The starter operates like a glow lamp, one electrode of which is provided with a strip of bimetal.

It is a tripping device with delay effect which in the overload range acts on a tripping pawl by heating up of one bimetal each per outer conductor.
Overload circuit breakers can be equipped with magnetic instantaneous trips and bimetal trips
