Temperature switches: First and foremost to prevent engine overheating!
The main application for temperature switches is controlling electrical cooling fans in the engine cooling circuit. They are required to prevent the engine overheating in certain situations. There is a danger of over-heating at extreme conditions or working at full load.
ACS supplies temperature switches that are also based on the thermally expanding wax principle an not on a cheap bimetal solution!
This is why you can always rely on the outstanding quality and durability of our first class temperature switches.
When the coolant reaches a certain temperature, the wax inside the switch increases in volume. This expansion pushes out a piston which switches on a fan. If the temperature then drops below a certain value, the wax contracts and the fan is turned off.
A single temperature switch can be used to switch the fan on and off or one temperature switch can be used to turn the fan on and another to turn it off.
We can supply you with thermal switches made to your specifications up to an operating voltage of 24 V.
We will provide you with all the advice you need to decide which solution is the best for your application
For more complex applications, where, for example, several fans are cascaded and are turned on one after the other until the cooling effect is adequate, we also provide a range of multi-switches. Apart from their switch action, our multifunction switches can also collect temperature data in real time.
Please note that we offer also thermoswitch integrated products such as our BTM-Multifunctions-oiltemperatureregulator with oilfilter connection.
There you can find a combination between an oiltemperature regulator and a thermoswitch.
With this product called BTM it will be possible to filter the lubrication oil, switch on/off e.g. a cooling fan and regulate the oiltemperature in your oilcooling system.
