AirLogix® is a proven, robust, control solution for centrifugal air compressors. Built on the Allen-Bradley family of PLCs, without any Case Controls proprietary hardware. Our controller showcases the greatest value in compressor controls. Easily expandable, fully customizable, with three times the life-cycle than the OEMs.

This user-friendly and open-source platform grants you full control over YOUR system. What sets our controller apart from any other on the market today is our unique control algorithms and methodology. Through decades of experience, we’ve designed a solution that completely automates the compressor, continuously adjusting to real-world, real-time cause and effect such as changes in ambient temperature and pressure.

Our thoughtfully designed HMI home screen provides an easy to understand and detailed machine information at a glance. Additional secure screens provide the ability to create and tailor personalized views to display the information that is of the greatest interest to you. We provide all of the tools needed to add, name, scale, configure additional I/O points, tune PID loops, take manual control of the valves, and much more for full customization.

Unlock the true potential of any centrifugal air compressor with AirLogix®.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

Dynamic Throttle Limit (DTL™)

Case Controls unique proprietary control algorithm which compensates for changes in ambient air temperature fluctuations. This provides for greater turn-down in centrifugal compressors resulting in improved energy savings and superior surge control protection.

Full Control HMI Functionality

Human machine interface (HMI) allows for the complete configuration, tuning, troubleshooting, and operation of the compressor. Complete with detailed information, data trending, and graphics for easy to use and understand control at the fingertips.

Industry Standard Automation - Allen-Bradley PLCs and HMIs

Built on the Allen-Bradley line of factory automation by Rockwell, Case Controls uses ZERO proprietary parts. This means customers are free to select from a worldwide distribution network and multiple vendors for Rockwell Automation Allen-Bradley hardware.

Documentation & Diagrams

Complete new documentation sets including wiring diagrams, user-manuals, part’s lists which thoroughly address set-up, tuning, troubleshooting and operations.

Software Back-Up Copies

Back-up copies of the specific buildout are provided on flash drives or memory disks and shipped installed in the PLC and HMI for insurance in case of hardware failures.

Ethernet/IP Communication

Standard communication protocol method is Ethernet/IP. Other protocols are optional for connection to any third-party system.

Plug and Play Retrokit

Tried and true control upgrades for OEM legacy controllers which make for fast and easy installation. By utilizing the existing enclosure, Retrokits are designed to fit with minimal additional work.

AirLogix® compatible with 3PX-Backbone™

This feature enables and permits the electronic integration of Case Controllers with numerous third-party controllers. A piggyback solution that negates the requirement of replacing all the controllers of a system.

Plug and Play Retrokits

AirLogix® can be configured for a quick plug and play installation. Typical installation can be completed in approximately four hours for compressors with the following OEM control systems:

• Ingersoll-Rand MP3, CMC, Xe
• Joy, Cooper, Cameron Quad III, Quad 2K

Retrokits include additional instruments and transmitters to complete installation. In some instances, the PLC requires a satellite enclosure due to space limitations in the existing enclosure
