    Seems to me the Temp Diff from kick on to kick off would increase too much making huge swings... wouldnt that be just as bad ?

    I hadn't heard of that brand, but this one has been around for a few years.

    I'd have to vote for "Snake Oil"...considering the vast majority of self-contained reach-ins use a constant cut-in, coil sensing temperature control, it goes without saying that these little gems wouldn't work very well.

    Interesting idea,reminds me of a wine cooler control which was a probe in a bottle of fluid which sensed fluid temp. and cycled unit through a logic board which also inputted room temp. and humidity.Very limited/specific application but quite effective.

    I read until I hit the phrase "thermal inertia"

    Then something shorted out in my brain and I decided that brain cells would commit mass suicide if I read any further.

    Why not just stick the sensing bulb in a carrot. When the carrot gets above 40 the unit kicks on. When the carrot is at 33 it cuts out

    Because the carrot would have to be placed on a stick in the discharge air and the horsepower will continually try to catch the carrot but never quite get there and run on and on and on.....

    Why not just stick the probe in THE BUTT OF ENDOCUBE's CEO to get a true temperature reading.

    Seen similar sensors used to monitor/mimic product temp. They were used for alarms only, not to control the equipment. Same with the glycerol filled bottles in lab units. Usually for the recording equipment. One problem with using them to control food equipment is the health department. If they see air temps above 41 degrees they will tell you to toss the food.

    Just had this product, introduced onto another forum for frosties!
    So the engineers out there ask for a bit of engineering proof of the principles on what they claim.
    best reply from those flogging the ecocube, is "Trust me, it just works"
    SNAKE OIL with some added live Dodo droppings.
