Code No. BAC, Bulb and Capillary




Thermostats regulate temperature in non-critical applications. They sense temperature, within a preset range and cycle heaters on and off to maintain the set point.

Thermostats may be mounted inside a terminal enclosure or remote mounted (separate from the heater assembly). If using a remote mounted thermostat, be sure to order the sufficient capillary tube length to permit installation.

All Watlow thermostats are normally closed circuit and either single-pole, single-throw (SPST) or double pole, single-throw (DPST). They can be used with or without an enclosure.

Thermostat selection should be based on temperature range, capillary tube length and sensor bulb size (diameter/length).

Pilot Light

An optional pilot light gives visual indication whether the power supplied to the heating element(s) is on or off.


Celsius Dial Scale

Thermostats are shipped with Fahrenheit (ºF) dial scales. If your application requires a Celsius (ºC) scale, order the optional dial face. To order, specify code CD. Scale will match thermostat temperature range.


Warning

Do not use thermostats for high-limit sheath protection. Thermostats fail in a closed circuit mode and will not cut power to the heaters. Limit control should be provided by an isolated, redundant sensor and control system of the appropriate type, design and installation.

Thermostats are precalibrated at the factory. No adjustment, other than selecting the desired operating temperature, is required. All wiring should be performed by qualified personnel and comply with the National Electrical Code and other applicable state and local codes.

To help assure the correct thermostat is selected as well as installed and wired properly, here are a few helpful hints. Schematics are provided for interconnecting thermostats to single- and three-phase heaters.
