THE APEX ECOSPHERE– LESS HASSLE, MORE SUCCESS
Built in WiFi, key parameter monitoring, and reliable equipment control. Prevent catastrophes, take corrective actions, and receive alerts to your smart phone when things go awry. Set reminders, log testing and dosing information, and keep tabs on your aquarium from anywhere in the world. All this and more is possible with the Neptune Apex Controller System!
The Apex’s included WiFi allows you to connect to the free Fusion Cloud interface, where you can do everything from calibrating probes to customizing outlets with just a few taps. Fusion also gives you the ability to monitor and control your Apex from anywhere and on nearly every device platform – computer, tablet, or smart phone – Windows, OSX, iOS, or Android.
The Fusion interface has a user-friendly design sure to create a headache-free command center for all your aquarium automation needs. Its drag and drop interface allows you to toggle control switches, graphs, video tiles and more to your dashboard, allowing for easy customization that is focused on your individual monitoring needs. Being that the Fusion is a web-based application, you will never have to endure the rigmarole of endless app updates, clumsy touch screens, or complicated drivers to install. Whenever you open the interface, you are always running the most current version of the software. Set up and configuration is streamlined with an easy-to-follow guided user interface.
Included with the Apex Pro and standard Apex Controller Systems is the Energy Bar 832– the power control hub to rule them all. They are the only UL-certified power bars approved for use in aquarium applications. Each of the eight individual outlets has independent power consumption monitoring with its own LED indicator status display, and the power supply feeds an additional three built-in 1LINK ports as well as two 24VDC accessory ports. Now you can connect additional Neptune accessories like the DOS and WAV pump directly to the Energy Bar 832, saving room and eliminating messy cords around your aquarium.
A3 Apex Pro Base Unit
The A3 Apex Pro is the most complete and comprehensive aquarium monitoring system in the Neptune ecosphere. If you’re serious about having complete control over your tank, then look no further. From key parameters like temperature and ORP to water level depth and individual equipment power monitoring, the Apex Pro does it all, and now with a new soft-touch finish and built-in audible alarm. The Apex Pro includes four FMM ports for connecting all fluid monitoring sensors– no separate module purchase necessary!
Energy Bar 832
The most comprehensive aquarium controlling and monitoring system to date is finally here. The Energy Bar 832 now has eight individual, 7 amp relayed outlets letting you use any outlet for any device. Each individual outlet can also monitor and detect power usage in amps or watts, letting you set alarms and send emails when pumps have clogged or failed, lights are not turning on, heaters leaking current, letting you be notified of the issue before it becomes a problem. With electricity costing more and more money per Kilowatt hour having the ability to monitor each pump, heater, and light lets you now make better decisions on the overall value of your equipment.
Each Energy Bar 832 also has two 24VDC accessory ports that can power small pumps, solenoids, fans and more, while the built-in 100W DC power supply lets you control up to 3 1Link accessories like the WAV circulation pumps, and DOS fluid metering system without the need for any additional power supplies or consuming additional outlets. The EB832 also has 3 AquaHub connections letting you expand to any existing or upcoming module making your Apex System truly limitless.
Neptune didn’t stop there, with an all new mounting system on the Energy Bar orients the power strip in the correct direction keeping cords neat and tidy. While the outlets have a bit wider spacing, and orientated opposite of each other keeping room for those bulky transformers, allowing you to plug in almost anything you want, where you want.
*NEW* LLS Liquid Level Sensor
The Neptune LLS is a first of its kind industry exclusive! While most liquid level sensors simply measure the presence or absence of liquid at a predetermined sensor height, the LLS is one continuous vertical sensor that can identify the exact depth of a liquid in both inches and centimeters at any given time. This increased sensitivity in measurement can help you identify and be alerted of changes in evaporation, consumption, and dosing levels within sumps, ATO reservoirs, AIO tanks, dosing containers, mixing stations, and more. The Apex can then be set to send alerts or to take action whenever the liquid level changes by a specified amount. All measurements are shown in both digital and animated visual readouts in the app, allowing you to track your liquid level over time. The opportunities and potential uses for this new sensor technology are endless for automating and optimizing your aquarium system.
*NEW* LD-3 Optical Multi-Surface Leak Sensor
Neptune’s LD-3 Multi-Surface Optical Leak Sensor marks a significant improvement over its analog counterpart, the LD-2 Solid Surface Leak Detection Probe. While the LD-2 utilizes conductive strips to detect fluid leaks on surfaces around your aquarium, the LD-3 takes advantage of optical sensor technology instead. This shift in sensor technology gives the LD-3 two distinct advantages over the LD-2:
- Reusable and resistant to corrosion. The LD-3 sensor can be reused after contact with water. Unlike the conductive strips of the LD-2 which are prone to corrosion from contact with saltwater, the LD-3’s epoxy-coated optical sensors can continue to provide long-lasting leak detection after repeated contact with saltwater & with no risk of corrosion!
- Multi-surface applications with no false alarms. The conductive strips used on the LD-2 can sometimes give a false alarm when placed on metallic surfaces. With its optical sensor, the LD-3 can effectively be used on any surface material type, including metal and epoxied cement, without the risk of triggering false alarms.
Lab Grade, Double Junction Probes
The Apex Pro system includes high-quality probes for monitoring your tank’s temperature, pH, and ORP. Calibration is a quick and simple process via the app dashboard, which will automatically recognize when your readings have stabilized and letting you know when to move to the next step– no more guesswork and reading RAW data. In addition, the double junction pH and ORP probes will allow your readings to stay more stable without the need to calibrate as often.
If you have any old modules, head units, energy bars, or other Apex accessories they will work flawlessly with the new Apex Controller.
