The IntelliTrace CIP Series is a microprocessor-based Control/Monitoring and Power Management system for Ambient Sensing, Line Sensing or a combination of Line and Ambient Sensing Heat Trace Applications and is suitable for use in ordinary areas. The base panels will handle 2 – 48 circuits and may be increased up to 72 circuits with the Extension Panels. A 2 to 4-circuit extension panel may be added to a 6-48 circuit panel but not vice versa. Each circuit has a 40 Amperage capacity and accepts 100 to 480 VAC services. The SCR Control may be set to Automatic, which includes PID or On/Off control, or to Manual, which spans a 0% to 100% control output.

The HMI is a 10” (25 cm) or 7” (17cm) user-friendly touch screen computer. It displays the process variable, temperature setpoint, alarm status, current load, control mode, sensor failure manual override output for any 2 or 6 circuits at a time as well as the alarm status for all other circuits. The standard enclosure is rated for NEMA 4 environments and an optional NEMA 4X 304 SS enclosure is available.

The CIP Control Panel Series provide alarms for high and low temperatures, current load, communications, sensor faults, and ground fault leakage. There are several output/control behavior scenarios for the ground fault (GFEP) alarm condition. Choices include Trip and/or Latch options in which both, either or none may be enabled. Trip sets the output to zero %, while Latch requires a manual reset. Alarm events are automatically logged and stored for easy access. Advanced standard features include a proprietary soft start function, off duty Auto Cycle maintenance program, and either Modbus RTU/ RS485 or Ethernet communications. Optional features include an industry-leading Sensor Mapping** function, remote monitoring, and wireless communications.
