Product information

The lighting of your terrarium depends on the light requirements of your animals:
- Do your animals need a lot or little light?
- Do your animals need UV radiation or not?
- Do your animals need a different temperature during the day and during the night?
- How far away are your animals from the light source?

By answering these questions, you can decide which type of lamp and possibly additional heating mat your animals need. Lamps such as the JBL Reptil Day Halogen are ideal for illuminating terrariums with plants. If the animals require additional UV light, an additional JBL UV-Spot Plus or a JBL L-U-W lamp will be necessary. These also simultaneously produce heat. For animals not in need of UV light, such as many amphibians, the JBL Reptil Day Halogen or JBL LED Daylight are ideal and may, depending on the animal, need to be supplemented with heat-generating technology. For amphibians from colder regions simply omit the heat-generating technology.

FAQ
Do I need a separate ballast for these lamps?

No, this lamp is directly installed to a lamp holder (e.g. JBL TempSet) and connected to the power outlet without additional ballast.

Is the ReptilDay spotlight suitable for terrariums with dimmable mounting? In other words, is it dimmable?

As with all filament lightings the ReptilSpot spotlights are suitable for dimming. Please note that the dimming does however reduce its lifespan. For this reason we don’t recommend a dimming but suggest you use spots with lower wattage.

How long is the service life of the JBL ReptilDay Halogen?

The spotlights are designed for an average service life of 2,000 hours. This is a lighting time of 10 hours per day for about 6.5 months.

Do the die JBL ReptilDay Halogen units have a short service life?

No, the fundamental problem is the increased stress the lighting units are subjected to. This is mainly due to the following factors:

1) High temperature: a too small ventilation system often leads to an accumulation of heat. This in turn results in increased material fatigue.

2) High humidity: This alone does not lead to a reduced service life of the lamp. But very often there is also the splashing water factor. If splashing water hits the warm lighting this also causes material fatigue.

3) Voltage fluctuations in the mains: Basically the service life of filament lamps is dependent of the mains voltage. According to the region and the energy supplier, frequent mains fluctuations can lead to a reduction of the life service.

4) Time switches: Many “value for money” timers switch off just one phase of the current, while the mains voltage continues to run on the other phase. It is hard to tell which phase the circuit is connected to. Better would be a timer on a dual-phase switch-off basis to increase the service life of the lighting.

5) Electrical installation: should be carried out properly. Unsafely connected wires (e.g. in the ceramic sockets) can lead to a reduced service life. It is important to consider what kind of ceramic socket to use for the spotlight and how to install the ceramic socket. A skewing of the statutorily prescribed strain relief can also lead to problems with the lighting.

Lighting in the Terrarium

As cold-blooded animals, terrarium animals are far more de pendent on light, i.e. the quality and intensity of light, than warm-blooded vertebrates. Activity, feeding, digestion or resting phases are influenced by the alternation of day and night, and especially by the intensity of light.
