Standard Cord: The DBS-1000 thermostat with standard cords is the option most widely used by pet owners, as most commonly used heat sources do not have a grounded power cord and therefore don’t require grounded cords on the thermostat.   Grounded Cord: The DBS-1000 thermostat with grounded cords is typically used for any heat source with a grounded power cord.  The grounded cord option is primarily used with metal racks that utilize a heating device comprised of Mylar heat tape wrapped in aluminum or sheet metal.  Also, some cages and rack systems use a heat cable with a grounded power cord.   Night Drop Controls Used for simulating a drop in temperature at night.  Each DBS-1000 has a two temperature capability with full set-point range for each mode.  All that is needed is a night-drop trigger device.  We offer the following two types;  The Photo Electric Control Module which changes the set-point according to light changes, and the Appliance Timer Adapter Cord which changes the set point according to the programmed time.   Probes The Helix DBS-1000 has a customer replaceable probe that is made with a digital sensor instead of a Thermistor.  Helix Digital sensor offers superior safety features. They are never able to wander or be inaccurate due to probe conductor damage which can cause a Thermistor based control system to overheat or under heat intermittently.   Acrylic Stand DBS-1000 on Acrylic Stand on Cage The Helix Acrylic Stand is angled approximately 10° and can be mounted to angle back for lower cages or forward for mounting on cages at eye-level or above. Each DBS-1000 system comes with an Acrylic Stand.
