Siemens Electronics has developed the electronics and PLC components that are used throughout our machines. The Kooler Ice electronics system is the heart and soul of our machines and will display alerts and important machine functions on an LCD panel inside the machine.

Siemens industrial grade PLC’s, Contactors, Relays and HMI (Human Interface Screens) are used throughout our machines and all are secured in an industrial grade, waterproof panel to provide our customers with the most reliable, serviceable, and durable electronic design in the ice vending industry.
