PTC Element 12 mm

The element automatically ajusts its power consumption until it reaches the pre-set desired temperature (curie temp). Thanks to its self-regulating properties, the same element can be used both for air- and water heating without any risk of over heating.

We offer a standard range of PTC 12 mm as well as custom made products.
