Description

The automatic ZoneBraker Touchscreen Multi-Zone Snow Melting Controller is a high-tech yet intuitive option for controlling your electric snow melting system. The device allows for zoned control of the heating system. This means the total heating coverage can be broken into 4 separate zones (1 zone per contactor for each of the 4 contactors).

These zones can then be "turned on" independently. Zoned control like this means that the ZoneBraker can be used to operate a larger heating system since only one zone will be turned on at a time, which reduces the total power load. This is particularly useful for big projects where available amperage may be limited, like larger driveways or walkways.

The ZoneBraker also allows for users to easily set custom operational times for each zone in case an area of the outdoor surface needs to run (such as the bottom of a sloped driveway where accumulated runoff can be evaporated with a longer runtime).

The ZoneBraker is easy-to-use with its intuitive touchscreen operation along with in-screen access to FAQs and a troubleshooting guide.

This control comes with an upper-limit temperature sensor that will be embedded in the outdoor surface along with the heating elements. This is a supplemental sensor that will help save energy and running costs during operation.

The ZoneBraker does require the use of either a Snow Melt Aerial Sensor (sold separately, SKU: AIR-SS-2) or a Pavement Snow and Ice Sensor Kit (sold separately, SKU: SC-SS-PAV-6E-KIT) to enable automatic control.

Is it okay to cut the heating cable if it is too long for the application for which it was designed?

Never cut the heating cable. A heating cable will not work if it has been cut. If the heating cable is too long, call WarmlyYours to consult with a technician who will guide you in utilizing the additional length of cable.

How does the electric snow melting system compare to hot water tubing (hydronic) systems?

The material costs are similar. However, electric systems are easier to install, with fewer components and significantly lower maintenance costs. Electric systems will run for a shorter period of time to give the same level of performance but with much higher energy efficiency (typically 95%-98% efficient). Controls and sensors required for the two types of systems are very similar. Electric systems do not usually require slab insulation and do not create the concerns typically associated with hydronic systems. These concerns include, but are not limited to, return temperatures, flue gas venting, waterway shrinkage and property damage caused by leaking pipes or tubes.

Does the factory splice need to be completely embedded during installation?

Yes. The manufacturer's splice that connects the heating element to the cold lead should be entirely embedded in a noncombustible material (like asphalt, concrete, or mortar) within the outdoor surface that is being heated.

May I cross or overlap the heating cable?

Never cross, overlap, or allow the heating cables to touch each other. Doing so will quickly cause a circuit failure due to excessive heat build up. Always follow the product instructions and/or design layout plan to ensure the cable is installed with the correct spacing required for proper operation.

May I cut the cold lead wires?

The electrician may shorten the cold lead wires during the installation. Any lead wire extensions/splices must be made in a junction box in accordance with the installation instructions, and must comply with all national and local electrical codes. Never cut the heating cable.
