CoreSense™ Makes Copeland™ brand Compressors Intelligent

MILAN (ITALY) / BIRMINGHAM (UK) March 27/13, 2012 – A Copeland™ compressor is the heart of a refrigeration system. Now Emerson’s CoreSense™ technology introduces also intelligence in its new semi-hermetic Stream compressors. That is the first product range to offer this feature as a standard to the European market. CoreSense uses the compressor as a sensor to monitor the mechanical and electrical information of it and to provide features such as:

  • Advanced compressor protection
  • Diagnostics
  • Communication
  • Power consumption monitoring

CoreSense goes beyond basic motor protection and provides advanced protection against mechanical failures due to oil circulation issues, high discharge temperature conditions, locked rotor and electrical failures voltage imbalance, single phasing and low voltage. The Diagnostics feature is a handy tool to service technicians for a quicker troubleshooting. All the valuable diagnostics and operating information of the compressor are stored in an organized way in the EEPROM memory on board. CoreSense Modbus communication enables a remote monitoring and reduces regular visits to the field site. Thanks to the open protocol, users can use it for communicating with different types of pack controllers used in refrigeration systems. The QR code (Quick Response) on the module housing provides quick and easy access to the troubleshooting information on smart phones. Finally CoreSense helps to indicate the value of power consumed by the compressor. This information can be used to assess energy costs and to make sure that the compressors are working normally under different operating conditions without any abnormalities. CoreSense addresses the needs of system manufacturers (OEMs), contractors, installers and end-users who are involved throughout the value chain.
