TraceNet™ Genesis Control and Monitoring System
Process heating, including electrical heat trace systems, has advanced significantly in recent years. Having the tools to monitor individual heat trace circuit performance to the point of predicting (and perhaps preventing) challenges facing critical process lines and instrumentation is here, and it’s called: TraceNet Genesis. Control and monitoring systems can play an essential role in heat tracing applications which range from freeze protecting water lines to maintaining elevated process temperatures. While mechanical thermostats have been used successfully for many heat tracing applications, a more complete control and monitoring solution can be necessary for critical heat tracing applications. Advancements in technology have made electronic control and monitoring units both cost effective and more reliable. These systems conserve energy, extend system life, and ensure accurate temperatures are maintained, for reduced operating cost and increased plant reliability.
