Introducing Kegco's new and improved RTC-2 Digital Thermostat Power Control! This device makes it possible to convert any freezer into a kegerator or fermentation chamber by overriding an appliance's thermostat, regulating the amount of energy getting to the appliance and allowing you precise control over the temperature settings and the amount of temperature fluctuation between cycles. This brand-new Kegco Digital Thermostat Power Control Unit has been specially designed to handle a higher amperage and features a setpoint range of -40 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, making it suitable for a wide variety of uses such as controlling the power to a freezer or a terrarium.

For easy installation, the Kegco RTC-2 utilizes pre-wired cords with a plug that installs into your electrical socket and a receptacle for you to plug your appliance into. The clear LCD display makes it easy to monitor set temperature, real temperature, and other control functions, and a temperature alarm can be set to alert you if the appliance is too far outside the operating range you have entered. This versatile thermostat control unit features both heating and cooling modes with adjustable setpoint and differential, and a waterproof remote temperature probe makes it possible to monitor the temperature inside the appliance while the display is mounted on the outside, allowing you to make adjustments without having to open and close the door of the appliance. For added convenience, adhesive tape is provided for mounting the display panel to the exterior of the appliance, and a suction cup on the sensor wire allows you to precisely place it inside the appliance and out of the way of its contents.

Warning WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including styrene, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.

Digital Thermostat Power Temperature Control Unit Reviews

Great Product
by:John (06-10-2019)
Eden Prairie, MN
Comments:The thermostat broke on my 1987 chest freezer. I tried to order a replacement thermostat but could not find one. Then decided that a digital replacement would be the best anyway. Found this Model KC RTC-2 temperature controller and immediately knew it was the way to go, so ordered it.

Hung the sensor over the top and down into the freezer, and plugged the freezer electrical cord into the controller outlet. The only other thing I had to do on the freezer was to bypass the old thermostat with a wired connection (basically short across the old thermostat). Programmed the controller with my desired settings and it has been working ever since. It's also convenient that the current freezer temperature is always available on the display. I'm very happy with this product.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Question:
do you recommend the Kegco RTC2 be used on a TRUE GDM10? Does turning on and off the fridge once it get to the set temp hurt the compressor?
by KevinH on June 11, 2019
Answer:
That is exactly what this is used for.
Every time the compressor is turned on and off will wear out the motor. This does not hurt the motor, only causes more wear and tear on it.
