ELSTEIN – TSE Thyristor
The TSE thyristor switching units are used to switch the load circuits (infrared heaters) and are available in two power stages:
TSE 40 A, max. 40 A = 9.2 kW at 230 V
TSE 20 A, max. 20 A = 4.6 kW at 230 V
TSE thyristor switching units are supplied complete with heat sink and mounting clips for 35-mm standard rails. They are not subjected to any contact wear and therefore do not cause any switching noises. They are easy to install and their service life is virtually unlimited.
The loads are switched on at voltage zero and switched off at current zero. This means there is no system perturbation.
The permissible voltage is 24 – 265 V for TSE 20 A and 42 – 660 V for TSE 40 A. A thyristor switching unit must be provided for each phase of a multi-phase connection to a 230/400 V alternating current mains.
The thyristor switching units must be protected against short circuits with super-agile fuses.
Transformers cannot be switched due to the Rush Effect.
Further information and safety information are given in the TSE operating instruction.
