LIMIT Temperature Control
The LIMIT protects expensive heaters and sensitive
materials from damaging over temperature conditions.
It is designed for industrial and commercial applications
that require high temperature protection.
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD. Read and understand
all instructions before installing, servicing or operating LIMIT controller. Failure to do so could result
in personal injury or property damage.
The LIMIT features a Form C latching, manually resettable relay output that de-energizes whenever the sensed
temperature exceeds the set point temperature.
The Heating system designer is responsible for the
safety of the equipment and must determine the
suitability of this temperature LIMIT controller with
other electric heating equipment. Where the consequences of failure could result in personal injury or
property damage, back-up controls are essential.
The DIN Rail mounting feature allows quick installation
without drilling or extra hardware. Slots are also provided for direct panel mounting.
Two methods are provided to reset an alarm condition.
(1) The Limit alarm has a reset pushbutton on the unit
and (2) reset terminals are provided for resetting the
alarm from a remote pushbutton.
Mounting
The LIMIT can be surface mounted or DIN rail mounted. It can be mounted to any suitable fl at surface using
two #6 screws (not supplied). To install simply position
the top set of rear clips over the top of the DIN rail.
Then swing the bottom of the controller toward the rail
applying pressure until the lower clips snap on to the
bottom of the DIN rail. To remove apply pressure to the
top of the controller’s base and move the bottom of the
controller toward you. Then lift the top of the controller
off the upper DIN rail. The housing rating is NEMA 1.
This controller must be mounted in an enclosure
suitable for protection against normally expected
operation environments and to minimize unauthorized tampering with the limit settings.
FIRE/EXPOSION HAZARD. This heater is not intended for use in hazardous atmospheres where flammable vapors, gases, liquids or other combustible
atmospheres are present as defined in the National
Electrical Code. Failure to comply can result in personal injury or property damage.

Operation
Maintenance
The set point temperature is adjustable by turning the
integral dial. If the set point is exceeded, contacts 4
and 5 will open. It will remain in this state until the temperature drops below the set point and the controller is
manually reset. Manual reset can be accomplished by
one of the following means:
No specific maintenance is required. However, it is
recommended that all wiring be checked periodically
for loose connections and damaged wires. Disconnect
power to the panel before any maintenance is performed. Check wires and tighten connections.
a) Press the “reset button”.
b) A momentary switch closure between terminals 8
and 9.
c) Interrupt power to the control.
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD. Disconnect all power before
installing or servicing LIMIT controller. Failure to do so
could result in personal injury or property damage.
Troubleshooting
Custom Controllers
Experience has proven that many control problems
are not caused by a defective instrument. Some of the
common causes of failure are broken sensors, open
fuses and poor wire connections. If these points have
been checked and the control still does not function,
it is suggested that the instrument be returned for inspection. Use adequate packing materials to prevent
damage in shipment.
Custom temperature ranges and fixed set point units
are available to meet your specific application needs.

Wiring
Carefully follow the terminal diagram pictured on the
controller’s housing and shown above. The power and
load wiring should be 18 AWG or larger size. Be sure to
observe that the ratings for voltage and current are not
exceeded. All local and national electrical codes must
be followed.
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD. Any installation involving
LIMIT temperature controllers must be performed by
a qualified person and must be effectively grounded
in accordance with the National Electrical Code to
eliminate shock hazard. Failure to do so could result
in personal injury or property damage.
Use only the sensor type as indicated on the control
and maintain correct polarity. THE RED THERMOCOUPLE LEAD ALWAYS CONNECTS TO THE NEGATIVE (–)
TERMINAL. To reduce electrical noise, the thermocouple wire must be isolated from any power or heater wiring. Shielded thermocouple wire may be necessary in
high noise environments or when lead lengths exceed
10 feet (3 m). Thermocouples are tip sensitive and must
be in good mechanical contact with the load.
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD. Disconnect all power
before installing or servicing LIMIT controller. Failure to do so could result in personal injury or property damage.
The remote reset terminals allow for a remote pushbutton (on the panel door) to reset the LIMIT alarm. If
multiple units are mounted in a panel, the remote reset
terminals cannot be wired in parallel. The remote pushbutton needs a separate contact block for each LIMIT.
A single contact input cannot be used to reset multiple
LIMITs.
