Note: when ordering, please allow a minimum of 1 module length extra for terminations.

  • Constant-Wattage cable uses a fixed resistance wire wrapped around two main conductors (bus wires).  At specific intervals the insulation is removed from the bus wires, forming the Contact Module Points. 
  • These Contact Module Points are staggered along the length of the cable.  This creates consistent heating circuits known as the Module Length.  When power is applied to the bus wires each complete Module Length heats at the rated wattage output. 
  • The incomplete Module Lengths, at the beginning and end of each cable, do not heat.  This allows the “Cold” ends to be safely placed inside of a controller or junction box.
This product requires a temperature controller for safe operation
