Temperature switch as overheating protection for water pumps

When constructing any building, as well as buildings that are already inhabited or in operation, many things must be considered, planned, and maintained.

These include power supply, appropriate fuses, insulation, and water management for washing machines, showers, toilets, and more. Limitor provides switches that support water management and ensure a longer lifespan.

Whether in a private home, office building, restaurant, or department store, every building needs water management. This greatly facilitates the life of every person. Because not only in the bathroom, but also in the kitchen, water is needed for various applications.

The temperature switch P is typically used where a circuit should be interrupted at a certain temperature. This is known, among other things, from many hair dryers, which automatically switch off when they get too hot. If a certain temperature is undershot again, the circuit is closed again and the hair dryer can be switched on again. This is also how it is used in water pumps. It serves as overheating protection in the controlled motor drive in this application.

The temperature switch P is therefore responsible for interrupting the circuit at a certain temperature. If the temperature continues to rise, it can lead to a fire. This is not about the temperature of the water, but about the temperature of the motor of the water pump.

The switch, which is independent of the power supply, is very small and can therefore be installed even in the smallest spaces, has a sealed housing, a short response time, and good heat transfer due to its homogeneous design. The switching temperature can be between 40°C - 150°C.
