Intelligent Heat Trace Controllers

Our iTrace heat trace controllers are highly intelligent and include several unique features. Power limiting manages the inrush current and staggered start directs the power start-up circuits.  All heat trace controllers have NEC required ground fault circuits which integrates ground fault equipment protection and eliminates the need for high cost specialty breakers. They can include main and distribution breakers, preventive diagnostic features and alarms and can even communicate with your existing plant control system through Modbus or Allen-Bradley EtherNet/IP.  You can choose from 10, 20, 30 or 40 circuit panels with many different options of controls. Each heat trace controller is unique and custom made to meet the specifications of your project. You can even include an option with remote monitoring capabilities. If you do not require a new control panel we can offer many retrofit options. All iTrace panels and retrofits are custom built in our UL 508A certified panel shop.
