Now experience your refrigeration system with new eyes. The setup and commissioning of sophisticated refrigeration systems in supermarkets or cold stores has never been as easy as it is with the E*LDS system control centre CI 4x00 with touch screen operation. Innovative functions support you in saving energy on a sustained basis, as well as improving the refrigeration quality of your food.

E*LDS system control centre CI 4x00 for refrigeration systems

Made for refrigeration technicians, with store managers in mind

The refrigeration technician can configure and parameterise all E*LDS components via the CI 4x00. Thanks to the modern touch operation and screen keyboard the input is intuitive. Intelligent input assistance provides additional support. With the aid of list views one can quickly gain a clear overview of the configuration and actual operating status of the refrigeration system:

  • All E*LDS components
  • Energy and consumption meters
  • Timers
  • SIOX extension modules with I/O assignment
  • Interfaces
  • Alarms and messages

With an authorisation concept which clearly separates diagnosis and configuration, the supermarket manager can e.g. quickly and reliably access data relevant to his needs such as 24h temperature lists for quality assurance in accordance with HACCP - and naturally, thanks to network capability, at any time on the office PC. Furthermore, energy and consumption data or temperature profiles can be called up in the form of diagrams.

State of the art refrigeration system management

The CI 4x00 sets industry standards for operating comfort, connectivity and performance. It is completely downward compatible with earlier CI 3000 store computers, however it is much more than a mere replacement. The new system control centre offers the following main advantages for the monitoring and management of E*LDS systems:

  • Quicker configuration and parameterisation thanks to the modern touch operating concept
  • Reduced energy consumption thanks to multi-stage energy and load management
  • Greater food safety via comfortable HACCP reports
  • Intelligent alarm functions with messaging via SMS, e-mail or voice message
  • Rapid system diagnosis
  • Reliable energy and consumption data capture (S0 & M bus)
  • Integration of standard meters for heat, gas/oil, water and electricity
  • Energy monitoring and reporting with graphic representations of consumption figures
  • High IT security through clear authorisation concept – from admin to the supermarket manager
  • Complete integration of building control technology (BCT) for automation across maintenance groups, e.g. for heat recovery via DDC interface

Interfaces for automation and networking

The CI 4x00 provides a variety of interfaces and has network capability (from CI 4400).
The CI 4x00 provides a variety of interfaces and has network capability (from CI 4400).

E*LDS is a regulation system for refrigeration systems enabling the robust networking of components such as pack controllers or case controllers undertaking decentralised regulation tasks. The higher order system control centre organises the central tasks. The CI 4x00 automates and monitors the various system functions while simultaneously serving as a comfortable front end for operating, parameterisation and (remote) maintenance.

The CI 4500 can operate up to 2 independent CAN bus segments. In addition, it is richly equipped with standard interfaces common in today’s refrigeration technology and building automation, amongst others Ethernet (TCP/IP), Modbus TCP/ RTU, M bus, RS232, USB (host & slave).

The integrated real-time clock with power reserve and the integrated interfaces for DDC modules (Digital Direct Control), allow the connection of the supermarket’s entire control technology.

Best replacement for the CI 3000

The CI 4x00 is fully downward compatible to the CI 3000. From March 2015 the predecessor model will no longer be built. However, it is far more than a mere replacement – the CI 4x00 defines new standards for operating comfort and performance.
