Klixon Thermostats: Thermostats



A thermostat measures temperature and can help regulate it by starting or stopping the heat supply.

Sensata Technologies offers a broad selection of styles for all aerospace, satellite, commercial & military aircraft, medical equipment, and HVAC markets. Our Klixon precision thermostats are designed for temperature protection or control in harsh environments.
Utilizing a bimetal, snap acting disc as the thermal sensing element, Klixon precision thermostats feature exceptionally high reliability and long life. Standard configurations, probe style packages, or custom packaging can meet most design requirements.

Sensata Technologies Precision Products quality system is ISO 9000 registered. Additionally, the quality system complies with the inspection system requirements of MIL-I-45208, the quality program requirements of MIL-Q-9858, and the reliability and quality assurance requirements of NASA NHB 5300.4 (IC). Measuring equipment is traceable to the National Bureau of Standards. The calibration system satisfies the requirements of MIL-STD-45662.

Small particle cleaning and inspection and particle impact noise detection (PIND) are available for demanding applications. Residual gas analysis can be performed on hermetically sealed units.
