Heat sensors automatically reduce energy consumption by reducing fan speeds which decreases electrical, heating and cooling loads.
Generates more electrical, heating and cooling savings by reducing airflow up to 50% or more during idle cooking periods
Capture-tank-mounted temperature sensor responds up to five times faster than duct-mounted temperature sensors
All-around cost-saver when upfront costs, maintenance and ongoing payback are calculated
Controls the supply air unit by sensing static pressure in the space, independent of the exhaust fan speed, to ensure proper room pressurization at all times. Proportional tracking is also available.
Decreasing fan speeds reduces kitchen ventilation system volume to improve customer and employee comfort
Less wear and tear on fan motors, belts and pulleys
International Mechanical Code (IMC) Compliant; meets code requirements to automatically start fans when cooking operations occur
Keypad used to control fans, lights, manual override conditions and to identify system events
Option to program a single-button increase of fan speed to 100% for a preset period of time
Achieves energy savings required by multiple energy and green building standards, including ASHRAE 90.1, ASHRAE 189.1, IECC 2015 and California Title 24
