Paragon Timers Keep Things Running on Time
Timers from Paragon are one of the most useful electronic additions to modern appliances and systems. These hard working and versatile devices can work with a variety of systems to ensure that currents and voltage change based on set parameters that may include temperature, time of day, or cycles.
Defrost Timers Protect Commercial Refrigeration Investments
Facilities that include commercial refrigeration can’t afford to put up with units that are too hot or too cold. Everything must be “just right” to keep their businesses running profitably. In many companies, precision refrigeration is at the heart of their operations. Temperatures affect everything from food safety to the integrity of medication.
Cold temperatures help food and medicine stay fresh longer. They also slow down the activity of bacteria, making provisions last longer. However, refrigerators can also deliver too much of a good thing. When timers are off, you may find that some items in your refrigerator are freezing up.
What are Defrost Timers?
In days gone by, businesses had to manually defrost refrigerators and freezers to keep them working properly. But today, few of us think about the refrigeration’s automatic defrost cycle, until it stops working. In modern refrigeration, timers automatically switch lights, machinery, and industrial processes on and off at specific times or time intervals. Also called industrial timers and time switches, they help reduce energy use by running equipment only when needed.
Paragon defrost timers are specially-designed for commercial freezers and refrigerators. Meanwhile, the Paragon defrost controls have an automatic defrost capability that can accommodate various types of systems including electric defrost heaters, hot gas, and compressor off cycle.
Defrost systems and cooling cycles are usually "time initiated." An internal timer will start the cycle on a set interval regardless of the actual conditions inside the equipment. If your timer is working properly, it will only activate when the unit’s compressor is running, a design that's intended to save energy.
What are Universal Multi-Voltage Electromechanical 24 Hour Timer Controls?
All kinds of appliances and machines need to maintain a temperature, whether that be cool or warm. Others need to switch off or on based on timing and other parameters. That’s why Paragon also offers the Tork TU40 Universal Multi-Voltage Electromechanical 24 Hour Timer Control.
This multi-purpose Timer Control is designed to manage voltage input to prevent overheating. It can also accommodate automatic time-on/time-off programming. This timer is the perfect safety addition to pumps, motors and fans. It can also help program signs and lighting, and control heating and air conditioning systems.
