With the Exo Terra 600W Thermostat with Day/Night Timer & Dual Sockets you can create a well-controlled 24-hour heating system that allows you to maintain the required temperature conditions similar to those found in a desert or tropical environment. Both the daytime and nighttime temperatures can be set and controlled individually to guarantee safe daytime-nighttime temperature fluctuations for your reptiles. 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 easy-to-read LCD screen shows heating mode, day or night mode and actual & set temperature.
A Red LED and a heating symbol will indicate when the heating device is powered. Once the set temperature is reached, the LED will switch to Blue and the heating symbol will no longer show.
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 nighttime temperatures and place the heat sensor in the desired spot.
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 600W Thermostat with Day/Night Timer 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 600W Thermostat with Timer 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 set the night-time temperature at its lowest point (10°C – 50°F) in order to avoid the bulb to emit light and thus disturb your animal’s normal activity cycle.
