PEPI C & CR Creep Action Thermostats

PEPI C thermostats are versatile, multipurpose creep-action thermostats fitted with a conductive bimetal element.  They are equipped with slow-break, slow-make contacts which combined with a tight tolerance, ensures a minimum temperature differential and thus close thermal control of your appliance.

The PEPI C is available with calibrations from 5°C to 200°C (in 1K steps if necessary) and can be supplied with a set-point tolerance down to ±3K.  Fitted with gold-diffused contacts as standard, they are ideal for low-voltage/low current loads.  They can be fitted with a variety of lead-wire options to suit your assembly requirements.

The sister PEPI CR temperature switch has normally-open contacts for use with cooling fans or in safety circuits to switch on a warning light or other alarm.  It is also equipped with gold-diffused contacts as standard for use in low load circuits.
