The leading force in IoT refrigeration

Since Wellington invented the connected electronic programmable motor controller in 2016, over one million commercial refrigerators, coolers, and freezers are now reporting their data for some of the world’s biggest brands.

The Connect™ SCS is an IoT refrigeration temperature controller designed to be the brains of any new or retrofitted connected cooler or freezer. Connect SCS forms part of the Connect ecosystem, our suite of hardware, desktop and mobile cooler fleet management software. Customers use the insights from their connected coolers to manage the efficiency and profitability of their cooler fleets, with outcomes including:

  • precise location asset tracking;
  • predictive and preventative service and maintenance;
  • sales insights, including cooler sizing for the location, product temperature and restocking frequency;
  • HACCP (food safety) data logging;
  • customer engagement marketing for in-store consumer marketing and interaction at the point of decision, through Beacons and Q-Tags.

A truly smart controller

The Connect SCS smart controller is available in different formats to suit your precise application. It can also be used as an unconnected electronic controller for the replacement of mechanical thermostats. Many OEMs fit the SCS on their production lines using our range of specialized programming cradles and software.


Precise asset tracking system

Connect SCS helps you understand where your equipment is and what it’s doing, so you can focus on generating more sales and reducing operating costs. You can use it to visualize your geographic footprint and identify gaps in your coverage, reduce your audit costs by having an accurate, up to date, geographic asset registry, reduce your equipment losses by receiving alerts when coolers drop out of sight, and even reduce your fleet size through better deployment.

Service and maintenance

Minimize unhappy consumers by quickly identifying and fixing cooler temperature issues and faults in real time. Connect SCS also keeps HACCP log data to reduce food safety liability and compliance issues. Connect SCS can optimize your fleet replacement and refurbishment schedule, and reduce your maintenance costs through preventive maintenance, better planning, reduced training and faster, and more effective callouts.
