This dimmer comes with two plug sockets a male and a female making their use very easy.
Dimming thermostat heat mat.
Prorep heat mats have been tested with all microclimate thermostats.
In our store we tend to use them for our tortoise and chameleon enclosures to keep the basking area at the perfect temperature.
The push button dial system of the thermostat will prevent accidental changes of the set temperature if the device is being handled.
The first consideration you ll need to make is what type of heater you ll be controlling with your thermostat.
Many mats now come with a built in thermostat controller but you ll be better off getting a standalone thermostat to manage things in a more reliable way.
From 10 c up to 60 c 50 f 140 f red led and heating symbol will indicate when heating device is on.
Simply connect your heat mat heat cable ceramic heater or 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.
Controls heating devices up to 600w.
Dimming pulse proportional function controls terrarium temperatures very accurately.
Always control heat mats with the appropriate thermostat.
In other words if you connect a ceramic heater the thermostat will send just enough power or reduce the flow of electricity just enough to maintain the perfect temperature.
A heat mat can be controlled with a dimming thermostat if the combined load with more than one heater attached exceeds 40 watts.
Heat mat and strips can be used with on off dimmer or pulse proportional thermostats.
With a reliable single output capable of sustaining reptile heating equipment up to 600 watts minimum 40w the habistat dimming thermostat is perfect for heat bulbs basking bulbs and even just light bulbs ensuring your reptile gets both the heat and light it requires to thermos regulate metabolise and digest their food efficiently contributing to their overall health and wellbeing.
The habistat dimming thermostat is designed for controlling light bulbs providing one of the most accurate methods of temperature control.
Push button dial system to avoid accidental setting or tampering.
The exo terra dimming thermostat has a pulse proportional function.
For the most accurate temperature control a pulse proportional or dimming thermostat should be used.
If you want a constant surface temperature for example a hatchling snake rack then the pulse proportional offers very accurate control and a continually warm mat rather than a hot cold cycle.
Though the dimming thermostat can also be used with heat mats or ceramic heaters it won t be quite as effective as a pulse thermostat so we would only really use this for basking light.
Daytime and nighttime temperature can be set separately.
