Frequently Asked Questions

Q. 
Q. 
Q. 
Q. 
Q.  What is the difference between a rheostat and a thermostat?
A.  A rheostat is basically a dimmer. It allows you to manually reduce the amount of power reaching a heater. A thermostat like the 500R senses the temperature and turns the heater on and off accordingly.


Q.  How many heating devices can be controled with this device?
A.  You can plug up to two heating devices into this temperature controller. Make sure the maximum wattage capability is not exceeded.


Q.  I am using a thermostat/ rheostat and the temperature is not rising.
A.  Thermostats and rheostats cannot increase the temperature a heat source is capable of putting out. Setting the thermostat/rheostat to the maximum temperature/ level will be as hot as the heat source itself will get.


Q.  Can I use the rheostat/thermostat with a Reptisun or Power Sun UV?
A.  These lamps need specific line voltages; they cannot be used with dimmers/rheostats.
