SmartHeat Vs Arrows

Traditional etched-foil heaters require sensors to ensure the heater reaches its setpoint, and require a controller to manage the heater and maintain a fixed wattage. SmartHeat allows customers to skip this hardware because the patented polymer-based heater’s resistance is dynamic and increases with the temperature of the heater, automatically throttling power as it approaches the setpoint.
