ENGLISH
MPXPRO is the CAREL product for the complete and advanced management of stand-alone or multiplexed refrigeration units. MPXPRO includes a wide range of integrated microprocessor parametric
controllers, optional electronic boards, terminals, displays and accessories that ensure high flexibility and
extended functions for the management of showcases or cold rooms.
MPXPRO can independently manage the control and operation of a refrigeration unit, implement a vats
series of functions and emergency procedures to avoid critical situations, control stepper or PWM electronic expansion valves, synchronise a master-slave network with a maximum of 5 units, and connect to the
supervisor network for complete monitoring of the installation.
MPXPRO is only available in the “split” version for DIN rail assembly, with the user terminal separate from
the power unit. It can be configured using a remote terminal, remote control, supervisor and commissioning software on a PC directly connected to the user terminal.

*N.B.: The devices with 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10 output Vdc connected to input S7 cannot be powered directly
from the MPXPRO. They therefore require an appropriate external power supply.
**Important: The type of input connected to each probe in the same group can be configured by just one
parameter. Consequently, for group 1, for example, there is just one parameter that defines the type of input,
and that must therefore be the same for all the probes in the same group.
For group 2, despite there being just one parameter, mixed combinations are possible, excepting different types
of temperature probes on the two inputs.

3.3 Setting and editing the parameters
The following paragraphs explain Table 3.a: “Functions and associated buttons” and the other modes for
setting the MPXPRO.
3.3.1 Selecting the network unit (from master unit only)
If using a user terminal connected directly to the master unit, the “select network unit” function can be
used to choose the desired unit. After having identified the required setting (e.g. edit parameters, access
the alarm log,...), then:
• Scroll the list of slave units available pressing UP or DOWN.
• Press SET to select the desired unit.
• To return to the normal display press PRG.
The control will in any case return to the normal display after a timeout of around 1 minute.
NB: uM indicates the master unit, u1 indicates slave unit 1, u3o indicates unit 3 is offline.
This specific procedure can be managed from the master unit only, if the user terminal is connected to a
slave unit the procedure is limited to that slave only.
ENGLISH
3.3.2 Displaying the network unit status from the master (Virtual Console)
If using a user terminal connected directly to the master unit, the status of any slave unit can be displayed (as
if the terminal were connected to the selected unit). Procedure:
1. Access the “Display network unit status from master” function (see Table 3.b “Buttons and Functions”).
2. Scroll the list of units available by pressing UP or DOWN
3. Use SET to select the unit and display the status.
. The display shows the status of the selected unit, that is, the value shown on the display and the icons
refer to the selected unit in the sub-network.
5. To return to the normal display press PRG. The control in any case returns to the normal display after a
timeout of 1 min.
The terminal connected to the master unit only allows a
general overview of the entire local network.
3.3.3 Modifying the parameters
1. Access the desired configuration menu “Type C parameters” or “Type F parameters” (see Table 3.b
“Functions and associated buttons”)
2. If using a user terminal connected directly to the master unit, select the unit (see par. “3.3.1 Selecting
the network unit”).
3. Press UP or DOWN until reaching the desired parameter (the icon for the function will be displayed,
together with the parameter). Alternatively: Press PRG to display the menu of parameter categories.
Press UP or DOWN until reaching the desired category of parameters and press SET. The list of
parameters in the selected category is displayed, then press UP or DOWN until reaching the desired
parameter (the display shows the icon that represents the category the parameter belongs to, see
Table 3.c).
. Once having reached the desired parameter, press SET
5. Increase or decrease the value of the parameter using UP or DOWN
6. Press SET to temporarily save the new value and return to the display of the list of parameters to
modify other values.
7. If the parameter has sub-parameters, after having selected the parameter as in point 4, press SET again
to enter the sub-menu, use the UP or DOWN button to scroll between the sub-parameters, which can
be modified like a normal parameter. Press SET again to temporarily save the values and return to the
higher level menu.
8. Once all the modifications have been made, to permanently save the new values assigned to the
parameters, press PRG for 5 seconds. To ignore the modifications, wait 60 seconds without pressing
any button (TIMEOUT).

All the parameters can be uploaded from a master unit to the slave units in the sub-network. This procedure can be used instead of the programming key, with the advantage of being able to update all the
slave boards in the sub-network at the same time (rather than having to do it individually for each board
with the programming key). Procedure:
1. Access the “Copy parameters from master to slave” menu (see Table “3.b Functions and associated
buttons”)
2. Scroll the list of units available using UP or DOWN
3. Press SET to select the desired unit. Selecting ALL means all the slave units in the sub-network will be
programmed.

3.3.5 Alarm log
Below are the instructions for managing the alarms saved by MPXPRO:
1. Access the “Alarm log” menu (see Table “3.b Functions and associated buttons”)
2. If using a master unit, select the desired unit (par. “3.3.1 Selecting the network unit”).
3. Scroll the list of alarms by pressing UP and DOWN
. Select the desired alarm by pressing SET, showing: the alarm code, hours, minutes and duration of the
alarm, using the UP and DOWN buttons
5. To return to the list, press SET again
6. To exit the alarms menu, press PRG for 5 seconds, or alternatively wait 60 seconds without pressing
any button.
To delete the alarm log, press SET & UP & DOWN for 5 seconds (the display will show the alarms deleted

3.3.6 HACCP alarms
The most recent 6 HACCP alarms (HA/HF) can be displayed and managed inside the HACCP menu.
1. Access the “HACCP menu” (see Table “3.b Functions and associated buttons”)
2. If using a master unit, select the desired unit (par. “3.3.1 Selecting the network unit”).
3. Scroll the list of alarms by pressing UP and DOWN
. Press SET to select the desired alarm.
5. Using the UP or DOWN button, view the description of the selected alarm, that is: year, month, day,
hours, minutes and duration in minutes.
6. Press SET again to return to the previous list.
ENGLISH
In addition, the HACCP alarm menu allows the following operations:
• Delete an individual HACCP alarm by pressing SET & DOWN for 5 seconds when displaying the list
of alarms. This causes the HACCP to flash, the display shows the message rES and the monitoring of
HACCP alarms is reinitialised.
• Delete the entire memory of HACCP alarms, by pressing SET & UP & DOWN for 5 seconds. This procedure displays the message rES, deletes the entire memory of alarms and reinitialises the monitoring of the HACCP alarms.

