The PM-DP Wired Remote Control Panel is a recommended upgrade addition to the PM-2B or PM-5 Snow Sensor controllers.
The PM-DP brings control and monitoring of your snow melt system indoors. One glance at the display confirms the system has successfully triggered and is operating. The PM-DP is compatible with the PM-2B, PM-224, PM-824, PM-5, and DS-8 rain/snow sensor controllers.
This control panel allows convenient indoor monitoring and control of the system for manual on, automatic, and standby operation. It communicates with the snow sensor through a simple low-voltage cable (not included).
The Display Panel remote switch is typically mounted in a single gang 2x4 box or a multi-gang box and can be up to 800 Ft away from the Sensor. Simply connect it with low voltage wire (it is powered by the sensor) using a 5 conductor cable; telephone or computer cable works well in most cases. It is very low conduit is not required.
A connector with 6 inches of wire is included and you must supply additional wire to run to the sensor.
Operational temperature range for the electronic components is -40°C to +85°C. Therefore, the PM-DP can be installed indoors or outside with proper protection from the elements.
The PM-DP may be installed in a conventional single or multi-gang electrical enclosure. If installed in a multi-gang enclosure next to high voltage equipment, the PM-DP and its interconnecting cable must be isolated from high voltage wires and devices. Consult local electrical codes to determine the isolation method(s) required. The PM-DP can be installed up to 500 feet away from the ProMelt snow sensor.
