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.

Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions

Before the doors open at the AHR Expo on January 15, join us at 8:30 a.m. for our E360 Breakfast. There you’ll get a firsthand regulatory update and gain insights during the contractor panel discussion as your peers share how they’re navigating in today’s ever-changing industry.

Because the regulatory world is dynamic, it can sometimes be challenging to stay current on the latest information. Jennifer Butsch, Emerson’s regulatory affairs manager, will highlight some of the latest regulations to help ensure you’re up to speed.

Then you’ll have the opportunity to gain perspective from the contractor panel discussion, which will be moderated by Talbot Gee, CEO of HARDI. We’ll explore how others are handling today’s challenging issues, evaluate new ideas and emerging technologies, and conclude with a Q&A session where you can pose some of your most pressing questions.


Afterward, you’ll be ready to hit the AHR Expo floor. We hope your first stop is the Emerson booth (#B2219), where you can take a close look at some of our exciting technologies:

  • Copeland Scroll™ Fractional Horsepower, Low-temperature Compressor — the AHR Innovation Award winner uses new liquid-injection and cooling discharge technologies to reduce compressor stress, meet federal regulatory requirements, and help achieve energy and sustainability goals without sacrificing productivity or efficiency
  • Emerson’s Supervisory Controls — an AHR Building Automation Award finalist, this total-facility platform helps retailers large and small monitor, optimize and control their refrigeration systems, HVAC, lighting and more
  • Copeland Outdoor Refrigeration Unit (X-Line) — see how leading retailers are saving space, improving efficiencies and reducing noise, rather than using self-contained or rack refrigeration systems
  • ProAct™ Software and Services — combine smart mobile alert software with ProAct service experts for continuous monitoring, full-time support and consulting
  • Copeland Scroll K5 Compressors — learn more about this family of digital and analog compressors that apply liquid and vapor injection for superior efficiency
  • Connect+ Software — see the unveiling of our newest software suite designed to utilize IoT to provide advanced operational efficiencies across a multi-site retail network

Register now to reserve your seat at this informative, idea-filled E360 Breakfast — a great way to start your day at AHR!
