SICK Launches Cost-Cutting Energy Monitoring of Compressed Air

Featured Product News

As manufacturers face rising energy bills, SICK has launched the FTMg with Monitoring App, an Industry 4.0 solution that helps them see the data they need to reduce energy consumption through better control of compressed air. The SICK FTMg with Monitoring App enables production and maintenance teams to monitor compressed air continuously so they can reduce leaks, improve operating efficiency, and cut costs.

Using data from strategically-positioned SICK FTMg flow meters, the cloud-based SICK FTMg Monitoring App visualises a wealth of both real-time and historic data. It enables continuous energy management, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of compressed air systems from any internet-enabled device.

Targeted Energy Reduction

The SICK FTMg with Monitoring App is a scalable system that can target the compressed air energy use of individual machine cells through to entire production or logistics halls. With no programming needed, it can quickly start visualising continuous compressed air data in a way that is easy to use and interpret. As well as enabling more sustainable use of resources, the data insights support better operational efficiency and help achieve reduced carbon targets, contribute towards ISO50001 Energy Management certification or compliance with the UK Government’s Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
