Infrared heating panel TIH 400 S
Elegant, efficient, flexible – and way more than just a heating alternative
Efficient heating procedure with environmentally friendly IR-C radiation
Branded heating panel of the size 705 x 605 mm with a power of 450 W
Unfailingly the flexible and effective infrared heating panel TIH 400 S impresses with cosy warmth in every conceivable application scenario. Whether it is intended to be used for additional selective heating in the living area, as sole heat source in rooms so far without a heating system such as the hobby room in the basement, or for commercial use, e.g. in the catering trade, at cool workplaces in the storage room or even in the area of construction drying and renovation.
For its heating operation the versatile flat heating panel requires nothing more than a power outlet, it is perfectly easy to handle and supplies clean heat – without noises, smells, condensate or the unpleasant circulation of dust. For like the sun the TIH 400 S heating panel generates direct heat by means of infrared radiation, which does not heat the ambient air, but rather all the items in the room (besides persons also walls, ceiling, floor and furniture) which then gradually emit the stored heat into the room.
Amongst other things the infrared heating panel TIH 400 S is perfectly qualified …
… as a heat source in living spaces
The equally elegant and effective infrared flat heating panel TIH 400 S is the perfect solution for additional spot heating. It can be mounted to the wall to save space and creates direct warmth where the residents need it – whether that is in the living area, the camper van, holiday home, conservatory or bathroom.
In addition, the infrared heating panel can be a cost-effective heating alternative when rooms so far without a heating system are to be used for other purposes or as alternative heating solution in old buildings with night storage heaters.
… for the quick drying of wall surfaces
In the area of construction drying and renovation, heating of suitable wall building material by infrared radiation causes a capillary water transport towards the heated wall surface due to the temperature drop. In contrast to diffusion, this process transports distinctly more moisture out of the wall in less time. As soon as the moisture emerges into the room, it diffuses. This is why the drying process can be additionally accelerated by the combined use with Trotec condenser dryers, which maintain the room humidity at an optimal level in a controlled manner.
… for heating workplaces e.g. in storage facilities or workshops
Also when used in draughty or cool workplaces, for example in storage facilities, behind refrigerated counters, in the kiosk, during trade fairs or exhibitions, in church, in workshops, hobby rooms or large halls – whether wall-mounted or positioned on the floor – the infrared spot heating of the TIH 400 S offers great advantages in terms of both heating and finances:
Owing to fibre optics technology, 100 % of the heat reach the workplace, the ambient air does not have any effect on the heating capacity and unmanned halls do not have to be heated in a costly manner.
… as a heating device to be used in the catering trade
The infrared heating panel TIH 400 S is much more effective than conventional radiant gas heaters – whether wall-mounted or positioned on the floor – it is an ideal solution for selectively heating stalls and terrace areas or even outdoor smoking areas.
A few practical benefits:
- Up to 450W of pure heating capacity
- Efficient heating procedure with environmentally friendly IR-C radiation
- Heat transport via light waves – direct object heating without convective loss
- Maximum efficiency: 100 % of the electrical energy input is converted into heat output
- Clean warmth – no noise, no odour, no condensate, no oxygen consumption, no unpleasant dust circulation
- Integrated suspension device for mounting on a wall or on assembly supports
- Can also be positioned on the floor
- Ready for immediate use – no additional installations or expensive modifications required
TIH 400 S – effective warmth due to sunlike infrared radiation power
Behind the timelessly elegant heating side with a white, powder-coated metal surface in an anodized aluminium frame, there is a sophisticated construction allowing for multiple set-up variants.
A suspension device integrated on the rear makes horizontal and vertical wall mounting mere child's play, optional feet  allow for ground installation, and the fastening clamps  available as accessories enable mounting on customary assembly supports.
|Calculation of power requirements for rooms with ceiling heights of up to 2.5 m||Insulation quality of the rooms|
|good to very good||medium||not insulated/old building|
|1 outer wall||50 W/m²||70 W/m²||90 W/m²|
|for each additional outer wall||+10 W/m²||+10 W/m²||+10 W/m²|
|The required infrared heating power is calculated as follows: room size in m² x W/m² = required heating power in watts. Sample calculation: For a room of 10 m² with very good insulation quality and two outer walls (50 W/m² + 10 W/m²), the recommended power requirements are 10 m² x 60 W/m² = 600 W.|
Optimum room temperature control with the socket thermostat BN30
Just install it in the socket and connect it to the heating or cooling device on the socket thermostat BN30, and you can have your heating or cooling unit automatically switched on and off by the BN30 depending on the temperature. The socket thermostat available as an accessory is individually adjustable within a temperature range from 5 °C to 30 °C.
Radio thermostat BN35 with timer switch for the socket
With the radio thermostat BN35 you can easily determine at which room temperature your heating or cooling unit will switch on or off using the remote control. The BN35 set consists of a radio-controlled socket and a radio thermostat. Simply plug the radio-controlled socket in between a wall outlet and your heating or cooling unit. Place the radio thermostat within approx. 20 metres in the place where the room temperature is to be measured. As an alternative, time-controlled regulation can also be carried out.
This is how infrared heating works in interior spaces
Infrared rays cannot heat up the room air directly but they heat up all objects inside the room, which will then permanently emit the stored thermal energy into the room, similar to a tiled stove.
In contrast to classical convection heatings, this indirect heating method thus warms up objects instead of directly warming up the room air. The latter cannot, in principle, store the warmth itself, but can only transport them to objects, which entails high energy losses on the one hand and, on the other hand, causes dust circulation which can be completely avoided when using an infrared heating.
