An intuitively operated control panel for refrigeration and gas-compression facilities was introduced at the Industrial Refrigeration Conference & Heavy Equipment Show sponsored by the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) this past March. The manufacturer, GEA Refrigeration Technologies, issued a press release at the time of the show which included details on the product.
Bochum, Germany-based GEA said its Omni™ control panel integrates and coordinates all required system components, and enables demand-driven and energy-efficient facility operation.
GEA said the control panel has a high-definition (1366 x 768 pixels) color display, an interface that “provides visualization, single- and multiple-finger gestures and the ability to monitor and control not only the relevant components of a refrigeration or gas-compression system made by GEA, but also those from other companies.”
Further, the company noted the ability to “access the documentation that can prove valuable during system commissioning and troubleshooting.”
Moreover, a standard Ethernet interface is included that enables the use of wireless technology and smartphone or tablet viewing capability. Authorized service staff and service companies can access the control system remotely. GEA Omni can also send email and text message notifications, which eliminates the need for hardwired annunciation, according to the manufacturer.
