HI LIMIT SWITCH
A high limit ( "Hi Limit" or simply "Limit") switch is one of the most important safety features in numerous pieces of restaurant equipment. In the event that your equipment begins to operate at temperatures above maximum specifications, the high limit will shut down the unit. The high limit switch regulates equipment operation by closely monitoring the equipment's operating temperature.
In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can disconnect or connect the conducting path in an electrical circuit, interrupting the electric current or diverting it from one conductor to another. The most common type of switch is an electro-mechanical device consisting of one or more sets of movable electrical contacts connected to external circuits. When a pair of contacts is touching, current can pass between them, while when the contacts are separated no current can flow.