MPXPRO features highly configurable inputs and outputs. CAREL in any case recommends the basic
configurationd on the default settings of the parameters. By following this suggestion, the controller can
independently manage the main functions in most applications, without having to significantly modify the
settings of the parameters. The suggested settings are shown on all the wiring diagrams.
• Initial configuration of the outputs
The default configuration envisages:
Relay 1: solenoid valve / compressor (not modifiable)
Relay 2: light (see basic parameter H7)
Relay 3: heaters defrost (not modifiable)
Relay 4: fans (see basic parameter H1)
Relay 5: alarm (see basic parameter H5)

• Sets of pre-configured parameters
To further assists the configuration phase, MPXPRO features two sets of pre-configured parameters that
represent the typical configurations of two specific applications:
• Cabinet 1: NT utility - normal temperature
• Cabinet 2: LT utility - low temperature
These pre-configurations are can be selected using the procedure for loading the default parameters, and
then selecting the desired set of parameters.
4.2 Start-up procedure
MPXPRO features a special procedure when first starting that ensures the controller operates in safe
conditions. This procedure is designed above all to help the installer when starting an installation in which
the devices have not been previously programmed and/or when replacing the controllers in existing
systems. In these cases, this procedure avoids problems of conflicts on the supervisor or in the master/
slave network and the return of liquid refrigerant to the compressors (very frequent situations when the
instruments have not been programmed correctly).
When first powered up, MPXPRO runs a procedure that freezes all the functions of the controller and
only allows the user terminal to be used to set the parameters that are considered critical for:
• correct communication of the controller with the supervisor;
• management of the electronic valve.
The scope of this procedure does not cover the complete programming of the instrument, but rather
the first start-up in safe conditions so as to avoid critical situations and be able to set all the remaining
parameters at a later stage on the user terminal or via the supervisor.
During this procedure, the device remains in standby and all the functions are deactivated, the controller
consequently does not implement any control functions or communicate with the supervisor. These
restrictions end only after having set all the required parameters.
NB: Based on the specific application, these parameters may
not be useful, for example, if the electronic expansion valve is
not used. In these cases, simply confirm the default values set
on the controller.
4.3 Device start-up parameters
When first starting the controller, the user terminal does not display the traditional menu, but rather
automatically enters a temporary configuration menu that only displays the parameters defined as critical
for the initial operation of the installation. By default, the following parameters are displayed:

4.4 Navigation
This menu can be navigated in the traditional manner, through the sub-sets of parameters. To exit
the menu press and hold the PRG button, after having set all the parameters displayed. In fact, each
individual parameter must be selected using the SET button, the value set correctly using UP or DOWN
and saved by pressing the SET button again. The configuration procedure is simplified by the icons
being shown on the display corresponding to each parameter that has not yet been set. Only when all the
parameters have been set, and consequently the icons corresponding to all the start-up parameters are
off, will it be possible to exit this procedure.
4.5 Exceptions
As already mentioned, this procedure is especially useful when starting and programming the installation
directly. Nonetheless, the list of parameters displayed can be changed and/or the procedure disabled by
programming the parameters via programming key or commissioning tool. For further information, see to
the documents on the commissioning tool..

MPXPRO, inside the refrigerated cabinet or the cold room, can use temperature probes to measure:
• the air outlet temperature (at the evaporator outlet);
• the defrost temperature (in contact with the evaporator);
• the air intake temperature (at the evaporator inlet).
The default configuration for the assignment of the probes (typical for CAREL controllers) is the following:
• S1 = Outlet probe (Sm);
• S2 = Defrost probe (Sd);
• S3 = Intake probe (Sr).
The default configuration also includes three standard CAREL NTC probes. Other types of probes can also
be connected, setting parameter /P1, if the product code allows.

The default values of parameters /FA, /Fb, /Fc identify a typical application that uses three temperature
probes to control the temperature inside the cabinet. There are cases however in which the features of
the applications require different settings.
Examples:
Control inside a cold room is normally performed using two temperature probes, specifically the intake
temperature is not used. In this case, the possible configuration may be:
• /FA=1: Outlet temperature measured by probe S1 (Sm=S1)
• /Fb=2: Defrost temperature measured by probe S2 (Sd=S2)
• /Fc=0: Intake temperature absent
Alternatively:
• /FA=1: Outlet temperature measured by probe S1 (Sm=S1)
• /Fb=3: Defrost temperature measured by probe S3 (Sd=S3)
• /Fc=0: Intake temperature absent

The activation of the alarm causes:
• the message IA to be shown on the display and the
icon to flash,
• the activation of the buzzer (to modify this function, see advanced parameter H),
• the activation of the alarm relays (if configured, see basic parameters H1-H5-H7),
• the deactivation of the compressor/solenoid output (to modify this function, see advanced parameter).
Note: the activation of the external alarm shuts down the fans only if these follow the status of the
compressor output, as set using basic parameter F2.
The shutdown of the compressor due to an external alarm ignores the compressor ON time (advanced
parameter c3).

