Abstract : The patent relates to a positive lockout control for electric circuits. More specifically, it relates to a control unit suitable for being interposed between an electrical supply and a load. This load may be in the nature of an oil or water bath or constant temperature drying oven and the like, which it is sought to maintain at constant temperature. If the water temperature rises beyond the preset maximum, a heat sensitive control triggers the unit to interrupt the power supply simultaneously with the illumination of a signal light. To reestablish the current supply then requires a manual resetting of the unit.
