Welbilt needed help from engineers at Occam Technology Group to re-design an oil conservation fryer. Utilized by the largest fast food chains, the oil conserving fryer supports segmented cooking, programmable product buttons, load compensation, and prompt-guided maintenance procedures. The controller makes these fryers user friendly and labor-efficient. It even monitors and reports on oil level, oil life, cook counts, and fryer performance. Occam Technology Group performed Hardware/Firmware/Systems requirements and design reviews, as well as, generation and implementation of a complete verification and validation process prior to re-release and market trials. Occam Technology Group performed a complete Firmware re-design and development of sensor, thermal, power, motion control and communication (LON/CAN/Zigbee) sub-systems.
