SWITCHES, THERMOSTATIC, (METALLIC AND BIMETALLIC), GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR
|Publication Date:||5 April 2006|
This specification covers the general requirements for metallic-element actuated, thermostatic switches intended primarily for use in electrical and electronic equipment, in alternating current (ac) and direct current (dc) applications, where temperature protection, overheat detection, or accurate temperature control is required. The operating temperatures and operating temperature ranges of switches are covered by this specification (see 3.1 and 6.2.2).
Switches covered by this specification are intended for use in low power dc applications. Also, these switches are intended for use on printed circuit boards, and leads may be soldered or inserted... View More
Switches covered by this specification are intended for use in low power dc applications. Also, these switches are intended for use on printed circuit boards, and leads may be soldered or inserted in plug-in sockets. When switches and plug-in sockets are used together, they should have similar or compatible contact finishes. These switches military unique due to the fact that these devices must be able to operate satisfactorily in military systems under the following demanding conditions: 15 gs of vibration, up to 500 gs of shock. In addition these military requirements are verified under a qualification system. Commercial components are not designed to withstand these military environmental conditions.View Less
