RSX-15-2 Self-Regulating Industrial Heating Cable - Thermon

Temperature Maintenance: up to 150⁰C

Thermon RSX-15-2-Self-Regulating-Heat-Cable

The Thermon RSX-15-2 Self-Regulating Industrial Heating Cable is purposefully engineered for freeze protection and process temperature maintenance applications, specifically where the watt density requirements make the use of standard BSX cables impractical. This cable exhibits a high level of adaptability, ensuring optimal performance in diverse thermal environments.

Designed to cater to the dynamic nature of heat loss, the RSX 15-2 cable boasts a self-regulating feature that allows it to vary its heat output in response to surrounding conditions along the entire length of a circuit. When the heat loss of insulated pipes, tanks, or equipment increases due to a drop in ambient temperature, the cable responds by increasing its heat output. Conversely, as the heat loss decreases, such as when the ambient temperature rises or product flows, the cable reacts by reducing its heat output. This dynamic response ensures efficient energy utilization and precise temperature control.

Certified for use in ordinary (nonclassified) areas, hazardous (classified) areas, as well as Zone 1 and 2 classified areas, the RSX-15-2 cable meets stringent safety standards, providing a versatile solution for a wide range of industrial settings.

In summary, the RSX-15-2 Self-Regulating Industrial Heating Cable is a reliable and adaptive solution for freeze protection and process temperature maintenance, offering precise and efficient heat control in various environments.

RSX-15-2 Industrial Heating Cable Construction

  1. Nickel-plated copper bus wires (14 AWG)
