The Rcom 50 MAX digital incubator is one of Rcom's best selling egg incubators and one of the most advanced incubators available. The Rcom 50 is a fully automatic egg incubator with full digital temperature, humidity and egg turning control. Its simple menu system makes it one of the easiest incubators to use.
The Rcom 50 has an in-built water reservoir and pumps humidity automatically to your precise settings. Water is heated inside the machine by an antiblastic humidification method which discourages antibacterial growth. The Rcom 50 also features a low-water alarm to alert the user to low water levels.
Within the Rcom range of incubators, there are a few that are similar. In the Rcom 50 range, you have the Rcom 50 PRO and the Rcom 50 MAX, which is a slightly different machine. You also have the Rcom 20 PRO and Rcom 20 MAX, which are the smaller versions of the Rcom 50’s.

These machines are very similar. Both have digital displays, automatic egg turning, automatic humidity control and hold the same amount of eggs. The difference is that Pro version has been designed for breeding falcons or exotic birds that can be more difficult to hatch and often require very specific settings.
The Rcom 50 Max has a temperature display, humidity display and indication lights for water level, egg turning and heating. You simply set the temperature and humidity levels to match your requirements. The Rcom 50 Pro has a much more specialised program which includes a species selector from which you can select your desired species and the machine will automatically adjust to the recommended settings for that species. The Pro will also count down the days, turn off the egg turning 3 days before hatch and increase the humidity on your selected day.
The main attraction of the Pro is that it offers much more tailored turning options. You can set the machine to turn the eggs from 45° up to 180° at 15° intervals (based on a typical hen-egg size). There is also more flexibility on when the eggs turn; it can be set to turn every 20 minutes to every 3 hours. Whereas, on the Max version, the turning is only able to turn 180° at 1-, 2- or 3-hour intervals.
The first difference between the Ovation 56 Eco 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 other difference is the that both the Rcom 50 Max and Pro have a humidity display and automatic humidity control, whereas the Ovation 56 Eco does not. 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 Eco.
The first difference between the Ovation 56 Advance 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 other difference is the that both the Rcom 50 Max and Pro have a humidity display and automatic humidity control, whereas the Ovation 56 advance has a humidity display, but the humidity must be controlled manually. 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 Advance
|Fantastic machine only 1 plug needed to run everything humidity reliable and easy to control the turning or should I say rolling is some how more natural. Recommend this machine to anyone|
|Superb quality and reliable product. Intuitive and easy to use display. Have just hatched some 30 chicks without any hassle or concerns about the incubators performance.|
|Best incubator I have had will be buying again|
|Fantastic Mashine !Worth the money and easy to control 5 stars|
|Wonderful little machine, poor hatch unfortunately but due to the eggs I believe. Easy to work, and easy to clean Programme ran without any interference needed except the occasional top up of water.|
|Excellent service delivered safely|
|Purchased the Rcom 50 Max as I needed a better quality incubator. So far, I have not been disappointed. The automatic temperature and humidity controls makes life so much easier and hopefully will improve hatch rates. The machine appears to be very well made compared to other machines Iâ€™ve used. The price was excellent and despite al the issues with Covid-19, it was delivered promptly by the incubator shop. Very happy customer all round.|
|Very pleased with it. I'm always a little dubious about reviews but its so easy to work even for an old lady. Love the fact you can take it to pieces to clean it. Only a small issue, if you are using eggs that you don't know the age of, it needs more humidity at the final stage which the machine won't allow I compensated with kitchen towel and cup of warm water, 38 hatched from 41 old guineafowl eggs the 3 were not fertilised.|
|Had a Rcom King suro 20 which in my mind was very good and much easier than my previous Brinsea. I wanted bigger and definitely not disappointed. Easy to set up and run and with great results. The price nearly put me off but very glad I got this. Would recommend to anyone.|
