Heating Group International heating cables are in fact heating elements. The execution is different, but the principal is the same as with any other heating element;  heating cables have a certain resistance. When current groes through, this is transformed into heat by the friction. The resistance determines the heat transmission (in fact the electric power).

There are different kinds of use of heating cables. The most well known are underfloor heating, ramp and road heating and electric heat tracing.

Especially with heating cables a control is crucial for a good operation. Depending on the application for the cable, Heating Group International is happy to advise you on the best control system.
