AK-PC 572 MiniPack controller – CO₂ made easy for small store formats

Monday, April 15, 2019

It's not too long ago that we here at Danfoss stood up and boldly declared, "We love CO₂!"

This proclamation contained all the passion, knowledge, and hard work that has gone into shifting the food retail industry from HFCs towards natural refrigerants. Our engineers have developed solutions that help make the refrigerant transition even easier for our customers – and now we're ready to introduce one more.

The new AK-PC 572 MiniPack controller provides a complete pack solution for small store retailers looking to benefit from using CO₂ as a refrigerant. While compact and cost-effective, it's includes much of the technology contained in the AK-PC 781 pack controller – a product known for over a decade of proven reliability in CO₂ applications.

The AK-PC 572 MiniPack also makes using CO₂ much more approachable, even for those who have little-to-no experience with it. It contains all the essential functionality of a dedicated CO₂ controller, but with reduced complexity and ease of use. It comes with a pre-configured wizard, optimized for the fast and simple setup of CO₂ systems.

Start taking advantage of the benefits CO₂ has to offer in small store formats. The AK-PC 572 MiniPack makes it easy.
