Default Re: Zoo Med Repti Temp Rheostat

I use the Zilla and it works perfectly. I have the 1000 watt and it has more than one outlet for multiple heaters. I have a Marchioro "Tommy 120" cage, basically 2 feet by 4 feet with one 150 watt ceramic emitter. The cage temperature stays within +/- 1 degree F. The Zilla controller also has a graduated dial with temperatures marked on the dial. I was surprised to find the markings on the dial are actually accurate. If you set the dial at 75 F that is the temperature it keeps the cage at. I also use a digital thermometer as well as an old glass type with red "mercury" in it.
