Companies looking to produce compressed air more efficiently are almost always making the right choice by selecting a model with a variable speed drive (VSD). By adjusting their motor speed to the air demand, these compressors conserve a lot of energy, which saves their owners a bundle in the long run.
However, there are now quite a few manufacturers that offer VSD models, so how do you know which one to pick?
Fortunately, the challenge of choosing the best VSD compressor is a lot less daunting than it may seem, because there is really only one answer: You go to Atlas Copco.
In addition, the system anticipates potential issues and alerts you before they become problems, which further increases uptime.
As the era of Industry 4.0 is now a reality rather than a distant future, Atlas Copco is a leader in the use of OPC UA communication technology in compressors. OPC UA is the common language that allows all of your equipment to “speak” with each other. Essentially, that means this technology ensures that your operation runs smoothly by making sure that every piece of equipment can effortlessly communicate with every other piece of equipment. Because your compressor is too important not to be part of your networked production, Atlas Copco has released its first range of OPC UA-enabled compressors.
With all of these advantages, it is pretty obvious why the answer to the question of which VSD compressor you should choose has to be Atlas Copco – at least if you want to operate at the cutting edge and invest in a compressor with unparalleled efficiency, reliability and connectivity.
