New and Underutilized Technology: Compressor Cycling Controller
The following information outlines key deployment considerations for compressor cycling controllers within the Federal sector. This information spans:
A compressor cycling controller is an add-on system compliments existing controls to maximize (optimize) compressor operation. Software dynamically analyzes compressor cycles, achieving an overall reduction in run time without causing over cycling.
Compressor cycling controllers are applicable in most building categories and refrigeration equipment.
Key Factors for Deployment
Energy efficiency gains are achieved without affecting cooling capacity.
