Thermostat 100W

100W Electronic ON/OFF Thermostat

Reptiles are ectotherm, and use heat from an external source to thermoregulate their optimal body temperature. Most reptiles use direct radiant heat from the sun in combination with conductive heat from sun-heated surfaces such as branches, rocks or other heat accumulating structures. Providing such an appropriate, species related, temperature gradient in the terrarium is an important factor in successful reptile keeping. With the Exo Terra 100W Electronic ON/OFF Thermostat you can create a well-controlled heating system that allows you to maintain the required temperature conditions similar to those found in a desert or tropical environment.

The Thermostat will also help to prevent overheating and undercooling during hot summer days or cold winter nights. The electronic Triac switch keeps the temperature at the desired setpoint with a much higher accuracy compared to conventional thermostats and virtually eliminates temperature swings in the terrarium. Simply connect your Heat Mat, Heat Cable or Ceramic Heater to the Exo Terra ON/OFF Thermostat, set the preferred temperature and place the heat sensor in the desired spot. The Red LED heat indicator will light up when the heating device is ON and will shut off once the desired temperature has been reached. The recessed dial of the thermostat will prevent accidental temperature change if the device is being handled. The Thermostat comes with a 3.6 foot / 110cm power-cord with grounded plug & receptacle for increased safety and to allow the use of a power outlet strip. The waterproof remote sensor can be safely used in highly moist terrariums and aquatic environments.

The Exo Terra® Thermostat should be set according to the needs of the animals. Thoroughly research the preferred optimum temperature range (POTR) for your specific reptile, so you can create the correct temperature gradients inside the terrarium to allow your reptiles to thermoregulate.

Prevents Overheating.

Reptiles are ectotherm, and use heat from an external source to thermoregulate their optimal body temperature. Most reptiles use direct radiant heat from the sun in combination with conductive heat from sun-heated surfaces such as branches, rocks or other heat accumulating structures. Providing the correct species related temperature gradient, in combination with appropriate humidity levels, in the terrarium is an important factor in successful reptile and amphibian keeping. With the Exo Terra® Thermostats you can create a well-controlled 24-hour heating system that allows you to maintain the required temperature conditions similar to those found in a desert or tropical environment. The Exo Terra® Thermostats will also help to prevent overheating and undercooling during hot summer days or cold winter nights

Extremely Accurate & reliable.

All our Exo Terra® Thermostats haven been designed to prevent accidental temperature changes by using a recessed dial or double-action push button/dial system, depending on the Thermostat type. They also feature surge protection, MCU protection, a built-in fuse and come with a memory IC in case there’s any issues with the electricity network. The memory IC stores the last settings in case of a power cut, and assures that when the power returns, the Thermostat automatically switches to the correct time, temperature, and humidity settings. 

Simplified Set-up.

The Exo Terra® Thermostats are available with ON/OFF, Dimming, Pulse Proportional and Hygrostat modes, and keep the temperature at the desired set-point with a much higher accuracy than conventional thermostats and virtually eliminate temperature swings in the terrarium. An independent lab test shows that the Exo Terra® Thermostats are the most accurate Thermostats on the market.
