Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration’s Lead Lag Control System combines the functionality of a room thermostat with a staging controller to reduce staging control complexity. According to the company, the design of the system stemmed from its long history of providing redundant and multistage refrigeration equipment into a variety of critical applications. According to a 2014 Dealer Design Awards contractor judge: “Combining two functions is innovative, and I enjoy setting this system up. It’s wiring is simple.”
A combination of these factors led to the Lead Lag Control System winning gold in the Refrigeration and Ice Machines category of the 2014 Dealer Design Awards.
