The HabiStat Temperature Thermostat is an on/ off switching device, that can be used with a variety of heaters in your reptiles habitat.
It has an accurate dial calibrated in both Farenheit and Celcius. Ideal for controlling heat mats, heat emitters and other low powered heaters up a maximum load of 600 watts.
This thermostat is not suitable for controlling light bulbs. The constant turning on and off of the light bulb would not only distress your animals, but would cause frequent failure of the lamps. This, in turn, is very likely to make your thermostat fail – for light bulbs we recommend our other Dimming Thermostat – Habistat Dimming Classic
This unit has a probe to place within your terrarium where you wish to control temperature from. Unit is complete with a plug to plug your heat source into.
What are HabiStat Temperature Thermostats used for?
Thermostats are well known to be some of the most important pieces of equipment for the vivarium. They are used purely as a prevention device to stop accidental overheating and to have a greater control of the enclosure temperature.
Temp stats operate as an on/off device, which simply means they switch off when they reach the desired temperature, and switch themselves back on again when the temperature starts to drop.
These devices have a dial knob centre which can easily be twisted with your fingers to the desired operating temperature.
Probe position is important and varies depending on the type of equipment you are using with the thermostat, the product manufacturer encloses additional instructions advising on the best position in each situation.
These devices are only suitable for use with heat mats and ceramic heaters. If you’re looking for something to use with basking bulbs, please see dimming thermostats.
Max load for unit is 600w.
