Portage Electric is offering a new addition to the Valstat Series™ of thermal controls. The new series is a line of self-hold thermal protectors designed as a cost effective solution for thermal protection of motor, transformer, lighting, and appliance applications
In a fault condition, the Model JSC opens the electrical circuit and an integrated heat source prevents the thermal protector from re-closing until the power source is removed and the unit is allowed to cool. The thermal protector then resets allowing continued operation. Self-hold devices allow for the functionality of automatic reset devices with additional safety enhancements.
