What is Temperature Power Sensor?
Temperature Power Sensor(TPS) is Matsuo's bimetal type control thermostat.
Please call it as TPS.
TPS has been registered as a trademark in U.S.A.
As shown below, most of the bimetal type thermostat are disk type protector which cannot be used for a controller.
While all the bimetal type thermostats in the world are designed based on the protector type, Matsuo has been establishing its unique position as a manufacturer of the control type thermostat since 1975, and has begun to sell the control thermostat since 1980.

Flat metal type bimetal can return to the original position even more than 10 million times of temperature rising/falling.
The snap spring which is compound metal of copper and beryllium can switch on and off in a very small distance of 0.05mm, and can perform more than 2 million mechanical operations.
Matsuo utilizes this special snap spring for Temperature Power Sensor, in addition to it, employs 2 pcs. of bimetal in order to increase sensitivity of temperature to double.
TPS consists of those features and performs as the high accurate temperature control.

TPS itself has been mounted in a compact closed case.
TPS expands the operational range as a controller since the differential can be minimized to 3 degrees.
Mechanical life of TPS is 2 million operations. 100,000 electrical operations at a rated load, 500,000 electrical operations at a half of rated load and 1 million electrical operations at a 1/4 rated load.
Furthermore the price of TPS is very attractive.
As the price structure is slide methods with quantity, we can supply this model at 2 to 3 times of disk type price or at a 1/2,1/3 price of electronic thermostat.
