The new Danfoss ADAP-KOOL Case Controls Solution for food retail applications drives down cost and takes user friendliness to the next level with a new smartphone app that simplify design, installation, service, and use. The solution includes four new products: new case controller platform, electric expansion valve, pressure transmitter, and temperature sensor – all designed for an optimum solution.
“For many food retailers, reducing costs is a number one priority”, says Ejnar Luckmann, Product Manager for case controllers at Danfoss. “At the same time, retailers need to ensure consistent refrigeration performance at all times so food safety is never compromised. Reaching both of these targets requires a refrigeration system that can automatically adapt to changing conditions.
Now Danfoss offers a solution that makes it easier than ever to save on adaptive and reliable food retail refrigeration: the new generation of the proven ADAP-KOOL Case Controls Solution. It delivers energy savings of 6-10% compared to the next best alternative, and it includes features that improve the user experience for OEMs, installers, and end users by simplifying design, installation, and service.
The AK-CC55 case controller relies on advanced Danfoss algorithms to control cases, cabinets, and cold rooms. User can, via a Bluetooth display, communicate with the controller using the new AK-CC55 Connect smartphone app.
The AKVP electronic expansion valve (EEV) series combines the existing AKV and AKVH series into a single solution, covering both HFCs and CO2. Thereby, it both reduces complexity as well as delivers several improvements.
The AKS 11 temperature sensor carries on the Danfoss tradition for reliability, robustness, accuracy, and fast response times, but with new features that makes life easier for the designer and installer.
The DST P110 pressure transmitter delivers high accuracy and fast response times in a sensor solution designed to resist extreme vibration, temperature change, and electrical interference.
Together, the four new products create a complete ADAP-KOOL Case Control solution that delivers significant benefits in all food retail applications.
For more than three decades, the ADAP-KOOL solution has been defined by the same basic values: robust, reliable, and adaptive display case and cold room refrigeration that ensures high food safety and significant energy savings. With the new generation of ADAP-KOOL, it is easier than ever to realize the benefits of those values in food retail applications.
“With the new generation, the system provides the same great value and now delivers a much better user experience, no matter if you’re an OEM, installer, service technician, or food retailer” concludes Ejnar Luckmann. “The new generation is more than a solution; it’s a way of working. That’s why we say, ‘ADAP-KOOL the way you work’”.
