Default Arcadia Pro T5

Interested in the Arcadia Pro T5 units, wondering if anyone has had any experience with these ? And temperature when mounted inside a viv. As these are complete units I was worried about the temperature they give off seeing as the external controllers get rather hot.

As with any lamp that burns power, some of the energy used will be as heat.

This is in direct correlation to the wattage of lamp used of course

As Arcadia Reptile lamps are also 'Full-Spectrum' they also emit within the spectrum a small amount of red and short wavelength IR.

SO, the trick is to fit the lamp, check the fitting height above the basking zone to be sure of UVI and then check temps when settled, you can then adjust your heat source via the stat to take into consideration any increase over the basking area.

Hope this helps
