About the Product

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.
