Flexible heaters from Watlow are thin, bendable and shaped to fit almost any type of equipment. Heat can be applied to the most complex shapes, geometries, curves and pipes conceivable without sacrificing efficiency or dependability.

Excellent heat transfer results from the heater’s thin design and direct bonding to an application. Flexible heaters provide fast heat-up and cool-down rates, uniform heat distribution and high watt densities.

Product Description

Product Description

The EHG® SL10 is a key component in a powerful system heating element control that integrates a heater, an adjustable set point temperature controller, high/low temperature alert, power switching device and a high temperature safety limit. This agency recognized controller/safety limit meets UL® 1998 and CE 60730 requirements. The optional display/communications module can be easily upgraded and added in the field to provide digital display indication, adjustment of set point, RS485 Modbus® communications and other human machine interface (HMI) features. This system allows you to purchase only what is needed for your application.

The easy to install, compact design, inherent reliability and integrated limit functions make this heating element controller a tremendous value. The controller is designed for easy integration with Watlow® heaters simplifying engineering, reducing component count on new equipment and decreasing cost of ownership. For original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), CE, Semi-S2 compliance and UL® recognition will reduce time and costs necessary for global agency testing and validation.
