ST. LOUIS, January 22, 2008 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced that the Copeland® SystemPro® condensing unit is the winner of a 2008 AHR Expo Innovation Award in the refrigeration category. In addition, an Innovation Award Honorable Mention was awarded to Emerson Climate Technologies for their White-Rodgers Thermostat Kit with Wireless Remote Sensor in the tools and instruments category.
The Copeland SystemPro condensing unit is designed for applications with limited space availability that utilize fractional horsepower-sized condensing units, making it ideal for many retail refrigeration applications, including reach-in cases, food prep tables and under-counters. With factory installed, sealed and tested EK filter driers and tri-color hermetic moisture warning indicators in place, this condensing unit significantly reduces the amount of necessary on-site installation materials, tube prepping and brazing. Unlike other units that require four on-site braze joints, the Copeland SystemPro requires only one, preserving the entire unit and protecting it from potential contaminants that can result from on-site brazing. The Copeland SystemPro fractional horsepower condensing unit provides higher system reliability, a solution to working in restricted spaces, reduced expenses and less business disruption and equipment downtime.
The new White-Rodgers Thermostat Kit with Wireless Remote Sensor (1F85RF-275) includes a universal thermostat for single stage multi-stage or heat pump systems and a wireless indoor remote sensor. The remote sensor comes synchronized to the thermostat and can be placed up to 200 feet away. This sensor can be adjusted up or down by as much as four degrees at the remote location or, for public areas, can be locked out to prevent unwanted temperature changes. Temperature control can be prioritized or averaged between the thermostat and remote sensor.
