These Snap Action thermal protectors operate as a high limit, single operation (non-resettable) type control. The ceramic case isolates allows them to operate at temperatures up to 280°C. As single operation thermostates they perform like a thermal fuse with the reliability of a 100% tested bimetallic thermal control.
•Snap action devices; quick make/quick break switching action.
•Single Operation type devices. Reset temperature is less than -35°C. This prevents the thermostat from resetting under normal operating conditions.
•Unique positioning of the bi-metallic element allows for excellent heat transfer for improved reaction time.
•Available with exposed bi-metallic elements for even faster thermal response.
•Ceramic case isolates devices from the electrical circuit and is suitable for use in high temperature applications.
•Can be mounted directly on a heated surface.
•Preset calibration temperature, not adjustable in the field.
•Opposite end termination allows for flexibility of installation.
•Factory installed lead wires or terminals available, please contact us for available options.
•15 amps / 125V AC (resistive)
•10 amps / 250V AC (resistive)
•Available with nominal calibration temperatures from 250°C to 280°C.
•Almost anywhere ultimate safety is required. Included are curling irons and many other small appliances.
