List the applications of a temperature-actuated switch.

Explanation of Solution

Temperature-actuated switch uses a mechanism that is used to sense and measure the temperature. The temperature switch works on the basis of the temperature variation occurring in an enclosed place or in an open area. The switch can be actuated when the specific or limited temperature range is reached. For example, thermal overload relay is the temperature switch used for the motor protection. Mostly used in control circuits.

The applications of temperature actuated switches are as follows:

  • Heaters.
  • Blowers.
  • Fans.
  • Solenoid valves.
  • Pumps.

Conclusion:

Thus, the applications of the temperature-actuated switches are listed.
