Thermostats and Sensors
Thermostats are typically integral to the heater, encapsulated in silicone rubber and mounted in a heated area. The position is determined based upon application considerations, prototyping and testing.
Thermostats separate from heater and ambient sensing thermostats in several temperature ranges are also available.
Thermocouples, RTD’s, thermistors and thermal fuses are normally mounted under a silicone rubber cap which is vulcanized to the heater sheath. The position can be anywhere on the heater surface.
