Thermal Fuse - Holding Temperature vs. Rated Functioning Temperature


#1

The Holding Temperature is the Max Temperature that the Thermal Fuse will continuously operate at without opening.
Keep in mind if the Temperature is exceeded for a period of time the thermal fuse can open.
The Rated Functioning Temperature is the Minimum Temperature that the Thermal Fuse is rated to open.
However, Thermal Fuses can open between the stated holding and the functioning temperature ratings.
