SafeHeat

Safe, self-limiting heating system

SafeHeat is a self-limiting heating system that uses Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) resistance ink.

Due to the fact that PTC technology increases resistance at higher temperatures, it’s considered failsafe with regards to overheating. It also doesn’t need an electronic control unit (ECU) or thermostat.

As SafeHeat needs less power to meet the time-to-temperature threshold, it has the following benefits:

  • An overall reduction in vehicle power consumption
  • A potential reduction on cost and weight (e.g. smaller alternator, battery, cable diameter etc.)
  • Energy savings during the first 10 – 15 minutes of the journey and during frequent short trips
  • An increase in range for electronic vehicles in a typical city environment

SafeHeat is available for a variety of applications:

  • Seat heating
  • Interior heating, including armrest heaters for door panels and middle consoles
  • Technical heating for batteries, vehicle tanks, and air conditioning
