Bimetal Temperature switch TSA-Atex, TOA-Atex

Since the viscosity of oil changes based on the temperature, operating temperatures must be monitored. Depending on the requirements, monitoring by means of indicating the minimum temperature to warning points and ending with shut down will suffice. The warning or shut-off points are implemented using a bimetallic switch and in the process, hysteresis can also be used as a reset point. When applying switch points below 50 °C the temperature difference between the system and ambient should be adequate or the reset point cannot be reached reliably. The TSA-Atex series consists of simple electrical equipment without a separate voltage source. In the case of intrinsically safe connections as per EN 60079-14, the TSA-Atex can be used in Zone 1 (group IIC, device category 2G) explosive areas; this also applies to the inner zone of the tank. The temperature switches are classified as temperature class T4. The temperature switch was designed to allow removing the electrical inner workings without having to remove the switching tube from the tank. This is convenient if the temperature switch is installed laterally inside the oil.
