Insert the temperature probe into the cube and the savings begin immediately! It has been tested and approved by the National Safety Food Council, and is guaranteed to decrease the cost of your maintenance, repair and replacement of compressors as well as reduce monthly electric usage. The device comes in various sizes according to the length of the temperature probes in your coolers. The 4" Endocube is the safest bet because every sensor smaller than 4 inches will work within it, but it also costs the most, so it is important to know the sizes you need.
The Patented and NSF approved cubes work by simulating refrigerated food. Historically, sensors are used to monitor and/or control refrigeration by measuring the temperature of the circulating air. However, air temperature fluctuates dramatically, and is a poor indication of actual food temperature. Food Safety (temperature control) Regulations recommend the use of food simulants when monitoring temperatures, and the cubes follow these guidelines giving accurate food temperatures.
Need to prove to yourself that the Endocube really works, purchase one, have it metered independently, one week with it off and one week with it on. Focus on two specific areas, KWh used and starts and stops of your compressors. This way you see the energy savings as well as get an idea of the maintenance savings through less wear and tear from starts and stops. We've seen tests where customers have saved over 35% on KWh usage and 40% on starts and stops!
It's also imperative to make sure you use two comparative weeks that are either both heavy use weeks or low use weeks. Many times, someone will test a unit without the Endocube the week before a busy holiday week, and with it attached during the busy week afterward, or vice versa. This gives a biased result. Of course you would either see little change or even slightly more usage during the busy week, when the unit is getting far more use. You know your business best, so make sure you aren't doing your business a disservice by testing during times that aren't equally busy. It's probably a good idea to put a log book near the unit so employees can log usage during the entire test period.
If you don't see a difference after testing, we'll take back the Endocube, no questions asked. And, we'll give you a 10% Coupon off your next order of anything in our store. We believe in the Endocube that much. Read the information under the tab Tech Specs to see why.
Endo-Cube 1" to 4" Cold & Frozen Food Simulator Compressor Cycle Reducer Commercial Refrigeration Energy Saver Adheres to Food Safety (temperature control) Guidelines 1995 Fitted to the Temperature probe of the fridge/freezer Thermometer will display the actual food temperature If fitted to the temperature probe of a monitoring system such as BT Redcares ColdCall or UMPs logggit, the recorded temperature will be that of the food as per the Food Safety Guidelines. Enormous Energy Savings Fitted to the thermostat the cube significantly reduces the frequency of refrigeration cycles as the fridge/freezer will change its cycle from air-based to food-based, resulting in electricity savings of between 15-35% Less noise pollution Less maintenance and longer life expectancy of the equipment Food safety is not compromised You could see a very fast return on your investment Can also be used on vehicle cooling units to save on any fuel costs associated with powering them The possibilities for energy savings are limited only by the cooling units you own and operate Compare it to the Ecube and others The Endocube is the originally patented food simulation product Designed by the owners of UK based Universal Master Products If a company isn't associated with Universal Master Products then they're not selling the original, or they are selling the original and they aren't authorized to do so.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Endo-Cube This invention relates to a method and apparatus for controlling refrigeration apparatus. An example of the application of the invention is to a method and apparatus for controlling the operation of domestic and commercial food storage refrigeration apparatus including deep freeze apparatus. However, the invention also provides, as such, the apparatus which operates in accordance with the aforesaid method for controlling such refrigeration apparatus, and provides temperature sensing apparatus. Further aspects of the invention relate to the use of the method and apparatus for the control of apparatus for raising the temperature of food and the like, for example microwave cooking apparatus. Further aspects of the invention relate to a method and apparatus for conducting thermal tests and calibration in relation to refrigeration and heating apparatus. There is disclosed in WO 94/10546 (reference P51957WO) a method and apparatus applicable to temperature sensing in relation to refrigeration equipment in which provision is made for a means to enable visual inspection, of temperature sensing apparatus (for example a conventional bulb and meniscus column-type thermometer) which has been stored in a refrigerator and then removed for inspection, without the attendant inaccuracy of temperature measurement arising from immediate response of the thermometer to the raised air temperature outside the refrigerator or, if such inspection is effected without removal from the refrigerator, the effect of the ingress of external warm air into the refrigerator. For this purpose, the apparatus of the WO 546 specification provides for the thermometer to be entirely encased within a transparent capsule containing ethylene glycol. In this way the WO 546 apparatus seeks to offset the effect of sudden changes of air temperature on temperature sensing apparatus used in relation to refrigeration equipment. In a similar way, the disclosure in DE 30 32 684 A1 provides for the use of a thermal barrier material to surround the temperature sensor in a refrigerator in order that the effect of opening the door of the refrigerator will be cushioned. In the references cited against the WO 546 specification there are related disclosures concerning the use of thermal inertia and barrier systems for similar or related reasons. We have discovered that the technical approach adopted in these prior proposals to the sensing of temperatures in refrigeration apparatus and to the control of such apparatus, is technically subject to significant shortcomings in terms of seeking to alleviate the symptoms of the malaise (inaccurate temperature sensing) without looking to see what is the actual technical step needed for the purpose in terms of the real function of the temperature sensing system. Food Simulant Temperature Measuring Device This invention is a thermometric device to shadow the temperature of food stored within its vicinity by sensing the temperature of a food simulant which is itself a food product encapsulated in a recipient, without being affected by the changes of the ambient temperature. The invention is a generic product covering different applications involving storage of food and other commodities which must be kept within a specific temperature range. The invention relates to the method and apparatus applicable 1) to the remote sensing of a food simulant to indicate the temperature of food stored in cold rooms, refrigerated or heated containers and other storage spaces for reading, recordal or other purposes, 2) to regulate through the medium of a thermostat of the temperature of cold rooms, refrigerated or heated containers or other storage areas, 3) to indicate the temperature of food cooked in ovens particularly micro wave ovens. The invention will ensure that the products stored or cooked are at or within the degrees of temperature suggested or imposed by Health Authorities or other regulated bodies.
