Thermal Cut-off (TCO) Opening Temp +184° C, +363° F Operating Current 15A Max
Thermal Cut-offs (also known as Thermal Fuses) are miniature, NON-RESETTABLE temperature sensitive devices designed to prevent appliances and electronic equipment from overheating. NTE thermal cutoffs are UL and CSA listed. Literally thousands of different applications have been devised for thermal-cutoffs, thus providing a large replacement market. Such applications include: hair dryers, refrigerators, battery chargers, irons, hot plates, glue guns, electric motors, window fans, coffee makers, microwave ovens, popcorn poppers, dishwashers and hundreds of others. The TCO (Thermal Cut-Off) responds to temperature by interrupting an electrical circuit when the operating and/or environmental temperature exceeds the thermal rating of the device. This is accomplished when the internal organic pellet experiences a phase change, allowing the spring activated contacts to permanently open the circuit.
