How compressed air users improve their preventive maintenance and reduce their compressed air plant downtime by connecting their KAESER SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 to their remote monitoring dashboard.
The KAESER SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 is a compressed air management master system that makes air generation and treatment more intelligent, reliable and efficient. Above all, by operating in a network called the SIGMA NETWORK, the KAESER SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 controls your compressed air plant to achieve optimum performance. In addition, you can find more information about the SAM 4.0 here.
For real time remote monitoring, the SAM 4.0 offers two communication interfaces:
KAESER CONNECT is only a web user interface of the SAM 4.0 and doesn’t facilitate proactivity However, the communication module allows you to to enable predictive maintenance of compressors and associated equipment. Therefore, by connecting an affordable IIoT gateway to the communication module, real time monitoring and sensor data is made available to all stakeholders to allow rapid response and sustain machine uptime.
Air compressors have many built-in sensors that can be read from the communication module. For instance, by setting a threshold on a sensor reading, you can automate the creation of a preventive maintenance task and replace an element when it is actually necessary.
When an unexpected event occurs on the machine, the message code can trigger an email or SMS noti cation to be sent to the relevant engineer. Therefore, with the correct messaging, the engineers know what to expect before they get on site to x the machine.
Air compressors are to be maintained based on their usage, which makes things complicated when it comes to scheduling human resources. However, with real time monitoring, the actual machine uptime is continuously analyzed and the next preventive maintenance date is updated accordingly.
The communication module is as KAESER part and must be supplied by your local KAESER agent.

The IoT gateway harvest and processes the SAM 4.0’s data, and sends the results to our cloud based platform using MQTT, a secured machine to machine protocol.
We have several hardware options, starting at $199 excl. GST.
