The Hubbell ETX Electric Tankless Water Heater provides high volume tepid water for safety drench systems with flow rates as high as 40 gpm. The heater contains high powered heating elements that heat water only when there is demand for tepid water. When tepid water is needed, a built in flow sensor measures the exact flow rate, and that data combined with temperature readings at the heater’s inlet and outlet are processed by the electronic temperature controller. This data is continuously transmitted to the temperature controller, which constantly calculates the precise amount of power (kW) needed to achieve the desired temperature. A zero cross over firing signal is sent to the fast acting triacs in order to modulate the heating elements to the precise level needed to meet demand. The Hubbell ETX heater uses only as much power as is needed, while delivering accurate and consistent tepid water temperature.
