|Temperature Range||80 C to 170 C|
The Thermal Protectors / Cut-outs are bimetallic devices which operate at their specified switching temperatures. These devices are normally used for over-temperature protection of small motors, transformers, electronic components etc. Whenever a motor fitted with a thermal protector achieves the switching temperature of the protector, the protector opens and switches off the power supply to the motor. When the motor cools down sufficiently, the protector resets automatically and restores power supply to the motor. Thus the motor is prevented from burning. This holds good for transformers, electronic components too.
The Thermal Protectors / Thermal Cut-outs are available in Normally Closed (NC) and Normally Open (NO) types. These can be embedded in motor / transformer windings or can be fitted on surfaces of Heat Sinks etc.
The temperature range is from 60o C upto 160o C.This low cost product can be used for protection and control in electric motors, transformers, heat sinks, heating pads, welding machines, water heaters and many more applications.
