Sindelfingen, Germany: Compressor specialist, Bitzer has announced that it has updated its electronics service tool — BEST software — to help refrigeration and service engineers operate all Bitzer IQ products from their PC, with ease.
The software, the company said, provides users with a complete overview of the operating status of Bitzer compressors and condensing units, showing their configuration, permitting troubleshooting, allowing setting device parameters, analysing errors, viewing data logs and updating firmware.
The company explained that the new version 2.7, which was updated at the end of last year, allows the compressor’s current operation as well as historical data logs to be shown graphically. Furthermore, the units can now be switched to the American and imperial system of measurements. With Chinese and Finnish, the number of available languages has now been extended to eight, added the company.
Providing further details of update, the company said: Additional refrigerants can be selected for Bitzer components, for example, R450A, R513A, R1234yf and R1234ze in connection with CS compact screw compressors and with the protection device SE-i1 or R513A and R1234yf for the configuration of frequency-controlled CSV compact screw compressors. The update also includes the compressors CSVH26-200MY-40M, CSVW37-240Y-40A and CSVW38-290Y-40A from the same series. For the CM-RC-01 operating module, in combination with ECOLINE reciprocating compressors, the refrigerants R1234yf and R1234ze have been included. The company mentioned that for the condensing units of the ECOSTAR series, the help text for the list of alarms has also been optimised.
