Bimetal temperature switch TSM-Atex, TSE-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. The TSM/TSE series consists of simple electrical equipment. In the case of intrinsically safe connections as per EN 60079-14, the TSM/TSE 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. These temperature switches are designed in a manner, which allows the internal electrical components to be replaced without having to remove the switching tube from the tank. This is convenient if the temperature switch is installed laterally inside the oil.
