Paper describes a number of thermosensitive devices, including thermal relays, heat sensitive detectors, based on shape memory effect. Thermosensitive part of the devices is made of a small piece of TiNi-based thin ribbon produced by melt spinning technique. Owing to this developed devices are of miniature size, high speed response, narrow temperature hysteresis, low cost. Industrial production of several types of thermosensors was organized. Designs and some characteristics of the devices are presented.
