Due to the worldwide rising energy costs, the energy-efficient operation of refrigeration systems becomes a must. According to estimates, more than 90% of the refrigeration systems worldwide are not yet equipped with continuous control.

They have been optimized and set for a certain operating state/refrigeration capacity – which means that they operate outside the optimum in all other operating states, whenever less capacity is required. This results in a waste of valuable energy. In the future, systems without closed-loop control will no longer be acceptable.

This is why manufacturers of refrigeration systems are increasingly using electronic pressure sensors, in order to control pressure and thus the resulting temperature of the refrigerant with high precision.The pressure sensor R-1 has been developed specifically for this use and in practice achieve substantial savings in electricity costs for the operators.
