What is an EPIC? >>>
Cool Way Refrigeration Co. Inc. has developed and patented the Electrical Power Interruption Control (US Patent No. 7,740,485). This control will automatically disconnect the power to the cord in the event that the driver does indeed pull away from his spot while forgetting to either de-energize or unplug the power cord.
The EPIC is designed for a quick disconnect from the source so the power cord will be pulled from the source in a de-energized state with little or no damage to the equipment, power cord or connector. This allows for most repairs to be minor and less costly.
