Does the energy bar include an aquabus cable or does it need to be purchased separately to connect to my apex system?

Does the Neptune Energy Bar 8 come with everything included to get it up and running, or are cables, etc extra?
Question by: Ron on Jan 27, 2014 5:37:00 AM
Hey Ron,
The energy bar 8 is an expansion module for an existing Neptune Apex system. So assuming you already have the controller and the main parts there, you wouldn't need anything additional to add an energy bar 8 to the system.

  • Great Product By thebreederscorner on 7/31/2015

    This is my second energy bar and I absolutely love them. They give me so much more control over my tank, from float switches to my protein skimmer, lights, and reactors. I would highly recommend anyone with a reef tank to get a controller and the more energy bars you have the more enjoyable your reefing experience is.
  • Wokrs great, By StarFishMan on 6/9/2015

    These are very handy. Especially when supporting more than one tank. As in sump, tank number one, tank number two, etc. Although can be a bit overwhelming at times getting every outlet programmed just right the fact that you can add several of these daisy chaining them together like this is AWESOME. There is probably a limit to the total number you can use with one Apex controller but I am three and counting without problems!

    Note I also use many of the male to male type "A" USB 2 cables. These are nothing special and actually the USB standard so "any" non active type or extension USB type male A to type male A are going to work just fine. I bought some from other sources before I realized that BSR offers these cables. In my case I am now using 25 foot and 50 foot cables for the outlets to Apex Gold controller without any issues at all. I suspect that even 75 to 100 feet is probably going to work fine with them.

    In my case I looked at 4 outlets but thought that after all the effort of running custom cables and plugs in the wall for these might as well spend more on the 8 outlets. For USB in the wall nice connectors male type to accept these I use the site www.l-com.com. They have everything you need and even offer male to male type USB cables as well as keystone connectors to make installing them in the wall nice and clean.
  • Wonderful product By Daniel on 4/21/2015

    I love this thing. Ordered two EB8 a week ago. This thing is awesome. I programmed my apex to do so much. So easy to link the two EB8 together. Awesome
  • Excellent By TanReefer on 4/8/2015

    Great addition to the Gold System. Does what it's supposed to...adds 8 controllable plugs.
  • the Porsche of Aquarium controller components By debby on 3/28/2015

    need I say more? Ferrari or Lamborghini more your style? Apex components are IT!
  • Eb8 By Vish on 3/25/2015

    Works great ..
  • great product By rbutton32 on 3/4/2015

    I just bought this to add to control 2nd tank.It Works great
  • Seems Pricey but, By StarFishMan on 3/2/2015

    This is an ideal solution for me. The display tank upstairs needs lights controlled by the Apex unit that is downstairs near the sump. Sure beats having to run extension cords! I was able to find a 50 foot male to male type 'A' USB type cable specifically guaranteed to work with the Apex. And it does, perfectly. Now after adding another tank I will probably daisy chain another 4 outlet unit to the smaller 75 gallon tank. The design of the Apex controller is extremely slick. Can't say enough good things about it. Good things aren't cheap, and cheap things aren't good. Money well spent! Thanks again BRS!
  • GO ALL OUT By JOE on 9/14/2014

    Was gonna go with the four outlet module and im glad i didn't and with the eight cause i only have three left over, thing works like a champ!!!
  • Heavy duty By JohnD on 7/13/2014

    Definitely constructed strong. It does what it is supposed to do and hasn't messed up yet.
  • Great product By James on 6/27/2014

    Not much to say... it does what its supposed to and there have been no issues. I bought one as an add-on to Gold.
  • Best by far By Reefsi on 4/20/2014

    Basically a well built powertstrip, use with the apex controller and you can control it all with this! I have 3 of them and they power everything. Also great to track the amount of the amps drawn.
