Scope of the program

The programme has been designed to cover 100 pre-defined Basic Model Groups, divided in 5 categories of Remote Refrigerated Display Cabinets, as specified in the table below. If a manufacturer has no cabinet in one of the Basic Model Groups, it means that he doesn't manufacture this kind of model. 

All details in the OM/RS documents below.

Definitions

Refrigerated Display Cabinet (RDC): Cabinet cooled by a refrigerating system which enables chilled and frozen foodstuff placed therein for display to be maintained within prescribed temperature limits.

Remote Refrigerated Display Cabinet (RRDC): Refrigerated Display Cabinet connected to a remote refrigerating unit.

Product family: Group of cabinets in accordance with EN ISO 23953-1:2004(E) Annex A [download pdf]

M-package temperature class: Classification in test room climate class 3: 3H2, 3H1, 3M2, 3M1, 3L3, 3L2, 3L1 according to Table 1 of EN ISO 23953-2:2015 and 3M0 (-1°C; +4ºC). 

*For cabinets with night covers and lighting the M-package temperature class is only based on the second test part b) of EN ISO 23953-2:2015 chapter 5.3.2.7 with 12h day and 12 h night.

Average Heat Extraction Rate (Φ24-deft or HERavg) [W]: According to EN ISO 23953-2:2015 chapter 5.3.6.3.2, with a measurement interval of 20s according to EN ISO 23953-2:2015

Evaporating temperature (qmrun or Evap T) [°C]: According EN ISO 23953-2:2015 chapter 5.3.6.3.

Refrigeration Electrical energy Consumption (REC) [kWh/day]: According to EN ISO 23953-2:2015 chapter 5.3.6, calculated with the following formula:

RECRemote=(24-tdeft)xHERavgx(Tc-Tmrun)/(0.34xTmrun)

Direct Electrical Energy Consumption (DEC) with 12h lighting [kWh/day]: According to EN ISO 23953-2:2015 chapter 5.3.5.

TEC: for remote cabinets, TEC is the sum of REC and DEC

TECRemote = REC + DEC

Total Display Area (TDA) [m2]: According to EN ISO 23953-2:2015 Annex A rounding all terms in the formula to the second decimal.
