A rheostat is basically a dimmer. It allows you to manually reduce the amount of power reaching a heater, whereas a thermostat like the 500R senses the temperature and turns the heater on and off accordingly. Not compatible with Reptisun, Avian Sun or Power Sun UV because these lamps need specific line voltages; they cannot be used with dimmers/rheostats. You can plug up to two heating devices into this temperature controller, but make sure the maximum wattage capability is not exceeded.
