Emerson Climate Technologies has launched the second generation of its Copeland Scroll variable speed ZPV2 compressor and EV2 motor control drive for residential and light commercial applications. Emerson’s Copeland Scroll variable speed technology was named Product of the Year at the 2014 AHR Expo.
“When we look at what homeowners want from their air conditioning systems—superior
reliability, lower energy costs and consistent comfort and temperature throughout the home—we see why modulating technologies are becoming increasingly important to the industry. Our second generation, variable speed ZPV2 compressors and EV2 drives are optimized to increase efficiency across a range of conditions while maintaining the reliability that Copeland Scroll technology traditionally delivers,” said Brandy Powell, vice president variable speed at Emerson Climate Technologies Air Conditioning Business.
The second generation Copeland Scroll variable speed ZPV2 compressor features intermediate discharge valves to boost efficiency, optimized scroll elements for variable speed performance, positive displacement oil pump for enhanced reliability in low speed operation and brushless permanent magnet (BPM) motor technology for maximum efficiency.
Integrated CoreSense technology is built into the new Copeland Scroll variable speed EV2 motor control drive for optimal compressor performance. Features include soft starting capability, controlled shutdown, scroll over temperature protection and high pressure cutout. In addition, the drive protects the compressor from operating outside of the design parameters and against electrical power variations.
The new Copeland Scroll variable speed compressors and motor control drives can enable system manufacturers to achieve industry leading 25+ Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and 13+ Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). Homeowners and small businesses have experienced greater comfort and annual energy savings of up to 40% with HVAC systems featuring Copeland Scroll variable speed compressors.
