Latest update will include redesigned electronics, improved service access and additional communication capabilities ST. LOUIS, January 21, 2016
— Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc.
, a business of Emerson
(NYSE: EMR), announced it is in the final stages of launching the latest update to its Copeland Scroll™ Outdoor Refrigeration Unit (X-Line). Building on the X-Line’s industry-leading energy efficiency and application flexibility, the latest update will be available early summer and will include improved electronics and serviceability as well as additional refrigerant options.
Updated X-Line 2.0 units will come standard with advanced CoreSense™ diagnostics and protection and will be able to operate in extreme environmental conditions, including high and low ambient temperatures as well as coastal regions. Updates will also include:
- Consolidation of multiple control boards and modules into a single, new electronics module
- CoreSense™ Diagnostics and CoreSense™ Protection with onboard error logging of up to 50 time-stamped alarm codes
- Two-way communication to allow remote diagnostics and management of system operation
- Removable hinged door
- Viewing window to allow quick visualization of status codes without opening any panels
- Medium-temperature units equipped with Copeland Scroll ZS*KA multi-refrigerant scroll compressors
“The addition of multi-refrigerant scroll compressors in the medium-temperature units will allow them to operate using a broad range of refrigerants, such as R-404A, R-407C/A and R-134a,” said Ben Picker, Copeland™ product manager, Emerson Climate Technologies. “New options approved by the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy program like R-448A, R-449A and others will continue to be added as they become available.”
The capability to operate many different refrigerants will also allow X-Line 2.0 units to be applied to both service replacements and new installations.
The updated units, available for both cooler and freezer applications ranging in size from 1.5 HP to 6 HP, will be produced in Sidney, Ohio. This move will help better adapt to the regional requirements of North American customers, including product options and customer lead times.
