There’s a dedicated ‘start function’ enabling auxiliary equipment to be pre-started prior to utilisation of any compressors. There’s a second ‘back-up control pressure sensor’ analogue input and further analogue inputs dedicated to ‘air treatment differential’ monitoring and ‘air low’ monitoring. The Metacentre XC is equipped with 8 dedicated ‘digital’ inputs, each having a defined function. Metacentre XC is equipped with 4 remote digital inputs that can be used as ‘input functions’ for any virtual relay. The Metacentre XC is also equipped with 10 remote relay contact outputs, the function of which is determined by the set-up of the equivalent ‘virtual relay’. As if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve added the ability to add up to 12 additional I/O modules to the Metacentre XC, collectively providing the ability to automate, control and monitor almost anything. There are literally millions of configuration possibilities!
Once you’ve chosen your preferred Metacentre management controller, we recommend that you select and order compressor management kits where available. Kits exist for Metacentre S, P, SX & Metacentre VX products.
Please note that the Metacentre SX & VX kits provide for the installation of up to 4 compressors only. Where more than 4 compressors are to be connected to a Metacentre SX or VX you will need to select additional compressor interface products. Please refer to the ‘Compressor interface products’ section of this document for more information on how to make your selection.
If you have selected a Metacentre XC, or if a kit alone cannot satisfy your total system requirements then please proceed to the next step in building your system; ‘Compressor interface products’.
Metacentre kit selection made? You just need interconnecting cable to complete your system!
