“A meaningful upgrade” and “a great idea”
“This appears to be a meaningful upgrade to existing commercial refrigeration controls,” noted one judge. “This system simplifies the number of components required, integrating all pieces into an easy-to-install product. Adding control elements and data visibility without cumbersome sensors is a great idea! It’s a great option for those who have not yet installed advanced controls in their refrigeration units.”
Invensys Controls’ Eliwell EWPlus EO electronic microprocessor controllers comprise a new generation of devices designed to manage plug-in refrigerated cabinets with an integrated compressor. These new controllers use energy saving control algorithms that can deliver up to 39 percent savings in comparison with electromechanical controllers and up to 19 percent savings in comparison with electronic controllers while increasing operating efficiencies.
Invensys focused their design philosophy on:
• Night/Day operation: monitoring virtual door openings to detect the time of day to adjust the algorithms to reduce energy usage.
• Cabinet refill detection: sensing when warm product is added to the cabinet to adjust the regulation temperature as needed.
• More performance data: expanding computing capacity to derive more performance information from the basic temperature data to significantly improve energy management.
The EWPlus EO offers simple and flexible installation options with four models, controllers with removable/faston/screw connectors for increased wiring speed and flexibility, and a USB UniCard for customizing from one to many coolers quickly. Already being introduced into the production lines of several European manufacturers, the energy consumption and efficiency ratings were measured by Intertek, an independent laboratory qualified to carry out Energy Star certification tests. Electrically compatible with prior series, customers can rapidly implement new energy saving product portfolios that better control bottle cooler temperatures with greater sustainability.
