Heater Material

The PLM-Series polyimide flexible heaters are offered in a variety of sizes and watt densities. These flexible heaters are polyimide insulated with a polyimide strain relief designed to be used in various environments and hard to reach places. They feature a non-magnetic heating element and watt densities of 2.5 W/in2, 5 W/in2 or 10 W/in2.

PLM-Series heaters have a thickness of 0.01 for a low profile wherever they are installed. Self-adhesive options available for easy and simple installation and eliminate the need for clamping. Temperature ranges from -40°C (-40°F) to 149°C (300°F) for self-adhesive models and -57°C (-71°F) to 232°C (450°F) for no adhesive models.

The PLM-Series heaters are made of polyimide for increased flexibility for curved surfaces and chemical resistivity. The thin nature of these heaters makes them ideal for tight spaces and good for applications such as hot plates, airplanes, storage tanks, beakers, trays, drying chambers and more.

For the Low Voltage polyimide heaters, can the supply voltage exceed the Omega stated 28V? For example, supply at 35V instead?

Asked by: AdAstra
The supply Voltage range is +/- 10% of 28 VDC and exceeding this may cause damage to the Heater.
