Inkbird Heat Mat Controller - ITC-306-T
The Inkbird ITC306T heat mat controller is designed to work with the Inkbird Plus Heat Mat (also compatible with other brands of heat mats), to give you control over daytime and nightime temperatures for your plants. You can set different day and night temperatures and set the time for when you want the different temperatures to apply. This model can control either 1 or 2 heat mats off the same controller.
What's in the box?
The Inkbird ITC306T heat mat controller comes with the pre-wired controller unit and instruction booklet. The controller unit is 'plug and play' with no assembly required. The temperature sensor probe, NZ plug, and power box are all connected to the controller - with a 5 foot cord - ready to plug up to 2 heat mats in. Check the full specs below.
How to set up the Inkbird ITC306T controller
I have to say I found the directions (included in the box), really confusing, but this video below was a big help. Watch from 2:46 onwards. I'll email you a link to this video after you order also. Much easier :)
Specs & functions
Once you figure out the set-up (watch the video above once you get your controller as I found the instructions really confusing), it's straight-forward.
- Plug-and-play. Everything's already hard-wired, no assembly needed.
- Set 2 different temperatures during a 24 hour period.
- Set the time range each temperature applies.
- Choose to display temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
- Dual-display shows you current and set temperature (PV and SV). The temperature it's currently set to turn on is SV (set value), and the temperature the sensor is currently reading is PV (process value).
- Input cord from the NZ plug to the controller is 5 feet (1.5 metres) and output power cord from the controller to the power board is 1 foot (30 cms). Sensor cord length is 1.9 metres.
- The 'Work' buttons light up when the controller has turned the heat mat/s on.
- Built-in alarm beeps to alert you when the probe detects the temperature's gone outside your preferred settings or if the heat mat isn't working (if you don't want the alarm to beep you can effectively 'turn off' this feature by setting the high and low alerts much higher and lower than the temperature range will realistically get in the area, in which case I'd highly recommend you get a digital thermometer to keep an eye on temperature as a back-up).
- 12 month warranty.
What to expect
When you look these controllers up online it's predominantly rave reviews. However they aren't top-of-the-range by any means, you can certainly spend way more, so you do get what you pay for, and they do have some downsides. Have a read of the Amazon reviews here before you buy.
