Emerson Climate Technologies Digital Scroll technology is rooted in a simple yet effective method of capacityModulation Capacity Method Digital Scroll Technology Inverter Technology Compressor capacity can be changed by varying the relative amount of time in the loaded and unloaded states, which are changed by opening or closing the PWM valve. Capacity is time averaged summation of loaded and unloaded states, and its range is continuous from 10%- 100%. Regardless of capacity, the compressor always rotates with constant speed. Compressor capacity can be changed via the inverter control circuit. Capacity is changed by changing the motor frequency and, hence, compressor speed. The modulation capacity range is in steps, from 47%-130% (frequency ranges from 30-100Hz). The system can run at high frequencies for only short period of time since this increases both oil circulation rate and the motor temperature. " id="pdf-obj-0-2" src="pdf-obj-0-2.jpg">

Compressor capacity can be changes via the hot gas bypass circuit. Capacity is changed by opening or closing bypass solenoid valves of a power control compressor. For a 2-number twin rotary compressor, the modulation capcity range is only 8-step.

Multiple-Step Compressor Compressor capacity can be changes via the hot gas bypass circuit. Capacity is changedEnergy Efficiency (COP) Excellent. No inverter loss and low power consumption in the unloaded state (only 10% of full load power) mean low average power consumption and high partial load efficiency. Digital Scroll Technology Average. Inverter loss accounts for approximately 15% of Inverter Technology Multiple-Step Compressor total power consumption. Inefficient hot gas bypass method must be used for low capacities. Liquid injection must be used under conditions of high ambient temperature. Good only at 50% and 100%, where modulation doen't require hot gas bypass. Poor in the steps where hot gas bypass must be used. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)* Digital Scroll High. There is no inverter loss and hot gas bypass is never needed, thus, saving energy throughout the year. Technology Multiple-Step Compressor Average, because inverter loss always occurs and hot gas bypass must be used at low capacities. Low, because hot gas bypass must frequently be used. Room Temperature Control Precise. Continuous and step-less capacity modulation is achieved throughout the operation range allowing a faster response to low requirement changes. Digital Scroll Technology Inverter Technology Average. Room temperature stabilizes near the set temperature after a long warm-up period.
