Snow Melting Slab Sensor Kit (ETOG-56 Sensor + Housing)
Snow Melting Sensors Description
This sensor kit includes a ground sensor and a sensor tube. The sensor tube functions as a housing, which allows for the ground sensor to be more easily replaced than if it was directly embedded in the outdoor surface. This kit is compatible with the SCE-120 Snow Melting Economy Control. The ground sensor, type ETOG-56, is designed for embedding in the outdoor surface using the ETOK-1 sensor tube. The ground sensor detects both temperature and moisture.
The sensor tube, type ETOK-1, is a mounting tube for ETOG-56, supplied with a wood plug for covering the ETOK-1 hole during installation.
Two ETOG-56 ground sensors can be connected to the SCE-120 Controller to keep large areas ice-free, even if they are exposed to a range of different conditions. Where an asphalt surface is used, or where easy installation is desired, installing ETOG-56 together with ETOK-1 is the obvious choice.
Cannot be used as a replacement for ETOG-55.

Customer Questions & Answers
Snow Melting Sensors has 26 Questions and Answers.
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.
That depends on a number of variables (like the temperature outside) but generally speaking these snow melting systems are designed to melt 1" - 3" of snow per hour. Anything above 3" per hour is typically considered blizzard conditions.
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.
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.
When installing outdoor WarmlyYours snow melting cables for your driveway, patio, walkway, terrace, stairs, ramp, etc. - 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 installation instructions and/or design layout plan to ensure the cable is installed with the correct spacing required for proper operation.

Great Customer Service for an Excellent Product
Richard K., Lakewood, NJ on 03/17/2023
Our experience with WarmlyYours was great from the beginning. They were easy to work with and provided a custom plan and all the necessary hardware to accomplish the job. We changed the design in the process and we were helped every step of the way. The system was on just this week and everything functioned accordingly.
Must have this if you live in a snowy region
