R2-D2 uses his heat induction unit to melt ice on the planet Akuria II.

A heat induction unit was an internal device on at least some astromech droids. When activated, it could generate heat up to several thousand degrees. The purpose of the heat induction unit may have been similar to that of the rheostat, and it may be possible that the two devices were one and the same.
