The smart, reliable design of the PYROSENSE Outdoor Snow Sensor measures the temperature and detects snow and ice. It features a unique "igloo" shape which prevents snow from accumulating around the sensor. The PYROSENSE also includes 4 anti-nesting spikes to help keep birds from nesting on the sensor. Additionally, the sensor does not need to be uninstalled during the off-season, a sensor cap keeps the sensing area clean of dirt and dust when not in use.
A mounting bracket (PYROSB
) is required for installing the PYROSENSE snow sensor. The mounting bracket is designed to hold the sensor securely. It also features a secure track underneath for the cable. The bracket is adjustable from 14.7 - 23.6 inches with easy to use, rectangular "holes" for securing wire ties to hold the cable. The open design of the bracket wall plate allows sufficient space for the wire/cable to pass through and into the building and includes four screw holes to secure the entire bracket the building.
The PYROSENSE CANNOT
operate on its own. It is designed to work in conjunction with a PYROBOX3
* or PYROBOX5**. Each PYROBOX includes the main controller/user interface (PYROCON12) as well as an Upper Limit Temperature Sensor (PYROULS). Each PYROBOX is designed to work as a 4 Zone Controller. Additionally, the PYROBOX5 has an auxiliary circuit for something such as a gutter sensor. If you are installing more than one PYROSENSE snow sensor, each need their own numerical address.
