Vestibule w/Control Panel and Heat


SKU: BF-003 Category:

The Fortress Vestibule accepts (2) 50-watt electric heaters, which mount to the underside of the Vestibule Pan. These heaters are controlled by a digital thermostat installed in the weather-tite Control Box. The Control Box actually mounts to the Foundation, and heater wiring passes from the Control Box through the back of the Vestibule to the heaters.

Also included in the Control Box is a 3-position toggle switch and associated LED lamps that control the operation mode of the heating system. In the down position, the heaters are energized through a timer and the thermostat. In the up position the heaters are energized through just the thermostat. A green LED lamp is energized in the heating mode. A red LED lamp is energized while in Mite-Killing mode.

The Control Box has a transparent front cover so the viewer can observe the displayed temperature in the hive on the digital thermostat front. The front cover is easily opened to gain access to the controls inside. A sturdy gasket seals the front cover to keep moisture out of the Control Box.
