The 120WXH has been carefully designed with a highly effective, thermostatically controlled, heating system for operation in ice-prone areas—both onshore and offshore. The heater element keeps the wind channel free of snow and ice. Reliability and performance, along with no moving parts, makes the 120WXH the model of choice in cold climates.
