Elstat and Heber

17th April 2015

Adding measurable value to the refrigeration market.

Elstat has been creating cutting-edge refrigeration technology for nearly two decades. In addition to designing and patenting the world’s first intelligent energy management system, Elstat’s technology is implemented in more than 4.5 million coolers in over 160 countries worldwide.

As a rapidly growing business, Elstat was looking to establish an ongoing partnership with a trusted electronic design and manufacturing firm. The need was two-fold; they required access to a wider range of electronic design expertise and a partner that could provide strategic support during a period of business growth.

Elstat commissioned Heber to develop a solution to sit within a refrigeration unit and wirelessly send accurate temperature measurements to an external receiver. The project included several challenges. Heber suggested bouncing a tightly focused wireless connection through the glass of the refrigeration unit to overcome the difficulty of connecting with the receiver through the steel enclosure. This solution also increased the product’s security as the transmitter broadcasts the signal a shorter distance, limiting the possibility of external interference. Working in a very tight timeframe, the Heber team were able to draw on the width and breadth of their experience and expertise to really add value to Elstat’s business.

Andy Main, Head of Design and Development at Elstat, comments: “When I think Heber, I think ‘excellence.’ It’s their attention to detail and deep thinking – that’s where the real engineering happens.” Les Ashton-Smith, Heber Managing Director adds: “I am immensely proud of the team at Heber and their ability not only to delight our customer, but to demonstrate a level of excellence in engineering delivery that shows how hard they work to really understand a customer’s challenges.”
