Heat recovery function for heating

This function offers refrigeration combined with heating all in one system. The ground-breaking solution allows for increased opportunity to cut running costs by utilizing exhausted heat from refrigeration and transferring to the energy source for heating.

16,7kW* of hot water for free

* Under the condition: ambient temperature 32°C, evaporation temperature -10°C. 100% Partial load.

What is heat recovery function?
New solution example.
Heat recovery system can produce both heating and refrigeration.

Electric expansion valves (EEVs) are ready with 7 different sizes to meet precisely the field demand.

Intelligent controller with compact chassis.
· MPXPRO control fully pre-programmed for MT and LT on the same panel
· Compact structure size: 300 x 220 x 120mm
· Necessary cables, temperature and pressure probes as standard equipment
· Ultracap technology as standard equipment
· Smart defrost functions, advanced superheat control, light and showcase curtain management, etc

Electric expansion valves (EEVs) line-up.
· EEV´s E2V-CW with 3/8” ODF copper fittings for high pressure applications (CO2)
· Operation refrigerant temperature: -40 T 70°C
· Maximum operating pressure for all the models 03, 05, 09, 11, 14, 18, 24 (MOP) 140bar
· Maximum operating pressure difference for 03, 05, 09, 11, 14, 18, (MOPD) 120 bar and 24 (MOPD) 85bar

Modbus compatibility with monitoring system

Panasonic CO2 condensing unit CR Series can be supervised through major monitoring system such as CAREL, Eliwell and Danfoss. Monitoring systems ensure the recording, monitoring and reporting of temperature conditions of entire CO2 condensing units system.
Monitoring system.
Standard boss & boss-mini
AK-SM Series*
* M2M1-10 gateway (Model code: FDS021) is required in addition to the monitoring system. M2M1-10 gateway is a local supply.

New CO2 service checker

Supporting your technical tasks on the field, including commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting.

Main features:
· Reading and recording variable technical parameters
· Main technical parameters available*: pressures, temperatures, opening of expansion valves, states of solenoid valves, rotational speeds of the gas-cooler fan motor, frequency and compressor’s current
· Setting change of operating values possible
· 2D graph visualization for the detailed analysis
· Monitoring an alarm status, for example the status of the compressor oil level

Panasonic will supply the DRX file where the Panasonic unit’s library is included with the acquisition of the CO2 service checker.

* Please check all the parameters available in the manual.

To use it, is necessary to download free Device Manager software from the Eliwell website:
