New Digital Thermostat for Heat Trace System Control

October 25, 2010
The new digital thermostat features a pipe-mounted digital thermostat controller that provides temperature control, power switching, power connection and alarm indication for heat trace systems used in process temperature maintenance or freeze protection applications. The model is compatible with applications where local control of pipe temperature, power switching and alarm indication is required. The unit mounts directly to the pipe and houses the heating cable power connection. Pipe or ambient temperature is monitored with a three-wire, 100 Ohm platinum RTD. The unit is programmable from -40 degrees F to 485 degrees F standard. The thermostat provides digital indication of process set point, process temperature, high and low temperature alarm and sensor failure alarm. The unit is Div 2 hazardous area compliant, with Div 2 product approvals through Factory Mutual, Underwriters Laboratories and Canadian Standards Association pending.
