Arizona State University
Tier2-4: Vending Machine Sensors
University Sustainability Practices
Has the institution installed vending machine motion sensors for at least one vending machine?:
A brief description of the technology used:
All of Arizona State University’s 220 cold beverage vending machines are Energy Star™ certified and are equipped with Energy Miser™ devices. These devices sense usage and power off the refrigeration unit when the machines are not used. All front panel lights in these machines are turned off, except for one machine located in a dark entryway that uses the machine lighting for access.
All 25 refrigerated sandwich machines are equipped with an energy savings program that goes into sleep mode when not used. Sleep mode turns off the front panel lights and reduces refrigeration. These machines are the most energy efficient available.
All 55 snack vending machines are not refrigerated. No usage sensor is needed in these machines. They use low power LED lighting. These machines are the most energy efficient available.
