10RS Snap–Action Radiant Control

Therm-O-Disc

The 10RS auto reset bimetal radiant sensor from Therm–O–Disc® offers proven reliability in a specialized and cost–effective design.  The unique ”U”–shaped snap–action bimetal design not only provides high–speed contact separation at electrical loads up to 5.75 amps at 120VAC but also enables the 10RS to maintain radiant sensitivity while compensating for ambient temperature changes. The CSA certified 10RS is most commonly used in hot surface ignition applications such as gas cloth dryers.
