Snow Melt Controls

Heat-Timer provides snow melt controls that insure maximum efficiency and lowest cost of operation of your residential or commercial snow melt solution. These sophisticated snow melt control systems interface with both electrical and hydronic snow melt installations to help reduce snow removal costs, help to avoid slip and fall accidents, and help prevent damage to expensive flooring caused by tracked in sand, salt or other chemicals used to melt ice.

Heated Driveway’s and More

Our controls are used on driveway’s, walkways, entrance ways, parking garage ramps, loading ramps, stairways and other areas to keep them completely free of snow and ice.

DIGI-SPAN® RSM-Elite for Residential Snow Melt Control

The Heat-Timer RSM is designed to control slab hydronic heating systems used to melt ice or snow in  residential or light commercial applications. It can be used in heated driveways, staircases, sidewalks, or other locations, which must be kept clear on snow or ice. The RSM will activate the slab heating system when the outdoor temperature is low enough that ice or snow could form and maintains a maximum supply temperature to prevent damage to the slab.  The RSM will also monitor Return temperature from the slab to ensure the slab is slowly heated preventing any slab damage from rapid heat up.

The Heat-Timer SMC (Snow Melt Control)

The SMC is a commercial snow and ice melting control for slab hydronic heating systems. The SMC is designed to operate a motorized 3-way valve, system pumps and boiler burner function. . The SMC uses a slab temperature sensor with a moisture detection element to start the melting process. For older / existing systems in which a slab sensor cannot be install the SMC uses the outdoor temperature to start the melting process.  The SMC can use a Boiler Return sensor to reduce the potential of thermal shock and condensation of the boiler.  The SMC is equipped with an Alarm output that is activated for any sensor failure, the slab not receiving sufficient heat, or if the slab does not reach its melting temperature within 24 hours.
