List of products by brand Carel
CAREL is one of the world leaders in control solutions for air conditioning, refrigeration and heating, and systems for humidification and evaporative cooling. We design our products so as to bring energy savings and reduce environmental impact, thanks to the combination of the most advanced technologies and customised services, aimed at optimising the performance of equipment and systems. Our solutions are used in commercial, industrial and residential applications.
We recognize environmental issues as a corporate priority
Francesco Nalini, CAREL Group CEO
The company’s claim, “better control, better environment”, perfectly sums up the CAREL model, representing the starting point and the final goal that together encompass the process of designing, manufacturing and marketing our products and systems. An innovative consulting and technological partner, CAREL anticipates market demands, proposing energy-efficient solutions with guaranteed high performance.
Continuous improvement is our modus operandi, the method that allows us to create a standard without being constrained by it and then gradually succeeding in surpassing it to define an even higher-level standard.
Research, innovation and technology are the keys to our success: for almost fifty years, the customer’s needs have been at the centre of the elements we develop to ensure functional and aesthetic differentiation.
Our Group’s strength lies in the integration between the different areas; our overall vision, experience and transversal competencies mean we can exceed the boundaries of individual products and represent a single partner that can identify integrated application solutions.
Innovation as a business model
Research & Development are at the heart of our commitment. Every year more than 5% of consolidated revenues is allocated to Research & Development, in order to provide cutting-edge solutions that anticipate customer needs. Out of more than 2,000 employees, around 13% work in Research & Development. CAREL also has a number of laboratories devoted to thermodynamics and humidification, true areas of excellence in their reference sectors.
Most of our employees are aged between 30 and 50, with an average age of around 41 for men and 39 for women.
Our commitment to continuous training across all company areas to ensure development of our personnel, both in terms of technical skills and soft skills, is also significant.
Our responsibility to our customers far exceeds the revenues we generate. Indeed, the products we make are components that account for approximately 2 to 10% of the value of our customers’ finished products, depending on the application
As these elements are hard to replace, to guarantee the supply of our components even in extremely difficult situations, we have adopted a disaster recovery system that sees most of our products manufactured in at least two different sites.
The CAREL DPW* series serial probes are devices used for applications in the air-conditioning, refrigeration, heating and air handling sectors. These are installed in combination with the controllers that feature the serial connection. As well as the wall-mounted room probes, industrial and duct versions are also available.
This electric current is measured by a current transformer: by varying the level of water using a fill solenoid valve and due to the evaporation process, the current, and consequently steam production, can be modulated. Due to evaporation, the level of water decreases and must therefore be topped up. As the steam produced does not carry mineral salts, the salt concentration in the water and therefore the conductivity increases, and has to be periodically diluted by draining part of it using the drain pump and replacing it with new water.
EVD4 is an evolved PID controller complete with driver for stepper motors specially designed for the management of electronic expansion valves in refrigerant circuits. It features sophisticated control functions
and can be used in many operating configurations in refrigeration and air-conditioning systems, such as:
- PID control of superheat with protection and safety compensation functions;
- PID control on one measurement (pressure or temperature);
- positioner for electronic expansion valves controlled by 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10 Volt signal.
The device is configured and the address set via serial interface and the user interface software is stored in non-volatile memory.
