Features of ETI EUR-5A Snow and Ice Melting Controller
The ETI EUR-5A Snow and Ice Melting Controller brings the performance, economy and energy efficiency of the industry leading APS-3C to a wide range of commercial snow melting applications requiring electrical panel location. A rich assortment of features optimize EUR-5A performance for its intended applications and environment.
- Multiple sensor capability.
- RCU-3 Remote control is included and can be placed at a convenient location for personnel to remotely monitor the snow melting system.
- Building and energy management computer interface.
- 10 hour adjustable heater hold-on timer to ensure complete snow and ice melting.
- Local and remote heater cycle switches.
- High temperature limit. 40F to 90F (4C to 32C) adjustable high temperature limit protects heaters, asphalt, pavement and other sensitive materials from damage due to excessive temperature. The standard temperature sensor is included.
- 24VAC NEC Class II operation for easy installation and safety.
- 35 mm DIN rail mounting in electrical enclosures.
- Energy efficient automatic operation.
Using at least two environmental sensors improves the performance of the snow and ice melting system through superior coverage. A single environmental sensor can miss tracked or blowing and drifting snow. The first environmental sensor detecting snow or ice starts the heaters. When both environmental sensors become clear of snow and ice, the heater hold-on interval begins. The EUR-5A accommodates up to eight environmental sensors.
The EUR-5A brings the performance, economy and energy efficiency of the industry leading APS–3B to a wide range of commercial snow melting applications requiring electrical panel location. A rich assortment of features optimize EUR-5A performance for its intended applications and environment. The EUR-5A interfaces multiple sensors from the CIT–1, GIT–1, SIT–6E family for flexibility in a wide range of pavement, gutter and downspout deicing applications. This feature is essential for large systems employing common heater switching.
