Caliente is a manufacturer of heating elements and systems for the outdoor enclosure, cabinet and battery backup markets
Caliente is the innovator of patent pending flexible silicone pad heaters incorporating printed thick film technology, and specialize in thermally and cost efficient designs for our customers.
Caliente's thick film elements pad/mat style elements require less labor, material and process time than comparable elements made with wire or etched foil. Our forced convection heaters take advantage of self regulating PTC technology to offer low profile and cost effective package for heating your entire cabinet.
Caliente measures the success of our business strategies by how competitive our customers are in the marketplace. We are committed to offering you high quality, cost effective elements with exceptional service and delivery. That is the price and performance advantage.
Outdoor disposed cabinets/enclosures are subjected in certain areas to subzero temperature. Many components will not operate at such temperature. To start up an idle system at subzero temperature the critical components has to be warmed up to the minimal operating temperature.
The heating up the ambient is performed by cabinet / enclosure heaters. These heaters are either in the form of flexible foil upon which a resistive electric circuit is printed which serves as a flat / large area heating resistor. The foil is adhered to the cabinet wall or to any other suitable surface and is pre-activated when the system to be warmed is activated. It shuts down when the temperature within the cabinet reaches a specific level which activates the whole system into operation.
Another configuration of the heater is a large resistor(s) mounted within a protective envelop which warm up the air either by natural convection or fan aided forced convection.
Caliente is a manufacturer of such heating elements and systems for outdoor cabinets, enclosures and kiosks. Caliente offers complementary pad/mat style heaters for spot heating, and forced convection heaters for heating an entire enclosure and its contents.
Caliente is also the innovator of flexible silicone pad heaters incorporating printed thick film technology, and specializes in cost effective and thermally efficient designs for heating batteries, LCD displays, and cold starts of electronics.
