarket parts may be cheaper upfront, the long-term cost could be detrimental. As air leaks are a major cause of reduced efficiency, you'll want a perfect fit every time.

Lower energy use and carbon emissions

In a related article, we cover ways to cut energy expenses and carbon emissions. As part of this topic, it's recommended to invest in smart factory monitoring technology.

Mentioned above, these digital tools are useful for smooth operations with minimal waste. Since our team is always innovating, we're constantly working towards future standards.

Installing a smart factory system for air compressor monitoring
