Sophisticated Dimming thermostat, 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.
In order to sucessfully keep reptiles in captivity you need to provide the correct thermal gradient for the species kept, in order for it to thrive. Without a thermostat you have no control over the thermal gradient within your vivarium which will fluctuate with the ambient temparature, depending on the time of year.
We therfore always recommend the use of thermostats.
