Vending machines typically run 24 hours a day, whether anyone is likely to use the machine or not. By powering down the machine when it is not needed, energy consumption can be significantly reduced. The VendingMiser uses a Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) to power down a refrigerated vending machine when no one has been within 25 feet of the machine for 15 minutes. Then it monitors the room s temperature and automatically re-powers the cooling system at one to three-hour intervals, dynamically adjusted based on the ambient temperature to ensure that the product stays cold.
To reduce wear and tear on the machine, VendingMiser s microcontroller will never power down the machine while the compressor is running, eliminating compressor short-cycling. In addition, when the machine is powered up, the cooling cycle is allowed to finish before again powering down.
VendingMiser is a simple external plug-and-play product, being able to be installed on the wall with hand tools. Included with the VendingMiser with Sensor is 1 VendingMiser, 1 Wall Mounting Plate, and 1 PIR Sensor with Mounting Bracket.
To control multiple machines (up to four), a VendingMiser may be purchased without the PIR Sensor, but then use its 10 foot repeater cable to allow it to be controlled from the PIR sensor of the primary VendingMiser.
