The HTWC Series tape consists of a flexible heating strip 1' wide and of varying lengths with a permanently incorporated temperature controller. Standard tapes are available for either 120 or 240 volt operation and develop 72 watts per lineal foot. These tapes are completely safe when operated according to directions, and with reasonable care, will give long service.
This economical semi-automatically controlled heating tape has been developed by OMEGALUX™ for use in small scale heating applications.
CAUTION AND WARNING! Fire and electrical shock may result if products are used improperly or installed or used by non-qualified personnel. See inside back cover for additional warnings.

Heat Tape ExperienceThe HTWC that I have doesn't regulate the wattage by percentage. My unit doesn't activate any wattage until I pass the 85-90% mark at which point it gives full power to the tape. In order to regulate the heat, I then have to turn the dial back to about the 50% mark before the power cuts out on the tape. The only way to regulate the tape temperature is to tediously sit and toggle the unit on and off frequently. If you are looking for a regulated heat tape I would not recommend this product.

Arrived BrokenThis showed up non-functioning after purchasing 2 day shipping. I could hear something rattling around in the controller. Turns out there was a set screw that had fallen out of one of the controller components, and I was able to repair it myself since I needed it rapidly. Works well now.
