Many people prefer to build their own incubators. This is a fun do-it-yourself project. We’ve found that the biggest difficulty people run into while developing their incubators is being able to find a reliable heat source and thermostat. We’ve solved this problem by creating the IncuKit™ series thermostat fan heaters.
We have created the IncuKit™ DC to turn any small container into an incubator. This provides the heat, air circulation and thermostat control you need to accurately control the environment in your container for hatching eggs.
The IncuKit™ DC comes with a proportional thermostat, built-in 40 watt heater, and a built-in fan. The proportional thermostat varies the amount of power that is supplied to the heater instead of simply turning the heater off and on. This provides more accurate temperature control than a standard off/on thermostat. The thermostat also comes preset to 99.5 degrees F which can be easily adjusted if necessary. The digital display makes it easy to read the current temperature and to make changes. The IncuKit™ DC operates on low 12 Volt DC power and includes an AC-to-DC converter that works with both 110/120v and 220/240v power input. An optional DC turner motor can easily be added which is controlled by the control module and is fully adjustable. In case of power outages the IncuKit™ DC can also be powered with a 12V battery (additional battery connectors required).
As always, all of our products are covered by our One-year Hassle-free Guarantee. Purchase today with no worries and experience the IncuKit™ DC for yourself.
How to determine the appropriate size container for the IncuKit DC:
There are several factors that determine how much power will be required to heat your container up to the appropriate temperature to hatch eggs. The size of the container, how well it is insulated, the room temperature and how much the room temperature fluctuates will all have a significant impact. The best way to determine if the IncuKit™ DC is the right size for your container is pretty simple. Just put a 40 watt light bulb in your container (ensure it is thermally insulated since they get pretty hot!) and measure how warm your container gets. If it easily gets to at least 100 degrees F, then the IncuKit™ DC should work. It is the user’s responsibility to determine if this will generate enough heat for your container.
