More About PyroSelf Snow and Ice Sensor

The PYROSelf is a stylish, smart and reliable snow and ice sensor/controller. Installed outdoors, it measures the temperature and detects snow, sending the information via the PYROCON12 controller to the ice dam heat tape system. The PYROSelf is connected to the snow melting controller (PYROCON12) with a 30 ft (10m), 24V 4-wire cable and communicating with the controller, providing the temperature value and snow detection based on the adjustable parameters for your ice dam prevention needs.

The plastic “igloo” shape design helps to assure reliable snow/ice detection, as it prevents snow from accumulating around the sensing area. Four holes around the sensor are designed to hold the anti-nesting spikes, keeping birds away. The sensor cap helps to keep the sensing area clean from dust, dirt and debris during summer and when your snow melting system is not used.

The measured temperature and the snow detection are visible on the back lit LCD display of the PYROCON12 controller.
