The unit at the bottom (0-40 degrees) is the same as the one I bought from a brew shop about6 mths ago and I paid $105.00 it works a treat but I wish I had paid $60.00 like the one above.
Linz you are a T.A.B. One of the best.... that is brilliant.... who would of thort of looking for 'brewing fridge controllers' under 'Tropical Diamond Python, supplies and equipment'. D'oh!! <_< No wonder I never find the cheap stuff... I only look for brewing equipment under "Brewing".... idiot!!
Thanks heaps.... not ready to buy it just yet but looking forward to the fact that I told the missus it would cost a bit over a hundred.... wonder what I am going to buy with the extra fifty...
Some of us need to turn a heat source on. I have a little Jaycar thermostat in a non-working fridge. It is wired to some light-globes at the bottom of the fridge.
I set the temp guage, and during winter when it drops too low, on go the light globes to bring the temp back up. The fridge keeps it insulated so the globes are on for a short time each day which cuts the power costs (as opposed to a heat belt). Works great for me.
The thermostat works both ways, in that it can open a circuit if it gets too cold, or open another if it gets too warm. In theory you could mount it in a working fridge, with the same light globe set up in the bottom.
I have bought oneof these thermostats (that040). does anyone else have one? I recall Batz having one??
What is the thermostat model? the one I have is set to always on. it is a cotherm model thermostat. it is used for holding a warm environment - for snakes.
Great for cold weather, but i live in the tropics.....
any help or ideas would be well appreciated.
Can the thermostat be changed for a normally off, or both? :huh:
