Clearview Transparent Heater

The Clearview Transparent heater allows continuous high definition operation of device monitors in low temperature environments. Optically clear heaters are typically used in applications that require a high degree of light transmission.

  • High efficiency
  • Quick thermal response
  • Minimal power consumption
  • High design flexibility
  • Manufactured in class 10000 clean room

Overview

Clearview is an optically clear variation of our wire-wound heater that provides superior light transfer with higher durability than comparable technologies. 

The wire-wound design brings high heating efficiency and quick thermal response with minimal power consumption. This makes Clearview ideal for applications such as computers, battery powered hand scanners, and touch screens.

Optically clear heaters are typically used in applications that require a high degree of light transmission. Clearview's ultra-fine wire construction gives high optical clarity and ensures optimal light transmission for scanning and imaging applications.

Clearview provides controlled, direct heat to displays, lenses and clear panels, allowing continuous high definition operation of device monitors in low temperature environments. Displays and touch screens remain usable in cold, high humidity/low dew point environments and locations where ambient temperature can change quickly.
