With the Exo Terra 300W Dimming & Pulse Proportional Thermostat you can create a well-controlled heating system that allows you to maintain the required temperature conditions similar to those found in a desert or tropical environment.
The Thermostat will also 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.
The Exo Terra Thermostat should be set according to the needs of the animals. Thoroughly 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. Adjust the Exo Terra Thermostat according to the required temperature range for your pet’s environment.
The recessed dial of the thermostat will prevent accidental temperature change if the device is being handled. The Thermostat comes with a power-cord with grounded plug & socket for increased safety and to allow the use of a power outlet strip. The waterproof remote sensor can be safely used in highly moist terrariums and aquatic environments.
Simply connect your Heat Mat, Heat Cable, Ceramic Heater or Incandescent Heat Bulb to the Exo Terra Thermostat, set the preferred temperature and place the heat sensor in the desired spot.
NOTE: In combination with a non-visible light emitting heat source (like Exo Terra’s Heat Mat, Heat Cable, Ceramic Heater, Infrared Basking Spot or Night Heat Lamp), the Exo Terra 300W Dimming & Pulse Proportional Thermostat allows you to create a well-controlled 24-hour heating system that will not interrupt your animal’s normal activity cycle, while maintaining the required temperature conditions similar to those found in their natural environment.
NOTE: When using the Exo Terra 300W Dimming & Pulse Proportional Thermostat in combination with a visible-light emitting bulb (like Exo Terra’s Intense Basking Spot, Daylight Basking Spot or Daytime Heat Lamp) to create a daytime basking area or for ambient daytime heating purposes, you need to switch the Thermostat on at sunrise and off at sunset either manually or by means of a timer, in order to avoid the bulb to emit light at night disturbing your animal’s normal activity cycle.
