Questions & Answers

What’s the difference between the Brinsea Ovation 56 Eco, Advance and EX incubators?

The three Ovation 56 machines have different features. The Ovation 56 Eco has a digital temperature display and automatic egg turning. It’s the most basic version of the three.

The Ovation 56 Advance is the mid-spec machine. It has all the same features as the Eco, except the Advance has a digital humidity readout too.

The top of the range machine is the Ovation 56 EX which has every feature from the Eco and Advance models; digital temperature display, digital humidity display and automatic egg turning. But the EX version also has automatic humidity control with a built-in pumping system. Whereas, on the Eco and Advance models, humidity must be controlled manually by filling water troughs inside the machine.

What’s the difference between an Ovation 56 and Ovation 28?

The only difference between the two machines is the size and egg capacity. The Ovation 56 is a larger machine and holds up to 56 hen-sized eggs or equivalent. Whereas the Ovation 28 holds 28 hen-sized eggs or equivalent.

The Eco, Advance and EX versions of the Ovation 28 match the specifications of the Eco, Advance and EX versions of the Ovation 56. The only difference is the egg capacity.

What does the term ‘fully automatic’ mean? Does it mean automatic turning, automatic humidity control and automatic temperature control?

If you see the term ‘ automatic’ in the item name, for example, the “Rcom 20 Max Incubator (Automatic)” or in the description, such as, “the ovation 28 Advance is a fully automatic incubator”, it generally refers to the egg turning; meaning the egg turning is fully automatic. ‘Automatic’ or ‘fully automatic’ does not refer to the humidity control or temperature control.

All incubators include a built-in thermostat, even those that do not have a digital display. So, temperature is always controlled automatically.

What’s the difference between the Brinsea Ovation 56 EX and Rcom 50 models?

The first difference between the Ovation 56 EX and the Rcom 50 Max and Pro is the egg capacity. The Ovation 56 holds more eggs; up to 56 hen-sized eggs or equivalent. The Rcom 50 Max and Pro models can hold up to 50 hen-sized eggs, or equivalent.

The Ovation 56 EX, the Rcom 50 Max and the Rcom 50 Pro all have a humidity display and automatic humidity control. But, the type of control is different as the Ovation uses a pumping system whereas the Rcom 50 Max and Pro both use a heated water humidification unit instead, giving them more precise control.

Finally, the Rcom 50 Pro has a ‘species selector’ feature and specific settings for egg-turning; both of which are unavailable on the Ovation 56 EX.

How to set-up or replace the humidity pump tube.

Here's a video guide to setting-up or replacing the humidity pump tube on Brinsea Mini II, Maxi II or Ovation EX models.
