ST. LOUIS, March 6, 2012 – Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), announced today an expanded range for its award-winning next generation Copeland Scroll UltraTech™ compressor.

The next generation of the Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor offers improved performance and reliability, as well as improved sound performance.

Located conveniently in the control panel, Emerson’s CoreSense Diagnostics module strengthens the Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor by unlocking advanced capabilities for diagnostics. Advanced algorithms and capabilities allow technicians to diagnose the past and present state of the system for fast and accurate troubleshooting and less downtime.

“With next generation Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressors, contractors have more opportunities than ever to deliver improved comfort and energy savings to their customers, while leveraging the troubleshooting capabilities of CoreSense technology,” said Karl Zellmer, vice president of sales, Emerson Climate Technologies Air Conditioning business.

Developed for premium residential systems, the next generation Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor provides enhanced humidity control, greater efficiency and quieter operation to give homeowners increased indoor comfort levels, saving up to 25 percent on energy costs as compared to conventional HVAC systems.

With its revolutionary modulating two-step capacity design, 100 percent at full-load and 67 percent at part-load, this compressor maintains precise temperature levels and significantly lowers relative humidity, ultimately eliminating uneven cooling peaks and valleys and allowing for improved overall cooling comfort. The new Copeland Scroll UltraTech compressor offers customers a solution that provides part load SEER improvement of up to 3.5 percent and enhanced full-load EER performance (1.5-5.5% increase).
