Emerson Announces Improved Product Performance for Copeland Scroll® UltraTech® Compressors

ST. LOUIS, January 26, 2009 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced today that recent design enhancements have resulted in significantly increased energy efficiency for Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressors. With as much as a 200 watt reduction in power consumption, systems equipped with Copeland Scroll UltraTech can better meet market needs for higher SEER and full load EER ratings.

With its revolutionary modulating two-step capacity design, the Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor provides superior comfort by reducing humidity and allowing precise temperature control. Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressors deliver higher full-line efficiency than any other compressor technology, providing more opportunities for contractors to offer their customers improved comfort and energy savings.

“Copeland Scroll UltraTech has experienced significant growth, due to the growing need for higher energy savings,” said Karl Zellmer, vice president of sales, Emerson Climate Technologies, Air-Conditioning Division. “Despite the challenging market conditions, higher SEER systems with Copeland Scroll UltraTech continue to experience double-digit growth. With these efficiency improvements, Copeland Scroll UltraTech will be even more imperative to the growing 16+ SEER market where comfort and energy savings are important attributes to homeowners.”

In addition to offering breakthrough comfort and energy savings, Copeland Scroll UltraTech is remarkably quiet at both full and part-load capacity. With the Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor, two internal bypass ports enable the system to run at 67% part-load capacity for superior efficiency and humidity control. Based on demand, the modulation ring is activated, sealing the bypass ports and instantly shifting capacity to 100%.

The Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor is a part of the Emerson Climate Technologies UltraTech communicating system, an integrated network of industry-leading technologies that delivers the ultimate in comfort and efficiency. By utilizing ClimateTalk™, the UltraTech components can have two-way conversations, sharing information on configuration, operation and monitoring. With UltraTech systems, there are no additional wires to run or dip switches to set, providing confidence in the installation. A “Call for Service” alert displayed on the thermostat and onboard Comfort Alert® diagnostics also provide active protection from severe faults, improving system reliability and performance.

Copeland Scroll UltraTech earned a Gold Dealer Design Award, given by the ACHR NEWS in 2004.  Learn more about Copeland Scroll UltraTech.
