Similiar to the HabiStat Dimming Thermostat but calibrated to suit a higher temperature range. Maximum load of 600w.
If you own any sort of exotic pet then thermostats are one of the most important pieces of heating equipment you can purchase. They protect your pet from accidental overheating and give you complete control over vivarium temperatures.
These thermostats are designed specifically for controlling basking bulbs, but can be used to control any other type of heating device such as heat mats or ceramic heaters. Dimming thermostats work by a continous but variable supply of power.
These devices have a control knob which can 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.
High Range thermostats most suit desert species of reptile such as a Bearded Dragons and are calibrated for a higher temperature range. For most non-desert species then a HabiStat Dimming Thermostat is sufficient and the High Range model is not required.
We would advise not to rely 100% on the calibration setting of any thermostat, this can vary depending on the probe position and it's good husbandry practice to manually check the temperature with a digital thermometer.
