App for controller information
KoolCode by Danfoss is an app for Android and iPhone allows technicians and engineers to look up alarm, error, and status codes for refrigeration controllers as well as link up to the KoolApp library.
KoolCode by Danfoss is a KoolApp tool that provides access to Adap-Kool controller information. Using KoolCode, service technicians, refrigeration engineers and in-store technicians can look up alarm, error, status and parameter codes for a range of Danfoss refrigeration controllers with a three-digit display. The new tool offers three alternative ways to look up display codes:
- Quick code translation without knowing the controller
- Hierarchical controller selection among Danfoss refrigeration controllers
- Automatic controller identification using a QR-code scan
KoolCode is available for iPhone and Android mobile phone platforms, in both English and German. The new app joins the Danfoss KoolApp Library, which includes:
- Refrigerant Slider: Turns a smartphone into a user-friendly, quick pressure-to-temperature refrigerant converter
- CoolGame: Tests refrigeration know-how compared to colleagues around the world
- Fitters App: Troubleshoots problems and offers solutions
- Compass: Searches the most comprehensive compressor comparison database available on the market and suggests the best-matched Danfoss alternative
The KoolCode app is available as a free download from the Danfoss website or through iTunes.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
