Online configurator tool helps find the right heater
Heater Configurator
Heater configurator engineering tool helps customers specify, evaluate, select and order Thermofoil and wire-wound flexible heaters online. The configurator functions like a search engine, allowing customers to configure, price, and order heaters by entering a model number or searching for by dimensional value and insulation type. It generates catalog flexible heater options in polyimide, silicone rubber, optically clear, integrated heater/sensor, and mica substrate. Once a specific model is selected the customer can enter supply voltage and operating temperature requirements, and choose between different resistance values and backing/adhesive options. The tool automatically checks to make sure the heaters -- and all selected options like resistance, backing, lead-wire -- work properly at the given voltage and operating temperature. Data boxes appear in red to indicate when the heater is not suited to perform as configured for the application values given.
