Canadian-UL (UL File #34618)

The Klixon 6786 thermostat is a snap–acting disc type control designed to provide crisp, positive switching action for applications where maximum shock and vibration resistance is required. The Klixon snap–acting disc and fine silver electrical contacts are sealed in a stainless steel cup to provide protection from dust and other foreign particles. This construction also assures rapid thermal response plus dependable circuit operation at all times.

The small size of the 6786 makes it particularly suitable where space and weight accommodations are limited. For more information, see the page of drawings available for download.
