Klixon® 16HM SERIES

Manufacturer: Klixon®

Hermetically Sealed Single Phase On Winding Protection

The 16HM utilizes two internal heaters. One of them is sensitive to start winding current and the other is sensitive to main winding current. The device can protect against start winding overheating and against conditions which generate high main winding currents. Its compact and rugged design make it resistant to mechanical shock and suitable for installation directly on motor windings.

Line Break Operation

Klixon® 16HM motor protectors are line break automatic reset controls which are wired in series with the motor windings. These protectors are designed to track winding temperatures and to respond to changes in line current. When properly applied, the 16HM can provide protection against motor overheating under the following conditions:

  • Running overload
  • High/low voltage locked rotor
  • High voltage light load
  • Loss of refrigerant charge
  • Welded start relay
  • Shorted capacitor
  • Blocked condenser fan
Application Motor Protector from 2 to 6HP
