Line Sensing Heat Tracing Control Panel Class I, Div. 2, 2-72 Loops - ITLSC1D2 2-48
The HMI is a 10” (25.4 cm) 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 loops at a time as well as the alarm status for all other loops. The standard enclosure is rated for NEMA 4 environments and an optional NEMA 4X 304 SS enclosure is available.
The ITASC1D2 / ITLSC1D2 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.

Soft Start Feature
Certain heating cables exhibit inherent current inrush in colder temperatures. This inrush can cause nuisance breaker tripping. To limit inrush current on the overall system, a proprietary Soft Start algorithm is applied during system start-up. This will ONLY occur while the operation mode is set to AUTO. After the Soft Start program completes its cycle, the Control Mode of the system will either be PID or ON/OFF Control Mode, depending what was selected by the user. The default setting of the Soft Start Feature for each circuit is “enabled”. However, the Soft Start Feature may be disabled if so desired by the owner. The owner has the option to independently manage the Soft Start Feature on each circuit.
Auto Cycle Feature
During prolonged down time periods, typically during the summer months, it advisable to intermittently exercise the system circuits. This exercising of the loops is accomplished via the Autocycle feature. On a sequential circuit basis, the Autocycle feature periodically monitors system performance between 1-999 hours. This provides a certain level of predictive maintenance of the system as Faults (Alarms) will present themselves accordingly. Problem areas may be addressed during non-essential operating periods. The owner has the option to engage or disengage the Autocycle feature at any time.
The ITLS & ITLSC1D2 Models provide the owner with customizable Sensor Mapping. This becomes a very powerful and desirable feature when the owner needs added flexibility in controlling the circuit outputs beyond the standard single sensor input.
