The evolution and innovation of Thermocable technology

Revolutionary thinking for thermal cable technology since 1972

Today – Thermocable works closely with many of the world’s leading manufacturers of electric blankets and therapeutic heating pads on improving safety, reliability and functionality of cables and finished heating products.

1972 – Single wound heating cables were launched.

1982 – A thin dual wound heating cable with fusible separation layer for ‘overheat protection’ with an overall diameter of less than 3mm was introduced.

1990 – Negative Temperature Coefficient ‘Heat Sensing’, or (NTC) compound for temperature sensing and ‘hot spot’ detection within an over blanket or throw was introduced.

1992 – Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) characteristics for accurate overall temperature monitoring of blankets and heating pads was introduced.

1996 – NTC and PTC twin temperature monitoring in one wire was introduced.

1997 – Microbore dual heating cable with fusible layer and an overall diameter of less than 2.5mm was launched.

2002 – Total Control Technology with the introduction of PTC/NTC/Fusible/Low EMF Triaxial Cable was launched.

2004 – Low EMF PTC/NTC microbore dual cable was designed and the patent application submitted.

2005 – We applied for patent protection for a method of control for Low EMF/PTC/NTC dual cable.

2007 – Nanobore dual wound heating element with fusible layer with an overall low profile diameter of less than 2mm was introduced.

2008– European Patent was granted for Low EMF/PTC/NTC dual cable design.

2009 – Nanobore triaxial cable offering total control technology with an overall low profile diameter of less than 3mm was introduced.

2010 – A high melt fusible layer for ‘over heat protection’ was launched.

2012 – US Patent was granted for a method of control for Low EMF/PTC/NTC dual cable.
