2-Stage Energy-Saving Smart Unit Heater w/ Remote

KB Platinum Includes It All. Offering an in-built electronic thermostat for accuracy and remote control for simple operation, as well as an integrated summer fan only mode and thermostat timer mode, the KB Platinum has you covered.

A Warm Worker Is An Efficient Worker.

Fight mother nature with portable electric heat. A study from Cornell University revealed that increasing the working environment temperature to warmer thermal zones can save employers significant money by reducing errors and improving employee focus. When one company increased working temperatures by less than 10°, the productivity gains amounted to saving 12.5% of their wage costs per worker.

Now That’s Smart!

Spiral Steel Fin Heating Element For Maximum Heat Exchange

The metal sheath element is copper brazed with spiral fins then molded into a coil configuration. This combination produces the heat transfer while eliminating the potential for hot spots by positioning the element in the maximum airflow stream.

Engineering Specs

Contractor shall supply and install PKB Series electronic utility heaters manufactured by King Electrical Mfg. Company. Heaters shall be of the wattage and voltage as indicated on the plans.

Construction: All exterior and interior metal enclosure parts are made from 20 gauge electrogalvanized Steel with a rust inhibiting baked enamel finish. Smooth rounded corners and protective edge trim give an attractive modern appearance.

Electronic Control: Up, down temperature mode. Start/Stop. Standard on all heaters. The control voltage is equal to the line voltage (208, 240) for 5kW the line voltage control is operating the contactors.

Adjustable Outlet Louver: Louvers direct air up or down as needed for the heating application.

Rear Intake Screen: Heavy gauge steel screen protects against foreign objects making accidental contact with the rotating fan blade.

Spiral Fin Elements: The metal sheath element is copper brazed with spiral fins then molded into a coil configuration. This combination produces the best heat transfer while eliminating the potential for hot spots by positioning the element in the maximum airflow stream.

Totally Enclosed Fan Motor: Permanently lubricated long life, unit bearing with 20cc of oil. Epoxy-coated motor with enclosed rotor resists moisture and corrosion for long-lasting, trouble-free operation.

Aluminum Fan Blade: Axial flow-type fan mounted directly to the motor shaft for maximum efficiency.

Thermal Overload: Heaters shall be equipped with King’s patented thermal overload Smart Limit Protection®, which disconnects elements and motor in the event normal operating temperatures are exceeded. If thermal overload trips due to abnormal operating temperatures, thermal overload shall remain open until manually reset by turning the heater off for 15 minutes. Automatically reset of thermal overloads, which allow the element to continue to cycle under abnormal conditions, will not be accepted.

Cord Length: 6 Foot SO Cord (No Plug Provided)
