A thermal protector is a device that senses the temperature of an electrical component and disconnects the electrical component from the circuit when it reaches a certain threshold temperature. The purpose of this function is to prevent damage to the electrical component due to overheating. This is especially important in high-power circuits where heat dissipation can be difficult to achieve. The most common application for thermal protectors is in power supplies.
Why Do We Apply Thermal Protectors in the Power Supply?
Here are three main reasons to apply thermal protectors in power supply.
- Detect Over-Temperature Conditions
The power supply circuit can be damaged by over-temperature, and it is necessary to detect the problem quickly so that the device will not be damaged and reduce its service life. Thermal protectors are designed to detect over-temperature conditions and trigger an action when the temperature reaches its limit so that no further damage will take place.
- Keep the Temperature from Rising Enough to Cause Fire
Thermal protectors also act as a safety mechanism for the device in which they are installed. If an overheating condition occurs, the thermal protector will shut off power to the circuit and prevent damage from occurring. The high-temperature rise can cause damage to electronic circuits and even cause a fire if it gets too hot. This kind of situation requires immediate action so as not to cause damage and avoid any possible accidents.
- Automatic Reset after Cooling Down
When the temperature is normal again, the thermal protector automatically resets itself, and the device returns to its original state. This allows you to keep working with confidence even if your device overheats temporarily due to excessive heat generated by heavy workloads or sudden voltage surges.
