We can split refrigerated display cabinets in two types:

  • Remote cabinets have a common central condensing system which supplies several units with the refrigerant. The cabinets have a fixed location and are connected with pipes and wires to the central compressor rack and controller unit.

  • Plug-in cabinets work like a household fridge and have the compressor, condenser and controller unit built in the cabinet itself. They only need a power supply.

Both systems come with several advantages and trade-offs.
