A typical scheme is a combination of heating cable, junction boxes and termination kits.

To operate the system with minimum power consumption a Sensaire ambient sensing temperature control is recommended; this should be set to activate the system at 5 degC.

It is possible to run several heating circuits from a single power supply point, and with Tee connections and loops, the most complex pipe system can be trace heated.
