Two of Emerson’s refrigeration technologies were honored with recognition by the 2021 Dealer Design Awards program sponsored by The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration (ACHR) News magazine. The Copeland™ digital outdoor refrigeration unit, X-Line Series was awarded a gold rating in the Refrigeration and Ice Machines category. The Lumity™ E3 supervisory control took home a bronze award in the Commercial Controls category.

Now in its 18th year, the Dealer Design Awards program recognizes exceptional manufacturing of HVACR technology as well as product designs that benefit HVACR contractors. This year, the awards program received 117 entries, which were judged by an independent panel of contractors.

For the gold: The Copeland digital outdoor refrigeration unit, X-Line Series

Designed specifically for small-format operations, the digital X-Line Series is a compact condensing unit solution that provides refrigeration for multiple fixtures while delivering precise temperature control and significant energy savings. With 20 to 100% capacity modulation, proven Copeland digital scroll technology, large-capacity condenser coils, variable-speed fan motor control and smart controls, the digital X-Line Series is a superior solution for convenience stores (C-stores), small-format food retailers and restaurants.

Standard features include multiplexing capabilities, onboard diagnostics, connectivity, installation flexibility, ultra-quiet operation and corrosion resistance. In addition, expanded refrigerant approvals provide operators with multiple options for selecting a lower-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant that helps them to meet their sustainability and operational objectives. Many of the X-Line unit’s innovations — including faster, simpler setup, more diagnostics and better communication capabilities that improve reliability and reduce equipment downtime — are the result of direct customer feedback.

Bringing home the bronze: The Lumity E3 supervisory control

Launched in February, the Lumity E3 controller is the next generation in facility management and refrigeration controls. The E3 controller is powered by Emerson’s Lumity supervisory control software to provide food retail and foodservice operators with comprehensive control of critical facility systems. In addition to an intuitive, user-friendly and web-accessible interface, it offers customizable graphs and summary pages; smart alarms to detect, prioritize, troubleshoot and resolve issues; and a performance meter to fine-tune the performance of refrigeration fixtures and equipment.

The Lumity E3 controller’s simplicity provides operators with powerful control to manage and optimize energy use throughout a facility via built-in algorithms which support demand response, curtailment and load shedding programs. The E3 controller was designed to empower contractors and operators across a wide range of skill levels, helping them to work more efficiently, decisively and tackle the challenge of skilled staff shortages. And finally, the E3 controller is engineered for adaptability, providing operators with greater flexibility to revamp their store designs or expand their operations.

Our commitment to innovation

Both the digital X-Line Series and the Lumity E3 controller embody Emerson’s commitment to helping our customers attain greater temperature stability and certainty, improve food quality and safety, minimize equipment failures, curb energy use, and achieve regulatory compliance. The awards underscore our causes to lead our customers through complex technical, regulatory and economic challenges and deliver sustainable solutions that improve efficiency, reduce emissions, and conserve resources.

We are honored to be recognized by the 2021 Dealer Design Awards program and will continue to engage with contractors and end-users to identify ways to further improve our products and solutions.

[New Webinar] Make the Transition From E2 to E3

Facility management and supervisory systems have become essential tools for managing food retail facilities and their critical refrigeration, HVAC and lighting systems. To grow profit margins and achieve an ever-expanding list of operational and sustainability goals, retail operators must keep these systems running at peak performance and precisely optimized according to building occupancy schedules. In our next webinar, my Emerson colleague Sam Smith, director of product management, digital solutions, and I will discuss how upgrading from the industry-standard E2 to the new Lumity™ E3 supervisory control can help facility managers to achieve their goals while seamlessly running their day-to-day operations. This webinar will take place on Thursday, April 15 at 2 p.m. EDT/11 a.m. PDT.

Supermarket and convenience store customers depend on their preferred retailers to consistently deliver the high-quality, fresh and safe food offerings that they’ve come to expect. In addition to providing a comprehensive food selection, a retailer’s ability to deliver exceptional customer experiences in all aspects of their operation — from comfortable in-store temperatures to welcoming lighting — is part of what can differentiate them from their competition.

At the same time, store operators need to keep a close eye on other factors that can impact their bottom lines, such as refrigeration system performance, energy and other utility consumption levels, store lighting and occupancy schedules, refrigerant leak detection and much more. Establishing connectivity among critical systems via a building management system (BMS) and smart controls is essential to enable real-time visibility into all these key parameters of success.

That’s why Emerson is pleased to introduce the Lumity E3 supervisory control — the next generation in facility management and refrigeration controls. The E3 greatly expands upon the widely adopted E2 with more power, robust control capabilities, faster speeds and seamless connectivity. The E3 is powered by Emerson’s new Lumity supervisory control software and gives end users an intuitive touch-screen display on-site and a web-friendly interface for remote accessibility.

In our upcoming webinar — which is designed for end-users, contractors and OEMs — we will demonstrate how this significant upgrade places advanced control over compressor groups, condensers, walk-in units, HVAC and lighting systems at their fingertips.

Attendees will learn:

  • New features and functionalities of the Lumity supervisory control platform
  • How Lumity supervisory control software brings all of Emerson’s supervisory control devices under one software interface
  • Why the E3 was designed as a true drop-in replacement of the E2
  • How to gain instant visibility to all key systems, faults, statuses, and alarms
  • How the Lumity supervisory control platform enables control of critical systems with advanced refrigeration algorithms, building control strategies and network connectivity
