The VE-200 features include:

  • Convenient table top mounting
  • Full back-lit display 
  • Displays probe temp and set point on main display
  • Hi/Lo History
  • Night Drop capability (ND Module Required)
  • Remembers settings during power failure
  • Built in Safety Shutoff relay
  • Grounded receptacle
  • 700 watt capacity with user replaceable fuse (Spare fuse included!)
  • 10' probe cord- user replaceable
  • 6' Power Cord
  • Stackable!  Multiple units can stack for neat, professional appearance
  • Pulse Proportional, Dimming Proportional OR On/Off capable

This proportional thermostat is a "table top" model designed to sit nicely on top of your racks or cages- no more trying to figure out how to mount your thermostat so you can see it or dealing with stands.

The standard display shows current set point value, current time of day, and the current probe temperature reading.  3 button keyboard makes it ultra easy to navigate through the menu and the large back-lit display makes programming easy and intuitive.

One of the features we like best is the stacking cases!  These thermostats will stack on each other for a very neat, professional appearance.

Both the probe and fuse are easily user replaceable without opening the case.  Probe cord locks in place to prevent accidental unplugging.  6' power cord and Probe included. 

We now recommend this thermostat for use with incandescent light bulbs (Dimming Mode) and other reptile heaters (Pulse or Dimming Mode).

Ve 200
Hey guys this is Tony with Hightower‘s exotics First of all let me just say reptile basics is absolutely amazing with their shipping and getting stuff to you on time absolutely amazing super fast I’m super stoked to be a part of this family now. now to the thermostat I have run several different kinds of thermostats and I have found that the VE 200 it’s perfect for us and our set up very simple to use I actually stepped away from the VE to get another very popular name brand that I will not mention and it has failed only several times I finally got it straightened out but it makes me nervous so I went ahead and purchased two more of these for back ups I just feel like these are made for the simple guy are used to run night drunk I don’t see the need in it anymore so I don’t even worry about the whole night drop thing so it doesn’t bother me I set my temperature is where I want them and I’ll let it go. I feel real confident in these thermostats they are well-made and they serve its purpose wealth thanks again reptile basics super stoked by the way I’m running these thermostats for my ball python. Come by and see you sometime and Hightowers exotics On Facebook and Instagram
