GERMANY: Compressor manufacturer Bitzer has published a video explaining how to design, configure and commission its Varipack frequency inverters.

The video shows how to design a Varipack frequency inverter for the requirements of a refrigeration system with a Bitzer compressor. There are two versions to choose from, with the required steps explained in English or German. Users also require the Bitzer software, the Best (Bitzer Electronics Service Tool) software and a Best interface converter or an Ethernet cable. The two software tools are available free of charge on the Bitzer website.

In combination with a Bitzer reciprocating compressor, the Varipack offers an intuitive commissioning process that doesn’t require any specific knowledge about frequency inverters. Its advantage is that it adjusts to suit the system’s current cooling demand, reducing both energy consumption and running costs.

The Varipack series is suitable for refrigeration systems, air conditioning systems and heat pumps, and can be integrated into both systems with single compressors and compound systems. The Bitzer software enables application-specific selection of the frequency inverter, while the Best software promotes easy operation and monitoring.
