​​​​​​​​Proto-Aire XP​​

Proto-Aire XP is the latest innovation in Protocol distributed systems.
This new product was designed specifically for small format stores. It is engineered for efficiency and performance, designed for convenience, and built to last.

Engineered for 
Efficiency and Performance.
Designed for Convenience. 
​Built to Last.​​

Proto-Aire XP is a parallel refrigeration system consisting of six pre-configured models with varying capacity.​
The units consist of 3 to 4 scroll compressors and 3 to 4 variable speed condenser fans for improved energy efficiency. The medium temp suction group is controlled by a lead variable capacity digital scroll and the low temp suction group consist of liquid injected scroll compressors, all controlled with patent pending control logic by Hussmann. This new design uses an electronic CDS valve to provide improved load-matching performance between the low and medium temp suction groups. Structural and piping enhancements are part of the
new design, resulting in improved access to internal components.​


​Efficiency and Performance.
Proto-Aire XP was designed specifically for the unique refrigeration needs of small format stores. The Hussmann, patent pending control logic algorithm quickly adjust to the large load shifts commonly associated with small format store applications. The result is a more efficient matching between compressor cycling and store load demands. A variable frequency drive (VFD)and variable speed fans come standard to further increase energy efficiency.
​​
Designed for Conv​enience.
Proto-Aire XP was designed with serviceability
in mind. The placement of service components
are located near the outer parameter of the unit
with easy-open access panels to make service as
convenient as possible. But we didn’t stop there.
Proto-Aire XP comes in six pre-configured units
to make product selection and ordering quick and
simple. The QR code facilitates easy access to
install and service documentation.​

Quality and Value.
Proto-Aire XP delivers exceptional value and quality for years of reliable refrigeration. The patent pending control logic algorithm and electronic CDS valve are synchronized to provide optimum load distribution between the low and medium temp suction groups. And the new piping design reduces potential system leak points by 7% compared to the original Proto-Aire design. It all adds up to ​quality ​and value that you can trust.​​
