Vivarium Electronics VE-300 Thermostat (Reptile Basics)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The VE-300 is an upgraded version of the previous thermostats, and has the added benefit of battery backup and several alarm options that alert the reptile keeper to errors, including the sensor failure alarm (which sounds when the probe fails), the temperature overshoot alarm (sounds when the set temperature is exceeded by at least 4 degrees), and the too long to setpoint alarm (which alerts the user when the heating device fails). The Vivarium Electronics Model VE-300 also has a built in night drop feature, which allows for a regular temperature drop to be set at night. The VE-300 can function as a pulse proportional or on/off thermostat.



About This Product

This proportional thermostat is a "table top" model designed to sit nicely on top of your racks or cages- no more trying to figure out how to mount your thermostat so you can see it or dealing with stands. The single outlet is easily expanded with the use of an outlet strip. The standard display shows current set point value, current time of day, and the current probe temperature reading.

3 button keyboard makes it ultra easy to navigate through the menu and the large back-lit display makes programming easy and intuitive. One of the features we like best is the stacking cases! These thermostats will stack on each other for a very neat, professional appearance. Both the probe and fuse are easily user replaceable without opening the case. Probe cord locks in place to prevent accidental unplugging. 6' power cord and Probe included.

We DO NOT recommend this thermostat for use with incandescent light bulbs.
