This article will mainly focus on Electrical Heat Tracing, the choice of many of new installations in both industrial and commercial projects. In 1960, about 95% of heat tracing was steam and in 1995, because of improvements in electrical tracing, that number dropped to between 30% and 40% of new installed tracing.
Reliability RequirementsAn electric Self Regulating Heat Cable is a wire cable that produces heat, also referred to as heat trace cable. Heating cable can be used in a wide range of applications for the home, such as floor heating, heat loss replacement, pipe freeze protection, roof and gutter deicing, and snow melting. There are two different kinds of cables, self-regulating and constant wattage, and both can serve the same purpose, although the application will typically determine the best solution for the job.
Are heat tape, heat cable, and heat trace different?
Before we dive deeper into the differences between self-regulating and constant wattage cable, there is an important clarification that should be made in regard to the heating cable - whether it is self-regulating or constant wattage cable. Serial Electric Floor Heating Cable, specifically in the application of pipe freeze protection and roof and gutter deicing, is commonly referred to as heat tape with the assumption that they are two different types of systems. However, “heat tape” is simply a slang term that has gained wide usage in the industry, but is actually just another term for heat cable. Another common term that is used interchangeably in the specific context of pipe freeze protection is “heat trace”.
When dealing with delicate substances or temperature-sensitive products, companies must take care to take proper temperature control measures in their facilities. Most common people think of temperature control as the simple adjustment of their home thermostat. However, while this does constitute an example of temperature regulation, the world of temperature control is far more complex and involved than one would initially imagine. In order to properly control a facility’s warmth and cooling ranges, temperature control systems are a must for any business or company.
There are several different types of Temperature Control & System. T
Last week, anyone who pre-ordered Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kits began receiving the iPad accessory. The kit—which features one dock-connector adapter with an SD-card slot and a second one with a USB port—is designed to let you transfer your digital camera’s photos to your iPad. But it turns out this accessory has a few other tricks up its metaphorical sleeve that just may make it more appealing to many iPad owners. None of this functionality is officially supported—at least not yet—so caveat emptor if you’re thinking of buying the Kit just to get one or more of these features.
Audio: As Macworld contributor Glenn Fleishman first reported, standard USB-audio accessories—namely, USB headphones, headsets, and speakers—can be used with the iPad via the Camera Connection Kit’s USB adapter. When you plug one of these audio accessories into the adapter’s USB port, all audio is routed through the USB-audio accessory. If you’re using a USB headset, the headset’s microphone also works for audio-recording apps, as well as audio-chat apps such as Skype.
