Choose from the following 4 types of Habistat Thermostat...
The sophisticated HabiStat Dimming Thermostat is designed specifically for controlling light bulbs.
The Dimming Thermostat is one of the most accurate methods of temperature control and whilst it is perfect for controlling light bulbs, it can be used on almost any heaters.
Unlike other HabiStat Thermostats, it does require a minimum load of 40 watts, but has a maximum capacity of 600 watts at 230 volts.
This is the only thermostat we recommend for use with incandescent light bulbs. It uses the latest technology and operates in a manner similar to the Pulse Proportional Thermostat.
Instead of pulses of power being supplied to the heater, it is supplied with a continuous variable supply of power or voltage. In principle this has a similar effect to light dimmers or rheostats in your home.
The HabiStat Pulse Thermostat is ideal for controlling higher power ceramic heaters and for heat mats.
A normal thermostat switches a heater on full power until the set temperature is achieved. It then switches the heater off completely until the temperature drops below the set value, when the cycle starts over again. The gap between the heater being switched on and then off is called hysteresis. It is between these points that the accuracy of the controller is assessed.
The pulse proportional thermostat pulses electricity to the heater all the time, resulting in constant and very accurately managed warmth.
The HabiStat Temperature Thermostat is an on/ off thermostat that is ideal for controlling the temperature of heat mats and other heaters up to a maximum load of 600 watts.
With an accurate dial calibrated in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, the HabiStat Temperature Thermostat is easy to use and available in black or white.
Please note 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 emitting heat sources use HabiStat Dimming Thermostats.
Mat Stat Thermostat
The HabiStat Mat Stat is an on/off thermostat that is ideal for controlling the temperature of heat mats and other low powered heaters up to a maximum load of 300 watts.
When switched on the power indicator will shine and when the heat source is switched on the heat indicator will shine. Please note 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 emitting heat sources use a HabiStat dimming thermostat.
