The Advantages of Case Control Refrigeration Architecture
Case control architecture enables control of all refrigeration case elements to deliver precise optimization across the entire refrigeration system.
Improved Startup and Commissioning
Historically, refrigeration startup is a time-consuming process — making sure everything is synchronized and configured properly can delay store openings and cause retailers to lose money. One advantage of using case control electronics with EEVs is their ability to automatically set superheat. This eliminates mechanical valve adjustments and the use of gauges to monitor conditions while trying to manually establish superheat settings.
Case control’s advanced electronics monitor temperature and pressure in real time, responding automatically to changing conditions and reducing the time it takes to set superheat. Technicians simply enter the set point, and the case control takes over to manage the rest of the process. Concerns about complex case control configurations — especially related to manually monitor the P and I constant settings — have all but been eliminated. Today’s case control systems are equipped with adaptive algorithms that make this process much easier, providing results that are as good as (or better than) the most expert technician.
