Simple Setup Product Review by PHILLIP STRETZ (Posted on 3/14/12)

Excellent!

Comments: This unit (I have 2) has made it simple to setup a chiller/heater without the tedious process of adjusting the units so there is no conflict thus saving energy. It eleminates the need to constantly readjust my heater since it is not digital.

Just what I needed Product Review by LEONARD PAPAGNO (Posted on 4/1/11)

Excellent!

Comments: I received this on the 30th of March and had it up and running the next day. After one days use I can say that it does what it's supposed to do and that's to keep your water temperature at a consistent level. My tank is staying around 76 degrees right now and once I figure out how to program the thing I will keep it at 78 degrees. The instructions are a little less than helpful, I mean it tells you what to do, but doesn't really explain or give you an example of how to it.
I am use a fan above my tank to keep it cool as it is cheaper than running a chiller. When I was running the fan constantly I was having to add about 2 gallons of water a day to make up for the evaporation, but with the temperature controller running all day I don't have to add any water tonight and my tank is nice and cool. Plus with this much control I don't have wide temperature swings like I did before the controller. My tank would go from 77 to 71 degrees in a day with the constant blowing fan. Now it only fluctuates a couple degrees. So I would highly recommend you get this controller, you will not be sorry.

Wonderful! A Must Have! Product Review by LOGAN (Posted on 5/2/09)

Excellent!

Comments: I have been an Aquarist for years now. I have worked with world/class live-support specialists specializing in Reef and Jellyfish systems. This Dual-Stage controller does exactly what it says it will do, it allows for pinpoint control of both a heater and a chiller.

There are many benefits of this product, two of which are the Ozone resistant probe and easy to use interface. Another benefit of all dual-stage controllers is that ability to use the heater as a last result. This means that the heater is not on until it is absolutely needed. this is often difficult with the analog control on most heaters. This means that the heater is off when your tank is within the ideal temp range making the duration of time the chiller is off significantly longer, saving electricity and giving you a quiet experience.

Comments: This instrument system is the best one I have got for controling the temperature in optimum grade.
It is so precise for changeing between heater and fan for keep the rigt temperature.

works well Product Review by ANDRE (Posted on 7/19/10)

Great!

Comments: The dual stage controller works as advertised. The slight drawbacks are that the potentiometers that are used to set the temp limits can be finicky and the settings tend to drift a bit. Also, the BNC connector for the temp probe itself is quite sensitive to any movement. Shifting the device around can cause a fair swing in the temp reading by several degrees and can take a minute or 2 to settle out again. All in all, it operates my heater and chiller exactly as I have it programmed.
