The snap action KSD thermostat Is a kind quick switch thermostat, it is also a bimetallic mechanical thermostat, which works through the thermal expansion and contraction of the bimetallic disc. At a set temperature, the bimetallic disc "catches" from the convex shape to the concave shape. When the disc "pops", it either completes the circuit or interrupts the circuit. There are many practical applications of dish temperature controller. They are used for heating and cooling applications to ensure that the process temperature does not exceed the thermal limits of the equipment or process. In some cases, spring leaf thermostats with close differential models can be used as the main temperature control device. However, the most common application of quick switch or snap action thermostat is as over temperature protection (or OTP) fault protection.
Technical parameters for snap action KSD bimetal thermostat:
Rated current(Ir): 10A 15A 16A;
(1) stable performance
water heaters, home appliances, power generators
Due to its small size and low quality, the response time of the snap action KSD thermostat design is very fast compared with other commercial thermostatic devices. In addition, the bimetallic element of the spring leaf does not carry current, but acts as a force to open and close contacts. As a result, quick acting thermostats have a long service life (up to 16 amperes for the half inch series) at relatively high currents, making fast switching the preferred choice for many OEMs.
Jaye industry make Various type of Snap action KSD bimetal thermostats. And the body material have the Bakelite and ceramic material, the temperature and angle of terminal can be custom made.
