The Prime range of thermostats are at the cutting edge of thermostat
technology using the latest software and hardware to allow the user even
greater control of their vivarium than ever before.
The Prime range allows the user to select control types of Dimming, Pulse or
On/Off and also allows control of non heating/cooling devices for example
lighting or misting equipment.
To add even more flexibility the way the 24 hour period is controlled is
completely user definable with options for a constant temperature
throughout 24hours or options for day/night setting or even up to 8
different temperatures throughout a 24 hour period to allow you to create
an extremely natural environment for you reptile on each channel.
The Prime range have USB built into the unit which allows the user to setup
the thermostat extremely easily, monitor the thermostat from a computer and
pull historical data from the thermostat using the data logging facility.
The computer software can be downloaded from www.microclimate.co.uk.
The Prime range are also fully user updatable via the computer software
that means that when new features become available you can download the
latest software and keep your unit up to date all in a very simple process.
There are 3 different methods of thermostat control on the prime thermostat.
Dimming - The thermostat varies the power output to control at the set temp.
Pulse - The thermostat pulses power to the heater to maintain the temp.
on/off - The thermostat switches the power on and off around a set point.
There are 3 types of control available on the prime
Heating - Heating thermostat
Fixed - Fixed output (used for on/off timed control) or constant output level
Cooling - Cooling thermostat
There are 4 different timing modes that can be set on the prime per channel.
Constant - A single constantly outputted setting.
Day & Night - Different temperatures set for night and day.
Multi- Up to 8 different settings throughout the 24hr period
Periodic - Output can be triggered at intervals throughout the 24 hr period.
The ramp time controls how fast the thermostat reacts to temperature change
for example when switching from night to day mode.
The longer the ramp time
the longer the transition between the 2 set temperatures giving a smoother
All Prime thermostats are designed and manufactured in the UK and carry a 5 year warranty.
