Atlas Copco releases its first mobile app to the compressor market. The Elektronikon® App is directly linked to the controllers in Atlas Copco’s compressors and dryers. Users can monitor their installation anywhere, anytime on their smartphones or tablet computers. The Elektronikon® App is designed for iOS (Apple) and Android operated mobile devices.
The new Elektronikon® App has been released along with the new GA 30 to 90 (and VSD) oil-injected screw compressor. Previously, compressor operators could already monitor their installations’ performance over the intranet thanks to the Elektronikon® Mk 5 controller. Koen Lauwers, Vice-President Marketing of Atlas Copco’s Industrial Air Division comments: “ With this Elektronikon® App, Atlas Copco takes user-friendly distribution of essential compressor room operation data to the next level.”
The status of your installation, at your fingertips
The Elektronikon® Mk5 in every compressor and dryer has an internal website that allows for real-time data to be sent over the intranet. One or multiple compressors and dryers can be combined into one installation. With the app, users can monitor that installation’s real-time status, like running hours, analog inputs, running/stopped status and much more.
Both the Elektronikon® controller and the app are available in the same 32 languages.
The app has been optimized for tablet computers and smart phones, but also runs on devices like the iPod Touch. The app is designed for iOS (Apple) and Android operated mobile devices and can be downloaded from iTunes or Google Play (search for “Elektronikon”). Also customers with an existing Atlas Copco compressor with a Mk5 Elektronikon® can use the app after updating their software.
