Master-Bilt, a refrigeration equipment provider, has updated its Master Controller system, making it easier to use for operators.
All controller functions can now be accessed and changed through four buttons on the interface which is mounted on the front of a walk-in evaporator coil.
Settings may also be updated remotely by any device with internet connection.
The company said the system is
easier to navigate than before but still maintains all its functionality when
it comes to increasing food safety, reducing energy and installation costs.
The Master Controller control board is factory installed inside the evaporator coil with an easy to use interface mounted on the outside.
In regards to food safety, the reverse cycle defrost function helps prevent food spoilage as it removes ice build-up in evaporator coils.
The company also adds that should there be an issue with the refrigeration system, operators will be alerted instantly through error codes and data provided via online Web2Walk-In software.
The upgrade is designed to be cost-effective too, as no wiring is required between evaporator coils and condensing units.
Master-Bilt reported that in some cases, the savings on wiring installation alone covers the cost of the Master Controller.
Not only can the model save money, but it has also been designed to save up to 27% more energy than all-mechanical systems.
Its reverse cycle technology reduces defrost energy usage by up to 80% over traditional electric heaters and saves an extra 2-4% with the fan cycle option, which saves electricity by cycling the evaporator fans during the compressor’s off cycle.
