What exactly does this device serve for the Apex unit? How is it beneficial?

Great question!
This power supply is not required however in some event people may not want to plug in the Energy Bar to the Apex through the aquabus, If this is the case they can use this power supply separately to power the main module.

Full Details

If you have an Apex Controller, more than likely you are trying to protect against equipment failure, along with monitoring, and alarm capabilities that can notify you in the event when something is going wrong. The 12V Power Supply is one of the most overlooked pieces of equipment that will possibly save your aquarium someday when there is a power outage. 

 

By connecting your Apex Controller to the 12v power supply and then plugging it into a computer style UPS (uninterrupted power supply) along with your router/modem and an energy bar, you can have a complete battery backup system. With that, it can notify you through email or text messaging when power is lost and control certain life support outlets like low power consuming pumps and heaters.

  • Great Product By Dan on 11/4/2016

    Works exactly as it should. In conjunction with a battery back-up this product will help keep your apex running to alert you of power outages.
  • Added to my Apex controller to detect power outages. By Mark H. on 4/24/2015

    This nifty little power supply can be used in concert with a Apex controller to detect power outages. I have a pair of large UPS that I use to power a small amount of equipment in the event of a power outage. This supply is plugged into normal power and will let me program my apex to put itself in low power, keep the tank alive mode while the power is off. The plan is to allow it to run long enough for the power to come back on or for me to get the generator running. I work in the IT department so I think about redundancy a lot.
