New Commercial Copeland Scroll Variable Speed Compressor and Drive Deliver Maximum Cooling and Heating Efficiency
  • ​Launch of ZPV063 (10hp) and ZPV096 (15hp)
  • Reliable Emerson solution for reduced design time, cost and speed to market

AACHEN (GERMANY), March 18, 2014 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), is expanding its Copeland Scroll Variable Speed product offering with the launch of new commercial compressors and motor control drives. The new 10 and 15hp ZPV Variable Speed compressors with their drives offer a wide speed range from 16 to 120 Hz that delivers enhanced seasonal efficiency as well as precise cooling and humidity control to improve the comfort level and reliability in process applications. They enable significant energy savings and Ecodesign compliance for heating and cooling applications.

The Copeland Scroll Variable Speed compressor and its design enables system
manufacturers, building owners and contractors to experience a new level of comfort
thanks to precise temperature and humidity control across a wide range of conditions. It delivers excellent low speed performance and reduced sound during cycle transitions in reversible systems and defrost. In addition, an expanded operating envelope provides the greatest flexibility in design and desired condition with a high turndown ratio of 120-16 RPS, for less cycling, higher precision, better dehumidification and best seasonal efficiency.

This new commercial range is offered as an Emerson solution with a Control Techniques variable speed motor control drive, which offers many useful features. The drive is specifically optimized for the compressors, including customized parameter settings for quick and easy setup. When the compressor and drive are paired together, the drive delivers proactive operating envelope safety control, resonance avoidance, and eliminates the need for a crankcase heater. Also, the drive supports a number of communications platforms like RS485 Modbus, smartcard / SD and I/O slots for system integration. Both compressor and drive are a reliable Copeland™ qualified solution for reduced design time, cost, and speed to market.

The first model from this new Commercial Variable Speed range can reach a capacity of 38 kW alone and up to 64 kW when used as a qualified tandem assembly. ZPV063 will be available from summer 2014 onwards. The ZPV096 model extending the capacity range up to 85 kW per circuit will be launched in 2015.
