The Grand Meyer self-regulating heating cable type PHC-30 is an electrical tape heater with parallel conductors. A semi-conductive self-adjusting matrix is ​​applied to tin-plated copper bars (1.0mm²) consisting of a large number of stranded wires. The heat-releasing element of the heating cable is the matrix itself, which changes the heat release depending on the ambient temperature.

Two layers of internal insulation applied to the fuel matrix provide dielectric resistance, moisture resistance, impact and abrasion resistance, and chemical protection to the fuel matrix. The first layer of internal insulation is made using a unique patented technology by co-extrusion with a matrix onto conductive conductors and forms a single whole with it.

The cable is protected by a wire screen, which provides mechanical protection for the fuel matrix and ensures reliable grounding along the entire length of the cable.

The modified polyolefin outer sheath is chemically resistant, solar radiation resistant and allows the heating cable to be used in humid or corrosive environments.

* The layer is made using a unique patented technology by co-extrusion with a matrix onto conductive wires and forms a single whole with it.

Operating principle

Parallel conductors provide voltage along the entire length of the heating cable, the semi-conductive matrix is ​​a continuous heating element. This design allows you to cut the cable anywhere, excluding the appearance of cold zones. The heating cable acquires self-regulating properties due to the properties of the conductive matrix. As the temperature of the matrix material increases, depending on the ambient temperature and the heat dissipation of the cable, the number of local conductive bonds in the matrix decreases, automatically reducing heat dissipation. As the temperature decreases, the number of local conductive bonds increases, leading to an increase in heat generation. This happens at every point along the length of the cable. Thus, the output power depends on the environmental conditions along the length of the heated pipeline. The ability of self-regulation eliminates the risk of overheating or burnout of the cable when it crosses itself or when the cable passes through the thermal insulation layer.

For use with type C circuit breakers according to IEC 60898-1:2003.

* At the moment when the heating cable is turned on, a current jump occurs (starting current). Within ≈300 seconds after switching on, the current value stabilizes. The maximum starting current can be 4-5 times the rated current for which the circuit breaker is designed.
