Low Cost Electronic Thermostat for Egg Incubators
Low cost electronic thermostat for egg incubators
Today we are testing samples of a brand new thermostat that we hope to start selling very soon. This thermostat provides a mid-ground between the bi-metal mechanical thermostats and the digital electronic thermostats that we sell. Here are the specifications for this new thermostat:
- -110 Volt AC (Sorry no 220 Volt version yet)
- -Heater Indicator Light
- -Temperature Control Range Switch (Narrow or Wide)
- -Easy turn temperature adjustment shaft
- -Solid State Electronic Controls (No Mechanical Switching)
Probably the most unique feature of this thermostat is the Temperature Control Range Switch. If you have ever used the Little Giant 9200 or 10200 egg incubator you will understand the value of this feature. In order to accommodate reptiles and bird eggs you need a thermostat that will control temperatures in the 80’s for reptiles and near 99.5 for birds. This large control range on your thermostat makes it very difficult to make small changes to your temperature. This low cost electronic thermostat for egg incubators has a temperature control range switch with two selections (Narrow and Wide). When the thermostat is set to Narrow the control range is very small around 99.5, this makes it very easy to make small changes to the temperature inside the incubator. When the thermostat is set to Wide the control range is larger (around 75-110 degrees F), this allows this thermostat to be used for reptile incubation, fermentation, sprouting, yogurt making, and anything that needs a low cost electronic thermostat.
