Central Controlling System, Monitoring of Cooling Units

Cooling units (except for those from retail suppliers) can be connected to the UZH central controlling system. The necessary modifications are carried out for a fee by a UZH technician. Connection to the system ensures 24-hour temperature monitoring even during power cuts. The minimum and maximum temperatures for triggering the alarm can be adjusted according to your requirements.


Fee for unit modification: CHF 500 per unit, plus fee for connection of the modified unit to the central controlling system: CHF 1,000 to 5,000 depending on location.
