The PLM-Series polyimide flexible heaters are offered in a variety of sizes and watt densities. These flexible heaters are polyimide insulated with a polyimide strain relief designed to be used in various environments and hard to reach places. They feature a non-magnetic heating element and watt densities of 2.5 W/in2, 5 W/in2 or 10 W/in2.
PLM-Series heaters have a thickness of 0.01 for a low profile wherever they are installed. Self-adhesive options available for easy and simple installation and eliminate the need for clamping. Temperature ranges from -40°C (-40°F) to 149°C (300°F) for self-adhesive models and -57°C (-71°F) to 232°C (450°F) for no adhesive models.
The PLM-Series heaters are made of polyimide for increased flexibility for curved surfaces and chemical resistivity. The thin nature of these heaters makes them ideal for tight spaces and good for applications such as hot plates, airplanes, storage tanks, beakers, trays, drying chambers and more.
Can you tell me the type of metal (copper, other allow) that is used for the heater traces inside? Thank you.

The operation voltage is 28V DC, what is the operating current?
Asked by: redneck123
Thank you for the inquiry. To calculate current we have a couple steps;
Need the total watts of your heater. Heaters are normally rated in watts/ sqin and voltage.
To calculate total power. Calculate the area of your heater and multiply the area x watts/sqin.
Next use power law to calculate the current. Power = Voltage x Current
From this; Current = Power / voltage
Hope this is helpful.

Is the plm series able to handle outgassing?
Asked by: why1
Omega does not specify the outgassing on these Heaters though Polyimide has very low levels. The PLM series is generally used in atmosphere applications.

Can I run this on 28VDC instead of 28VAC? I assume that it rectifies the VAC signal to VDC anyway.
Asked by: EE79
Thank you for your inquiry. You may use DC Voltage.
