The KE2 Temp + Defrost Controller represents a major advance in Commercial Refrigeration temperature & operation control. Never before has temperature control, automatic defrost & anti short cycling been combined into one digital controller.
We are excited about the introduction of the KE2 Temp + Defrost Controller to the Commercial Refrigeration market recently. This product offers many new features for the control of medium & low temperature refrigeration systems that had previously required separate components for individual functions.
In the past temperature control, defrost & anti short cycling could be achieved only by using one component for each function. A thermostat was needed for temperature control, a separate defrost clock for defrost & a relay for anti short cycling of compressor. Now the KE2 Temp + Defrost Controller can handle all three tasks on medium temperature Refrigeration Equipment (low temperature applications would still require a separate defrost circuit for evaporator fan & coil heater control). The old style temperature, defrost & anti short cycle controls were usually mechanical. All of these features (temperature control, defrost & anti short cycling) are digital & included within the new Ke2 control.
We know from in the field experience that digital controls offer far better precision & accuracy than comparable mechanical refrigeration controls. KE2 also offers a visual alert for high temperature, low temperature & sensor. The control also indicates when system is in defrost mode & also when system is recovering temperature from a defrost mode. This feature cuts down on false alarms & unnecessary service calls. Ke2 is dual voltage & can operate on either 120 or 208 – 240 volt power supply. We believe that this new product offers great features in one digital control. We will be using the KE2 Temp + Defrost on most refrigeration repair & installation jobs in the future due to it’s features & dependability.
