The HYDROS Control X3 Monitor Pack includes all essential equipment needed to monitor a healthy aquarium including the Control X3 aquarium controller, HYDROS App, temperature sensor, pH probe, and point leak sensor. Like all other HYDROS controllers, setup is quick and easy, making this ideal for hobbyists new to aquarium controllers. This monitor pack can easily transition into a fully controllable aquarium system capable of controlling outlets for lights, pumps, feeders, and more by simply adding a
The HYDROS Control X3 can connect to two sensor devices including temperature sensors, water level sensors, and leak detectors. The device also includes a Probe Port for monitoring pH or ORP levels. Control X3 can send alerts and notifications through the HYDROS app and with the addition of the HYDROS WiFi Power Strip or HYDROS Smart Plug ( both sold separately) it can also control outlets for lights, pumps, feeders, and more. The Control X3 operates on a HYDROS Safety Net and it is rated IP65 to keep your equipment and aquatic life alive and thriving.
The Control X3 can be used as a standalone controller for saltwater aquariums, freshwater tanks, and pond applications, or it can be added to other HYDROS Controls to build a more extensive system with NO single point of communication failure. Every HYDROS product is a smart device with its own CPU and scheduling capabilities.
HYDROS devices look like industrial controllers because they are built to function in the harsh environment of a marine aquarium. The IP65-rated HYDROS enclosure, and aircraft-style connectors ensure long-term reliability in the face of splashes and corrosive salt spray.
The Sense Port is a new concept in aquarium parameter measurement. HYDROS devices include several Sense Ports. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors.
Sense Ports currently support:
One of the most remarkable ports on the HYDROS Control X3 is the Probe Port. You can connect an ORP or a pH probe to the Probe Port but, this is no ordinary pH input! The circuitry is based on an ultra-high-quality input chip specifically designed for these types of probes. Each pH input provides digital galvanic isolation from the rest of the system. Galvanic isolation prevents interference with other accessories connected to the system like motors and pumps. Digital Galvanic isolation preserves the accuracy of the measurement by converting the signal to a digital domain before crossing the isolation threshold.
The HYDROS Command Bus is used to power the Control as well as communicate with other HYDROS devices for the ultimate failsafe.
