Help protect the motors, LED displays, electronic control boards, fans and touchpads in your sophisticated appliance designs from damage due to overtemperature, overcurrent and overvoltage with TE Circuit Protection solutions.
PolySwitch LVR devices can be used to protect the AC induction motor of a compressor cooling fan. The device will help prevent damage to AC induction motor caused by overcurrent events.
The PolySwitch resettable device is thermally linked to the the LCD glass. It will “thermally trip” thus reducing the current flowing through the heating element.
Although generally reliable, the electric motors used in home and professional grade appliances are subjected to mechanical overload, overheating, stalls, lost neutral, severe overvoltage humidity and other damaging factors. The latest generation of PolySwitch LVR devices is designed for operation at line voltages of 120 VAC and 240 VAC, and can help appliance designers meet safety and fire hazards requirement.
An LVR device can be used to help protect appliances and avoid damage to the TRIAC during an overload condition.
The 2Pro device, a thermally coupled MOV & PPTC device, can help protect the power supply input against damage caused by overvoltage, overcurrent and overtemperature events.
