Size: 13.600 Inch Length x 3 Inch Width x 3.400 Inch Height
Easy Heat In-ground moisture sensor is encased within a rugged enclosure and is intended to be embedded within the surface being heated, usually concrete or asphalt. It is supplied with a protective field cover to simplify asphalt or concrete installations and comes with 30 ft of wire for connection of its control unit. Sensor provides an integral 1/2 Inch NPT conduit connection and is perfect for snow & ice melting installation & operation instructions.
The connection wire can be extended up to 500 ft with an appropriately rated 18AWG 4 wire shielded stranded cable. Low- voltage sensor senses falling or drifting snow
by melting it on the grid area of the sensor and then detects the presence of moisture by measuring an electrical signal between the grid bars. It also measures the temperature of the surface.
Sensor uses dual sensing technique that allows to control the equipment like mats, cables in the optimum manner that helps to assure minimum energy costs and also provides reliable surface snow detection. It operates at temperature between -40 to 70 deg C and has a power supply voltage of 24 VAC. Sensor produces a maximum current of 500 milli-Amps.
