A technological innovation developed in the Elica laboratory, makes use of 3 sensors: heat, temperature and humidity.
These sensors enable the hood to react to what is happening on the cooking surface: they can switch the hood on, control the fan speed and switch the hood off.
The sensors monitor the most important elements of cooking: Heat (red colour) the sensor starts working when it registers an increase in temperature in the cooking area; Temperature (yellow colour) the sensor continually monitors the difference in temperature between the general environment and the area immediately below the hood; Humidity (blue colour) the sensor measures the level of humidity produced by the cooking area.
