Thermal sensors in Temperature control in deep freezers, coolers
Thermal Reed Switches are used in Deep Freezers and in a wide range of temperature control applications, either to take certain action like switching on a cooling circuits or to trigger alarms. Due to their clear on and off signal and high reliability, they are used in place of bimetallic strips, thermistors and thermostats for over-heat protection or precise temperature switching.
In deep freezers, coolers and heaters, the temperature needs to be maintained within a precise window. Thermal reed sensors can be designed having windows as small as 2°C up to 10°C, and can switch up to 60W directly. The sensor can control the switching on and switching off points of compressors in deep freezers and fans in coolers. Thermal reed switches can also be used in aquariums by switching heaters in the water to keep the temperature exactly between 25°C and 30°C.
Standard Magnet Senors are also used in Deep freezers to check if the door has been left open based on a simple timer circuit and can also help count the number of times the deep freezer is being opened. This is especially useful in shops.
The Reed Switches and Sensors used in such applications need to be robust, durable and efficient in meeting a high life expectancy. Our engineers work hard in life testing our products under various conditions, and we want to ensure that the the end product has a long working life. Although we wouldn’t want to restrict our products for use in only certain applications, the recommended products for use in temperature control applications are listed below.
