About the Product

The CS-AS is a stylish, smart and reliable Snow and Ice sensor. Installed outdoors it measures the temperature and detects snow, sending the information via the controller to the heating system.

The CS-AS is connected to the Snow Melting Controller with a 30 feet (10 m.), 24V 4 wire cable and communicating with the controller, providing the temperature value and the snow detection based on the adjustable parameters.

The plastic "igloo" shape design helps to assure reliable Snow/Ice detection as it prevents from the snow to accumulate around the sensing area. The 4 holes around the sensors were designed to hold the Anti Nesting spikes, keeping birds away from the sensor.

The sensor cap helps to keep the sensing area clean from dust and dirt during summer time and when the snow melting system is not used. The measured temperature and the snow detection are visible on the controller display.

The ChromaMelt system can work with up to 4 CS-AS Snow Sensors daisy chained one after the other and link the 4 output zones of snow melting to the controller. A special sensor with pre-defined address is needed as an additional sensor besides the CS-AS who is active as #1. CS-AS #2, CS-AS #3 and CSAS #4 are the required sensors when 2, 3 or 4 sensors are needed.

Each snow sensors must have different MAC (Media Access Control) address in order to communicate with the main board.
