The SF type contains a sliding contact, two springs and a thermal pellet inside a metal case. Under normal temperatures, the sliding contact touches the top of the lead. The current flows through the sliding contact and the metal case to the other lead and the electrical circuit is closed. When the ambient temperature reaches a critical point, the thermal pellet melts and the springs move the sliding contact away, resulting in an interruption of the electrical flow.
