Clear View II
are complete window defrosters
These defrosters match the look and performance
of factory installed defrosters, melting snow and ice plus clearing
mist in minutes.
How they work
Clear View defrosters use fine heating elements that bond
directly to the surface to be defrosted. These horizontal
elements connect to the Clear View vertical side buss bars which
have integral tabs for power and ground.
The defroster grid is engineered to have
an electrical resistance which, when powered,
provides the heat needed to clear windows of snow and ice. The heating
is accomplished through contact between the defroster elements and
Clear View self-adhesive heating elements
come on pre-spaced rolls for easy and accurate application. These
heating elements match the color of factory defrosters and adhere
directly to the glass.
elements are simply trimmed to size between the defrosters minimum and maximum
lengths for a custom fit during installation. There is no plastic
backing left on the window to crack or yellow.
The defroster is connected electrically through
the buss bar tabs to the vehicles power and ground, then activated
with the automatic ThermaSync defroster control.
The ThermaSync defroster controls are available in two series
the 2700 and 2800 and are shipped with complete Clear View
defrosters. These controls feature a set activation time
normally 10 minutes with automatic shut off and LED indicator
light. The activation switch is a push button and can be mounted
up to 30 inches from the control body making installation easy.

control and settings for the Clear View defroster you order!

Clear View Defroster
Clear View defrosters have a minimum and maximum length and are
trimmed to size during installation. Defrosters operate a little
warmer at the minimum lengths.
The 2609, 2612
and 2616 defrosters have been updated and are still available. See
the Clear View Legacy
New ThermaSync defroster controls offer reliable automatic
shut off timing and enable many new defroster options in 12 and
volt defroster controls come in two models. The 2700 series
control features simple automatic ten minute timing while the
2800 series has adjustable
automatic shut off timing, power modulation and can be networked
for single switch operation of several defrosters.
The 2700 series is a relay based ThermaSync defroster
control which turns the defroster on for a set time typically
ten minutes. Activation is indicated
by a red lamp on the switch face. The defroster shuts off automatically
after a standard 10 minutes.
The 2800 series of ThermaSync controls
feature automatic shut off timing that can be set. Some
defrosters require power modulation which reduces the apparent
voltage provided to the defroster. Power modulation is only
available in the 2800 series.
