Temperature switches

PDTF Series factory-set temperature switches protect gearboxes, hydraulic reservoirs, and industrial power plants, as well as internal combustion engines, pumps, and compressors.

Features & benefits

  • Withstand acceleration to 8 g
  • Compact and rugged construction allows mounting in harsh OEM applications
  • A liquid-filled capillary senses temperature changes; liquid expands as the temperature increases, causing capillary pressure to increase
