Description


Snow and ice melting systems control with pilot duty

Utilizing standard Environmental Technology snow and ice sensors (sold separately), the automatic Snow Switch® Model PD Pro control is used in snow and ice detection and melting for pavement, sidewalks, loading docks, roofs, gutters and downspouts in commercial and residential environments.

ETI Proprietary Moisture, Temperature Sensors

The PD Pro interfaces with up to two standard Environmental Technology sensors to meet site requirements. The CIT–1, GIT–1, and SIT–6E sensors reliably detect snow and ice melting in gutter and pavement applications.

The CIT–1 aerial snow sensor detects falling or blowing precipitation before snow or ice begin to form, allowing the control to begin managing the system. The CIT–1 sensor may be roof or mast mounted and can be paired with the GIT–1 sensor for gutter applications or the SIT–6E sensor for pavement applications.

All three sensors detect precipitation as snow at temperatures below 38°F (3.3°C). The PD Pro is signaled only if moisture occurs below this temperature, saving energy and ensuring thorough snow and ice melting. Since 1968, these sensors have been the industry’s most versatile and cost-effective automatic snow melting control sensors.

Automatic and Manual-Override

The PD Pro features automatic and manual-override operator controls. The adjustable Hold-On timer continues heater operations up to 8 hours after snow or ice conditions end to ensure complete melting. The Heater Cycle control button allows manual initiation or cancellation of a heating cycle. The optional RCU–3 remote control unit can be located for convenient monitoring and control. These flexible control options provide complete snow melting and water evaporation at a low operating cost.

When Pilot Duty is a Better Choice

The PD Pro weighs only 3 pounds and measures 5 1/2” (L) x 8 1/8” (W) x 4 3/8” (H). Comprehensive instruction manuals simplify installation and operation. These products are also supported by Environmental Technology Technical Support.

The PD Pro is a capable snow and ice control for medium-sized applications whose features and power requirements do not require an APS or EUR Series control panel.
