OUR FLAGSHIP AQUARIUM CONTROLLER

Our Apex System is the best-value aquarium controller on the market today. Dollar for dollar you will not find a higher-quality controller that gives you more features, is easier to use, or has a larger and more active user base than the Apex.

THE APEX GOLD SYSTEM COMES COMPLETE WITH:

  • Apex Base Unit
  • Energy Bar 8
  • Apex Display Module
  • Long-life Temperature Probe
  • Lab Grade pH Probe Lab Grade ORP Probe
  • PM2 – Salinity Module
  • Lab Grade Conductivity (Salinity) Probe


THE APEX BASE UNIT – IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE BRAIN

The Apex Base Unit is basically the brains of your entire Apex System. The Apex Base Unit (ABU) is far different than from what any other controller at this price level is offering. The ABU is basically a small computer whose only job is take care of your aquarium.

BUILT IN INTERNET CONNECTIVITY

The Apex Base Unit is Internet-ready straight out of the box. Just plug it into your router and you are good to go – no software to install! This means that you can control your tank from any computer (or mobile device) in the house.

There is no need, ever, to connect it directly to a computer to monitor your aquarium or update its firmware. And, once you set up external access via port-forwarding on your router, you can easily access your Apex from anywhere in the world via a web browser or via our iOS or Android apps!

And, with Internet Connectivity, the Apex can be configured so that you will get an email or text message whenever something is not quite right with your system – whether that is an over-temperature condition in your tank, the pH is out of whack, or there’s a leak on the floor!

COMPLETE AQUARIUM MONITORING RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX

The Apex Base Unit is equipped with the following monitoring ports:

    • Temperature Port
    • pH Port
    • pH/ORP Port (can be used for either – a feature unique to the Apex)
    • 6 – I/O switch inputs (for use with leak detectors, door switches, feed buttons, ATO, etc.)

BEST SOFTWARE AVAILABLE ON ANY AQUARIUM CONTROLLER

Hands down, the Apex has the most feature-rich, field tested software of any controller on the market today. It all starts with the onboard web server inside the Apex Base Unit. This web server is part of the Apex’s firmware and is truly the secret sauce to it’s success.

The Apex is the only controller on the market that has manufacturer-written, full-featured applications for the computer browser (Mac or PC), iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets (currently available as a beta). Now you can take your Apex with you anywhere and check in on your tank, reprogram your lights, or even feed your fish remotely from the touch of your phone!


COMPLETE AQUARIUM MONITORING RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX

The Apex Base Unit is equipped with the following monitoring ports:

    • Temperature Port
    • pH Port
    • pH/ORP Port (can be used for either – a feature unique to the Apex)
    • 6 – I/O switch inputs (for use with leak detectors, door switches, feed buttons, ATO, etc.)

LET’S TALK ABOUT A LITTLE THING CALLED GALVANIC ISOLATION

This is a topic other controller companies like to avoid. Why? Because not all monitoring ports are created equal. Galvanic Isolation is key to getting accurate readings on pH, Temp, ORP, and Conductivity. Some controllers either do not do it well (they are still figuring it out) or possibly not at all.

The Apex Base Unit comes standard with four channels of 0-10V control. These outputs are controlled in the Apex software and are most commonly used for LED dimming or Tunze speed control pumps. By using one of our optionally available cables, you can connect any Apex Ready 0-10V device to these ports. This means you can do cool things like have your LED lights ramp up and down to simulate sunrise and sunset!

They can also be used for various DIY purposes like controlling the dimming level on Meanwell LED drivers. Should you need additional channels of 0-10V control, no problem, simply purchase our VDM module and get four more – and also get a connection for Apex Ready+ LEDs!


EXTERNAL 12V POWER CAPABILITY – UPS READY

The Apex Base Unit comes with an external 12V power input. With an optionally available wall transformer and a second Energy Bar, this enables you to configure your Apex for power-outage mode.


THE ENERGY BAR – SO MUCH MORE THAN A POWER STRIP!

The Energy Bars available for our Apex systems are much more than a glorified power strip. In fact, this component of your aquarium controller equipment is far more important than most people realize – and not all systems are created equal!  It is obvious that this component is key to controlling things on your aquarium, but what is not so apparent is how it is critical to preventing catastrophe in your aquarium. Here’s how.
