Sauer Compressors Group

Facilitating connectivity

Our aim at Sauer is to put you in full control of your compressor – and make controlling it as simple as possible.

Sauer ecc 4.0: Intelligent control for outstanding performance
You benefit from our one-stop-shop solutions. We manufacture both the compressor and the control unit, and even the software is developed in-house. This ensures the best possible performance, maximum compatibility and easy integration. Equipped with state-of-the-art microprocessors and communication technology, our intelligent controls enable highly accurate monitoring and control of compressed air and gas generation and supply. So you can rest assured that your system is running at maximum efficiency at all times.

 

How you benefit:

  • Compressor, control and software from a single source
  • Compatible with all standard interfaces
  • Easy integration and operation

Maximum connectivity

  • Compatible with all state-of-the-art bus technologies, e.g. Profibus and Modbus
  • Standard potential-free contacts such as Running, Off and Master Fault
  • Easy integration into higher level controls, e.g. plant controls
  • Outstanding performance and minimum downtime thanks to comprehensive monitoring

Master controls

Control management of up to eight compressors in a single network

The Sauer ecc 4.0 enables you to connect a total of eight Sauer compressors via the integrated Modbus protocol. In this case, a single controller takes over the master function so no separate master control is needed. Overall optimisation of the system can be achieved via lead-lag control, priority setting or operation within a pressure band. To enable you to create detailed schedules, the control comes with an easy-to-use table function.

 

Connecting to an external SCADA system

Sauer ecc 4.0 units can be connected to an external master control, e.g. SCADA, via any common communications protocol. The controller comes with an integrated Modbus gateway. Other protocols such as Profibus or DeviceNet are also available. This type of protocol enables all important data, such as pressure and temperature, to be displayed on the SCADA system to ensure the network’s safe operation and help optimise costs and availability.

 

  • No separate master control needed
  • Lead/lag control to optimize running hours for better service intervals
  • Easy connection with all common interfaces (e.g. Modbus, Profibus, etc.)
  • Integrated table schedule – different load/unload settings possible
  • Wizard assistant for easy parameter settings
  • Flexible integration into higher level systems
