Electromechanical on/off switches that are thermally triggered are known as thermal switches. Thermal switches are reusable in comparison to thermal fuses. They work well as protection against typical transient thermal conditions that the user can rectify. A thermal switch is triggered by a difference in temperature.
The switch’s state changes when it is activated, going from usually open to normally closed or vice versa. As they stop the flow of power to an electrical circuit, the movement of the contacts can produce a very weak audible noise.
GLOBAL THERMAL SWITCH MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
The Global Thermal Switch market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH
A new reflowable thermal switch was introduced by SCHURTER. Power transistors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, TRIACs, SCRs, and others can overheat and experience thermal runaway due to their innately self-reinforcing heat-producing behaviour.
The RTS is intended to guard against such overheating by exactly interrupting the circuit with reliability at a set temperature. With temperature profiles up to 260 degrees Celsius, the new RTS from SCHURTER can be installed using standard reflow soldering procedures. By pressing the top into position after the soldering process, the RTS is mechanically activated and armed to trip at 210 degrees Celsius.
When several devices are activated simultaneously, it can be done either directly or automatically.In contrast to devices that require an extra contact for electrical activation, the installer can see the RTS’s state right away and in plain sight. Additionally, the requirement for a second communication is removed.
The RTS is housed in a remarkable small package measuring 6.6 x 8.8 mm in dimension, and it is capable of withstanding operating currents up to 100 A at rated voltages of up to 60 VDC.
AEC-Q200 and MIL-high STD’s dependability standards are met by it. Versions customised for each customer are offered. Integrated shunt or overcurrent protection are additional features that take up less room on the printed circuit board.
