Designed for walk-in coolers, freezers, and refrigerated warehouses, the KE2 Evaporator Efficiency controller (KE2 Evap) is unique not only for its approach to energy-saving defrost control, but also the benefit it provides in reducing or eliminating ice buildup in freezers, claimed the company. According to the manufacturer, the ice, which is typically a result of excessive defrosts and moisture being pulled from food, has been eliminated completely in most cases, while maintaining even tighter temperature control than before the controller was installed. The controller accomplishes this by only defrosting when needed, and by controlling the defrost heater temperature, which stops unnecessary heat being poured into the space. The controller can send alarm alerts/text messages directly to a phone or PC, providing immediate notification of a system issue. With the controller, the system can be managed remotely using a smartphone, Android tablet, or PC. And the controller can be used as a troubleshooting tool by accessing the current system performance screen, or by checking the last five days of performance data. It has the ability to log up to 30 days of data in 10-minute intervals. The logging covers 15 parameters including all temperature, pressure, digital inputs, and alarms.
