An operator / integrator should be able to remotely activate / deactivate (via the Main Control System) the generation of compressed air. It should be possible to select from different operating modes for the Compressed Air System.

For the operators / integrators process monitoring, the Main Control System provides access to standardized state machine information, alarms, warnings, and events. The operator monitors the generation of compressed air by accessing operational data of the Compressed Air System via the Main Control System. The Main Control System shall provide actual values of e.g. pressure, flow, inlet / outlet temperature and power consumption. Actual values of other Compressed Air System CASParts (e.g. sensors) should also be offered. To analyze historical data of Compressed Air System operation within the Main Control System, an operator / integrator may browse archive data in the Main Control System.
