The ETI CIT-1 snow sensor detects falling or blowing precipitation as snow at temperatures below 38degF (3.3degC). The CIT-1 provides the industrys most versatile and cost effective automatic snow melting control when used with any APS or EUR series control panel, old or new. Reliability and sensitivity are key CIT-1 features. The solid state design, combined with a rugged aluminum housing and epoxy potting, ensure many years of trouble free service. Precision precipitation and temperature sensors assure snow detection accuracy.
Minimum snow melting cost because the system will automatically turn on only when needed
No supervision required
Reliable and accurate snow sensing
Senses both temperature and precipitation
Typical applications where the CIT-1 snow sensor is used include snow melting systems for sidewalks, driveways, doorways, stairs, loading docks, ramps for the physically challenged and parking garages. Easy installation is another key CIT-1 feature. Low voltage operation that allows up to 2000 ft (609.6m) separation from the control panel (control panel sold separately).
The snow sensor must be mounted securely in upright position in clear and open area that is typical of area to be melted and positioned either above the roof line or far enough away from the building so as not to be protected from the falling snow.
