Mobile app for compressor monitoring

1 min read

Atlas Copco has launched a mobile app for site-wide remote monitoring of compressor systems.

The Elektronikon app for smartphones and tablet computers enables users to monitor their compressors from anywhere on their site remotely. Koen Lauwers, VP marketing of Atlas Copco's industrial air division, said: "With the Elektronikon App, Atlas Copco takes user-friendly distribution of essential compressor room operation data to the next level." The app links to the Elektronikon Mk5 controller in compressors and dryers, which has an internal website allowing for real-time data to be sent over the intranet and viewed on a computer or via the app. Multiple compressors and dryers can be combined into one installation. Using the app, managers and engineers can monitor the installation's real-time status, running hours, analogue inputs, running/stopped status and much more. As well as tablet computers and smartphones, the app runs on devices like the iPod Touch. It is designed for iOS (Apple) and Android operated mobile devices, and can be downloaded from iTunes or Google Play. Customers with an existing Atlas Copco compressor with a Mk5 Elektronikon can use the app after updating their software.
