The WINE-STAT II Universal model plugs into your wall socket, and then your cooler plugs into the receptacle on the back of the WINE-STAT II. In this manner, the WINE-STAT II takes over control of your cooler (whether it be a refrigerator, freezer, air conditioner or your commercial cooler unit). You place the WINE-STAT II in a location within a few feet (or on top) of your cooler. The WINE-STAT II includes a temperature sensor with a thin cable which is 8′ long (See below for optional Bottle Probe sensor for long-term product storage and aging). You place the sensor inside the cooler with your product, then close the door on the cable. You do not need to drill any holes in the wall of your cooler. The WINE-STAT II will turn your cooler on and off as needed to maintain the temperature you have selected within 1° F.
Convenient push buttons on the front of the WINE-STAT II allow you to set the desired temperature that you wish to keep your product. After you set it, a continuous display of the actual product temperature appears on the front panel display of the WINE-STAT II. You will always have the confidence at a glance that your valuable product is maintained at the ideal temperature you have selected.
Just follow these simple installation steps:
Step 1. Plug the WINE-STAT II into your wall socket
Step 2. Plug your cooler into the WINE-STAT II rear socket
Step 3. Place the WINE-STAT II’s temperature sensor amidst your product collection inside the cooler
