Master-Bilt’s award-winning Master Controller, featuring Web2Walk-In software, is now Apple iOS compatible making remote monitoring and adjustment of walk-ins accessible from any device with an internet connection including a PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet. The newest Master Controller will debut at the 2014 National Restaurant Show May 17-20 at Chicago's McCormick Place, booth #4257.
In addition to iOS compatibility, a new defrost function built into the Master Controller’s Web2Walk-In software monitors coil temperature and automatically turns on evaporator fans for a short time when the coil is warm to melt accumulated frost and ice from the fan guards. This function prevents ice formation from blocking the cold airflow, resulting in more efficient cooling and also lowers the risk of temperature fluctuations inside the walk-in caused by the constant opening and closing of walk-in doors. This new function may be accessed through the control panel located on the evaporator coil or through the Web2Walk-In set points screen on any computer, tablet or smart phone.
“The Master Controller is a result of Master-Bilt’s commitment to providing cost-effective, energy saving and performance enhancing refrigeration equipment,” says Bill Huffman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Master-Bilt.
Web2Walk-In provides constant access to data that can be used to improve refrigeration system performance and avoid service issues. The Web2Walk-In software loaded on each controller remotely monitors and programs all data and setpoints using any device with a wireless internet or cabled (cat 5) connection (internet connection not required for controller operation). Web2Walk-In can pinpoint walk-in performance and maintenance issues, eliminating the need to enter the walk-in or access rooftop equipment to monitor or adjust the refrigeration system.
The Master Controller with patented Reverse Cycle Defrost received a Kitchen Innovations Award in 2007 for its energy efficiency and innovative technology.
