Rain Collector Cone & Heater f/AeroCone - *Not For Use With Classic Rain Cone
Rain collector cone and heater replacement kit Vantage Pro2 rain collectors with AeroCone. Heats ice and snow to keep your rain collector from freezing.
All Vantage Pro2 stations come with the AeroCone. Unfortunately, the heater will not fit inside the AeroCone. This kit includes the heater and the larger old style cone to replace the AeroCone for those freezing winters that bring snow and ice.
Keep snow from filling your Vantage Pro2 rain collector with this heater. Great for use in cold climates to measure freezing rain or the moisture content of snowfall.
The heater warms the inside of the cone during cold weather. A thermostat switch turns the power off when temperatures rise and back on when they fall.
Note: The heater must be plugged into an electrical outlet. Heater is not compatible with AeroCone; it is only compatible with the old style, larger rain cones.Specifications:
