  • What is the difference between standard and open-function TCs?
    • An open-function TC is specially constructed using a thermally sensitive wire to connect the die to the frame that acts like a fuse to prevent smoking and possible flames from being generated due to excessive heat caused by overcurrent.

      The melted wire results in an open circuit within the capacitor.
