Model R2
Automating Duplex Air Compressors

Duplex Compressor Controller

The Model R2 brings digital precision and control to duplex reciprocating air compressors. Install and immediately realize the benefit of a digital alternator for the pumps, maintaining equal run time between them. Equally alternating compressor pumps reduces the maintenance, extends their lives, and improves their performance.

Perfect Pressure

Digitally set high and low points and the Compressor Controller will monitor and self-adapt to reliably maintain air network pressure within the preset pressure band.

Digital Alternator

Prevents overload by digitally alternating between pumps for even run time and uses smart sequencing to distribute natural wear and tear equally between the pumps.

Scalable

Growing or shrinking compressed air assets has never been easier. Compressor Controllers intelligently connect to one another easily allowing scalability in pneumatic needs. 

Automation

Our embedded expert controls optimize the air compressor performance based on live feedback. Now you can forget your compressor unless an alarm indicates otherwise.

How The Compressor Controller Works

COMPRESSOR START

The controller continuously monitors environmental conditions and compressor pump temperature. Connected to a controllable vent valve, it starts the pump unloaded and closes the valve when it is warmed up, reducing startup current and preventing the compressor oil from being contaminated by water.

BALANCED RUN TIME

The Compressor Controller evenly cycles run time for each stage of a duplex air compressor, preventing overloading and optimizing the air compressor system performance. Even wear and tear of the pumps reduces the individual burden on each and extends their life.

CONDENSATE REMOVAL

Using a math driven procedure, the Compressor Controller drains condensate when it is actually present, automatically expelling it through the drain valve with minimum air loss. This maintains a better, more consistent air pressure without unnecessary waste, improving the performance of air tools.

IN THE SHORT-TERM

Immediately upon installation, the Compressor Controller will decrease the water in the air lines and air compressor water traps, reduce energy consumption, stabilize the network air pressure, and decrease the unnecessary wear and tear on the compressor pumps.

ONE BUTTON METRICS

Simplicity is the key. The Compressor Controller has a single button to display valuable metrics about air compressor operation including: PSI, compressor pump operating temperature, compressor cycle time and Hobbs hour meter.

IN THE LONG-TERM

Artificial Intelligence within the Compressor Controller learns the patterns of how the air compressor operates and makes adjustments over time to improve air compressor performance and ensure uptime. Over time, you can forget about your air compressors unless you hear the buzzer ringing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does this system compare the other compressor controller systems?

It Does not. We have found that most systems that we have seen are very costly and requires a considerable learning curve – we designed ours to be inexpensive, effective and simple to use.

Can you customize the compressor controller?

Yes, We regularly work with customers to add or extend the functionality of the compressor controller, if you have an interest in customizing your compressor controller, please contact us.

What is the maximum number of compressors I am able to connect?

Unlimited, There is no limit to the number of compressor controllers that can be linked together with our Compressor City networking standard.

What is the warranty on the Compressor Controller?

We offer a 15 day, no questions asked return warranty and a 1 year parts and labor warranty. For full terms see our warranty page.

Do you ship outside the US?

Yes we do ship outside the us, however we only ship a minimum of 10 controllers or more per order outside the continental us.
