Heat Transfer Products Group LLC (HTPG) has released its new EcoNet Command Center for use with EcoNet Enabled Unit Coolers. According to the company, the programmable Command Center has an intuitive graphical touchscreen interface that makes it simple to use. The remote mount display allows for EcoNet Enabled Unit Coolers to be programmed, monitored, and troubleshot outside of the space being cooled. This enables the user to get a true picture of the walk-in’s condition and easily make any necessary corrections. One display is able to control up to 32 devices including the Command Center.

The EcoNet Command Center includes everything in the box to quickly install the device on a wall outside of the walk-in. System set up is performed with the touchscreen installer settings to specify cooler or freezer operation, select refrigerant used, evaporator type, configure EXV type, defrost run times, superheat setpoints, space temperature, and more. The device’s homescreen provides a snapshot of the system and allows the user to adjust basic settings, time and date, system status, and service and support screens.

Company officials said the EcoNet technology saves energy in refrigeration systems through precise superheat and space temperature control, fan cycling, and controlling how often the system goes into defrost based on compressor runtime. It eliminates unnecessary defrosts, maximizes energy efficiency with less compressor runtime, reduces liability by eliminating icing issues, reduces fan speed to 50 percent during off cycle to save energy, and reduces temperature fluctuations by regulating defrosts for improved product quality.
