CM2 Replacement *

The CM2 Replacement for Nelson CM2 is an economical way to upgrade your existing heat trace controller. With the retirement of Nelson CM2, the parts for these units are no longer available. iTrace can provide a custom subpanel leaving your existing enclosure, conduit and wiring in place. We can also provide a retrofit kit to replace your current CM2 display located on the enclosure door. Let us help you upgrade your old Nelson CM2 with a new CM2 Replacement.

*Note retrofit controllers are available for additional manufacturers.


Panel Communication

View your heat trace system easily by accessing essential information directly on your laptop. This access allows you to check your system and keep an eye out for potential areas that may require preventive maintenance.


The Connection

iTrace heat trace controllers can include the capability of communicating easily through a laptop so you can manage and view your settings throughout your entire trace system.

Our panels can communicate with your centralized control system via Modbus or Allen-Bradley EtherNet/IP.

Enjoy the benefits of viewing a full range of information about the current condition of your heat trace system and avoid any lost product or production resulting from an unanticipated heat trace failure.
