SUBDIVISION BRefrigerated Vending Machines

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

ASHRAE 32.1

ASHRAE 32.1 means the ASHRAE standard 32.1-2010 entitled Methods of Testing for Rating Vending Machines for Bottled, Canned, and Other Sealed Beverages. (ASHRAE 32.1)

refrigerated beverage vending machine

refrigerated beverage vending machine means a self-contained product that is designed to accept consumer payments and dispense only bottled, canned or other sealed refrigerated beverages. (distributeur automatique de boissons réfrigérées)

snack and refrigerated beverage vending machine

snack and refrigerated beverage vending machine means a self-contained product that

  • (a) is designed to accept consumer payments and dispense packages of solid non-refrigerated food and bottled, canned or other sealed refrigerated beverages; and

  • (b) has a vendible capacity of not more than 100 of those beverages. (distributeur automatique de boissons réfrigérées et de collations)

standby mode

standby mode means a mode into which the product automatically enters during a period of extended inactivity that is capable of reducing its energy consumption by means of the following power states:

  • (a) a refrigeration power state in which the average temperature of the refrigerated beverages is allowed to rise to 4.4°C; and

  • (b) if the product is equipped with lights,

    • (i) a lighting power state in which the lights are turned off, and

    • (ii) a machine power state in which the power states referred in paragraph (a) and subparagraph (i) are in operation at the same time. (mode veille)

V

V means, in respect of a refrigerated beverage vending machine, its volume, expressed in litres, calculated in accordance with Appendix C to ASHRAE 32.1. (V)

Refrigerated Beverage Vending Machines

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A refrigerated beverage vending machine is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 648, a refrigerated beverage vending machine is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2007.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to refrigerated beverage vending machines described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) The refrigerated beverage vending machine complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by sections 1 to 7.2 of ASHRAE 32.1 that are applicable to a refrigerated beverage vending machine as defined in section 646, except that the ambient temperature during the testing to determine Edaily must be 23.9°C ± 1°C. However, if the product was manufactured before August 31, 2012 and it is not designed to display and dispense 20 or more discrete types of beverages, the ambient temperature during the testing to determine the Edaily must be 32.2°C ± 1°C.
