Help, info needed, unknown part

Best As Friends
Another AS friend sent me a photo today asking what kind of part this is. And what function it has.
It is installed in an AS 310.
It looks like a compressor to me. In my 250 there is no such part, so I ask you. Thank you for your help..
best regards Peter

That is the air compressor for the rear air spring suspension on the 310. I don't know if your 250 has that suspension modification.

Air compressor. Air ride rear suspension.

Thank you for the quick response.
That was my idea to.
What is the way of working?

In my 250 is air suspension but without compressor.
Which is filled like the tires, or controlled, keeps the pressure for many days

best regards Peter

There is a leveling valve that adjusts the pressure in the air springs to maintain the proper ride height with varying weights and loads. This is done automatically.
