RTBC is a line-sensing thermostat which
is generally used for process temperature
maintenance applications in ordinary (nonhazardous)
areas. The thermostat is mounted
within the enclosure and the capillary is
brought out through one of the openings in
the bottom of the box. This design provides
extra protection for the capillary, especially
when the control is mounted on a pipe, for
heat tracing applications. The three foot long
stainless steel capillary provides good flexibility
in mounting locations.
RTBC-EP is a modified version of the RTBC
which utilizes a hermetically sealed switch.
Since this switch has no arcing contacts it
can be used in Division 2 Hazardous Areas.
