Boge Announces Innovative Combined Control for Compressor Stations


Boge announces new product Airtelligence Provis 2.0 which allows to increase the efficiency of the entire compressor system and saves costs.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

Boge is announcing a new revolutionary product that will help companies increase efficiency and save on operational costs. The airtelligence provis 2.0 controls complex compressor stations of up to 16 rigid or frequency-controlled compressors of various makes in an intelligent and consumption independent way. The control visualizes central parameters (system pressure, volume flow rate, compressor status and operating times, etc.) on the web server in a clear manner. In addition, up to 24 accessory components, such as refrigerated air dryers, filters, fans, dampers or sensors can be integrated. Based on the actual compressed air consumption, the airtelligence provis 2.0 determines the increased or reduced demand and automatically selects the ideal compressor combination. As a result, users ensure consumer-oriented, energy-efficient and in particular cost-oriented operation of their compressed air systems.

Compressed air exactly as required
The PLC control with an intelligent control algorithm makes a pressure forecast based on the actual consumption data and also includes the reaction times of the connected air compressors. This ensures that the compressors are always activated at the optimum point of time and that the specifically required compressed air rate is provided at a minimum energy input. The airtelligence provis 2.0 optimizes load and no-load times by reducing or avoiding frequent cycle behaviour. In addition to an optimization of the delivery quantity, the customers can also select an operating hour or maintenance hour optimized mode for the compressor station.

Intuitive Display
Despite its sophisticated functions, the airtelligence provis 2.0 is easy to program and parametrize. On a high-quality 9-inch TFT colour display (800 x 480 pixels) with LED black light, parameter assignment of the control is made intuitively on the touchscreen. The touchscreen visualizes, for example, data about the current operating status, progression charts for volume flow rate and pressure profile, the current CO2 emissions, trend displays with historical data as well as the pressure dew point. An integrated USB connection enables the loading of software updates or a subsequent parameter assignment.

Simple installation, maximum safety
For the startup of the compressed air system, the relevant compressors and components are easily identified via ModbusScan and comfortably integrated. Performance data of BOGE compressors are stored in the airtelligence provis 2.0 and will be assigned automatically to the compressors in the network. New standards regarding transparency and clarity are set by the airtelligence provis 2.0 with the browser-based visualization that can be integrated through an Ethernet interface into an existing network structure. The visualization offers a comprehensive alarm management (e.g. active fault messages by email) and the possibility of remote monitoring with an analysis and subsequent evaluation of the files through reports and data export.

Short amortisation
Combined control systems generally pay for themselves within a short time, since the consumption-dependent activation and deactivation of the compressors leads to significant energy savings. With the airtelligence provis 2.0, these savings are particularly high due to the intelligent control behaviour.
