Unlock Hidden Efficiency: The GA FLX VSD Upgrade Story

Did you know your trusty GA FLX holds untapped potential for energy savings? With a simple software upgrade, you can transform it into a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) powerhouse and slash your energy consumption by 50%. This fact-based guide unpacks how the GA FLX VSD upgrade works and why it matters.

The Efficiency Gap:

Traditional fixed-speed compressors, while reliable, are energy guzzlers, even when idling. Your GA FLX already offers a commendable 20% energy saving over those models, but it can do much better.

Enter VSD Technology:

Think of VSD as a smart assistant for your compressor. It continuously monitors air demand and adjusts motor speed in real time, eliminating wasteful unload cycles and minimising energy consumption. This translates to concrete savings:

  • Up to 50% lower energy bills: That’s not just a marketing slogan. It’s based on empirical data from actual GA FLX operations.

  • Reduced total cost of ownership: Lower energy costs mean more profit and a longer lifespan for your compressor.

  • Enhanced sustainability: Contribute to a greener future by minimising your carbon footprint.

The Seamless Upgrade Process:

  1. Gather data: Run your GA FLX for 1000 hours and receive a personalised energy consumption analysis. Based on your specific usage, this report reveals your precise potential VSD savings

  2. Unlock efficiency: Choose the convenient upgrade option via your Elektronikon controller or SMARTLINK.

  3. Remote transformation: Atlas Copco takes care of everything. The VSD upgrade licence is securely pushed “over the air” via SMARTLINK, transforming your GA FLX without downtime or service intervention.

Why Consider This Upgrade?

  • Over 80% of a compressor’s cost is energy-related. Reducing consumption is a strategic decision for both financial and environmental reasons.

  • The return on investment is clear. Boosting your GA FLX efficiency from 20% to 50% has a significant impact, delivering cost savings and a rapid payback.

  • Sustainability goals become achievable. Lowering your carbon footprint is not just a marketing buzzword; it’s a tangible outcome with a VSD-powered GA FLX.

This upgrade is not about sales tactics; it’s about empowering you with facts and data. Unleash the hidden efficiency of your GA FLX and experience the positive impact on your bottom line and the planet.
