Improvements to Emerson Intelligent Store Discus
Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson has announced improvements to the second generation Intelligent Store Discus™ compressor platform. Integrating the performance of Copeland Discus® technology with Emerson’s proprietary diagnostics, this new compressor addresses the core concerns of supermarket facility managers, and provides clearer direction on facilities management decisions. Introduced to the market in 2004, the Intelligent Store Discus compressor was designed with advanced communications capabilities to allow contractors and end-users to better understand refrigeration system operation. Continuous improvements to the design have led to the development of the Intelligent Store Discus v2.1, which offers remote reset, compressor proofing, real-time power monitoring and diagnostic information, sources say.
"Intelligent Store Discus v2.1 goes beyond the traditional refrigeration compressor by providing store operators with a 'window' into the system," says Kurt Knapke, director, end-user sales, Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., Refrigeration Division. "This is the only semi-hermetic compressor that integrates traditional accessories into one electronic platform and acts as a sensor by gathering key compressor and system information, performing self diagnostics, and enabling remote diagnostics. Intelligent Store Discus has proven to be an extremely beneficial product for both technicians and supermarket end-users." The second generation of the Intelligent Store Discus compressor platform is available on all 2D, 3D, 4D and 6D Copeland Discus compressors.
