Author Topic: Incubators and Hatchers Wiring  (Read 1919 times)
« on: May 16, 2007, 01:33:58 PM »

This topic may have been blasted over and over but since I am always in the bird house never get forums much.

Looking for wiring diagrams to wire dual or triple wafers (that is for backup to primary failed or zone control) Likewise for digital controls.  Need to quickly make incub/hatcher. Throwing 1200-1500 RN pheasant eggs over fence a week because unexpected perdiction of amount of eggs coming.

Thanks in advance.

Are you looking for wiring up a redundant wafer thermostat? If so, you'd put them in parallel - run the hot wire to both of them and out of them both to the heating element - that way they both have to be ON for the element to be on, either one of them turns off, the other wafer completes the circuit until it too turns off.

Hope this helps.  Please be careful.

Thanks for the return.  The reduntcy is Yes for backup.Thats what I had thought was to put in parallel but what I was doubting when I qrote the question was the fact the current being split between the two or more elements (these will be larger cabinet hatchers) was the way they work with the elements themselves. I understand on the wafer snap switch the arcing should be less as 1/2 the current is directed through each contact prolonging the switch life.

At the same time has anyone redunant or zone control with electronic thermostats such in stripping them from Little Giants/Hoovabators, etc. (small scale incub.)? If so what luck and how were these wired?
