Premium Snow & Ice Melt Control Description
The SCP-120 premium, automatic snow/ice melting control provides for easy installation and operation to minimize energy use. For use with WarmlyYours snow melting or roof and gutter deicing systems, it operates electrically- and mechanically-held contactors for pilot duty applications.
The SCP-120 Premium Snow Melt Control includes an OT-Sensor (for use as an additional slab temperature sensor) and features a NEMA 3R wall-mounted enclosure (recommended for indoor installation). With an Energy Management Computer (EMC) interface and heater hold-on and test capabilities, the unit is rated for 120/240 VAC and supports up to six sensors (aerial, gutter, or pavement). cULus Listed for use in Canada and the U.S.
The maximum load for this control is 24 Amps. We do recommend that it is used in conjunction with a compatible relay panel.

Customer Questions & Answers
Premium Snow & Ice Melt Control 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.
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.
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.
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.

Super simple to use

The controls are super simple to use and I am very happy with the fact it can be remotely controlled using the EMC Interface.
