Frezzer tempature going up warning unit.

I'm sure someone makes this, but I can't find one yet. Losing our entire Spring vegetables for Winters use really hurts. I am looking for 3 units 1 for each freezer that will all run on 120v using an APC battery back-up.

We get ice storms that can leave us without power for a week or longer. Accidents can happen & this is just what happened to us, a plug was removed to use a tool, & not plugged in again. This Frezzerwas the main large supply type & does not get oppened but perhaps once a week, so this time being unpluged that long ruined everything.

I must be asking for the wrong alarm on Google. Any help finding a place I can buy an alarm that will warn us if one of the the frezzers starts getting warmer, will be appreciated.

Thanks
Mike.

I'd look into a EA200 Winland Enviro Alert. This will give you the ability to monitor the freezer with a remote tempature probe. If you do not have a alarm to hook this to, you can use it stand alone and hook a siren to it through the relay contacts. So when the temp comes above freezing it goes off. Its digital and a heck of a lot more reliable then the old mechanical tempature alert switches that I have seen get stuck and not work when it counts.

You'd need one for each freezer though with this product.

EA200 is the part # for the control unit
SS-HIGH is the part # for the remote tempature probe, you'd have to put in the freezer.

If the freezers are in relatively close proximity to each other, winland also makes the E400 that can monitor up to 4 sensors from a single control.

The right parts.

Thank you both, now I have a good start. All 3 units are close enough to allow the use of the E-400.

Thanks for your help guys.

Mike.

Just making sure we are on the same page before I order the E-400 .

[PN# M-001-0080]

Monitor four zones with any combination of a remote temperature, humidity or water sensing probe. If temperatures and humidity deviate from the preset limits or water forms a bridge between the contacts on the WaterBugŪ sensor the designated relay for each zone will activate an alarm, dialer, transmitter, etc.

I read the spec's in english & in French for the E-400 so I will jusk ask just 1 more question in English

Can I monitor 3 frezzers & 1 Refrigerator & be warned if 1 or all go above their correct Tempature setting's?

Have not checked on the price yet but I'll bet it's not $29.99 LOL.

Mike

Yup, that's it in a nutshell. The control device is made to work with several different types of sensors, and you program it to the setpoints you desire for the inputs. I'm not sure what the built in annunciator is like, but you can easily connect it to something like a piezo buzzer, or even a siren. It's got a couple of sets of relay contacts.
