Device Enhancements Offer Improved System Efficiency for Commercial Refrigeration Applications
ST. LOUIS, September 29, 2010 – Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced enhancements to the Control Link Anti-Condensate Controller (ACC), an advanced controller for refrigeration case heaters designed to ensure anti-condensate heaters are activated only when necessary. The Control Link ACC is now equipped to control a larger variety of cases and provide compliance with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive. The new model also offers ease of installation with new quick connect terminals and a smaller physical size.
The Control Link ACC, available for use in full and half-height glass door refrigeration cases, modulates heaters to maintain a measured case’s surface temperature just above the ambient dewpoint. This advanced level of control minimizes refrigeration case condensation and delivers up to 70% greater energy savings than controllers that rely on store dewpoint alone.
Updates to the Control Link ACC also meet requirements for compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) legislation, which requires electronics within the European Union be free of various substances including lead and mercury.
“These key enhancements make the Control Link ACC available to a wider range of supermarket and convenience store operators,” said Mark Dunson, president, Retail Solutions division. “Now more retailers can utilize the Control Link ACC to reduce the operational costs of their refrigerated glass door cases, without sacrificing product visibility.”
The newly reduced size of the Control Link ACC allows it to be easily installed on a variety of locations, including the case’s doorframe and the electrical raceway. The Control Link ACC can be used either as a stand-alone device or as a component networked to Emerson’s Intelligent Store architecture, an integrated suite of products proven to improve maintenance, energy and operational savings.
