Product overview

Model NGC-40-CAN48

The Raychem NGC-40 is a multipoint electronic control, monitoring and power distribution system with a unique single-point controller architecture for heat-tracing used in process temperature maintenance and freeze protection applications. By taking advantage of innovative modular packaging techniques, the Raychem NGC-40 system provides configuration and component flexibility so that it may be optimized for a customer’s specific needs. The Raychem NGC-40 uses a single controller module per heat-tracing circuit for maximum reliability. The Raychem NGC-40 control system can be powered between 100 to 240 Vac, while mechanical contactors (EMRs) or solidstate relays (SSRs) allow circuit switching up to 60 A at 600 Vac with single- or three-phase power. The Raychem NGC-40 control modules include ground-fault detection and protection and eliminate the need for external GF circuit breakers, thus reducing the overall cost of the Heat Management System. The control modules also guarantee precise single-phase and three-phase line current measurements.
Up to eight (8) Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) can be used for each heat-tracing circuit allowing a variety of temperature control, monitoring, and alarming configurations. The NGC-40 System accommodates RTD inputs from a variety of sources. In addition to hardwiring an RTD directly into a Heat Trace Control module, RTDs can be wired to Input/Output modules (IO Module) within the panel or Remote Monitoring Modules (RMM2) in the field and assigned to heat tracing circuits through software. This means that a Raychem NGC-40 system can be optimized for the specific needs of an application or customer. Each IO module accepts up to four additional RTD inputs. Each RMM2 module installed in the field can accept up to 8 RTDs. 16 RMM2 Modules can be daisy chained together via RS-485 for a total of 128 (8x16) RTDs. Since multiple RMM2's can be networked over a single cable to the Raychem NGC- 40, the cost of RTD field wiring will be significantly reduced. The Raychem NGC-40 system supports multiple communications ports, allowing serial interfaces (RS-485 and RS-232) and network connections (Ethernet) to be used with external devices. All communications with the NGC- 40 panel are accomplished through the NGC-40-BRIDGE module which acts as the central router for the system, connecting the panel’s control modules, IO modules, Raychem Touch 1500 touch screen and Remote Monitoring.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use heat trace on plastic pipes?

Yes, when using trace heating on plastic pipes ensure that ATE- 180 aluminium tape is used to help disperse the heat around the pipe.

Can you design a full surface heating system for me?

Yes, utilising our in-house design facilities, we can design your complete trace heating requirement.

Do I have to allow extra heat for pumps and valves?

If the surface area of the pump is substantially greater than that of the adjoining pipework then extra heating cable may need to be considered (depending on wattage of cable installed). Pumps and ...

Do I have to spiral the trace heating onto the pipe?

Most applications can simply be straight traced, reducing costs of materials and installation time without compromising on operational requirements.

Read more

Do I need to use thermal insulation?

Yes, thermal insulation is required on all heat trace applications. Without insulation, surface heat losses can increase approximately 4-5 times.

Does my trace heating system require maintenance?

Generally, no maintenance of our trace heating systems is required but it is recommended that the system is checked for operational and electrical integrity periodically or prior to the winter or p...

How do I test my trace heating system is working properly?

System checks depend on the system installed, constant wattage systems can be fully checked for insulation resistance and continuity. Self regulating systems can only be checked for insulation resi...

What is heat tape for water pipes?

When water pipes are exposed to cold temperatures either outdoors, underground or in small spaces, you can protect them from freezing by wrapping them with heat tape. Heating tape is actually a cor...

What is self regulating heating tape?

Self limiting / self regulating heating tape adjusts heat output to equal the heat loss from the pipe work. As pipe temperature falls the electrical conductivity of the semi-conductive core increas...
