CODE: BRL series

Sensata Technologies builds the BRL motor protector to meet almost any requirement of protection in a wide range of small motors.

Operating Principle - The BRL series uses the same snap–action principle of other Klixon protectors. The bimetal disc senses both heat and current. A current flows through the resistive Klixon bimetal disc. When the temperature of the disc reaches a predetermined calibration point the disc snaps open the contact, breaking the current path. The contacts close again automatically as the device cools down to a safe running temperature.
