Q: What is the payment term of thermal switch?

A: Our acceptable payment terms of thermal switch are:

1. 100% T T with order (It is suitable for total amount less than USD20,000)

2. L/C at sight ( We would request 30% T/T with order and the balance 70% to be L/C at sight. The issuing bank of LC should be agreeed by us and total amount of thermal switch order should be more than USD20,000)

3. For the small amount, for examples less than USD5000, we may request 100% T/T to our personal account to avoid customs clearance.

4. For the sample fee, if the customer can pay the delivery cost, we will provide 5 samples for free. If the customer can not pay the delivery cost, USD100 will be charged for both sample and delivery cost.


Q: What is the leadtime of thermal switch?

A: Our common leadtime for bimetal thermal switch is 20 days upon receipt of advance. If we have inventory, the leadtime could be 7 days.

For new products ,the leadtime would be 25 to 30 days.

Sometimes rush orders are also acceptable, but the lead time should be agreed by both sides before order release.


Q: What qaulity assurance system do you use in your factory to ensure the thermal switch quality?

A: 1. To ensure the quality consistence of our bimetal thermal switch, we got ISO9001:2008 version certification and fulfill the system strictly. In 2012, we started to implement TS16949 system to meet the demands of automotive cusotmers.

2. The life endurance we guaranteed is based on the working enviroment and rating. Different thermal switch has different level, like 10,000 cycles, 30,000 cycles or 100,000 cycles.

3. The defective rate of our thermal switch that we promise to our customer is 100 ppm.


Q: How should I select the correct action temperature of thermostat?

A: The action temperature selection of a thermostat should be based on the application:

Measure the temperature of the position where the thermostat would be mounted;

Setting the temperature range of application;

Select the temperature of a thermostat. The current flowing through thermostat need to be considered when selecting this temperature. If this thermostat is used for heat protection, the action value should be above the normal working temperature, but lower than the temperature limit of other components to be damaged.


Q: What are the special notes for mounting thermal cutout?

A: 1. The temperature sensing surface of thermal cutout has to contact the heat source directly and tightly;

2. The contact surface must be flat and with good temperature conductivity. The fixing belt or fastener has to be reliable and no sharp edges, to avoid damaging the insulation of thermal cut out.

3. If surface of thermal cutout is electricity conductive, the insulation sleeving should contact the thermal cutout body as tightly as possible, to reach the best heat sensitivity.
