Product overview

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.

Product features

  • 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.

Technical specifications

Max Exposure Temp100°C
Min Installation Temp-20 Deg C
Min Installation Temp85m (50 A)
Nominal Power Output300 W/m² in concrete at 0 °C

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.

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.

What is Heat Trace?

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...

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...
