Airpax® 6600 Series

Manufacturer: Airpax®

8-PIN dip bimetal disc thermostat

The Airpax™ 6600 series is a RoHS compliant, positive snap action, single pole / single throw, sub-miniature bimetallic thermostat which provides accurate and reliable sensing and switching in a single device. The 6600 series thermostat dimensionally conforms to the international product package standard 8-pin DIP (N8A Dual Inline Package).

The 6600 is ideally suited for use on printed circuit boards. Its size and shape conserves space on crowded PC boards and can be installed using auto-insertion equipment. The device is sealed to withstand wave soldering and board washing operations. The 6600 provides fast, positive response with excellent repeatability.
The thermostat has a switch capability of up to 1 amp for 48 VDC or 120 VAC for 30,000 cycles, and achieves low-level switching down to 0.001 A to 0.020 A at 5 VDC for 100,000 cycles. Temperature is pre-set at the factory and is non-adjustable in the field. Applications include computers and computer peripherals, aircraft, automotive and test equipment.

Typical uses include turning on an indicator light, sounding an audible alarm, switch on a control circuit to send a message to a display screen or even switching a circuit to shut down a system. The 6600 thermostat is temperature tested in a computer controlled automated test equipment air-oven.
Due to the ideal conditions under which it is tested, independent customer testing may be necessary to ensure that the correct calibration is utilized in the application.
It is the customer’s responsibility to determine whether the product is proper for customer’s use and application.
