Beacon II’s Smart Defrost and Smart Controller predicts frost accumulation and defrosts on an as-needed basis. According to the manufacturer, Smart Defrost and Smart Controller provide improved efficiency due to overall defrost reductions, better product integrity, extended compressor life, and a more consistent box temperature. The system not only saves energy by not energizing heaters during unnecessary defrosts, it also saves energy by not expending energy to bring room temperature back down after defrosting, the company says. Smart Defrost comes standard on all Smart Controller operating systems.