Note:
• if the contact is open while a defrost is in progress, this is immediately stopped
flashes on the
display indicating the defrost call is active (this starts again when the contact closes).
• This function may be useful to prevent defrosts on units exposed to the public during the shop opening
hours, and to be able to perform special hot gas defrosts.
A4-A5-A10-A11-A12 = 4: Start defrost
no defrost call
defrost call
The closing of the digital contact starts the defrost, if enabled. If the controller is the master, the defrost
will be a network defrost, while if it is a slave, it will only be a local defrost.
Note:
• If the defrost is inhibited by another digital input configured as “enable defrost”, the defrost calls are
ignored;
• If the digital contact for the defrost call is connected in parallel to a series of MPXPRO,controllers, the
defrosts on the various showcases can be staggered (see advanced parameter d5).
A4-A5-A10-A11-A12 = 5: Door switch
This function is useful when MPXPRO is used to control check a cold room, and specifically to manage
the contact on the door.

Note:
• When resuming control, the compressor protection times are observed (advanced parameters, compressor)
• If the door remains open for a time greater than the value set for parameter d8, control is resumed in
any case. The light remains on, the value shown on the display flashes, the buzzer and the alarm relay
are activated, and the temperature alarms are enabled, with the related time.

the entire RS485 supervisor network.
• SLAVE: H0 indicates the address of the slave inside the LAN. In this case, the address of the device for
the supervisor is the sum of the serial address of the master and the number of the slave, according to
the formula:
Serial address = H0 master + H0 slave
N.B.: On the slaves, H0 can be set between 1 and 4

Indicates whether just one solenoid valve connected to the master has been installed in the master-slave
network, or there is a solenoid valve for each slave:
• r7 = 0 one solenoid valve for each unit (default);
• r7 = 1 one shared network solenoid valve.
The network solenoid valve is controlled in parallel between all controllers in the sub-network: if at least
one is called, this is opened, while it is closed only when all the units are at the set point or defrosting.
The network solenoid valve can also be closed in special cases when alarms LSH, LSA and MOP are
activated on any of the units in the sub-network, see P10 and PM5.
Important: Before activating a specific alarm, MPXPRO enters a special status that depends on the type
of alarm, attempting to restore operation by modulating the electronic valve. In these situations, the LSH,
LSA, MOP status of a unit and the simultaneous closing of the expansion valve (0 steps with hysteresis of
10 steps), also closed the local solenoid, while all controllers in the master-slave sub-network must be in
these conditions to close the network solenoid valve.

This is used to associate Day status and Night status with a specific auxiliary output, which must have
already been configured by parameters H1, H5, H7. Specifically:
• H8 = 0: Switching from Day status to Night status deactivates the auxiliary output configured as the
LIGHT (default), and vice-versa.
• H8 = 1: Switching from Day status to Night status deactivates the auxiliary output configured as AUX,

If no auxiliary output is configured, the change in status only changes the working set point and the control
probe, where set, as described previously.

This determines the controller operating cycle. It is summed to the value of St, set as above, to determine
the control status.
If the temperature measured by the control probe exceeds the sum of the set point (St) and the differential (rd) ==> control ON.
If the temperature measured is less than the set point (St) ==> control OFF
In the transitions within the band set by rd, the controller remains in the previous status.
Low values of rd mean:
• Precise control
• High switching frequency (control On/Off
High values of rd mean:
• Less precision
• Low switching frequency (control On/Off) in response to minimum deviations in the temperature.

he virtual probe is the control probe used by MPXPRO during standard operation. For the alternative
functions, see basic parameter r6 or in paragraph 6.2 “Control”, p. 41.
Parameter /4 is used to assign the virtual probe (Sv) to the value read by the outlet probe (Sm), the
intake probe (Sr) or a weighted average of the two values.
Depending on the value set for /4 (1 to 99), the reading of Sv may be closer to Sm or to Sr..

The control probe, in the most common applications, coincides with the virtual probe (Sv) set using parameter /4. It may be different in the event of night-time set point management or the double thermostat
function. With control ON, the compressor/solenoid output and the management of the electronic valve,
where featured, are activated.

5.2.3 Night-time set point management
MPXPRO can change the temperature set point at night (useful for energy saving). Night-time operation
can be activated by:
• curtain switch (curtain down), basic parameters A4-A5-A10-A11-A12
• night time bands, parameters tS1 to tS8, tE1 to tE8
Therefore, based on the settings of parameters r4 and r6 relating to night-time set point management,
control will be different during the day and at night, according to the table below.

Stn= St+r4
If r4 is negative, in night mode the control decreases the standard set point.
r4=0 (default): No variation in night mode.

5.3 Defrost
MPXPRO manages the most common defrost modes. This section describes the basic configuration,

The defrosts available can be divided by type and the way they end.
The combination of these variables determines the different types of defrost.
By end mode:
• By temperature: the defrosts end when the defrost probe reading exceeds the threshold set using basic
parameter dt1. If the evaporator does not reach the set threshold within the maximum period set for basic
parameter dP1, the defrost is terminated due to the maximum time being reached. Note: the display of
error message Ed1 for end defrost by maximum time depends on advanced parameter r3 (Ed2 if two
evaporators are managed, see “Advanced parameters – Defrost – Second evaporator”).
• By time: when there is no defrost probe, the defrosts can end after a maximum time, dP1. No end defrost
error messages due to maximum time are signalled.
• Heater by time with temperature control: heater defrost, end by time, the defrost output is only activated
when the temperature measured by the defrost probe is less than the end defrost temperature threshold
(basic parameter dt1). This function is useful for energy savings.

