Product details

nVent RAYCHEM VIA-DU-20 electronic controller provides control of ramp heating systems in car parks, driveways, staircases and other excess inclines. The controller energises the heating circuits when the ambient temperature falls below a set point and moisture is detected.  The VIA-DU-20 saves energy when compared to other systems regulated by ambient temperature only and also may identify a the risk of potential freezing rain.
