I put the probe on my cool side and set it for 81°. Then I adjust wattage or height of the basking bulb for basking temp.Ok, I would be able to put it on 1 side of my enclosure to monitor temps there. Then my basking would be on the other side. Would that work.
Can this unit be set for night temps and different day temps?Yes. The one probe uses the differential you set to turn on/off both heat and cooling outlets.
Polarity wouldn't matter for heat if just a CHE, panel, or bulb. But if a fan is incorporated in heat or cooling - could run a fan backwards. All my plugs have polarity prongs so haven't really tried it.
No. You would need two to do that There are more than expensive thermostats that have night drop but you could use two of these for less money. You would need another CHE for the second thermostat and set up one set at your night temp min. Then set up the other for your day temp min - but have it on a timer set for your “ day” period.Can this unit be set for night temps and different day temps?
Looks like I’m going to order one today but just for the little (almost 6 year-old) leopard I’ve just acquired. Definitely not anything as specific as what you’re looking for.I have no made the incubator yet, but, I am using one in a hovabator. I don’t like the temp swings it allows. Goes on at it kicks off at 88, and then will not kick back on till 87 then goes to 90 before it kicks off. I will have to get a better one for the incubator
