Raychem self-regulating electric heat trace cables automatically adjust their power output to compensate for temperature changes. Heat is generated as electric current passes through the conductive polymer core between the conductors. As the temperature drops, the number of electrical paths through the core increases and more heat is produced. Conversely, as the temperature rises, the core has fewer electrical paths and less heat is produced
Raychem WinterGard Wet and Gardian self-regulating heat trace cables:
Raychem WinterGard Wet can be cut-to-length, whereas Gardian is a pre-terminated heat trace cable connected to a 30-inch power cord.
