Parallel resistive cables - constant output

Parallel resistive cables have two parallel wires. The wires are set in resistance wires that make contact at regular intervals, so-called contact points.


The current goes through the resistance wires between two contact points and creates a parallel circuit element. The output is thus constant and depends on the resistance in the resistor wire.

The distance between contact points varies depending on the type of cable.

The cables come in various designs with different insulation materials, covers and outputs per metre.

Properties:

  • Connection on one end
  • Can be cut to size on site
  • Constant output per metre
  • Available with various covers
  • Flexible
  • Versions available for Ex environments
  • High temperature tolerance
  • High output per metre

Applications:

  • Frost protection and temperature maintenance for pipes, tanks, containers, pumps and valves.
