  • Glossary of Terms for Thermal Control and Protection
    terminal switch possessing both Normally Open and a Normally Closed contact configurations. S.P.S.T. (Single Pole/Single Throw): A switch with a single set of terminals and a single set of contacts. Thermal Cutoff Fuse: A device that melts its internal element to open a circuit in an over-temperature
  • Motor Protectors & Thermal Breakers & Thermistors
    Motors should have protection for themselves, the branch circuit, and the feeder line. Other protection, provided by fuses and circuit breakers, guards against fault conditions caused by short circuits or grounds and overcurrents exceeding locked-rotor values.

  • Self-Protecting Starters
    protects against both thermal and magnetic overload. The self-protected starter can be used in single or multiple installations and satisfy Article 430 of the National Electric Code (NEC) which addresses the safe installation of motors, circuits, and controllers. Power-control equipment comprises motor
  • Etched-foil elements provide significant advantages in sensitive applications
    . Thermal Circuits final recommendation was to incorporate a thermal fuse as a fail-safe measure to enable U.L. recognition of the hybridization oven. This added feature protects the entire hybridization oven should any other component, such as the fan or temperature-controlling system, fail or should

    , but there is no need to oversize a thermal or thermal-magnetic circuit breaker. Unlike a fuse rating, a circuit breaker rating indicates the maximum current that the circuit breaker will consistently maintain in ambient room temperature. Thus, a 10-A circuit breaker will maintain a 10-A current without
