A new line of economical thermal controls includes Valstat™ Series thermal controls, combining limited design options with a stocking program to offer a cost-effective solution. Three Valstat products are snap-action devices with bimetallic elements to break an electrical circuit. The devices automatically reset and are designed to provide reliable operation in inductive applications such as motors, transformers and lighting fixtures.
New Model J(C) Valstat Series thermal protectors feature a fold-over case design and snap-action, quick-break/quick-make switching action. The bimetallic element carries the circuit current for maximum sensitivity under short circuit conditions. The line also includes the FC-M1D Series with a drawn metal case and the Model FC-P2D Series with a heat-resistant plastic case. Portage Electric Products, Inc., www.pepiusa.com
