Default MTC-6020 New Ebay Aquarium Temp Controller

Looks like the makers of the STC-1000 have expanded the temp controller and included many more features. I have not explored the possibilities here but the added features would be great to brain-storm on.

eBay Link Unfortunately, it will break in a few days, as it IS an ebay link.

I will post up some screen shots from the listing.

edit: in red

Am I missing it or is this not a two stage controller? It doesn't mention heating at all, just cooling.

I missed the low Amp rating on the relays...
3 Amps? Really?

I wonder if the 'Defrost' is a renamed heating circuit for two-stage operation?

Would 3 Amps be enough for a Keezer and Fan? Seems low.

It is low... The STC-1000 is rated at, I believe 10 Amps at 240V. This would probably not be functional to operate a refrigerator or freezer.

Hmmm, interesting. The low amperage rating is a downer, but it'd probably work for my small keezer. I also wonder what the rating is at 110V. Would be nice to have a separate sensor and programming for cooling my tower. I'm curious what the settings programming options are.
