The brain of your Smart Store

The Danfoss System Manager is the key component of the intelligent ADAP-KOOL® refrigeration and HVAC systems for food retail. The System Manager is the brain of the system, coordinating data to and from the individual refrigeration and HVAC controllers, including temperature data for logging and alarms. The System Manager can be set up to optimize different functions such as suction pressure and coordinated defrosting, resulting in significant energy savings and optimum temperature control.
