Finnex MAX-300: The Economy Heater Controller
 
Hello PT members. These arrived in yesterday and figured I'd give them a quick introduction. These controllers are for heaters equal to or under 300 watts. An affordable add on to protect all your precious live stock from heaters that accidentally stick on!

Finnex MAX-300

Digital Temperature Controller for Aquarium Heaters
-Precision Digital Control
-LED Heating Indicator and Current Temperature Thermometer

-Over Heating Protection
-Safely Monitors Heaters up to 300 Watts.


Over heating heaters is a hobbyist nightmare. To protect your aquarium investment and live stock, this heater controller is a must. The digital controller maintains your heater within a safe temperature providing a healhty and stable temperature for your aquarium. Automatic shut off over heat protection will alert it's internal sound alarm and cease the heating process. A temperature probe is included to ensure a more accurate aquarium temperature reading. The three prong power receptacle works well with other compatible heating elements equal to or less than 300 Watts. Add a controller for double heating protection!

Would this work the opposite way (i.e I plug a fan in it).

With the electronic controls, what will it do in the event of a power outage once the power comes back on?

Hey Toby

I'm sorry but this unit will not work with a fan. The HC-800U will power a fan but I'm not sure how you would reverse it (ie power would only be on when you're trying to raise the temp).

I don't see why it wouldn't same brand and all, but I figure it never hurts to ask before purchasing!
