Raychem EM2-XR-46-55m Self Regulating Heating Cable
Quick Find: 9996
Part Code: 1244-001516
Snow and frost melting cable 300 W/m in concrete at 0 Deg C.
The self regulating EM2-XR cable automatically adjusts its power output in accordance with ambient conditions; more power is produced in harsh freezing conditions and less power in marginal freezing conditions.
It can be cut to length onsite providing complete flexibility in installation. It can also be provided as a configured heating unit to meet your specific design requirements, including pre-installed terminations and power cable.
- Easy to install with cut-to-length cable
- Safe with overheating not possible, even when crossed or closely spaced.
- Robust cable resistant to damage during installation.
- Maintenance free as there are no moving parts.
|Max Exposure Temp||100°C|

|Min Installation Temp||85m (50 A)|
|Nominal Power Output||300 W/m² in concrete at 0 °C|
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, when using trace heating on plastic pipes ensure that ATE- 180 aluminium tape is used to help disperse the heat around the pipe.
Yes, utilising our in-house design facilities, we can design your complete trace heating requirement.
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 ...
Most applications can simply be straight traced, reducing costs of materials and installation time without compromising on operational requirements.
Yes, thermal insulation is required on all heat trace applications. Without insulation, surface heat losses can increase approximately 4-5 times.
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...

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...
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...
This is used for a pipe freeze protection application. Electric heat tracing, heat tape or surface heating, is a system used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes and vessels. Trace heat...
