Limit Thermostats
Electromechanical TB according to DIN3440

• Limit thermostat with single-pole changeover microswitch
• Switching capacity
contact connection 11-12 10 (2.5) A, AC 250 V
Terminal for alarm
contact connection 11-13 0.5 A, AC 250 V
• Time constant conforming to DIN 3440
• 3 mounting choices: pipe, pocket or wall mounting
• Switch-off temperature can be checked through the viewing window in the
• Internal reset facility covered by removable threaded nipple
Typical applications:
• Heat generation plant
• For general use in heating, ventilation and air conditioning plant
• Underfloor heating systems (RAK-TB.1400)
When the switch-off temperature is reached, contact connection 11-12 changes over to
contact connection 11-13 (alarm) and the thermostat remains tripped in this position.
When the temperature of the medium falls below the value of the switching differential,
the limit thermostat (TB) must be manually reset after removal of the threaded nipple.
