An insatiable hunger for power
Thermal fuses are used for safe and one-time separation of circuits when a specified permissible operating temperature is exceeded. This prevents a possible fire even after years of reliable operation. The most common applications are in unattended power electronics to protect power supplies, electric motors, blowers and much more. But it does not really matter which heat source it is. Every application in which there may be excessive heat generation offers potential for a thermal fuse.
