New Product on Our Website: ETI FPT & GPT Point Microprocessor-Based Heat-Trace Control Thermostat with GFEP

This past July Environmental Technology released its new line of microprocessor-based heat-trace controls, replacing its already successful SST line which has been a trusted industry standard since 2011. The new GPT and FPT heat-trace controls were created with input from leaders in the heat-trace industry to best fit their present and future needs.

Environmental Technology was founded in 1968 and is internationally recognized for their work in heat-trace, snow & ice melt and waveguide dehydrators. In 2015 the company founder and lead engineer Thaddeus Jones stepped down from day to day activity, leaving new products and engineering to the next generation of ETI leadership. The GPT and FPT line of heat-trace is the first major release under the new leadership.

The previous SST line of heat-trace has been well trusted and can be found on many prominent structures throughout North America where they will function properly for years to come. Environmental Technology will be discontinuing the SST line in late 2017 to make way for their new GPT and FPT heat-trace controls.

The GPT 130 is a single-point microprocessor-based general purpose heat-trace control with a temperature setpoint range of -99.9 °F to 999 °F (-73.3 °C to 537.7 °C) and advanced monitoring and alarms. It is designed for applications which require Ground–Fault Equipment Protection (GFEP). Ideal uses include freeze protection, hot water temperature maintenance, grease line trace, tank heating, and other temperature monitoring and control applications. The GPT 130 and its heater load can operate with an available line voltage source of 100 – 277 V ac. The controller and heater load share the same supply connection. The internal load contactor is rated to switch up to 30 A resistive. The Integral GFEP provides safety in compliance with national and local electrical codes. The unit’s housing is a NEMA 4X IP66 weather–resistant enclosure for enhanced durability.

The FPT 130 is a is a single-point microprocessor-based freeze protection heat-trace control with temperature setpoints of 30 °F, 38 °F, 45 °F, and 50 °F (-1.1 °C, 3.3 °C, 7.2 °C and 10 °C). It is designed for applications which require Ground–Fault Equipment Protection (GFEP). Ideal uses include freeze protection, and other temperature monitoring and control applications. The FPT 130 and its heater load can be powered with an available line voltage source of 100 – 277 V ac. The controller and heater load share the same supply connection. The internal load contactor is rated to switch up to 30 A resistive. The Integral GFEP provides safety in compliance with national and local electrical codes. The unit’s housing is a NEMA 4X IP66 weather–resistant enclosure for enhanced durability.

The GPT 230 is a dual-point microprocessor-based freeze protection heat-trace control that can control two channels with temperature setpoint ranges of -99.9 °F to 999 °F (-73.3 °C to 537.7 °C) and advanced monitoring and alarms. It is designed for applications which require two independent heater–control Channels with Ground–Fault Equipment Protection (GFEP). Ideal uses include freeze protection, hot water temperature maintenance, grease line trace, tank heating, and other temperature monitoring and control applications. The GPT 230 and its heater load can be powered with an available line voltage source of 100 – 277 V ac. The controller and heater load are powered from the same supply connection. The two internal load contactors are rated to switch up to 30 A resistive. The adjustable GFEP function provides additional safety and compliance with national and local electrical codes. The unit’s housing is a NEMA 4X IP66 weather–resistant enclosure for enhanced durability.

This new line of heat-trace controls will be the industry standard by providing reliable temperature control and comprehensive monitoring and alarms. Please visit networketi.com for more information about this or any of our other products.
