Electronic Compressor Control

S a u e r Electronic Compressor Control

As technological advances continue, Sauer has developed

an intelligent compressor control solution using a dedicated
electronic controller: E CC

RESET ( // )

Sauer compressor electrical control systems have long

had the traditional ability to monitor and control the air
LED s indication compressor functions, such as manual and auto-Starting
and Stopping, and protection.
n STATUS: Green
Standby: intermittent flash Now, the new E C C electronic Compressor Control
Motor start sequence: fast flash
provides additional functionality and features associated
Running: continiuous
with maintenance and monitoring operation, as well as
n FAULT: Red compressor control and protection.
Shutdown error: fast flash
Start inhibit condition: slow flash
The E C C has moved beyond the basic regulation
of compressor functions to offer operators a greater
selection of integrated functions that cannot only
extend the life of the compressor, but add significant
User Interface benefits and maintenance reduction.

If you like to control more ME CC and ME C C

Sauer Compressors can also provide you with higher control n Overriding Control System
systems which are able to operate several compressors together n Consumption-dependent control of up to 12 compressors
in the same pressure range. Typical demands are also equal n All compressors operate in the same pressure range,
balancing of operation hours and a simple connection to super- no cascade control anymore necessary
vision management systems. n Lead / lag Control
n Allocation of priorities
Therefore Sauer Compressors has the new ME CC, for up to n Simple connection to overriding control like Modbus or Profibus
4 compressors, and the ME CC , for up to 12 compressors, n Easy connection between ECC and MECC/MECC + via RS 485 Bus
available in their range of controllers. n Alphanumerical Display language independent
