The WINE-STAT II Controller is a low-cost, but effective solution for providing all-important constant wine or beer storage temperature. The WINE-STAT II takes over control of your wine fridge (whether it be a refrigerator, freezer, air conditioner or your commercial wine cooler unit). You place the WINE-STAT II in a location within a few feet (or on top) of your wine fridge.
The WINE-STAT II has a permanently-attached bottle probe simulator temperature sensor with a thin cable which is about 8′ long. You place the unique bottle probe simulator sensor inside the fridge with your wine, then close the door on the cable. You do not need to drill any holes in the wall of your refrigerator. The WINE-STAT II will turn your wine fridge on and off as needed to maintain the wine or beer storage temperature you have selected within 1° F.
Using a stand-alone freezer is not recommended unless you order the “Freezer Option” freeze protection feature with your WINE-STAT II. User accepts the (very slight) risk of accidental freezing in the event of a malfunction.
Convenient push buttons on the front of the WINE-STAT II allow you to set the desired temperature that you wish to keep your wine. After you set it, a continuous display of the actual wine temperature appears on the front panel display of the WINE-STAT II. You will always have the confidence at a glance that your valuable wine is maintained at the ideal temperature you have selected.
