Following a winter ice storm, Vermont Electric Power Company determined that a better picture of weather conditions was necessary at their key locations.
Responding to the customer request, we have added a Freezing Rain Sensor for use with the Weather MicroServer.
The sensor uses resonant frequencies to determine the presence of icing conditions. Included is a built-in heater for automatic defrost.
The de-icing (heater) control is automatically triggered with accumulation of 0.5mm of ice on probe.
