The Xi-Series controllers (X4i, X8i, X12i) operate compressors only as needed and dynamically match the most energy efficient compressors in a particular system with compressed air demand. They enable users to operate one or more variable-speed compressors concurrently to minimize wasted energy. These controllers allow users to manage the compressed air system at the minimum required pressure without compromising the reliability of the compressed air supply.
Xi-Series Provides Ancillary Labor, Maintenance and Resource Utilization Savings
Versatile Networking: manages up to four (X4i), eight (X8i) or twelve (X12i) positive displacement air compressors from any manufacturer, located up to 1.2 km (4,000 feet) away from the controller, and ancillary equipment.
Energy Control Mode: Adaptive control logic dynamically selects and utilizes the most efficient set of compressors in a particular system to meet air system demands.
Anti-cycling: continuous monitoring of system pressure and rate-of-change; uses advanced control algorithms to prevent unnecessary compressor cycling.
Single-point Control: Manage multiple compressors to one optimal control band or target.
Priority Compressor Selection: reduce energy use by programming units or groups for optimum utilization and/or operations planning - including equalized usage.
Custom Pressure Selection: four programmable pressure profiles -optimize system operation for specific production requirements.
Controlled Operations: fully adjustable time parameters help implement smooth, controlled schedule changes from one target pressure level to another.
Real-Time System Scheduling: configure control features including system standby and system prefill based on a real-time schedule.
