Thermon BSX are self-regulating heating cables, designed to provide freeze protection or process temperature maintenance to metallic and nonmetallic piping, tanks and equipment. The BSX self-regulating cables are certified for use in ordinary (nonclassified) areas and in potentially explosive atmospheres in accordance with the ATEX Directive and the IECEx Scheme. BSX heat tracing cable has an operating voltage of 230 VAC and maximum maintenance temperature of 65°C.
