Orbit Radiant Heating

The DS-8 is primarily designed for gutter, downspout, and roof ice melting and small satellite antenna deicing. The totally sealed, low voltage, remote mount precipitation sensor allows installation of the small sensor head in a downspout, the bottom of a gutter, or at the end of an antenna boom, up to 10' away, while keeping the main controller in a more convenient or protected location.

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 Units can used as stand alone controls for applications that are less then 30 total amps. In applications that are larger then 30 total amps, they can used in conjunction with our RSMCK Series Control Systems.
