Danfoss Introduces New Snow Melt Controller


The new Danfoss OJ ETO2 Snow Melt controller offers an intelligent all-in-one control solution for ice and snow melting suitable for any application which uses hydronic or electric heating, including driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, stairs, ramps, bridges, and more.

Optimal operation is ensured through output control, making the system both effective and economical. ETO2 offers an environmentally friendly method of snow melting by eliminating the need for chemical treatments.

By using data received from the snow melting system’s temperature and moisture sensors, the controller ensures that the system is only energized when snow or ice are detected – enabling proficient management of energy consumption while keeping areas free of ice and snow.

An easily operated encoder button and backlit graphic display ensures quick and easy configuration and simple indication of temperature, status, etc.

The ETO2 can control up to two zones by activating an individual output for each zone. In a two-zone hydronic application, these outputs are connected directly to circulation pumps. For one-zone hydronic systems, the ETO2 ensures the required supply water temperature by regulating a motorized mixing valve in response to supply water temperature.

The advanced technology of the ETO2 has many benefits including improved efficiency, productivity, safety, and reliability in residential and commercial applications.

Despite winter weather, the ETO2 aids in the prevention of highly dangerous icy walkways, public roads, bridges, commercially owned parking lots, loading platforms, and more.
