  • Patent number: 10700478
    Abstract: A heat destructive disconnecting switch comprises a first conductive member, a second conductive member, a movable conductive member, an overheating destructive member, an operating component, and a second elastic member. The movable conductive member conducts electricity to the first conductive member and the second conductive member. The overheating destructive member is formed as an integral body on a limiting member, and a first elastic member is compressed to between a contact member and the overheating destructive member, thereby providing the first elastic member with a first elastic force. The second elastic member is provided with a second elastic force. When the overheating destructive member is destructed due to overheating, the first elastic force is smaller than the second elastic force, causing the movable conductive member to disconnect the first conductive member from the second conductive member to achieve a protective effect from overheating.

  • Patent number: 10673185
    Abstract: An overheating destructive switch, comprising: a first conductive element, a second conductive element, a movable conductive element, an overheating destructive element, an operating component, and a second elastic element. The movable conductive element connects the first conductive element and the second conductive element. A first elastic element and the second elastic element act on an operating element. The first elastic element is compressed and has a first elastic force, and the second elastic element has a second elastic force. The first elastic force is greater than the second elastic force under in a normal state. When the overheating destructive element is destroyed due to overheating, the first elastic force is reduced or lost, such that the second elastic force becomes greater than the first elastic force. The movable conductive element is consequently disconnected from the first conductive element and the second conductive element, thus achieving protection against overheating.
