I am planning use to resettable thermostat switch in my circuit. I will use it to turn off the optocoupler input. With 5 volt, current is 5-10 mA in optocoupler LED. But I'm worried that an electric arc might occur between the contacts. Electric arc can cause instability of optocoupler. Does it require debounce like in the MCU button switch event? (with capacitor)
Large inductance and current causes arcing. But not here with 10mA and IR LED .
These are the specs which indicates no arcing.
Detail: Features of Structure: 1.Quickly respond to the variation of temperature, being straightforward, reliable, making no arc discharge. 2.The design is free from thermal effect of current, providing accurate temperature, long service life and low internal resistance. Direction for Use: 1.The product is applicable to chargeable batteries, ballasts, massagers, various fractional motors, plastic package motors, transformers, apparatus, etc. 2.The product should be closely attached on the mounting surface of the controlled instrument when it is arranged in a way of contact temperature sensing. 3.Avoid the collapse or deformation of outer casings under great pressure during installment so as not to decrease the performance. Note: Clients may choose diverse outer casings and conducting wires subject to different requirements. Technical Parameters Switch Type : normally closed normally opened Operating Voltage/Current: AC250V/5A AC125/8A Operating Temperature: 30-160C (one step for every 5C) Standard Tolerance: ±5C Reset Temperature: operating temperature decrease by 15-45C Contact Closure Resistance: ≤50mΩ Insulation Resistance: ≥100MΩ Service Life: 10000 times
