The cabinet has also been redesigned to ensure side panels fit better for better temperature and humidity control and higher efficiency.
It can easily be upgraded at a later date to the full EX specification giving full humidity control.
The Ova Easy 380 uses Brinsea's digital control system which gives clear indications of temperature and humidity readout, turning status etc.
It also gives access to the full range of extra features such as high and low temperature alarms, temperature display (°C or °F), turning intervals, periodic cooling option etc.
Air is circulated by four long life computer grade fans which blow air in a lamina flow around the incubation chamber. This flow, coupled with the high levels of insulation mean that temperature is extremely evenly distributed throughout the egg chamber.
Vent sliders allow exchange of air and also control of humidity. Extra humidity is provided by a large water reservoir in front of the fan. An evaporating block is also included which vastly improves the level of evaporation and raises humidity significantly.
With the addition of the humidity pump (available separately) this brings the machine up to 'EX' spec which then controls the humidity in the incubator.
To accommodate eggs of different sizes the Ovaeasy 380 comes supplied with universal trays with moveable dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and so maximise the number of eggs that can be held.
Setting capacity depends on preference and style of egg: eggs can be laid on their side, touching sides at a 45o angle or point down. Point down is best achieved in the optional setting trays but can be achieved with careful placing of the eggs in the universal trays. Our experience has shown setting capacity of large fowl eggs to be 216-288 with a further 96 eggs in the hatching basket.
Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated.
Eggs of different sizes can be incubated at the same time.
Egg turning is completely automatic with the machine making a turn once an hour.
Three shelves automatically turn, one tray is supplied for each.
Two extra trays are supplied to form a hatching basket which is placed into the bottom of the machine giving setting and hatching capabilities at the same time.
The Ova-Easy 380 Advance series II incubators have a fully protected steel chassis which is rigid and rust resistant with laminated, high density polystyrene sides providing good thermal insulation and smooth, easy to clean surfaces.
The transparent, double glazed door provides thermal insulation plus the convenience of total visibility of eggs and hatched chicks.
All plastic elements of the Ova Easy 380 Advance series II incubators are now constructed from Anti-microbial plastics to prevent bacterial & other microbial build-up and reducing the possibility of cross contamination which can be the cause of 25% of developed embryos failing to hatch.
We've included more details on this in the information pages on the left.
Cooling is an entirely natural process as most birds will get off the nest at least once a day and leave the eggs unheated for a significant time, the best hatch rates are always achieved when the incubator can mimic the natural nest conditions.
To this end Brinsea have added a cooling option and this feature turns the incubator’s heater and low temperature alarm off for a selectable period but keeps the fan running.
After the cooling period is complete the incubator reverts to normal temperature and the alarm is automatically reset.
The default setting is that cooling is set to off.
