Product information

Easy monitoring
Depending on the origin and species the terrarium animals need specific humidity and temperature conditions for an ideal keeping. These can easily be checked with Terra Control Solar.

Terra Control Solar
The Terra Control Solar, a digital thermometer and hygrometer, ensures a convenient checking of temperature and relative humidity in the terrarium. The power is supplied by a solar cell. A buffer battery ensures the display is visible after the light is switched off.

Convenient to mount
Terra Control Solar can easily be fixed with a double sided adhesive tape at the desired place. The mounting plate can be fixed on the left or right side of the thermometer/hygrometer, as required. Tip: because warm air rises, the use of 2 devices is recommended; one device at the bottom and the other one in the upper area.

Large temperature and humidity measuring range
Temperature range: -30 to +50 °C. Humidity range: 20 to 99 % relative humidity – HIGH PRECISION – From 0 to + 30 °C: +/- 1 °C Other temperature range: +/- 3 ° humidity: +/- 5 %
