  • Hold down the red TEST/RESET pushbutton for approximately ten seconds.

      - After the first five seconds the unit will go into Manual Mode, energizing the heater cable if it is not all ready energized.

      – After the second five seconds the unit will enter the LOW TEMP blue LED edit mode. This is indicated by the blue LED flashing rapidly. Release the button at this point. (The unit will exit Manual Mode.). 

          Note: The blue LED may flash for a couple of seconds after releasing the red TEST/RESET pushbutton.

          • The blue LED will indicate whether the LOW TEMP Alarm is currently disabled or not.

                – If the blue LED remains on the LOW TEMP Alarm is currently enabled.

                – If the blue LED goes off the LOW TEMP Alarm is currently disabled.

                – To keep the setting as it is wait five seconds and the unit will resume normal operation.

                – To change this setting press the red TEST/RESET pushbutton within five seconds. The new status of this setting will show for three seconds before the unit resumes normal operation.

                     Note: The blue LED will flash rapidly before exiting the LOW TEMP blue LED editing mode and resuming normal operation.

          • POWER indicator – This green LED lit solid indicates that the FPT 130 (PT Economy) is receiving power.

                – Blinking indicates a calibration error.

          • HEAT indicator – This yellow LED lit solid indicates when the heater is energized.

                – Blinking asymmetric (1/2 sec off × 1–1/2 sec on) : Low Current Alarm, heater relay closed.

                – Blinking asymmetric (1/2 sec on × 1–1/2 sec off) : Low Current Alarm, heater relay open.

                – Blinking fast : Stuck relay.

          • LOW TEMP indicator – This blue LED lit solid indicates when the temperature falls to 32 °F (0 °C) for all set-points except the 30 °F (-1.1 °C) set-point. For the 30 °F (-1.1 °C) set-point the LOW TEMP alarm will indicate when the temperature drops to 28 °F (-2.2 °C).

                – Blinking indicates sensor fault.

                – Blinking fast indicates High Temperature alarm.

          • ALARM indicator – This red LED lit solid indicates when there is a high ground fault current.

                – Blinking indicates a GFEP circuit failure (this light will also blink while system is performing a self–test).

          Do not wrap self regulating cable around the pipe in a coiled or spiral fashion, and do not use electric tape to attach it. WarmlyYours recommends attaching the cable in a straight run and to use aluminum or fiberglass tape, pipe straps, or plastic zip ties to attach the cable. Then cover the assembly with fire-resistant insulation and assure it is waterproof. Place electrical heating cable WARNING labels every 10‘, and where the label will be clearly visible.

          Never spiral heating cable around pipes. Attach self regulating cable in straight runs at the 8 o'clock position, or if two runs are required (pipes greater than 12“ diameter) attach the cable at the 8 o'clock and the 4 o'clock positions. Please refer to the installation manual for further information.

          WarmlyYours offers a conversion kit (SR-PLUG-KIT) to enable a plug-in requirement. This kit includes ground fault equipment protection (GFEP). The receptacle must be 120V, grounded, and approved for wet locations if located outside. The self regulating cable must not exceed 140‘ in length.

          No. Only install pipe heat (heat trace cable) in accessible locations. Do not install this self regulating cable in walls or any place where the cable is hidden. Do not run it through walls, ceilings, or floors. The cable must be installed 10“ away from combustible surfaces, such as wood, and it should not be embedded in insulation or roofing material.

          WarmlyYours does not recommend using an extension cord for permanent installations. Pipe heat should always be plugged directly into a receptacle or hardwired to the circuit that is powering it.
