Positive events ...

in the form of sunshine trigger the three identical sensor elements' quick response. The elements themselves are absolutely immovable and thus guarantee maintenance-free operation, extreme robustness and longevity. Aligned to the nearest pole - the sensor is easy to install at all latitudes. In ice and snow, the system's two-phase heating is controlled externally or by an internal thermostat. The amount of sunny hours per day is of particular importance both for the growth of plants and for human well-being.

  • stable glass cylinder for sensor protection
  • waterproof cable plug connection for safe application
  • innovative humidity indicator for easy handling