Safety parameter used to perform cyclical defrosts every “dI” hours, even without the Real Time Clock
(RTC). The action of dl is deactivated with the RTC settings, however is activated if the RTC is not working.
It is also useful if the LAN or RS485 serial network is disconnected.
At the end of each defrost, irrespective of the duration, the interval dI starts being counted. If this interval
reaches the value set for the parameter without a defrost being performed by other events (RTC, manually by button or supervisor, physical or virtual digital input), a defrost is started immediately. This count is
always active even if the controller is off (logical OFF). If set on a slave unit, it has effect only on this unit,
independently from the others, while if set on a master it has effect on all the sub-LANs connected.
dI=0 ==> safety disabled, only the programmed or forced defrosts are performed (see Fig 5.d).
Note: The time base of the interval can be changed using advanced parameter dC.

local defrost is called the temperature measured by the defrost probe (Sd) is greater than the threshold
dt1, the defrost is not started. If the call comes from the network, the defrost on that unit is considered
completed and subsequent dripping and post-dripping phases are started.

5.4 Fans
MPXPRO manages the activation and deactivation of the fans in relation to the operation of the system
(normal operation, defrost, dripping…), the evaporator temperature and the status (on/off) of the compressor. MPXPRO, compared to previous models, can also manage the operation of the fans in relation to

Based on the configuration, in particular if the fans are managed according to the temperature, the
following basic parameters need to be set:
• F1= fan start temperature
• Frd = differenziale ventilatori

If F0 = 0 the fans are not controlled based on the temperature.
If F0 = 1 the fans are controlled based on the virtual probe and the evaporator temperature, according to
the graph on the side. This status refers to the normal operation of the device, that is, when MPXPRO is
not in specific modes such as: defrost, dripping, post-dripping��. In fact:
• the status of the fans can be forced during defrost (see basic parameter F3)
• during the dripping and post-dripping phase (see advanced parameters dd and Fd) the fans are always
off.
Note: with ‘F0’=1, in normal control mode the fan temperature control uses the virtual probe Sv, even
control is performed on Sr in night-time operation.

temperature (Sv).
• F0 = 2: Absolute threshold for the evaporator temperature read by Sd.

be performed on the maximum value of the two probes available, to ensure that the fans are activated
when all the probes reach the required temperature.

5.5 Temperature alarms
The high and low temperature alarms are used to display possible anomalies due to changes in the
temperature inside the refrigeration unit. The activation of a temperature alarm involves:
• the activation of the buzzer (if enabled), see parameter H4
• a message shown on the display:
- HI high temperature alarm
- LO low temperature alarm
The temperature alarms have automatic reset, that is, the alarm is reset directly by the controller when the
temperature returns within the allowed range.
Note: If the Double Thermostat function is enabled, the
��������������������������������������������
messages HI2 and LO2 are also displayed.
The parameters corresponding to the temperature alarms are used to:
• assign the measurement probe
• set the high and low temperature differential
• set the temperature thresholds
• set the activation delay

6.1.3 Analogue inputs
MPXPRO features 7 configurable analogue/digital inputs (S1 to S7), up to 4 serial probes that can be set
directly from the supervisory system, and the possibility of sharing the pressure probe connected to the
master with all the units present in the master-slave LAN.
In particular, this paragraph explains all the settings required to modify the default configuration relating
to the types of probes connected, plus the other information needed for correct operation.
For further information on the types of probes and the
connections:

• Temperature probe configuration, p. 21
/P1…/P4 Select type of probes, groups 1 to 4 (S1 to S7; DI1 to DI4)
The following table summarises the types of probes compatible with MPXPRO and the related parameters. It can be seen how the various inputs are divided into uniform groups, in which each input has the
same features and can be configured by the same parameter.

Analogue inputs S4 to S7 can also be used as digital inputs. In this case, simply configure the input as an
NTC/PTC/Pt1000 temperature probe, and then suitably set parameters A4-A5-A10-A11-A12. In fact, groups
2, 3, 4 can be used in a mixed manner, that is, even if configured for NTC/PTC/PT1000 temperature
probes, one of the probes can be used in this mode, while a digital input can be connected to the other
input. In this case, the system can recognise the type of input connected. The only limitation is that the
use of one type of probe is set, the others cannot be used.
Example 1 selecting the type of probes:
/P2=0: S4/DI1 and S5/DI2 standard NTC temperature probes
S4/DI1 can be used as the evaporator outlet temperature probe (/Fd=4)
S5/DI2 can be used as the remote ON/OFF digital input (A5=6)

Serial probes S8 to S11 are virtual probes that are not connected directly to the controller, and that
receive the values directly from the supervisory system. This method can be used to share the value read
by generic probes installed in the system between various units in different sub-networks. This function
is especially useful for ensuing the regular operation of the unit in the event of probe malfunctions. The
type of probe is assigned by each individual bit, see diagram below.
• bit = 0 Temperature probe
• bit = 1 Generic probe
The difference between these configurations lies in the way that MPXPRO����������������������������������
interprets the value send by the
supervisor:
• bit = 0 Temperature probe: the value is read by the controller as a temperature probe and interpreted
according to the unit of measure (°C or °F) set for parameter /5. In this mode, the supervisory system
must send the value of the variable according to the setting of /5. The various recording, calculation or
display operations are performed by MPXPRO��������������������������������������������������
in accordance with the unit of measure specified.
• bit = 1 Generic probe: the value is read and treated as a generic probe. No conversion of the units is
allowed during the operations, and no unit of measure is defined.
Default: The default settings define all the serial probes as temperature probes.
The system interprets the value of the serial probes based on the bitwise configuration of parameter /P5.

