Self-limiting cables​


Self-limiting heating cables are designed with a temperature dependent resistant element between two parallel copper bus wires. When the bus wires are connected to the mains, a current goes through the temperature dependent resistant element which will then heat. As the element is heated, the resistance value rises causing the current to decline and heating is reduced. This explains the self-limiting effect.​
