Digital heat trace controller: Chromalox
Chromalox is offering a new digital heat trace controller for use with constant wattage, mineral insulated or self-regulating heat trace cables. The model ITC Series intelliTRACE® brand controller is designed for line or ambient sensing heat trace applications in hazardous or non-hazardous areas in industrial settings such as chemical processing, oil and gas exploration, and petrochemical processing. These single, or independently controlled and monitored, dual-circuit microprocessor-based temperature controllers switch 40 amps per circuit at 100-277 Vac, and may be used in either freeze protection or process temperature control applications. The ITC’s compact enclosure facilitates all of the electrical connections including the heating cable, the AC Power and the RTD Sensors. The ITC features a high resolution TFT display, PID or On/Off SSR control, selectable soft start program, dual RTD sensor input per circuit, current load and GFEP monitoring. All process variables may be monitored both locally and remotely. All alarm, communication and system settings are user-adjustable via simple page menu navigation.
