I got this thermostat as a sample 20 years ago when I worked for Ten-Tec.
A Google search came up with this reference:
The 6786-2 is about as big as a nickel. I mounted it on the base of the
Astron's heat sink rather than a fin. It is a 170F normally open type and
goes in the power lead to the 12 V fan I mounted on the rear of the sink.
It's a very simple and reliable method of keeping your gear cool, especially
when you want to mount it out of the way where you can't monitor it easily.