6.1.5 Network pressure / saturated evaporation temperature probe
MPXPRO ccan share the pressure/saturated temperature probe on the master within a master-slave
network. This mode is automatic, no parameter needs to be set. If any of the slaves controls an electronic
valve, it requires a pressure probe. If this is available locally, that is, connected directly to the slave, this
probe has absolute priority and the device uses it to control the valve. If no probe is fitted or there is a
probe error, the slave automatically requests the pressure value from the master and uses that probe for
the control functions. Only when the pressure probe on the master also shows an error does the slave
activate the emergency function to bypass the probe with parameter P15.
Note:
• the local probe has priority over the network probe
• the calibration of the saturated temperature (Po5) is performed locally on each device
• the calibration of the probe (c1 to c7) is performed by the device that the probes are connected to

6.1.6 Probe and saturated evaporation temperature calibration
MPXPRO can adjust the values read by the probes and some of the internal variables. In particular, /c1 to
/c7 are used to increase or decrease the values read by the physical probes if configured as temperature
probes. Parameter Po5, on the other hand, corrects the value of the saturated evaporation temperature
calculated directly based on the evaporation pressure. The serial probes cannot be calibrated, while the
probes shared with the master are calibrated by the master.

These correct the reading made by probes S1 to S7 respectively (see the table to the side), so that MPXPRO�����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

The table to the side shows the association between parameter-calibrated probe (the virtual sensors S8
to S11 do not require calibration). Calibration is performed before checking if the value if out-of-range,
that is, MPXPRO������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������
first determines the values read by the probes, correcting them based on the calibration
parameters, then checks if these are outside of the range specified and where necessary generates a
probe error.

6.1.8Virtual digital input (configuration of the virtual digital input for activation of the
curtain switch
MPXPRO can propagate the status of a digital input across the master/slave sub-network. This input is called the virtual digital input. Its status may derive:
• from a digital input directly connected to the master
• from the supervisory system
On every controller in the sub-network, this input can be used to activate any function of a generic digital
input, including functions that are different from the others on the others instruments. The slave unit
is not concerned with the actual origin of the status received. The master unit determines the origin by
parameter A9. To configure the curtain switch, and consequently the changeover from day to night status
in the entire local network by propagation of the virtual digital input, the digital input that determines the
changeover can be connected to the master, setting the following parameters:
Unit
Parameter
Action
A9 = 1
Enable propagation of DI1
master
A8 = 7*
master
DI1 master = curtain switch
A8 = 7
slave
On the Slaves, virtual digital input = curtain switch
In this way, each slave changes from day status to night status or vice-versa whenever the status of digital
input DI1 on the master changes. To see the effect of this function, refer to the description of the function
of the digital inputs (basic parameters A4 to A12).
* DI1 has been selected to be propagated as the virtual digital input, while its function is configured by
parameter A8, as on the slave units.

This determines the function associated with the virtual digital input; the functions that can be associated
are exactly the same as for a normal digital input physically connected to the unit. On the master, configured to propagate the status of a physical digital input (A9≠0) as the virtual digital input, the setting of A8
has priority over any configuration set for parameters A4 to A12.

The virtual digital input is useful for controlling coordinated functions within the LAN, and saves on wiring
costs. If needed, different functions can be configured on the different slaves, meaning the change in
status of the contact on the master determines the activation of different functions on the various slaves.

6.2.3.1 Double Thermostat
Double Thermostat is a special function on MPXPRO��������������������������������������������������
that is used to control the temperature inside a
refrigeration unit using two separate thermostats, one associated with the outlet probe and the other with
the intake probe. This control technique is used to appropriately manage the day-night changeover, and
in particular the closing of the curtain at night, without requiring any external contact. The lowering of the
curtain in fact generally causes a decrease in the temperature inside the unit, and may cause problems if
the control method is not adapted.
The two thermostats each have their own specific set point (St for the outlet probe, St2 for the intake
probe) and corresponding differential (rd for Sm, rd2 for Sr.

6.2.3.2 Duty Setting
Duty Setting is a special function used to maintain control in emergency situations with errors in the temperature control probes. The controller, in fact, even with just one temperature control probe operating
(outlet or intake), attempts to adapt its operating characteristics to the special conditions (see parameter
ro). If neither of the two is available, the “Duty Setting” control starts. With this function, the controller
is activated at regular intervals, operating for a time equal to the value set for the duty setting parameter
(c4) and off for a fixed time of 15 minutes. This mode manages to temporarily extend service times.

6.2.3.3 Continuous cycle
IThe continuous cycle is a special function on MPXPRO that is used to keep the refrigeration cycle active
continuously for a settable duration, irrespective of the temperature inside the unit. This may be useful
when requiring a rapid decrease in the temperature, including below the set point.
The continuous cycle is activated by pressing the UP & DOWN buttons more than 5 seconds, or from the
supervisor.
B@ AL: Low temp. alarm threshold, p. 33
A@ AL2: Low temp. alarm threshold on intake probe Sr, p. 58
The continuous cycle cannot be activated if:
• the duration of the continuous cycle is set to 0 (cc=0);
• the control temperature is less than the low temperature threshold AL (AL2 in double thermostat);
• the device is OFF.
When the continuous cycle is running:
• the solenoid output and valve control are activated, and the
icon is shown on the display;
• the low temperature alarm AL (AL2 in double thermostat) is active;
Note: Opening the door (digital input) stops the cycle. When closing the door again, system resumes
from the previous status.
The continuous cycle remains in standby if:
• the compressor protection times are set (c1, c2, c3);
• the immediate or delayed alarm from external digital input delays the activation of the compressor;
• defrost, dripping, post-dripping are active;
• the door is open (in the same way as described previously).
The continuous cycle ends when:
• pressing the UP & DOWN buttons for more than 5 seconds;
• supervisor;
• the low temperature threshold is reached (AL or AL2 in double thermostat);
• end of the continuous cycle duration cc;
• controller switched off from the supervisor (logical OFF).

