Vcolor 579/589

Vcolor 579/589

Controllers for aging and/or meat dry-aging cabinets and rooms
The Vcolor 579/589 controller can be programmed via parameter to manage the aging process only, meat dry-aging only or both. It has 3 analogue inputs for temperature, 1 analogue input for 4… 20 mA humidity transducers (which can also be used to read pH), 9 fully configurable digital outputs (which can be expanded to 13) and 1 modulating output which gives control of up to 10 evaporator fan speeds (the evaporator fan can alternatively be modulated using an EVCO inverter). In the Vcolor589 models, the modulating output can also be set to control variable speed compressors. The controller's firmware can control an ultrasonic humidifier from the Mistral series via the RS-485 serial port.
Intuitive user interfaces (with 5 pre-set + 4 freely configurable food categories) can be personalised to meet users’ needs, making the controller both versatile and easy to use. Users can access a total of 30 meat dry-aging and aging programmes (each of the aging programmes has 30 sequential phases whose duration, temperature, humidity and ventilation can be fully configured). The controller also has manual preservation cycles, automatic air exchange and pause/work cycles and optional sanitation cycles (using UV lamps or ozone) and product smoking cycles which can be managed either automatically or manually.
The controller’s innovative programmable platform gives manufacturers the freedom to personalise the graphic skin and programmes and add new languages. All they have to do is compile an ODS file and upload it using a flash drive to the USB port on the user interface.
Users can interact remotely with their equipment, including starting/stopping working cycles, using the EPoCA® cloud platform with Wi-Fi or Ethernet connectivity (which also enables alternative or parallel control through MODBUS TCP). For more details, compare all the connectivity options in the Technical Data table and consult our website.
The controller has an open frame board and a remote user interface which consists of a 5-inch (M) or 7-inch (L) capacitive TFT touch-screen graphic display in glass which is installed horizontally either semi-recessed into the front or flush with the panel.
