rain[e]H3 is designed for extreme cold climate conditions of up to -40°C as it has 3 electronically regulated heating circles (ring-, funnel-outlet heating). It’s weather-proof and long-living all-metal housing fulfils the demands of DWD with regard to corrosion- and weather resistance. The integrated outdoor temperature sensor, the electronically monitoring when opening the housing and the remote maintenance are features of continuous further developments. Installation and maintenance of rain[e]H3 can be processed easily and quickly.
