Atlas Copco: VSD pioneer and still miles ahead

vsd revolution
Atlas Copco invented the variable speed drive and never relinquished its position as the technology leader. What does that mean specifically? It means that Atlas Copco has always been the market leader when it comes to the three most important attributes of VSD compressors: Efficiency, reliability and connectivity Let’s take a closer look at each of these three attributes, why they matter and how Atlas Copco stands out.

Efficiency

Atlas Copco, the pioneer of VSD+ technology saves 50% in energy costs compared to fixed speed compressors. We have developed an ingenious interior permanent magnet (iPM) motor, which sets a completely new standard with regard to efficiency. It is oil-cooled and keeps the motor running on its optimal temperature. Making it more efficient than the traditional air cooling.

Reliability

Designed to last toughest environments, Atlas Copco VSD+ technology is built with top-quality components. The VSD+ compressors are extremely reliable and sturdy even at ambient temperatures of up to 46°C.  The electrical cubicle of the inverter can withstand temperatures of up to 55°C. The latest Atlas Copco VSD compressors feature an IP66-rated drive train that keeps out dust and moisture.

Connectivity

With the Elektronikon® controller linked to the SMARTLINK monitoring system, all you need is a mobile device and an Internet connection to guarantee that your VSD+ compressor is running optimally while you enjoy a time-off. Atlas Copco uses OPC UA communication technology in compressors that makes the operation much smoother. The technology establishes a single language for all industrial equipment.
