About the Product

The CIT–1 Snow Sensor detects falling or blowing precipitation as snow at temperatures below 38°F (3.3°C). The CIT–1 provides the industry's 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 rugged aluminum housing and epoxy potting, ensure many years of trouble free service. Precision precipitation and temperature sensors assure snow detection accuracy.

Typical applications include controlling snow melting systems or sidewalks, doorways, stairs, loading docks, ramps for the physically challenged and parking garages. Easy installation is another key CIT–1 feature. Low voltage operation, up to 2,000' (609.6m) separation from the control panel, mast or roof mounting, and noncritical extension wiring are just a few of the features making this possible.
