The DS-5 is essentially a DS-2B fitted with a dual 30A @ 240 VAC load control contact set. It is primarily designed for larger satellite antenna/broadcast tower deicing and pavement snow melting applications. Specifically, any job that a DS-2B can perform a DS-5 can perform with double the load handling capability.

All DS units operate by detecting temperature through a base mounted thermistor and precipitation using a precipitation sensor. This sensor consists of a printed circuit board etched with interleaved traces mounted in a conduit fitting. The sensor is heated using a self-regulating thermistor. When rain or snow land on the sensor the traces are bridged and a closure is detected. The heater then rapidly evaporates the moisture, clearing the sensor.

DS-5 Units can be used as stand alone controls for applications that are less then 60 total amps. In applications that are larger then 60 total amps, they can used in conjunction with our RSMCK Series Control Systems.
