Heat Sensor

A device that opens and closes a switch in response to changes in the temperature.

This device might be a metal contact, or a thermocouple which generates a minute electrical current proportional to the difference in heat, or a variable resistor whose value changes in response to changes in temperature.

Also called a temperature sensor.
