DC Refrigerators & Freezers

Refrigerators & Freezers

 

Good quality, highly-efficient DC fridges and freezers. 

All run from 12 volt or 24 volt batteries, charged by solar panels or from the mains.

At the fridge factory 2015DC to DC has the advantage of running directly from a battery, thus eliminating inverter inefficiencies of 5% to 25%.

The electronics have over and under voltage protection, thermal protection and pressure protection (in case the unit is disconnected and then reconnected whilst running).

Because of its efficiency, it takes the seasonal changes in solar-power systems to their full advantage.    i.e. In the summer, when the days are longer and more solar power is available, the fridge may run longer because it is hotter.    In winter the reverse occurs, but their main attribute is that they perform just as well as 240 volt fridges, but only consume a fraction of the power.

 

Chest Freezers

  • These DC domestic freezers come complete with baskets for easy loading and unloading.
  • They are constructed from zinc – coated, painted steel cabinets, with increased foam thickness for greater energy efficiency.
  • Complete with an easy-to-use drain for defrosting, they can be factory set for operation as a fridge, a fridge to sub-zero, or as a deep freeze.
  • Used as a fridge, they have absolutely minimal power draw.
  • These freezers have been installed right across Australia, the Pacific Islands, PNG and throughout Asia.
  • They are reliable, and continue to use very low power consumption for all of their long lifetime of operation.

The freezers undergo continuous laboratory testing for improvements.  When I was visiting the factory, there were several models of the 300 litre models being side-by-side tested for performance, to determine the model that had the best characteristics.
