A temperature switch is designed to monitor the temperature of the air that is being compressed. If the temperature rises above a certain level, the switch will activate and shut off the compressor. This is important because if the air becomes too hot, it can cause damage to the compressor.
There are two main types of temperature switches that are used in air compressors: mechanical and electrical. Mechanical switches are the most common type, and they work by using a bimetallic strip that expands when it gets hot. This expansion causes the switch to trip and shut off the compressor. Electrical switches are less common, but they can be more accurate than mechanical switches. They work by using a sensor to monitor the air temperature. If the temperature rises above a certain level, the switch will activate and shut off the compressor.
