The Model CG-ICM-F window condensation sensor is a member of the CG -ICM series of condensation sensors. These integrate the proven Model CG CONSENSOR condensation sensor with a Model ICM Circuit Module.
They provide fully isolated (Voltage Free) Normally Closed solid state contacts for systems with -- or without, a Controller. They can also be used to directly control fans, heaters, valves, etc. (within the unit's contact rating). The contacts are normally closed as a "Fail Safe" feature. The contacts open when the onset of condensation is sensed, and close again when the threat passes.
Note: Normally Open contacts are also available on special order, but these lack an inherent element of "fail safe" operation. To order, add “-N/O” to the model designation.
ALL CG -ICM SERIES INCLUDE A Bi-COLOR LED TO INDICATE:
NO CONDENSATION, CONDENSATION, SENSOR FAULT*
**Sensor Fault is a really unique feature of the CG-ICM Series. If the sensor malfunctions, it is indicated by the LED. At the same time, condensation is signalled to draw attention to the issue.
These faults can often be remedied in the field.
Size - 1.1" footprint x nom. 1.7" H from mounting surface
Power - 24 VAC ( 20 to 28 VAC) @ nom. 40 mA or
12 to 30 VDC @ nom. 10 mA (20mA worse case)
( Note: There may be a momentary 1.5 Amp
Inrush current for approx. 3 - 5 mSec. at power-up)
Contact Rating - 36 volts AC/DC 1/2 A max. @ 25*C
At 24VAC: 8W @ 25*C / 7W @ 40*C
/ 6W @ 65*C / 5W @ 70*C / 5W @ 80*C
Electrical Isolation - >500 volts from mounting surface
Temperature - 65*C ( 80*C on special order )
Mounting – Uses double sided tape to mount to clean flat surfaces
The CONSENSOR is a patented unique, well proven condensation sensor that instantly reacts to the actual initial onset of the condensation process. Unlike other window condensation sensors that require substantial condensate deposits to respond, the Model CG-ICM-F with the CONSENSOR usually responds to window condensation before there is any perceptible trace of condensate.
