TE Connectivity devices offer protection for sensitive industrial controls to help prevent damage from shorts, overheating and component failures that can occur by pinched cables or incorrectly installed cables and connectors.
A PolySwitch resettable device can be thermally linked to the the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) glass. It will “thermally trip” thus reducing the current flowing through the heating element. If the control circuitry fails to turn off the element, the current flowing through the heating element can increase and lead to thermal runaway.
Electromagnetic loads can be susceptible to may problems. Incorrect use of solenoids, valves, and motors can lead to device failure and circuit damage. A PolySwitch device can be used to help prevent damage from such faults.
Eectric motors in industrial setting can be 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.
PolySwitch devices help protect against overcurrent and overtemperature fault conditions by limiting the flow of current in the DC input power circuit.
Transformers in industrial applications are subject to failures from overcurrent conditions. Using a PolySwitch Line Voltage Rated (LVR) device will help protect your device from these faults.
To meet UL standards UPS' needs overcurrent protection. To add further reliabilty to the product design engineers need to be concerned about transient voltage events that may disrupt the internal circuitry.
