Airleader Master Controls

Airleader Master Control, with more than 10,000 installations, is a well established compressor management system. The web-based system provides worldwide access to all compressor data, cost information and charts.

This project is an example of how awareness of compressed air costs can act as a catalyst for change. The plant personnel acted on this knowledge by seeking help from compressed air service providers who could provide innovative solutions to their challenges. The Airleader control system not only increases the efficiency, but allows personnel to constantly check and correct the system to maintain optimum efficiency.
“The Airleader compressor management system that is installed here at Herman Miller, Inc. has become a very valuable tool that we use to control our compressors and monitor our air quality. This system saves us energy by maintaining our air demand with the most efficient set of compressors and allows us to monitor their performance. The quality of our air is also monitored with high and low limit alarms set for pressure and dew point, this allows us to respond quicker when events occur that could affect our manufacturing processes.”

Airleader has been a great product for us to offer our customers. MPG has the most unique system with four variable displacement compressors out of the five compressors in operation being controlled by Airleader, and it has worked out great. The Airleader system is continuously used as a showpiece for us.

Performance features to ensure efficiency and safe operation:

Worldwide Access

Complete data access is available at any time and from any place via the internet using a graphic display format or via a tabular report. History can also be retrieved including consumption, pressure, and compressor status (load, idle operation, failure, standby, off, free air delivery of speed controlled compressors).


Connection of various peripheral equipment (e.g. temperature sensors, flow control unit, flow meter, pressure dew point, plant pressure profile, operating state of dryers, airless drains, filters, etc.)

Intelligent "Self-Learning" Control

The AIRLEADER is designed to continuously balance demand and supply, enabling the most efficient compressor combination to work at all times. A permanent consumption calculation ensures efficient operation of interconnected compressors at all times.

Control Transparency

Unlike traditional control systems, crucial efficiency related parameters are visually displayed. This provides a transparent log of compressor station behavior and its ongoing efficiency.

Consumption Display

Display of true compressed air costs/day; load costs, idling costs; absolute cost transparency.

Maintenance Reminder Function

System automatically issues service interval alerts.
