Image of SBS-xx-CW-40

The SBS-XX-CW-40 control panel for ice and snow prevention systems provides a totally integrated electrical safety, connection and control solution for Raychem EM4-CW constant wattage heating cables for surface snow melting applications.

The control panel comprises the VIA-DU-20 multi-sensor control unit for energy efficient ground surface heating, and integrated electrical safety devices.

The SBS-xx-CW-40 panels can switch up to 18 maximum circuits of EM4-CW cables. The panel also includes electrical circuit protection devices (C-type circuit breakers) and residual current devices for safety and peace of mind. The panels need only be connected to the 400Vac (3 phase) supply.


  • Energy Efficiency through multi-sensor (temperature and moisture) controller input
  • All trace heating circuit protection built-in; no need for additional heater circuit protection devices.
  • EN60204-1 and EN60439-1 compliant multi-circuit control panels
  • Robust metal enclosure (RAL7035 – light Grey) housing with IP54 rating.
