The JBS-100 kit is designed to connect power to a single Raychem brand BTV, QTVR, XTV, KTV, or VPL heating cable. It is approved by FM, CSA, PTB and IEx for use in hazardous locations.
The JBS-100 integrates the functions of connection kits and insulation entries. The rugged stand protects the heating cable and allows for up to four inches (100 mm) of thermal insulation.
The cold-applied core sealer does not require a heat gun or torch for installation, so no hot work permit is necessary. The silicone-free, noncuring sealant allows easy installation and re-entry for maintenance.
Innovative spring clamp terminals provide fast installation and safe, reliable, maintenance-free operation.
Compared with other systems, this connection kit significantly reduces installation time. The kit is offered in three versions, customized for local installation practices, and is also available with a plug-in LED light (-L) that indicates when power is supplied to the heating cable circuit.
The kit contains all the necessary materials for a complete installation except for one pipe strap, which must be ordered separately.
