A temperature-dependant resistive element between two parallel copper conductors regulates and limits the power output of the heating tape according to the ambient temperature. If the ambient temperature rises, the power output of the heating tape is reduced. This self-regulating property prevents overheating even when the tapes are overlapped. Thanks to the parallel design the heating tape can be cut to any required length. This feature considerably simplifi es project planning and installation. The heating tape is cut and terminated directly on the construction site according to the circumstances.

The heating system must be designed to ensure that the maximum operating temperature of +120 °C (+250 °F) will not be exceeded when it is energized. When it is switched off, the heating tape can be exposed to a temperature of +200 °C (+392 °F), not more than 1,000 hours cumulated.
