The Danfoss ERC 102 is an electronic refrigeration controller that regulates all energy-consuming parts in glass door merchandisers and vending machines.
Danfoss has introduced the ERC 102, the first in a series of electronic refrigeration controllers. This 0.5 W controller is designed to operate between 50 and 300V at 50 to 60 Hz. The mini computer uses four inputs and four outputs, algorithms, and input from multiple sensors to regulate all energy-consuming parts in glass door merchandisers and vending machines. The interface enables individual setting of more than 500 parameters, including the daylight saving mode, compressor operating times, canopy/cabinet lighting schedules, evaporator/condenser fan control, and variable temperature control. Manufacturers have the ability to configure the controller remotely using an external docking station.
