After a rigorous decision-making process – which saw a panel of experts carefully review every entry in detail – the Refrigeration Ancillary Product of the Year award was made to Danfoss Drives’ Enhanced VLT Refrigeration Drive FC103. The judges were impressed with the drive’s use of refrigeration-specific language and terminology for configuration, which eliminates many of the perceived difficulties of using variable speed drives in refrigeration applications, and makes the FC103 particularly easy to install, set-up and maintain.
After the awards had been presented, the evening provided an opportunity for guests to give a little back to the ACR News Awards charity, Help for Heroes, in the form of a game of ‘Head and Tails’.
Danfoss Drives UK & IE country manager Alan Baird commented: “We were very pleased that the judges bestowed such an important accolade on our FC103 drive, but we weren’t really surprised as it’s such a great product. A lot of work has gone into developing and designing this drive so that it accurately matches the needs of the refrigeration sector. The feedback we have had from the end users has always been incredibly positive and the energy savings that can be achieved with the FC103 are, without doubt, impressive. Add to that the unparalleled support we provide for all our drives at every stage in their life cycle, and I think you’ll agree that the judges made a very good choice!”
