Florida-based New Avionics Corp. has introduced the Ice*Meister Model 9734-SYSTEM, a new compact ice sensor for use on wind power turbine nacelles and meteorological towers.

In operation, 9734 is a digital/optical go/no-go ice sensor. Anytime it "sees" that liquid rain has turned to solid ice, 9734 alerts its host system by closing its output relay contacts and energizing its indicator LED. When the ice has disappeared, New Avionics says 9734's output relay contacts open and its indicator LED is de-energized.

The company adds that 9734 provides its own mounting plate that bolts to the top of any nacelle and comes standard with six feet of lightweight blue cable. As an available option, virtually any length cable can be provided from the factory, New Avionics adds.
