Open temperature switches / current switches or time switches (A series)
Type series A switches are based on a complex system consisting of a contact spring unit and a thermo-bimetal snap-disc. When heating up to the fixed switching point, the contact opens, and thus interrupts the power circuit.
They are very flexible to use: Due to the different types of reset, and the adjustable current sensitivity for rapid shutdowns, the A switches offer a very good solution, especially in very specific safety concepts.
Temperature monitor with automatic reset A10: After a certain cooling phase (temp. hysteresis) the contact switches back automatically.
Temperature limiter with a manual reset A20: After opening the contacts, and the subsequent cooling the contacts remain open until a manual reset is performed on the reset pin.
Temperature monitor with electr. self-retaining A30 (230V) / A40 (120V): After opening the contacts the switch is heated by a parallel connected resistor, and thus kept open. The automatic reset is only performed through a mains disconnection, or off-switching of the device in which the temperature monitor is installed.
