The thermostat integrates a switching module to control dc devices in switch cabinets. Heating and cooling devices, filter fans or signal heads can be controlled directly via the internal switching circuit. Temperature measurement is achieved by placing the external sensor freely within the control cabinet. The setting range is 60°C, available in two versions: -10°C to +50°C and 0 to +60 °C. Voltage range is from 20 to 56 Vdc.
The switching module of the DCT 010 is available in versions as normally open (NO) contact, i.e., for controlling filter fans and also in versions as normally closed (NC) contact, i.e., for controlling heaters. Additionally, the NC versions offer a secondary switching function that monitors humidity of the ambient air.
A threshold value of 65% relative humidity is fixed. Other features include a redundant design with MOSFET technology, a lifetime expectancy exceeding 100,000 switching cycles, tool-free connection, and a six-pin push-in terminal supporting cables with cross-sections up to 2.5 mm2.
