Störk-Tronic's ST-Box is a new generation of split solutions for the heating and refrigeration sector. The control system output unit (the ST-Box) is separate from the operating unit, which generates a many benefits for the user. See for yourself!
The modular construction provides much flexibility in the selection of different operating units, design, type of assembly as well as suitable set-up of the control system. Standard CAT5 plugs by WAGO are used to connect the units. The simple colour coding of the cables (blue for controller networks and red for the connection of control units and satellite displays) makes commissioning easy. The ST-Boxes are available in various versions depending on the size of your application. These differ in terms of inputs and outputs, functional scope and display unit. Detailed information about the differences below.
The ST-Box family has grown steadily over the past three decades. The various types differ in their front housing format, in their height (normal or flat version), in the number of inputs and outputs and in the display unit. Depending on type, there is the option for OLED or 7-segment display. With the OLED versions, you can choose between our four standard OLED colours: white, yellow, green and turquoise.
The controller can be supplied with 90-250V AC and has three output relays, which can be programmed to control a compressor, an evaporator fan, lighting or other necessary outputs. There is also a TRIAC output and an output for DC fans.
Splitting the refrigeration system has been established widely for refrigeration technology. With this configuration, the outside unit (refrigeration unit) and the inside unit (evaporator-fan module) are controlled by separate control units. Especially for inside units, the use of split version controllers generates many possibilities for function and design.
This means that for many refrigeration counters, the ST-Box is built directly into the counter itself. The simple connection of the ST-Box with CAT5 plugs now allows - if required - a personal operating unit in the visual field of the counter staff. At the same time, a satellite display can be fitted in the counter for the customer’s information. Overall, the user has a great freedom of design. For operating and display units all other elaborate cabling becomes redundant, since only the ST-Box includes all probes and other ports and is connected to the mains. This creates visually appealing solutions which are easy to implement.
If the ST-Box is also networked with the Commander , the counter operator can also use the advantages of remote maintenance and remote control.
