    My friend just bought digital thermo-hygrometer and zip tied it to the egg turner. She just left off a couple of the plastic egg holders and put it where they would go

    Thanks for the post but I was wanting to know how to hook a digital thermostat to my incubator versus the wafer...

    a digital thermostat should have an RTD with it. Probably a PT 100. all you should have to do is take the two wires from the heating elemnent and hook it to the power out and the 115 to the power in then put the RTD in the Incubator. That is the best I can do without knowing what thermostat you have.

    Quote:Chris is right, without knowing the type of thermostat, or seeing a picture, it is difficult to walk you through it. If you can provide those details, I am sure we can let you know quickly
