More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • US ETL Certificate Listed and Warranty. ITC-608T thermostat temperature and humidity controller is ETL listed, and rigorously tested for quality control and safety. The unit itself has 2 years warranty. (The temperature and humidity sensor have 1 year warranty.)
  • Three in one Multifunctional Temperature and Humidity Control Mode with Dual Relay Output. ITC-608T can work as a temperature controller, a humidity controller, a temperature and humidity controller. First, only plug temperature sensor with cooling and heating equipment. Second, only plug humidity sensor with humidifier and dehumidifier equipment. Third, plug both temperature and humidity sensor with cooling/heating and humidifier/dehumidifier equipment.
  • Supporting calibration, compressor delay and saving reset setting values. Centigrade or Fahrenheit degree display, easy to set, PV and SV dual display windows. And with compressor delay for protecting cooling device. ITC-608T can save the original setting values in case accidentally power-off.
  • More power up to 1800W. Temperature control range is -40-212°F(-40-100℃), humidity display range is 5 -99.0%RH. Max Loading: 120V 15A 1800W. Temperature senor is waterproof while humidity sensor is not.
  • Multifunctional usage. Temperature and humidity controller ITC-608T can be used in home brewing (refrigerator), fermenting, Greenhouse, terrarium, reptile, planting (mushroom), meat storage and cooking.

“Temp and humidity controller ITC-608T has certificate of ETL (US and Canada approved). The product will be safer when using. ITC-608T has multifunctional control mode. It can control both temp and humidity at the same time. (Plug both temp and humidity sensor). Or control single temp and has 12 different time stage periods for temp control mode. Or only control humidity with plug humidity sensor. This unit supports both F and C degree, compress delay, calibration and reset setting values saving. Heating/Cooling differential function could be set separately for refrigeration and heating to protect temp controller from violent change. Same as humidity control.”

 

This is a digital dual stage pre-wired temp control with 12 timers and a humidity sensor and controller. The temp controller part of this is pretty straightforward.  As homebrewers we’d usually use that with a heating and/or cooling device for fermentation temp control or as part of a kegerator.

Dual stage means this can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

I would say that 1,800 Watt is a higher capacity than many of the homebrew controllers out there.

The humidity part could be handy for judging whether your Eva Dry (or similar) needs recharged.  See: Damp Kegerator? Fix Kegerator Condensation.  I suppose you could also control an appropriate electronic dehumidifier.  It’s my understanding that if you plug in the optional humidity sensor the temperature controller portion is limited to one stage – heating or cooling.  That may not be a bad thing as the only scenario I think this could be helpful in the homebrew context is a kegerator and most of the time you’ll probably only use one stage (cooling) anyway for a kegerator.  My guess is that most homebrewers will not have a need for the humidity feature of this controller.

Note: This product has multiple variations – choose between multiple sensor options (temperature and/or humidity).  I would guess that most homebrewers would be interested in the temperature sensor only version and that is the version that’s linked below.

Hands on Review: Inkbird C909 1,500 Watt Digital Temperature Controller

I’ve used an Inkbird Dual Stage Temperature Controller, model ITC-308 for years on my fermentation deep freeze and have loved it.  Check out my Hands on Review of that game-changing controller.

As part of a move and a resulting kegerator update and refresh, I decided to replace my old temp controller (from a now defunct manufacturer) and ended up settling on Inkbird’s single stage C909.  That model was attractive because I’ve been extremely happy with Inkbird’s gear and I really like the fact that it plugs directly into an AC socket.  The wall I now have my kegerator on has no studs to mount a controller.  Because this is an Outlet Thermostat, the C909 solves that.

Note that the C909 is a swiss army knife of sorts, it has several different modes of operation including – timer, temperature controller, humidity sensor and cooking thermometer.  The C909 recognizes which probe type is plugged in (defaults to timer mode with no probe) and automatically switches to that mode.  For this review, I will be discussing the temperature control mode only.

Why Use an Over-Riding Temperature Controller?

Refrigerators and chest freezers are designed to do particular tasks.  As homebrewers, fermenters and home kegerator owners, we are asking these devices to do slightly different things and operate in different temperature ranges than built in thermostats allow for.  Over-riding temp controllers cycle power on and off to give you more fine tuned control.  This allows you to convert a chest freezer into a kegerator or fermentation chamber.

Hands On Review: Inkbird ITC-308 Dual Stage Temperature Controller

cln_pliny

Inkbird’s Itc-308 Digital Temperature Controller Outlet Thermostat is a dual stage, pre-wired Digital Temperature Controller

Temperature controllers, sometimes referred to as over-riding thermostats, can control devices like refrigerators, freezers and fermentation heating devices to provide a consistent temperature for your kegerator, fermentation chamber or brew system. They do this by monitoring the temperature and cycling on and off the device in question. Generally, you will set the device to full cooling or heating power and the temperature controller takes over from there.

Dual stage means that the Itc-308 can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.  Dual Display shows both measured and set temperature.

Here’s a hands on review of the ITC-308 temperature controller.
