ETI SIT-6E Pavement Mounted Snow and Ice Sensor
The SIT-6E, which replaces the SIT-5E, reliably detects snow and ice conditions on pavement surfaces. This ensures that deicing heaters operate only while needed which minimizes energy costs without sacrificing snow melting effectiveness. A built-in hold-on timer keeps heaters operating for an hour after snow stops to help ensure complete snow melting.
The SIT-6E senses snow as moisture detected between the limits of -30 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Operation in the 32 to 38 degree temperature range eliminates otherwise slow melting.
The SIT-6E accurately measures pavement temperature by compensating for its internal heating. This eliminates the cost and complexity of a separate pavement temperature sensor. For improved efficiency, the SIT-6E mounts closely to the deicing heaters to ensure that pavement and sensor become dry at about the same time.
The new mounting system helps align the SIT-6E with the pavement surface. Six available conduit locations add to installation flexibility and simplicity. The sensor subassembly is field replaceable without disturbing the pavement. The SIT-6E is a NEC Class 2 low voltage device which simplifies installation.
Only brass, epoxy, and stainless steel are exposed to the pavement surface. Precision machining gives the SIT-6E a handsome appearance that will please the building owner, engineer, and architect.
