These thermal cutouts operate by means of a thermally sensitive bimetal snap-element which switches a double electrical contact when reaching a pre-set response temperature. They can be normally open or normally closed. The electrical current being switched flows through the bimetal element, which therefore gives a combination of temperature and current – sensitivity.
These thermal protectors operate by means of a thermally sensitive snap action bimetal which switches open a single pole/single throw electrical contact upon reaching a factory calibrated response temperature. Heat transfer occurs on all sides via conduction, convection or radiation. The bimetal disc snaps closed once the reset temperature has been reached.
THE F11-E06 IS NOW F20-E06
The Cantherm F20-E06 Encapsulated Thermostat for Electronics is now available with die cut PCB leads. JEDEC TO-220 critical dimensions, such as lead spacing, lead to back plane and board to mounting hole, have been respected to insure interchangeability. They will be shipped in 50 piece plastic tube magazines for ease of handling and loading for automatic insertion. Because of the plastic TO-220 style housing high voltage and high temperature applications (4000 VAC dielectric @ 200°C) can be achieved. The RYTON PPS plastic is UL94 V-0 approved and withstands long-term exposure to 220°C. Available with N/C or N/O contacts, PC mounting pins or flying leads in temperatures from 70°C to 160°C, the F20-E06 is suitable for most applications. Its small size and 3 amp current rating makes them ideal for today’s smaller higher watt density designs.