To manage the electronic expansion valve, two additional probes must be installed and suitably configured:
• Temperature probe for measuring the superheated gas temperature at the evaporator outlet.
• Pressure probe for the measurement of the pressure / saturated evaporation temperature at the evaporator outlet.
In addition, if the optional Stepper board is used (MX2OPSTP**), an external 230/24 Vac 20VA transformer is required and, optionally, a backup battery in the event of power failures. Recommended CAREL

Installation notes
MPXPRO is designed to manage one electronic expansion valve that controls the flow of refrigerant
inside an individual evaporator. Two evaporators in parallel cannot be managed with just one electronic
expansion valve.
• The NTC/PTC/PT1000 temperature probe must be installed near the evaporator outlet, according to the
standard installation methods (see the installation notes on the E2V instruction sheet). Suitable thermal
insulation is recommended. CAREL offers special types of probes designed to simplify installation in
contact with the refrigerant pipe:
NTC030HF01 for Retail use IP67, 3m, -50T90 °C, 10 pcs
NTC060HF01 for Retail use IP67, 3m, -50T90 °C, 10 pcs
• To measure the saturated evaporation temperature, different types of probes can be used; in particular,
the following can be configured (advanced parameter /FE:
0 to 5 V ratiometric pressure probe
NTC/PTC/PT1000 temperature probe
Active 4 to 20 mA pressure probes (powered externally)
CAREL recommends the use of the following ratiometric probes
SPKT0053R0
0 to 5Vdc, -1 to 4.2 bar, for LT circuits
SPKT0013R0
0 to 5Vdc, -1 to 9.3 bar, for MT circuits
NB: MPXPRO can measure the saturated evaporation temperature using a normal NTC/PTC/PT1000 temperature probe (see price list). This solution, even if economically convenient, requires careful installation
and in any case does not offer the same precision as a ratiometric probe. CAREL recommends the use of
ratiometric probes for reading the evaporation pressure, which is automatically converted to the saturated
temperature using the specific tables for the type of refrigerant used.
A@ /FE: Assign advanced probe functions, p. 37
A@ P3: EEV - PID superheat set point, p. 45
Description of operation
The values read by the probes described above are called:
• T SUCT =evaporator outlet temperature
• T SAT=saturated evaporation temperature converted from pressure.
These values are used to calculate the superheat:
SH = TSUCT - TSAT
MPXPRO manages the proportional opening of the electronic expansion valve, adjusting the flow of refrigerant in the evaporator, so as to maintain the superheat around the value set for advanced parameter P3
(superheat set point).
The opening of the valve is controlled simultaneously yet independently from normal temperature
control. When there is a refrigeration call (the compressor / solenoid valve relay is activated), control of
the electronic valve is also activated and then managed independently. If the superheat value read by
the probes is greater than the set point, the valve is opened proportionally to the difference between the
values (see the figure on the side). The speed of variation and the percentage of opening depend on the
set parameters.
Valve opening
Sh
SH Vs Valve opening

“MPXPRO” +030220186 - rel. 1.0 - 22.05.2007
The opening is continuously modulated based on the superheat value, with PID control. Note: All the
references relating to control of the electronic valve are based on the use of a CAREL E2V electronic
expansion valve. The descriptions are then made considering the steps of the stepper motor used for this
type of valve, for example, the maximum number of opening steps is 480. All the functions are also then
described for PWM valves.
In particular, instead of the maximum opening expressed as the number of steps, the maximum ON/OFF
time of the PWM valve is considered (default 6 seconds). The absolute openings expressed as steps must
then be suitably converted by the user and referred to the maximum fixed period, expressed in seconds.

MPXPRO, with PID control, tends to maintain the actual superheat, calculated based on the probe readings, around the value set for this parameter. This is done by gradually varying the opening of the valve
based on the difference between the actual superheat and the set point.
Important: The set point value calculated depends on the quality of the installation, the position of the
probes and other factors. Consequently, depending on the installation the set point read may deviate
from the actual value. Set point values that are too low (2 to 4 K) may cause problems involving the
return of liquid refrigerant to the compressor rack.

This function is used to reduce or completely eliminate the typical temperature swings caused by sudden
activation/deactivation of the solenoid valve. The function is activated based on the refrigeration unit
control temperature and affects the cooling capacity of the electronic valve. In particular, the function is
activated when the control temperature falls below half of the differential rd. In this band, the superheat
set point P3 is increased by the parameter OSH. The effect of this action is the gradual advanced closing
of the electronic valve, which makes the decrease in temperature inside of the refrigeration unit slower
and more stable. In this way, the actual temperature of the cabinet can be kept very stable and near the
set point, without ever having to close the solenoid valve, but rather by simply controlling the flow of
refrigerant.

In the event of a pressure/saturated evaporation temperature probe error, this represents the constant

continue, even if not in perfect conditions, in emergency situations.
6.3.4 Control
The opening of the electronic valve is controlled based on the difference between the superheat set point
and the actual superheat calculated by the probes.
The speed of variation, the reactivity and the ability to reach the set point depend on three parameters.
Kp = proportional gain
- parameter P4
Ti = integration time
- parameter P5
Td = differential time
- parameter P6
The ideal values to be set vary depending on the applications and the utilities managed, nonetheless
default values are proposed that allow good control in the majority of cases. For further details, see classic

or closing whenever the superheat increases or decreases respectively. It also acts on the other control

6.3.5 Safety functions and alarms
• LSH – Low superheat
To prevent too low superheat values that may cause the return of liquid to the compressor or system
instability (swings), a low superheat threshold can be defined, below which a special protection function
is activated. When the superheat falls below the threshold, the system immediately enters low superheat
status and activates a control action, in addition to normal control, with the aim of closing the electronic
valve more quickly. In practice, the intensity of the system “reaction” is increased. If the device remains
in low superheat status for a certain period, a low superheat alarm is activated, with the display showing
the message ‘LSH’. The low superheat signal features automatic reset, when the condition is no longer
present or the controller is switched off (standby).
When low superheat status is activated, the local solenoid valve can be forced closed (parameter P10).

