ITC-306T version.. $30 shipped to your door
Has over temp buzzer and works great..
URR now I have to return 3 of these... Over temp buzzer is not an alarm that you can set.. It is a buzzer if the temperature goes over 210 degrees. Thanks for that but my tank will be long dead at even 200 degrees...

The 306T is perfect. It will sound an alarm if the temp drops below negative 58 degrees or above 210 only no other alarms.

The probe on my inkbird is rusting a bit- so, I dunno... But just today my temp was off and the alarm was sounding. I'm going to check the temp with a digital thermometer later on.. I've had my inkbird a lil over a year.

Didn't see where you specified you wanted to set the alarm thresholds..

Since you should be using this to turn your heaters on/off overtemperature problems can only then come from a failure of a the temperature sensor or additional heat sources not controlled by the temperature controller..

For those that don't want to read the manual..
Quote:
6.1 Sensor Fault Alarm: when temperature sensor is in short circuit or open loop, the controller will initiate sensor fault mode, and cancel all the actions. The buzzer will alarm, LED displays ER. Buzzer alarm could be dismissed by pressing any key. After faults solved, the system will return to normal working mode.
6.2 Over-temperature Alarm: when measured temperature exceeds the measuring range (less than -50C /-58 F or higher than 99 C/210 F), the controller will initiate over-temperature alarm mode, and cancel all the actions. The buzzer will alarm, LED displays HL. Buzzer alarm could be dismissed by pressing any key. When temperature returns to measuring range, the system will return to normal working status.

And for those that didnt read the OPs post: "What I would like is a simple temperature controller that has an audible alarm if the temp goes out of range."

And do you have any sort of control experiment to bring validity to this seemingly very confident statement? Or is this just anecdotal experience.. BECAUSE almost every element in stainless steel is certainly lethal to a reef tank if it were to leach out in any noticeable amounts. Not to mention there are many different grades of stainless some not very corrosion resistant at all.
