SpeedTrace Self-Regulating Heating Cable

SpeedTrace Self-Regulating Heating Cable

  • Ideal for easy to install freeze protection and safe thawing of metal and plastic pipe & valve assemblies

  • Heating cable self-regulates temperature by automatically adjusting heat output based on surface and ambient temperatures

  • No temperature controller is required

  • Plug-in ready pre-assembled power cord

  • Grounded design for added safety

  • Suitable for extreme cold conditions as low as -40°F (-40°C)

  • Safe for indoor and outdoor use

  • Safe to overlap heating cable for easy installation

  • Use with Insul-lock° DS foam insulation for maximum thermal efficiency

  • Supply voltage: 110-120VAC or 208-277VAC

  • Nominal Power Output

    • SpeedTrace: 5 watts/ft (16 watts/m) at 50°F (10°C)
    • SpeedTrace Extreme: 8 watts/ft (26 watts/m) at 50°F (10°C)
  • Maximum exposure temperature 150°F (65°C)

  • Moisture and flame resistant thermoplastic elastomer outer jacket

  • 16 AWG bus wires

  • Pre-terminated 30” (76cm) long power cord with

    • 110-120VAC:   Standard 3-prong grounded plug (NEMA-5-15)
    • 208-277VAC:   Bare wire leads
  •  

 

How Self-Regulating Cable Works

 

  • The semi-conductive core material contains a graphite network, which allows electricity to flow from one bus wire to the other. When the core is dense and colder, there are many paths for electricity to take through the graphite network, producing more heat.

  • Since the core material expands as it heats, the graphite network is elongated, disrupting some of the paths. More and more paths are disrupted as heating continues until the system reaches self-controlled thermal stability. When the core material cools, it contracts, reconnecting some of the electrical paths in the graphite network, and more equivalent heat is produced.

  • This temperature response occurs independently at each point along the heater. If an externally produced high temperature occurs next to a low temperature in the cable, each section of heating cable will adjust its own heat output in relation to its own local requirements.
