This configurable aerial snow-melting controller makes automatic snow melting cost-effective in even the smallest applications. Heaters operate at temperatures below the default set point (38°F or 3.3°C) only when the sensor detects precipitation at temperatures below 38°F. Plus, the adjustable hold-on period (3 hours default) continues heater operation after snow stops to ensure complete melting. The SCV-DUAL controller includes an internal magnetic reed switch used for manual heater cycling, as well as configuring the temperature set point and the hold-on time. The controller operates from 100 to 240 VAC to work with a wide variety of applications. It also controls heater loads up to 16 amps.
