SelfChill Cooling Unit:
The core component of our solar cooling systems
The core of every SelfChill system is the SelfChill Cooling Unit. This consists of an evaporator plate and a highly efficient compressor powered by photovoltaics. The in-house developed control system, which was specially designed for this system, ensures the maximum exploitation of energy resources.
The solar-driven SelfChill CoolingUnit produces cold. With a conventional insulated box, one SelfChill Unit offers a cooling capacity comparable to a conventional solar refrigerator.
Plug & Play for direct drive or battery connection
Our Solar Cooling Unit SelfChill® is suitable for direct connection to a 12V PV Panel or to a charge controller (12/24V) if batteries are used. The cooling unit is already filled with refrigerant(R600a) and ready to use. The copper tube between the evaporator plate and compressor is flexible to adapt to the geometry of your insulation box.
Integrates 3 temperature sensors and digital thermostat
The integrated temperature sensors are used to control the temperature of the evaporator plate, inner chamber (Water or Air) and to log the ambient temperature. Through the calibration of parameters (via SD-Card) you can modify the set points and compressor speed for different voltage ranges. Therefore, having 100% control of your final solar cooling system.
Integrated control unit with data logging and visualitation
The integrated adaptive control unit allows a connection to your smart phone via Bluetooth in order to visualize and log all temperatures, battery voltage and compressor speed. In addition, all values are continuously saved into an SD card for further analysis.
