DBS-1000 with STANDARD CORDS: The DBS-1000 thermostat with standard cords (2 prong) 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.  
 DBS-1000 with GROUNDED CORDS: The DBS-1000 thermostat with grounded cords (3 prong) 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 TRIGGER DEVICES: 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.  
 TEMPERATURE 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. 
Note 1: New “2021 Black Connector Plug Probes” will replace any Early ( Pre 2021) “White Connector plug Probes”, OR even Earlier “Red Connector Plug Probes”. And, when switching to Black Connector Plug Probes, it will require a New Updated E-Prom/Software to be swapped in. We will offer options for New 2021 Replacement Probes with, and without, New E-Proms.
Note 2: If your Pre-2021 DBS-1000 needs a DBS-1000 Replacement Temperature Probe, and you don’t feel comfortable swapping 28 pin E-Proms by yourself, Helix will perform all the updates, E-Prom and Probe installations free of Labor charges. Return trip postage to send it back to you, and replacement New Probe and E-Prom cost, is all we need to arrange and collect. As an added service, we will also at the same time upgrade any interior components that need upgrading to be at current production component standards, internal upgrades parts and labor are completed for free.
