Q: Can I get a customized thermal protector from you?

A: Yes. We are providing customized service for our noble customers. If you need a customized thermal protector sample, please kindly tell us the following parameters:

1) Rated voltage and Current

2) Action temperature

3) Dimensional requirements

4)Overloading or Tripping current if needed

5) Application and relevant special demands

6) Potential order quantity.

If the customized thermal protector has the same dimension as our current models, and you only need special parameters, we would not charge any cost for 5 pcs samples. If the requested dimensions are different, we may need to build new toolings for this customization. It would cause extra cost and we can negotiate separately.

Q: What’s the shipping term of bimetal thermal switch?

A: Since all our bimetal thermal switches have small size, the shipping term should be based on the order quantity. If the order is above 50,000 pcs per shipment, the most economical shipping term is by sea. If the order quantity of thermal switch is less than 10,000 pcs per shipment, shipping by express would be the only choice because the weight of 10,000 pcs would be less than 50Kg, MOQ of shipping by air. For the quantity between 10,000 and 50,000 pcs, express or shipping by air is optional, depending on the weight of different thermal switches.

Q: How can I get free thermal protector samples?

A: We can provide 10 pcs of thermal protector samples for free to our noble customers, but the overseas shipping cost will be paid by customers.

If you want to have some free thermal protector samples from us, you need to tell us your specific contact information. Besides that, the following chart about the samples parameters would be necessary:
