  1. What is the heating blanket going to be used for?
  2. What heating blanket dimensions do you require for the area you desire to have heated?(Length x Width if rectangular, Diameter or Circumference if band style heater, Diameter if circular heater is desired)
  3. What voltage will you be using? (6 volt single phase to 480 volt three phase)
  4. What wattage will be specified? (total watts or watts per square inch)
  5. Will you need a thermocouple wire attached to the heater? If so, what type and length, and where do you want the tip?
  6. At what temperature will the heating blanket be operated?
  7. Do you wish to have an integrally installed thermostat? (If preset, what temperature?)
  8. Do you need any type of fastening device? (Velcro, grommets, snaps, PSAS, RTV...)
  9. What type of lead wire, what length will be required, and where do you want the exit point on the surface of the blanket?
  10. Do you need an exit tab? (A tab extends off one edge of the blanket to eliminate a bulge on the working surface where the soldered lead wires exit the blanket. A bulge can cause a problem if the blanket is applied under a part that does not have clearance or will be sandwiched between two pieces of material.)
