The CTS electronic thermostat is a microprocessor based temperature control and power connection kit. It is used for freeze protection or process temperature maintenance of pipes or tanks protected by heat tracing products. This thermostat can be used with CZH, CMi or CPR heating cables in Ordinary area locations.
This unit is designed to provide local temperature control and monitoring for heat traced pipes or tanks across a variety of industries and applications and will switch 30 amperes of current.
The CTS provides easy programming of the temperature set point, high and low temperature alarms, the deadband, the temperature units, the soft start function and the alarm state through the front panel push buttons. LED lights are provided for indication of power to the unit, heater power on (load) and alarm status. A Fail Safe solid state alarm is included for wiring to your building management system to indicate alarm status. This alarm may be set to open or close on all alarm conditions including loss of power, high or low temperature alarm and RTD failure. Choose either the DC or the AC customer supplied voltage alarm variation. The minimum operating ambient temperature is -40°F (-40°C). This unit has programmable high and low temperature alarm set points from -80°F (-62°C) to 1150°F (621°C).
The CTS employs a Soft Start feature that uses a proprietary software algorithm which reduces the inherent self-regulating in-rush current, resulting in less nuisance tripping at cold temperatures. For added flexibility, the user may disable the soft start feature.
A 100 Ohm platinum RTD is provided with a 3 foot (1 M) lead resulting in flexible mounting options for the user.
