Pulse thermostats are a superior alternative to using on/off thermostats and should be used with non-light emitting heat sources only. Maximum load of 600w.
These thermostats are superior to ordinary on/off thermostats as they provide a constant warmth when in use by pulsating at the desired temperature.
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.
If you keep species of reptile that require higher basking temperatures then we'd advise purchasing a HabiStat Pulse Proportional Thermostat High Range instead as they are calibrated for a higher temperature range.
Please note that these thermostats are not suitable for use with basking bulbs as they will just turn the lamp on and off until it blows.
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.
