A method and apparatus for controlling a compressor suitable for delivery of pressurized fluid to a pressurized fluid system, wherein the delivery of the pressurized fluid to the pressurized fluid system can be cycled on and off as a function of a temperature signal received from a temperature sensor. The delivery of pressurized fluid is turned off when the temperature signal exceeds a temperature limit value that is based on the backpressure caused by the pressurized fluid system. Time criteria can be superposed on the temperature limits for controlling the activation and deactivation of the compressor. A preferred area of application of the invention is in vehicle pneumatic suspension systems, including systems having multiple modes of operation.
