I'm guessing you're looking for a replacement? If you Google 'remote capillary thermostat', you will find many similar items. For example:

I have used the Omron D5C capacitive touch switches with good results. You probably want the 'free-attachment' version, so you can put your own actuator on it.

I have always used a set/reset method similar to kwade's. I think a numeric step number is actually better, but I have been using this set/reset logic since the '80s, and it's hard to change. ;)

I suspect that the XIO T4:2/EN in the 3rd rung is resetting T4:1. While I'd expect the XIC T4:2/EN to already be on to maintain T4:2 in the following rung, the lack of the XIC T4:1/DN branch might...
