With increasing competition and decreasing margins, food retailers are searching for new ways to secure profitability. Danfoss, a leading producer of cooling solutions, has launched the Smart Store solution.
Danfoss Smart Store solution enhances food safety and brings down the energy bill by integrated control of refrigeration, HVAC, lighting, and other applications, connecting and optimizing supermarket from case to cloud.
The Smart Store comprises several features that significantly reduce the energy used by refrigerated display cases and freezers. Adaptive superheat, using electronic evaporators and valves to ensure that the level of refrigeration meets the exact needs of the system, can save up to 12% when compared to more traditional methods. Moreover, compressor load shedding in supermarkets can reduce energy demands by as much as 80% for short periods of time.
