CoolBot Walk-in Cooler
The CoolBot Walk-in Cooler is a large refrigeration unit with a standard air conditioner using a CoolBot controller to achieve low temperatures (0°C) to store fresh commodities.
The CoolBot Walk-in Cooler is a large storage room which has been transformed into a refrigeration room by equipment of CoolBot gadget and a standard air conditioner (AC). The CoolBot controller has been designed to trick the AC into operation at much lower temperature than indoor temperatures. The controller also tracks frost buildup on the coil and periodically stops the AC, allowing time for defrosting. The concept achieves low enough temperatures (0°C) allowing storage of perishable commodities.

What is the medium for cooling?
The CoolBot Walk-in Cooler is a well insulated room equipped with a CoolBot controller and a standard air conditioner (AC). The controller overrides the AC tricking it to give low temperature without ice forming on the AC coils, by automatically switching it (AC) on and off, allowing time for defrosting. The controller has control nobs with which one can set desired minimum temperature.
The size of the unit varies dependent on the user as shown below:

The product is certified by Safety Standards and the Appliance and Equipment Standards Program in the US.
This Report from NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) study confirms that the °CoolBot works well and does not stress out the air conditioner or push it into unacceptable cycle times. NYSERDA found that under certain parameters a °CoolBot-driven system can be up to 40% more efficient than a conventional refrigerator.
