The company has upgraded its entire line of snow and ice melting systems featuring Nexans electric heating cables. The systems now include an optional remote control panel that enables users to operate the system’s controls from inside the home or building. About the same size as a standard light switch, the remote controls a 90-minute timer and displays the system’s operating status. The control connects directly to the exterior moisture and temperature sensor, which communicates with the system’s control panel. This keeps additional costs of installation to a minimum, since installers need only run one additional wire from the sensor to the control panel. Nexans exterior applications include ground surface snow/ice melting under concrete, brick, pavers, or asphalt. According to the manufacturer, for interior use, the cable is ideal for wet bed or slab installations and used with any type of flooring material including tile, hardwood, laminates, and carpet.
