A LINE OF FULLY INSULATED THERMAL DISCONNECTS FOR APPLIANCE APPLICATIONS THAT ARE SELF-EXTINGUISHING AND V-O RATED PER UL 94, WITH AN OPEN BARREL “F” CRIMP RATHER THAN A ROLLOVER, TO ASSURE A HIGH INTEGRITY CONNECTION, IS BEING INTRODUCED BY ETCO INCORPORATED OF WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND.

ETCO Thermal Disconnects feature a fire-retardant nylon insulator with a high temperature alloy which maintains the spring characteristics of brass when subjected to 150°C and an “F” crimp connection for high reliability. Designed for application by automated wire processing equipment, they are offered in strip form and produced to UL and NEMA specifications.

Available in straight and flag styles to mate with .110″ x .020″, .187″ x .020″, and .250″ x .032″ NEMA male tabs, ETCO Thermal Disconnects replace heat shrink tubing in many applications. Creating safer appliance connec-tions, if there is a malfunction, the nylon insulator collapses on itself and safely holds until the appliance completes an automatic shutdown.

ETCO Thermal Disconnects are priced according to type, style, and quantity. Literature and samples are available upon request.
