Brinsea 580 Ova Easy Advance series 11 EX Automatic Incubator
The Brinsea Ova-Easy 580 Advance is improved from the 2013 models with the addition of a single button to level the turning trays and room temperature sensors and alarms to warn if the room temperature goes out of optimum range.

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 580 Advance 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.
Humidity is controlled by the EX pack and the user is able to input the desired humidity (40% typically) and if it drops below that point the machine pumps water in to raise it to the required level.
Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider on the front.
When using the EX pump in damper or more humid conditions the Ova-Easy 580 EX can be told to cease communicating with the pump and humidity released by opening the vent up.
To accommodate eggs of different sizes the Ovaeasy 580 Advance comes supplied with universal trays with movable 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 432-576.
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.
Six shelves automatically turn, two trays are supplied for each.
There is no provision for a hatching area in the Ova-Easy 580 although all shelves could be used if the automatic turner is turned off.
A separate hatcher would be best and the Brinsea Hatcher or MS hatchers would work perfectly giving flexibility for weekly (or more often) hatches.
The Ova-Easy 580 Advance 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 580 Advance 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.
