Many applications requiring a fixed temperature set point rely on a mechanical thermostat for thermal control. Thermostats have proven, however, to be inadequate for many applications due to long-term reliability issues, such as 100,000 cycle rating and poor temperature control. The SERIES EHG® thermal solution includes a compact temperature control, thermocouple sensor and power switching device integrated into the heater's power cord. The SERIES EHG temperature control and sensor reduces system costs and lasts substantially longer than a conventional thermostat solution.
The evolution of miniature microprocessor technology and Watlow switching technology fostered development of a small, versatile temperature control and thermocouple sensor that is integrated with Watlow silicone rubber heater products. This device senses the temperature via input from a thermocouple strategically placed on the heater mat. The microprocessor is programmed prior to shipment with an application specific set point. This results in quick delivery of a custom, integrated system.
