Thermostat/Thermal Overload Protector for Over Temperature Protection of Transformers

We are the leading manufacturer of Thermostat and Thermal Overload Protectors in India and we have developed two models of thermal overload protectors, i.e. Model BPM and Model ISQB, for over temperature and burnout protection of Transformers.

Transformer Protection Thermostat

Transformer Protection Thermostat – Model BPM

Description of Model BPM

Model BPM thermal overload protector has been specifically developed for over temperature and burn-out protection of transformers, where the thermostat has to be fitted inside the windings. This thermal overload protector is a miniature marvel of precision engineering and it is the smallest thermal cut-out in our complete range of products. Due to its small size, this thermostat is very sensitive to temperature rise and ampere load and can be fitted inside the winding. As soon as the windings start heating up, this thermal cut-out senses the temperature rise and switches off at the pre-determined cutoff temperature, thereby, protecting the transformer from overheating or burning out . This pre-determined cutoff temperature is factory preset and cannot be changed. This thermostat has solid silver contacts for long life. The internal operating mechanism is all spot welded on a stainless steel housing plate. The outer body of this thermal overload protector is a high temperature resistant engineering polymer.

Out thermostats have a snap action bimetal strip and a beryllium copper switching blade which operate on the over center mechanism. This provides the thermostat with a quick restart characteristic, accurate trip temperature. This trip temperature does not drift downwards after long usage. The other snap action disc thermostats have delayed restart and the trip temperature does not stay stable and drifts downwards after continuous usage.

Special Features of Thermal Overload Protector:

  • Smallest physical size, easy to fit
  • Very sensitive to temperature rise
  • Snap action bimetal quick make and break action
  • Solid silver contacts for long life of 1,00,000 operations
  • No sparking or chattering of contacts
  • High temperature resistant teflon lead wires
  • Available for any trip temperature from 50C to 160C

Application

Model BPM thermostat is suitable for over temperature and burnout protection of transformers of all types. This thermal overload protector should be fitted inside the windings of the transformer. It can be fitted either in the primary side or secondary side of the transformer, which ever winding is heating up. When a fault condition occurs and the temperature of the transformer winding rises, the thermostat will sense this rise and switch off, thereby, protecting the transformer from burnout. For protection of small transformers with low power ratings, the thermal cut-out can be connected in series with the winding. For protection of large transformers with high power ratings, the thermal overload protector cannot be connected in series as the high current can damage the cut-out or it will cause nuisance tripping. The thermal cut-out needs to be connected to a relay, contactor, indicator, or control circuit, which will switch off the transformer when the thermal cut-out reaches its cutoff temperature and trips off. This cutoff temperature is pre-determined and cannot be changed. It depends on the insulation class of the windings as well as the size of the transformers, for example, insulation class B the trip temperature should be 130 degrees C and for insulation class F the trip temperature should be 150 degrees C.

Surface Mounting Model ISQB Thermostat/Thermal Overload Protector for Transformer Protection

Transformer Thermal Protection

Transformer Thermal Protection – Model ISQB

Description of Model ISQB

Thermal Overload Protector Model ISQB is suitable for protection where space is a constraint and the thermostat cannot be fitted in the windings. The thermal cut-out can be mounted on the transformer body with two screws. It has a solid machined aluminum outer body, which provides strength and quick heat transfer for sensing temperature rise. The body is electrically insulated so that there is no chance of any electrical shock. The internal switching mechanism is based on a snap acting bi-metal which results in quick make and break. This ensures that there is no sparking when the thermostat switches off or on.

Special Features of Thermal Overload Protector:

  • Easily mountable with two screws
  • Insulated outer aluminum body for strength
  • Snap Action bimetal thermostat
  • Quick heat transfer, no chattering or sparking
  • Solid silver contacts for long life of 1,00,000 operations
  • High temperature teflon lead wires

Application

This thermal cut-out can be mounted on either the inside or outside of the body of the transformer with two screws. When the body heats up or the temperature of the windings rise, this thermal overload protector will sense the rise in temperature and will trip off at a pre-determined temperature. For low current and power transformers, the thermal cut-out can be fitted in series with the windings. While, for high current and power transformers, the thermal overload protector needs to be connected to a relay or a control circuit, which will switch off the current when the thermal cut-out trips off.
