The MC2-FC controller is the third generation fruit regulator.

"The MC2-FC has a touchscreen for reading the data, fast processors and ethernet for fast and stable communication with the cooling, fans, defrost and any humidifier."
'Old faithful', the FC-785PC has been around for many years
The design of the new fruit controller also takes into account its predecessor, the FC-785PC. “The housing of the new fruit controller has the same dimensions as its predecessor. This makes replacing the old fruit controllers easier. In addition, the MC2-FC can communicate with the old fruit regulators through smart software. In this way, a company can gradually replace its controllers with the new version and incorporate them into the network of regulators without too many problems.” Where the MC2-FC is a standalone controller, it can also communicate with the MC3-Fruit controller which can Can control 5 different cooling cells. Both controllers can communicate with each other.
“The MC2-FC is an open system so that the owner can easily determine the settings for the device and fill it in properly without the need for an installer. In addition to many advanced and smart functionalities, the controller also has a "relay control". This allows one or more controllers in a network to cool one after the other or simultaneously. This means that you can cool with a small cooling capacity and also save energy, which is good for the purse. The MC2-FC controller is supported by VASP, an advanced management and control software. This also allows the customer to gain insight into the condition of the cold stores via their smartphone and control them remotely.
