We have studied adiabatic temperature change ΔTad in a Ni50Mn36Co1Sn13 metamagnetic shape memory alloy. An irreversible character of ΔTad has been observed in the vicinity of the reverse martensitic transformation. In this region, cyclic application of the magnetic field converts comparatively large inverse magnetocaloric effect (MCE) with ΔTadmax=-0.8 K to a weaker conventional MCE (ΔTadmax=0.3 K). The crossover of ΔTad has been attributed to the irreversible character of the magnetic field-induced transformation and the closeness of the martensitic transformation and Curie temperature of the austenitic phase TCA.
