Thermal Links Functions and Applications


A thermal fuse functions by providing overheat protection for electrical products such as home appliances, battery packs, motors, power supplies, transformers, heating and air-conditioning equipment and various electronic devices. A thermal cutoff (TCO) is designed into electrical circuits to cutoff the electrical power in the circuit in case of overheating, either as a backup in series to a thermostat or on their own. Thermal cut-offs are used to prevent uncontrolled overheating.
