Scotsman Ice Systems Releases Self-Monitoring Ice Machine System


VERNON HILLS, ILL.—Scotsman Ice Systems has released Prodigy, an ice machine self-monitoring system that provides up-to-the-minute reporting on the machine’s performance, as well as maintenance needs. This latest advance in ice making visually indicates when it’s making ice, as well as when it’s due for critical maintenance procedures. The external diagnostic light panel makes it easy for anyone in the kitchen to read and understand—from senior managers to dishwashers.

Scotsman says Prodigy is one of the most energy-efficient machines on the market today. Prodigy’s energy standards make it one of the first cubers to exceed both the 2008 California Energy Commission and 2010 Federal Energy Efficiency regulations by up to 22 percent*. It also qualifies for the EnerLogic seal, awarded by parent company Enodis to its most energy-efficient products. All of these things combined mean that Prodigy not only equates to good energy stewardship, but to a stronger bottom line as well.

Preventative maintenance and servicing is easy with Prodigy’s SmartBoard advanced features and diagnostic code display. Technicians can determine any operating issue quickly, ensuring equipment is fixed right the first time, saving customers time and money.

In addition to its self-monitoring, money-saving and energy-efficient qualities, the Prodigy cuber also features the patented WaterSense adaptive purge control. This feature automatically adapts to varying water conditions by constantly measuring the water quality and automatically adjusts the purge water amount to minimize scale buildup in every type of water. The result is a longer time between cleanings and fresher tasting ice.

Prodigy will be introduced at the Western Foodservice Expo in Los Angeles in August. For more information on Prodigy, visit www.scotsman-ice.com.
