MS-2100 Series Heat Trace Controllers

The best in Advanced Control

Nextron’s MS-2100 Series controllers continuously monitor all important heat trace variables: 

  • temperature
  • heater current
  • voltage 
  • ground fault levels 

Detecting and alerting operators of potential problems before they occur avoiding costly frozen pipes or process problems. 

MS-2100 Series controllers log minimum and maximum values and energy usage providing an opportunity for operators to recognize energy savings in the plant.