This is the time that MPXPRO remains in low superheat status for before activating the corresponding

The low superheat alarm features automatic reset, that is, it is automatically reset if the alarm condition is
no longer present.

This allows the forced closing of the local or network solenoid valve, based on the configuration of
the system (see parameter r7) if the low superheat alarm LSH or low evaporation temperature LSA is
activated. Forced closing is completed when the alarm is automatically reset, that is, when the superheat
returns above the threshold.

• MOP – Maximum evaporation pressure
When starting or restarting an installation, the compressors may not be able to satisfy the simultaneous
refrigeration requirements of all the refrigeration utilities in the installation. This may cause an excessive
increase in the evaporation pressure and consequently the corresponding saturated temperature. When
the evaporation pressure, expressed in degrees (saturated), rises above the threshold, after a certain settable time the system enters MOP protection status: PID superheat control is stopped and the controller
starts gradually closing the valve with an integration action to return the evaporation pressure below the
threshold. The protection function has been designed to allow a gradual return to normal operating conditions, that is, when the critical conditions have ended, the controller temporarily operates with a higher
superheat set point until the function is automatically reset.
Important: if this action causes the complete closing of the electronic valve, the solenoid valve is also
closed, even if this is a network solenoid valve, when enabled.
The alarm signal with the message ‘MOP’ on the display is delayed from the activation of the protection
function and is automatically reset as soon as the saturated temperature falls below the threshold.

LSA – Low evaporation temperature alarm
The low evaporation temperature alarm prevents the return of liquid refrigerant to the compressors.
When the evaporation temperature falls below the threshold, the alarm is activated after the set delay,
closing the electronic valve and the local and/or shared solenoid valve (if configured). The alarm is reset
when the evaporation temperature exceeds the set threshold plus the hysteresis. Reset is automatic for
a maximum of three times in a two hour period. Upon the fourth activation in such period, the alarm is
saved and requires manual reset from the user terminal or supervisor.

• LOP – Minimum evaporation pressure
Function useful above all for stand-alone refrigeration units, used to prevent the evaporation pressure
from remaining excessively low for too long. When the evaporation pressure, expressed in degrees
(saturated), falls below the threshold, the LOP protection is activated, which adds an integration action
to normal PID control, specifically devised to be more reactive as regards the opening of the valve. The
PID control remains active, as the superheat must continue to be monitored as to avoid flooding the
compressors.
The LOP alarm is delayed from the activation of the protection function, both are reset automatically
when the pressure value, in degrees (saturated), exceeds the threshold.

All the comments made for the stepper valve can thus be applied to the PWM valve, considering these
differences.
6.3.8 Power failure
The electronic valve requires a power supply to be able to open or close. In the event of power failures,
it remains in the current position. Consequently a solenoid valve is required, upstream of each individual
evaporator or master-slave network, to close the circuit and ensure the safety of the installation in the
event of mains power failures. For further information, see the instruction sheet on the electronic valve
(code +050000340). Alternatively, a backup battery can be installed that provides power for enough
time to close the valve. When next restarted, the system is automatically rebooted and resumes normal
control.
6.4 Compressor
This section describe the advanced settings that are useful if MPXPRO is used in non-centralised systems,

MPXPRO is used to manage separate defrosts on two evaporators in parallel.
This specific configuration is only allowed if an electronic expansion valve is not used, and therefore
control is performed on the two thermostatic valves or directly on the solenoid valve. With this function
enabled, the defrosts on the two evaporators can be performed independently, with different end defrost
thresholds and maximum durations. Naturally, two separate auxiliary outputs must be used (see basic parameters H1-H5-H7) and a temperature probe must be installed on the second evaporator (see advanced parameter /FF).

6.5.4 Special functions
As well as the normal defrost functions, MPXPRO features of a series of special functions used in situations in which specific types defrost of required. These functions are:
1. “Skip defrost”: function used to avoid unnecessary defrosts
2. “Running time”: automatic start defrost call based on current operation
3. “Sequential stops”: defrost performed by sequential stops in control
. “Power defrost”: More effective defrosts
• Skip Defrost
The Skip Defrost function is used to avoid unnecessary defrosts. It can be used for defrosts that end
by temperature, and monitors the duration of the previous defrost, identified by the time taken by the
refrigeration unit to reach the end defrost threshold, establishing whether or not the next defrosts are
necessary. The decisive duration is determined by parameter dn, which expresses the duration as a
percentage (of the maximum duration ‘dP1’ and ‘dP2’) below which the next defrosts are skipped. This
function observes the following rules:
• If the duration of the current defrost is less than ‘dn’, the next defrost is skipped;
• If when the next defrost is performed, the duration is still less than dn, then two consecutive defrosts
are skipped;
• This procedure is repeated until reaching a maximum of three defrosts, the fourth is always performed;
• On power-up, the control always performs the first 7 defrosts.
Below is an example of the sequence.

• Sequential stops
Sequential stop mode is especially useful for high-normal temperature refrigeration units, and is based on
the intelligent stopping of control to allow the evaporator to defrost naturally by the flow of ambient air
only, without activating the defrost output and consequently the defrost heaters.
When control stops, the operation of the fans depends on the setting of parameter F3.
If the function is enabled (parameter dS1≠0), two counters are activated.

