HOW SELF REGULATING CABLES WORK
COLD AMBIENT HIGH POWER OUTPUT
If the temperature in the immediate vicinity of the self-regulating temperature maintenance heating cable is cold, the heat output from the heating cable is increased. The polymeric core of the cable contracts, which creates many electrical paths across the integrated, carbon particles.
WARM AMBIENT LOW POWER OUTPUT
In response to a warmer environment, the heat output of the self-regulating cable is reduced. The polymeric core of the cable expands, reducing the electrical paths.
HOT AMBIENT VIRTUALLY NO OUTPUT
If the temperature in the environment of the self-regulating heating cable reaches a high temperature, the heat output is practically cut off.
Due to the maximum expansion of the polymeric core of the cable, almost all the electrical paths are cut off.
