Above 200deg.C, conventional thermal fuses are relatively unreliable, especially if the working temperature is close to the fuse operating temperature. Above 240deg.C they are not even available, so the intelligent solution is to use the PEPI H-8 high temperature thermal fuse.
Using unique bimetal technology, the PEPI H-8 one-shot thermal cut-off can be supplied with calibrations from 250°C to 280°C and happily works up to 20K below its opening temperature without detrimentally affecting the fuse life. Once the PEPI H-8 has tripped it will not reset again even in ambients as low as -35°C.
The H-8 has a switching capacity of 10A/250VAC (or 15A/125VAC) and provides the ultimate in over-temperature protection for home appliances and industrial products. It is approved by C-UL and TüV and is available with a variety of terminal options to suit specific applications.
