Wiring Specifications:

High temperature 842°F (450°C) MG or similar style wire (with a suitable temperature and amperage rating) should be used for all electrical connections made within the terminal area of the infrared panel. The high temperature wire must be run on top of (or above) the ceramic fiber insulation.
Ceramic terminal blocks are recommended to allow for quick emitter replacement, flexibility in zoning, and "touch safe" design.
The terminal cover for the infrared panel should be louvered or made out of expanded metal to minimize the temperature within the terminal area.

Emitter Spacing:

        The spacing of the emitters should be such that the resulting infrared emissions incident on the target will be even and maximized.

Emitters that are tightly spaced in an array will allow the target to be positioned close to the emitters and still result in even heating. The intensity and efficiency of the infrared radiation will be maximized and heat losses will be minimized.
Emitters that are loosely spaced in an array will force the target to be positioned further away in order to achieve even heating. This style of panel would typically result in a lower intensity infrared emission.

For more information about emitter mounting, using our two piece mounting clip design and warnings see our emitter mounting page.
