Temperature switches are used in a wide range of industrial and technical applications. The temperature switch opens or closes the associated switch contact when a predetermined temperature is attained. Mechanical or electrical switches might be utilised depending on the requirements.
What is a Temperature Switch?
A temperature switch is a device that monitors and manages the temperature in manufacturing and industrial operations by turning ON and OFF switch contacts when a specific temperature range is reached. This switch is a compact, low-cost option for measuring temperature in space-constrained applications.
What Types of Temperature Switches Are There?
Generally, a distinction is made between mechanical and electronic switches.
1. Mechanical temperature switches: They are classified into two types: bimetal temperature switches and gas-actuated temperature switches.
- Bimetal temperature switch: Bimetal temperature switches have limited precision but are small and cost-effective.
- Gas-actuated temperature switch: Another type is the gas-actuated temperature switch, commonly employed in safety-critical applications.
2. Electronic temperature switch: An electronic temperature switch should be utilised when high accuracy is required. The user can alter the limit value and set many switch points here.
The applications of temperature switches include the following.
- Use in heating systems, boilers, circulation pumps, air heaters, and burners, among other things.
- Useful in various industries, such as pharmaceuticals, automotive engineering, food, etc.
