Frequently Asked Questions
A: Anti-sweat heater controls sense the relative humidity of air outside of the display case and reduce or turn off the glass door (if applicable) and frame anti-sweat heaters on refrigerated display cases during periods of low humidity.
A: Vending equipment controls must be installed on vending machines that store non-perishable bottled and canned beverages at a refrigerated temperature. Vending machine controls need to include a passive infrared occupancy sensor to turn off fluorescent lights and set back the temperature (control a compressor) when the surrounding area is unoccupied for a preset length of time.
Controls should maintain temperature through periodic power-ups and provide compressor protection.
