Multi-functionality from a legend in control solutions

In every step of the winemaking process, conditions have to be just right. While you can’t control when buds blossom or when
fruit will be ready to pick, Johnson Controls can help you better control the fermentation process. Our PENN line of temperature controls has been setting the standards in dependability and innovation for nearly 100 years. Now our new A525 fermentation tank controller handles multiple chores in the cellar or brewhouse. Without adding new things for you to learn or worry about.

Easy programming saves time
The innovative A525 tank controller is easy to set up, and easy to use. Plain language programming simplifies complex
functions, including temperature control, pump control sequence and alarms. A wide range of options allows you to customize control functions. And the A525 integrates with HVAC equipment for facility-wide environmental control and other devices that have embedded controls. So you can take advantage of predictive diagnostics, improved energy efficiency and reduced operating costs.

Monitors tank conditions round the clock
One of the most critical steps in your process is what happens in the tank. The more you know about the conditions, the more control you have over the quality. The A525 offers flexible remote monitoring and report generation so you know exactly what’s going on 24/7. You can select alarming conditions that can be delivered on screen. It will automatically record alarms and temperatures throughout the fermentation process.
