D3 UV BASKING LAMP

Self ballasted mercury vapour lamps

The D3 UV Basking lamp is a high performance lamp providing UVB, UVA visible light and heat from a single lamp. Designed as a basking lamp for larger vivaria in which the reptile has sufficient room to move into and out of the basking area to regulate its temperature.

Les avantages de D3 UV Basking Lamp

The Arcadia D3 basking lamp is an ideal all in one lamp for providing heat, light and UV, every technology however has limitations. At Arcadia reptile we are passionate about providing the very best of systems to our captive reptiles and believe that our customers should be given the full picture of how lamps work, it is for this reason that we always encourage the use of a linear UV lamp, this would in most cases still be required to open up the usable photogradient available to the animal. As we all know reptiles have to be given the ability to self regulate their exposure between heat, light and UV and cool and shade.

The D3 cycle is dependent on this. If the footprint of a lamp is limited as spot source lamps are, then the usable emission zone is in turn limited. We would always suggest that in vivs over 24” in length that a high output T5 lamp is used alongside these UV rich basking spots. This then opens up the graduated power zones and allows the animals to decide when and where to bask and assimilate the power that it required at that moment.

The NEW D3 80 Watt

Many species of reptile and Amphibian require a warm spot under which they can bask, and become fully energised with heat and Ultra Violet. As in nature, these basking zones should be UV rich and stable. Arcadia Reptile is delighted to include a world exclusive “Mini M.V” lamp into our range of SBMVL. These much smaller R95 lamps emit a safe natural amount of UVB and a balanced UVA similar to wild exposure at lower fitting heights and also produce a good stable amount of heat.

These lamps are particularly suited to being fitted inside wooden vivaria and over mesh topped Terraria. These setups have historically suffered with heat rising to dangerous levels very quickly, and due to the limitations of height inside a vivarium, many of these lamps have been fitted too close to the animals.

The 80 watt Arcadia Mini D3 UVB basking lamp is a more energy efficient, high output, mercury vapour lamp that can used inside vivariums and over mesh topped, glass terrariums. This lamp will enable many more reptile and Amphibian keepers to create a good UV rich photogradient within the enclosure. With a target height of 20-30cms from lamp to animal this is the one stop mini solution to your animals basking needs.
