A normal ACO regulator without CompacTi ensures continuous flow of gas even when a bank of cylinders become empty and can be viewed on the changeover knob. We call this a Physical Status.
Physical Exchange Status
– When the ACO shows a physical red window on the knob it may not have used all of the available gas in the cylinder. Particularly in cold weather or high demand situations where some of the LPG may not have evaporated inside the cylinder.
CompacTi App and device delays the notification based on the parameters set in CII allowing more of the residual LPG to be used. This is displayed in the App by a red indicator and green background (2) in the device panel. We call this the logical status
When the Changeover and CompacTi device have determined all available gas has been used, the logical status displays red indicator, red background (3) and is ready to be exchanged.
