nVent Brings Smart Connected Solutions to Industrial Heat Tracing with Launch of RAYCHEM Elexant 4010i


nVent Electric plc (NYSE:NVT) ("nVent"), a global leader in electrical
connection and protection solutions, today announced the launch of
nVent's RAYCHEM Elexant 4010i, the first smart, connected controller
from the Elexant family. Designed to provide a safe, reliable and
flexible control solution for industrial applications, the Elexant 4010i
makes the control and maintenance of heat tracing technology smarter,
safer and more cost-effective.

Safe and reliable

In hazardous environments, the Elexant 4010i replaces previous
single-circuit 910 controllers; providing insights into system status
and eliminating manual maintenance checks associated with all types of
heat tracing devices. The Elexant 4010i's internationally standardized
design and approval for use in industrial applications worldwide,
provides a versatile, reliable controller solution that offers
compliance for any business, anywhere. In addition, the new controller
protects people, buildings and equipment with smart limiter and
intrinsically safe (IS) barrier options, and self-testing features.
These innovative capabilities help ensure heat-tracing cables remain
fully operational at all times.

Valuable cost savings

The Elexant 4010i integrates with any process control network to bring
direct, comprehensive reports from the field or electrical room straight
to the maintenance engineer's desk. This flexible connectivity combined
with easy design and installation reduces field commissioning time.
Integrated features, such as built-in ground fault and energy
consumption monitoring, further reduce the cost of ownership and improve
operational efficiency.

Flexible connectivity

Ready for Industry 4.0, the Elexant 4010i brings the power of the
Internet of Things to industrial processes. The new heat-trace
controllers come equipped with multiple communication options (Modbus,
Profibus, Ethernet) for easy integration with existing process control
systems. The intuitive touch screen User Interface (UI) makes it quick
and easy to monitor multiple data points, both locally and
centrally--all in one streamlined dashboard.

"The Elexant 4010i is the first product to be released from this
innovative new line. Soon the reliability, efficiency and connectivity
of the Elexant family will be available for the commercial and
residential sectors as well. We look forward to furthering nVent's
ongoing commitment to developing technology that addresses the safety,
energy efficiency and reliability requirements of our customers today
and tomorrow," said Brad Faulconer, president of nVent's Thermal
