1/2" Disc Thermostats

ATC Semitec stocks a comprehensive disc thermostat range from leading manufacturers Asahi Keiki and EAW.

Snap-action 1/2″disc bi-metal thermostats (or button thermostats) provide very reliable, cost-effective temperature control and thermal protection for domestic appliances and electronic circuits with a choice of manual or automatic reset available. These thermal switches can be supplied with tight tolerances and narrow differentials to make very effective thermostats; or they can be calibrated with wide differentials to provide over-temperature protection as either a thermal cut-out or a thermal limiter.
