So your old ice sensor keeps icing over at the tower site and you don’t want to go out into the weather to clean it off … What to do?
Replace it with an ice sensor that de-frosts itself, like the New Avionics Ice*Meister Model 9734-HTR.
The Ice*Meister 9734-HTR uses radiant panels near the optical ice sensor to radiate heat to keep the probe active rather than letting it become useless from ice build-up.
The aluminum panels do not warm more than 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit). An energy-saving setting can be used for light duty.
The Ice*Meister can also be used for rain detection.
