RPARTS specifically chose the Full Gauge MT-512EL 2HP because of its functionality and ease of use. It is favored by mariners who want the advanced capabilities of a digital thermostat without complicated programming.
The MT-512EL 2HP offers maximum flexibility to improve temperature control. Temperature ranges can be from -58 to 211 degrees F. The temperature differential between “compressor-off” to “compressor-on” can be adjusted, allowing users to achieve their preferred balance between power efficiency and temperature variation within the refrigerated compartment.
Featuring a large display that can be read from across the galley, the MT-512EL 2HP allows users to quickly assess temperature readings without having to open the refrigerator door. It comes with mounting clips to mount into a bulkhead or navigation station panel. The panel cutout dimensions are 1.14" x 2.83" (29mm x 72mm ).
The MT-512EL 2HP operates on 12 or 24 volt either AC or DC and the contacts can switch loads up to 16 amps. The temperature probe is included at no additional charge.
