Hydration Bar with Temperature and Moisture Monitor for Modular Nests
This Hydration Bar forms part of our large modular nest system. This version has one piece of sponge or plaster replaced with a temperature and moisture monitor.
It can be attached to any side of a modular nest (except a side with entrances) and can have either natural sponge or plaster as the moisture source in the remaining section. This sponge or plaster can be removed/replaced at any point if needed. To add water, simply remove the small blocks containing magnets holding the acrylic down, remove the acrylic and add water.
This hydration bar is attached to the nest using powerful magnets. To make the setup stronger, we have developed 'connector bars'. Two are needed to connect the hydration bar to the nest. To connect to the nest, simply insert two connector bars into the hydration bar and insert the other end of these connector bars into the nest.
If you are not going to be attaching a nest to the other side of the hydration bar, you will need to select a 'Hydration Bar Blocking Plate' when ordering to block the entrance and to stop the humidity from escaping.
If you are going to be attaching a modular nest to the other side, you will need to select two additional 'connector bars' when ordering.
The temperature and moisture monitor attaches to the hydration bar with magnets and can be removed if needed or to change the batteries in it. The probe from the monitor sits nicely next to the nest for an accurate reading.
To stop any air external to the nest affect the readings on the monitor, it is recommended to use a small piece of cotton wool or white/blue tack to block the entrance where the probe sits. If you are unsure, please contact us, but we will be adding an image of this soon.
You cannot use this hydration bar to stack modular nests, it can, however, be attached to any remaining side of a nest already stacked. Again, if you are unsure, please contact us.
