Features

  • Type LT self-regulating heater cable is a parallel circuit electric heater strip. An irradiation cross-linked conductive polymer core material is extruded over the multi stranded, tin-plated, 16 gauge copper bus wires. The conductive core material increa
  • Operating principle: The parallel bus wires apply voltage along the entire length of the heater cable. The conductive core provides an infinite number of parallel conductive paths permitting the cable to be cut to any length in the field with no dead or
  • Voltage ratings: 240 Vac products are suitable for use on supply voltages of 208-277 Vac. See catalog pages for details.
