A thermal overload ralay is a device to protect an electrical device like a motor/generator from catching fire/burning out due to excessive heat produced during operation. The relay has a bi-metallic contact that operates with temperature. When the temperature of the system goes above a pre-set value, the contact goes from closed position to open, and the power supply to the circuit is cut and the device is saved from damages. So it keeps the system with in the safe operating temperatures. You may find thermal relays for different temperature values, based on the operating range of your equipment.
Siemens provides 3UA series of overload relays based on the concept of bimetallic strips. The bimetallic thermal relay consists of a small bimetallic strip that is heated by an element connected in series with the supply. When the current rises above a preset value, the movement of the strip releases a catch which opens the trip contacts.
3UA Series Overload Relays are suitable for overload and phase – failure protection of AC motors with frequency of 50/60Hz, voltage up to 690 ~ 1000V, current up to 0.1 ~ 400A under 8 – hours duty or uninterrupted duty. The relays are also suitable for overload protection of DC magnet and DC motors.
The relays comply with IEC947-4, VDE0660 and GB14048. Several functions provided by these relays are: phase-failure protection, temperature compensation, ON/OFF indication and manual/automatic reset. The relays can be mounted onto contactors or installed as single units