The purpose of this new function is stop control and allow natural defrosts only when necessary. The old
procedure, in fact, which only counted the control operating time, was in some cases inefficient due to

Power defrost is a special function on the MPXPRO that increases the end defrost threshold dt1 (dt2 for
the second evaporator) and/or the maximum defrost duration dP1 (dP2 for the second evaporator). These increases allow longer and more effective defrosts. Power defrosts are performed upon each defrost
call in night status or when suitably configured by the RTC parameters (td1 to td8), to allow the user to
choose the most suitable conditions for this special procedure. Power Defrost is enabled when at least
one of the set increases, ddt or ddP, is other than zero.

Example. ddP= 0: increased duration not active in Power defrost
Example 2. If ddt>0 and ddP>0, then Power Defrost mode is enabled for both temperature and duration.
In this mode, any defrost calls when the controller is in night status or due to the RTC settings (td1 to td8)
with attribute P=1 modify the default settings.
The end defrost threshold temperature becomes
dt1P = dt1 + ddt
The maximum duration of defrost becomes
dP1P = dP1 + ddP
This effect is naturally extended to the second evaporator (dt2 and dP2).

6.6.2 Speed modulation
MPXPRO can manage a maximum of 3 analogue outputs (this depends on the code of the board used):
− 1 0 to 10 Vdc output on the optional boards
− 2 PWM outputs (12V) on the main board
The modulation of the evaporator fan speed is one of the functions of these outputs and, in particular,
based on the standard factory configuration, modulation is managed using the 0 to 10 Vdc analogue
output on some optional boards. This unit configuration can only be changed using the commissioning
tool or programming key. In this mode, modulation can also be managed using the open collector/PWM
outputs. The modulation management algorithm is independent of the output used.

6.8 HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point)
HACCP allows control of the operating temperature, recording any anomalies due to power failures or an
increase in the temperature due to other causes (breakages, extreme operating conditions, user errors,
etc.). Two types of HACCP event are managed:
6.8.2 Type HA HACCP alarms (high temperature during normal operation)
6.8.3 Type HF HACCP alarms (high temperature after a power failure)
When a HA or HF event occurs, the following data are saved:
• hour, minutes and day of the month when the alarm was activated;
• type of alarm;
When an alarm is recorded, the HACCP LED flashes, the display shows the alarm code, the alarm is saved
and the alarm relays and buzzer (if featured) are activated. The latter can be reset by pressing the PRG
button. If HACCP is enabled (Htd > 0 and the HACCP LED is on).

6.8.2 Type HA HACCP alarms
The HA alarm is generated when during normal operation the temperature read by the probe set for
parameter AA exceeds the high temperature threshold AH for a time Ad + Htd.
Therefore, compared to the normal high temperature alarm already signalled by the control, the type HA
HACCP alarm is delayed by a further specific time Htd for HACCP monitoring. This is shown in the figure
below.

7. programmING KEYS AND commissioning TOOL
The programming key codes IROPZKEY00/A0 can be used to copy the complete set of parameters
(values, visibility, possibility to upload) from and to an MPXPRO controllers.
The commissioning tool, on the other hand, is software used to program, manage and monitor the
complete status of the MPXPRO series controllers. This software is especially useful when first starting the
instrument, by connecting the controller user terminal directly to a PC.
The programming keys IROPZKEY00/A0 (Fig. 7a and 7b) are used to copy the complete set of MPXPRO
parameters. The keys must be connected to the connector (4 pin AMP) fitted on the compatible
controllers (without powering the controller), and can manage up to 2 different sets of parameters on
the instrument. The two dipswitches provided (accessible on removing the battery cover) can be set to
perform the following functions:
• Load the parameters for a controller onto the key (see Fig. UPLOAD ): the key acquires all the parameters from the controller.
• Copy from the key to a controller (see Fig DOWNLOAD): the key sends the operating parameters to the
connected controller.
• Extended copy from the key to a controller (see Fig EXTENDED DOWNLOAD): the key sends all the
parameters to the connected controller (both the operating and the unit parameters).
Warning: the parameters can only be copied between instruments with the same code, while the
UPLOAD operation can always be performed.
The UPLOAD and/or DOWNLOAD and DOWNLOAD EXTENDED functions are performed as follows:
1. open the rear cover on the key and set the 2 dipswitches according to the desired operation (see
Figure 7.c, 7.d, 7.e, UPLOAD, DOWNLOAD, EXTENDED DOWNLOAD);
2. close the cover and insert the key in the connector on the controller;
3. press the button and check the LED: red for a few seconds, then green, indicates that the operation
was completed correctly. Other signals or the flashing of the LED indicates that problems have occurred: refer to the corresponding table;
. at the end of the operation, release the button, after a few seconds the LED goes OFF;
5. remove the key from the controller.

The key can be programmed not only directly from the MPXPRO controller, but also directly from the PC,
using the special converter and the commissioning tool software.
Using this special connection, the PC can completely program the key. In particular, the following functions are possible:
• set the values of the parameters (both unit and operating parameters),
• set the visibility of the parameters,
• set the parameter upload attributes,
• write and read the parameters from/to a file,
• check the parameters.

7.2 Commissioning
EXTENDED DOWNLOAD
MPXPRO can communicate directly with a PC using the “commissioning” port. This connection can be
used to program and check the operation of an MPXPRO controller from the PC when installing and first
starting the system. The commissioning connection can be used to:
• Set the values, visibility and download attributes of all the parameters, including the unit parameters
• Completely program a key
• During start-up, monitor and manually control all the inputs/outputs
• Update the firmware
A PC can access the commissioning connection via
• The special port available on some terminals/displays
• The RS485 supervisory network
The commissioning software can also be used to program the key. Further information on the operation
