Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Polar Controller Unit?
Polar Controller is a unit that attaches to your existing cooling system and monitors up to 10 critical components to provide data to sophisticated software which monitors the cooling unit. Most people consider the unit a brain for refrigeration and cooling systems of all types.
Can Polar Controller attach to my HVAC, walk-in coolers and freezer?
Yes, Polar Controller can attach to most refrigeration and cooling systems.
Does Polar Controller repair or control my unit?
No, Polar Controller does not control your system in the case of refrigerators and standard cooling equipment, however, for multi-stage HVAC units, the answer is yes. The unit does control the cycling stages to reduce power consumption by as much as 30%.
How does it work on existing systems?
Once the Polar Controller system is attached to a unit and registered, it runs a base line to create a unique operational profile for each specific system. After a baseline is recorded then the system is monitored 24/7. In the event of failure, Polar Controller will have a log of the issue and will file a report. However, most of the time, Polar Controller will predict the failure before it happens and notify the client to take action.
How does it compare to temperature monitoring systems on the market?
Polar Controller is a 24/7 live monitored system that provides proactive predictive analysis monitoring up to 10 components on the system to give a complete picture of the refrigeration equipment. Temperature monitoring is a reactive technology that only notifies the client passively after a breech has occurred.
How does Polar Controller save me money?
Polar Controller insures your equipment is running at peak performance saving money on repairs, downtime, perishable losses and utility cost.
The Polar Controller multi-stage HVAC unit controls the cycling of the stages within the unit reducing cooling costs much as 30%.
Polar Controller protects your system from early system degradation.
What is my ROI?
The normal ROI to a complete system is 14-16 months for the average business.
Do you have a quantity discount?
Yes, Polar Controller offers packages for smaller applications plus an Enterprise Plan and Corporate Rate Plan for our larger clients.
What makes Polar Controller different than others on the market?
Polar Controller is the only proactive analytical system for refrigeration that is both retrofit and scalable.
