Intelli-Hood® Kitchen Hood Ventilation Controls

Demand Control Ventilation for Commercial Kitchens

Are your kitchen exhaust and supply fans running at 100 percent speed when there’s no cooking going on? They probably are if you don’t have a demand control kitchen ventilation (DCKV) system. Consequently, you’re wasting energy and conditioned air – at a time when revenue is at its lowest.

Melink’s patented Intelli­-Hood HVAC controls package visually monitors the level of cooking activity and automatically instructs the exhaust fan to operate only as fast as necessary. Intelli­-Hood is installed into new or existing commercial hood systems and transforms a basic stainless steel box into an intelligent energy­-saving machine.

For 30 years, Melink has been helping energy managers like you break the full­speed habit while reducing the cost of operating kitchens.


Intelli-Hood System Overview


Intelli-Hood® Kitchen Hood Ventilation Controls


  1. SYSTEM CONTROLLER
    Receives input from the Touchpad(s) and Hood Controller(s) to control the outputs for the VFDs.
  2. HOOD CONTROLLER
    Oversees Temperature and Optic Sensors on each hood and sends sensor data to the System Controller via RS- 485 communication.
  3. TOUCHPAD
    Provides switches for operation of hood lights and fans, bypass, monitoring LEDs and programming.
  4. OPTIC SENSORS
    Monitor the presence of smoke and vapors inside the hood. Send a signal to the Hood Controller to increase fan speed during cooking.
  5. AIR PURGE UNITS
    Miniature blowers send air into Optic Sensor housings to prevent smoke and grease from collecting on lenses.
  6. TEMPERATURE SENSOR
    Monitors the exhaust air temperature in the duct and sends a signal to the Hood Controller to vary fan speed in proportion to heat load.
  7. VFDs
    Variable Frequency Drives receive signals from the Hood Controller to control the speed of the fans based on heat and smoke load.
