Installation & Use of

230 volt Controller, Sensor & 24 volt Elements for Queen Bee Incubation

  • Place the elements at the base of the cabinet and install cable through hole in back of cabinet

  • Place the controller on top of the cabinet.  Plug in the element cable to rear of controller.

  • Feed the temperature sensor through hole in back of cabinet and position approx 1/3 height from top. Use cable tie to attach to rack & keep sensor away from wall of cabinet.

  • Place 2 x 2 litre open containers filled with water on rack immediately above elements.

  • Connect 230 volt plug to mains power supply and switch on.

  • The digital display will indicate the actual temperature in the cabinet and when the pre-set operating temperature is reached, 32 degrees C will be maintained

  • The controller will do the rest as you’ve paid for the best!



  • Water containers require topping up weekly as evaporation occurs.

  • In the unlikely event of an extended power failure, place a hot water bottle in the cabinet, or store 4 –5 litres or more, of water in the cabinet to act as a heat store.  This will maintain a temperature of approximately 30°C for a several hours.
