Elexant 450c Pipe Freeze Protection and Temperature Maintenance System Intelligent Controller
Application

The nVent RAYCHEM Elexant 450c controller is designed for operation with the nVent RAYCHEM heating cables. Non-hazardous locations.

Description

Next generation DIN-mounted touch screen heat tracing controller for dual independent heating zone control with multiple integrated sensing modes (Line and/or PASC) and remote alarm capability for the most energy efficient pipe freeze protection and temperature maintenance control.

The Elexant 450c is EN 60204-1/ EN 61439-1 Compliant and has an ingress rating of IP54. The Elexant can run multiple independent heating circuits in proportional ambient sensing (PASC) and line temperature sensing control with simultaneous operation capability integrated potential volt free alarm. Elexant 450c can be specified within an SBS Trace Heating Panel or alternatively as a stand alone unit, please note the Elexant 450c must be mounted on a DIN Rail.

Electronic thermostat for two heating zones with independent control, two sensor inputs and an alarm relay output for DIN rail mounting in the control enclosure. Temperature range 0–65°C. 4.3" colour touchscreen with dashboard overview of temperatures and error messages.

Features and benefits:

  • Dual heating modes - pipe or ambient temperature controlled.
  • Proportional Ambient Sensing Control (PASC algorithm) for a low energy consumption in ambient sensor mode.
  • Alarm relay to signal power, temperature or communications fault.
  • NTC sensor.
  • Two 4A switching capacity.
  • Monitoring of the pipe temperature, with over and under temperature alarm.
  • Sensor failure alarm.
  • Programmable Fail Safe function in the event of a sensor break, sensor short circuit.
  • Alarm relay to the BMS.
  • Data logging file for system performance monitoring.
  • Keylock.
