nVent RAYCHEM SBS-xx-SV panel for pipe frost protection systems


Multi-Circuit control panel

The SBS-XX-SV control panel for pipe frost protection systems provides a totally integrated solution for the control of RAYCHEM self-regulating heating cables for frost protection applications. The control panel comprises a line sensing thermostatic control system or ambient sensing control with proportional ambient sensing control (PASC).

Available control devices:

The SBS-xx-SV panels can offer solutions up to12 circuits of frost protection heating cables. The panel also includes electrical circuit protection devices (C-type circuit breakers) and residual current devices for safety and peace of mind.

Key benefits:

Fast connection of multiple circuits directly into the control panel

  • No need for additional connections or junction boxes. 3-12 circuit lengths can be connected to 1 panel.
  • Circuit protection and safety devices integrated into the panel.
  • Complete system from the manufacturer. System and components specifically selected for high performance frost protection system control.

The panels need only be connected to the 400Vac (3 phase) supply.
