ITC-308 Home Brewing Temperature Controller by Inkbird

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

  • Convenient Design: Plug and play, easy to use.
  • Support reading with Centigrade or Fahrenheit unit.
  • Maximum output load: 1100W(110V).
  • Dual Relay Output – Be able to connect with refrigeration and heating equipment at the same time.
  • Dual Display Window – Be able to display measured temperature and set temperature at the same time.

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 or Celsius.  Dual Display shows both measured and set temperature.

Use in conjunction with compatible heating and/or cooling devices (usually a freezer or a refrigerator) to help control fermentation or kegerator temperatures. This is a great controller!  Check out my extensive Hands on Review of the ITC-308.  That includes loads of information including a walk through of all settings.

    [HBF Editors Note – this comment is from Anne Huang – an employee of Inkbird the manufacturer of this temperature controller] – Thanks for your concern about Inkbird temperature controller. Inkbird Tech always listen customers feedback and improve our items well from you. Now we have improve this issue. When the alarm is on, the unit can trigger the cooling or heating element at the same time. Please note it.

      Is it possible to apply this fix to my current unit? Because this would be great! I could probably find a couple different uses for the unit as well.

    I have one of these and am very satisfied with it. It works at least as well as similar units that cost twice as much. I was even able to calibrate the temperature probe with my thermapen as a reference.

    One note: if you set a temperature alarm, high or low, the unit won’t trigger the cooling or heating elements until the alarm is cleared. So I don’t recommend using this alarm feature. But it holds temps in the target range exceedingly well anyhow, so I guess I haven’t needed the alarm feature.
