Universal AutoDual Model AD-115/230 (now with Pressure Transducer to +/-1 psi differential)
Universal AutoDual Starter Combination Model ADS (now with Pressure Transducer to +/-1 psi differential)
Universal AutoDual Model ADSE
Universal Autodual Model ASPSS
Same internal control functions and features as the ADSE, with the addition of internal motor starters for a single package, turnkey solution to automatically sequence 2, 3 or 4 compressors. (2 Compressor package shown)
High efficiency system operation is guaranteed by our exclusive MARK III Microprocessor controller, providing automatic dual control, or our exclusive AutoSmart timed-out-to-stop function for each compressor, and operate only the minimum amount of compressors required to maintain your shop air requirements.
Controls 2, 3,or 4 comprssors in automatic lead/lag mode, or manual selection, with totally unloaded soft starts, and autodual/autosmart idle to timeout shutdown on all compressors. Converts any reciprocating or constant run rotary two compresor system to high efficiency operation. Includes all starters.
Multiple Lead/Lag Compressor Control:
Manual 2 or 3 Compressor Control- Manual Switching between two or three AutoDual Controllers/Compressors.
Automatic Lead/Lag Switching - Available for 2 Compressor systems, Automatic lead compressor cycle switching (user selectable from 10min to 7 Days). Lag compressor automatically cycles to provide additional air under high load conditions, with full AutoDual functionality (2 Autoduals required). Includes manual override to hold either compressor in lead or lag mode.
Automatic Time-of-Day Start/Stop - Internal clock timer mounted inside ADS size enclosure, automatically turns compressors ON in the morning and OFF in the evening. Available for all single or dual compressor systems. Day-of-week adjustable for daily or weekend usage. Full manual override. Can be configured to AUTOMATICALLY drain plant air lines and system upon evening shutdown (required by law in some states)
Autodual Simplex Lead/Lag Controller Simplex controller runs two compressors in Lead/Lag mode with ONE Autodual controller. No control connection required between units. Ideal solution for Intellysis or "T" control units. Incorporates full Autodual functionality on second compressor only, yet gives lead/lag functionality to both compressors. Manual and full automatic/manual switching available.
Emergency Shutdown - External 6' Power cord connects to any non-powered normally closed (N.C.) emergency shutdown device, i.e., low oil pressure, low oil level, high air temperature, power line monitors, starter overload, or any of the above combinations. Failure of any of the above shuts the compressor motor down 20 seconds after receiving fault signal, activating flashing light on the Universal AutoDual.
Remote Shutdown Signal- Sends a remote fault signal (24VDC, 40ma) from AutoDual to a control room sensor, or auxiliary remote audible or visual alarm.
Oil Pressure Switch - Din Mounted Low Oil pressure switch (10 P.S.I) triggers AutoDual Emergency Shutdown feature in low oil pressure condition.
Automatic Tank Maintenance:
Timed Tank Drain - Activates tank mounted solenoid drain for 5 seconds for every hour of compressor pumping time. Motor idle time does not affect the drain timer, saving energy and wasted air. Includes 6' Power cord to tank drain solenoid and Console mounted manual drain (test drain) button. Solenoid tank drain offered below.
Drain Duration Control -User selectable Drain "purge time". Adjustable for 5, 10, or 20 second drain duration. Longer drain duration time used in high humidity environments. Front panel user Selectable switch.
Tank Drain - Din Mounted tank drain, used with timed tank drain feature above. Available in 110/220 Volts.
Nema 4 Packaging - Universal AutoDual enclosed in a durable, watertight NEMA 4 rated Enclosure. Great for outdoor or high contaminant applications.
Model ADS AutoDual Controller with internal Motor Starter - Universal AutoDual Controller repackaged in a 12" X 12" X 6" NEMA 1 rated enclosure with IEC type motor starter (110/230/460/575 VAC). Includes internal Control Voltage transformer on 200, 230, 460, & 575 Volt models. UL Approved up to 92 FLA (Full Load Amperes)
High Pressure Applications:
Model ADS/HP AutoDual Controller for high pressure applications - Universal AutoDual Controller repackaged in a 12" X 12" X 6" NEMA 1 rated enclosure. Unit has adjustable pressure deadband function and pressure range adjustment to 5000 p.s.i. (Low pressure control air is required for head unloading)
The Universal AutoDual ® is so effective it typically allows end users to recover the capital outlay of their entire compressor purchase within 3 years in energy savings alone. Here's how we do it:
Example: A savings analysis of a 25 HP, 2 stage, reciprocating or rotary screw compressor operating a factory that is producing 7 days per week on three shifts (8760 hours per year).
Total Annual Electric Energy Savings = 49,000 KwHrs/year
1st Shift: 2920 hours x .25 x 10.17 x .10 = $743
2nd Shift: 2920 hours x .60 x 10.17 x .10 = $1782
3rd Shift: 2920 hours x .80 x 10.17 x .10 = $2375 Total Annual Power Savings: $4900**
areas of higher KWH rates, such as Metro New York, at
0.15/KWH, the annual savings would be $ 7350.00/yr.

Consider this quote directly from the COMPRESSED AIR CHALLENGE,
"Compressed air is not typically viewed as a cost of productionbut it is anything but free. The generation of compressed air requires a huge amount of energyand a piecemeal approach to building a compressed air system serves to worsen the problem through leaks, mismatched supply/demand, and inappropriate uses. The result is unreliability, energy waste, reduced productivity, and higher operating costs."
