Dimming Pulse Proportional thermostats can be used with heat mats, heat cables, ceramic heaters AND heat bulbs unlike the smaller wattage On/Off thermostats! Before purchase make sure this will be suitable for your heat source.
Can control heating devices up to 600w.
Thermostats are vital pieces of equipment for any reptile keeper, as they help to prevent overheating and undercooling during hot summer days or cold winter nights.
The Dimming & Pulse Proportional function keeps the temperature at the desired set-point with a much higher accuracy than conventional thermostats and virtually eliminates temperature swings in the terrarium.
Daytime and night-time temperatures can be set individually unlike lots of other thermostats where you can only set it to come on and off at one set temperature, making them perfect for desert reptiles where temperatures usually fall at night in their natural habitat.
Simply connect your Heat Mat, Heat Cable, Ceramic Heater or Incandescent Heat Bulb to the Exo Terra Day/Night Thermostat, set the preferred daytime and night-time temperatures and place the heat sensor in the desired spot.
The Exo Terra Thermostat should be set according to the needs of the animals so always horoughly research the preferred optimum temperature range (POTR) for your specific reptile, so you can create the correct temperature gradients inside the terrarium to allow your reptiles to thermoregulate. Always use a Thermometer to monitor the temperature inside your terrarium and adjust the Exo Terra Thermostat according to the required temperature range for your pet's environment.
