The Compressor Controller – Model R1 is simple to install, easy to use controller designed for electric single pump reciprocating air compressors. It’s a true manager-in-a-box controller system that optimizes performance, reports conditions, and delivers savings at all times. It is a durable, real time computing system that uses feedback and analytics to control air compressors based on what is happening in the moment rather than the imprecise binary options provided by switches and timers. Proactive, self-learning control reduces energy consumption and lowers costs while improving the safety and reliability of compressed air systems making the Compressor Controller a purchase that pays for itself year after year.
The Compresor Controller is a control system designed for electric single pump reciprocating air compressors, The only 3rd party tested system that saves energy, improves air quality and reports operational problems.
The Compressor Controller retrofit kit delivers full system automation and can be installed on virtually any brand reciprocating air compressor.

Intelligent air tank moisture control: With Real-Time feedback, it directly controls the air tank drain valve to expel condensate when it is present without excessive waste of air in the process. This maintains a much drier air quality and significantly reduces the lifetime energy footprint of the air compressor by reducing the number of pump cycles.
Compressor pump smart start guards against oil contamination: Controls the compressor pump unloader valve with Real-Time feedback on the power consumption to guarantee a properly timed loading sequence that reduces startup current draw (up to 20% ) and lowers the oil moisture contamination in pumps.
Automatic air line rupture detection: Detects air line ruptures in the air network and stops the pump preventing further damage to equipment and personnel.
Automatic overheat protection: The controller observes the pump head temperature and automatically manages any connected auxiliary fans to assist with maintaining the pump temperature below a threshold.
Digital management of pressure band gap: Precise digital monitoring of the system pressure digital system allows the Compressor Controller to control the low and high set points without drifting, even when accounting for weather and climate changes/differences.
Cycle and Hour usage meter: The Compressor Controller counts both the pump cycles and operating hours, displaying this information on the LCD screen. This information allows passive insight into performance and can be used to appropriately schedule maintenance.
Compressor City: Each Compressor Controller is equipped with a compressor city function
allowing owners of multiple reciprocating air compressors of different types, sizes, and brands to connect them seamlessly together as a system to always satisfy peak-demand air requirements and synchronize maintenance intervals.
