About the Product

The Snow Owl Snow Sensor detects falling or blowing precipitation as snow at temperatures below 38°F (3.3°C). The Snow Owl 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.

The Snow Owl turns off during dry or warm weather to save energy costs. Temperature and time parameters are preset for optimum system performance.

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 Snow Owl 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.
