The Klixon® 9700 protector is a field proven miniature protector developed to protect shaded pole and permanent split capacitor motors, fluorescent ballasts, solenoids, transformers and other electrical equipment against overheating.
In addition to being small and lightweight, the unit is both temperature and current sensitive. Since the 9700 is sealed to withstand varnish dipping, it can be mounted directly in windings where it can best sense the true temperature of the electrical equipment. As a result, over-temperature protection is assured.
Since the case is not electrically insulated, the protector is furnished with a durable Mylar insulating sleeve. Shrinkable and non-shrinkable sleeves are available.
