These interface between the Kessil A360 and the Neptune VDM ports. You don't necessarily need to have a VDM module as the standard Apex system has two VDM ports built right into it. If you don't have the standard Apex or are already using the two VDM ports then you would need an additional VDM module.
It depends on what Apex you have. The standard Apex has VDM ports built right in. If you have either the Apex Lite or the Apex Jr. then you will need the VDM module.
That is exactly what its for, assuming you have an Apex system with an available VDM port (standard on all the normal apex's but would be an additional module if you have the apex lite).
Use the Kessil A360/A160 Neptune Apex Control Cable to connect your Kessil 360 (A360N/360W) or A160 LED lights to your Neptune Systems Apex controller.

Works well By Eric on 8/26/2016Eric would recommend this product to a friendThis is my first Apex and used it to hook up my Kessils. It was the perfect length for me and was easy to use.
Kessil quality, but it's too short By KerryF on 3/29/2016KerryF would recommend this product to a friendWorks as expected with Neptune Apex. Had to buy an extension to connect it up.
Works but is too short! By John on 12/27/2015John would recommend this product to a friendIt connects your Kessil to the apex but is too short for what I would estimate to be most needs. My tank is a 36 inch cube with the apex about a foot to the right of the tank. I had to buy an extension cord to reach my apex. I took off 2 stars based on it being unusable for all but the smallest tanks due to length.
Kessil and Neptune, great combination By Mike on 12/6/2015Mike would recommend this product to a friendWorks as described. As others suggest, connection length options would get the fifth star.
Length issues for most. By Joseph on 5/30/2015Joseph would recommend this product to a friendLess stars for length.
Cable works great but needs to o be offered in longer lengths. If you have a nano or cube you should be fine. Any larger tanks say 4 to 6 feet long your in trouble. First off you use up 2' on the gooseneck so that leaves 4' to make it to your vdm ports so if you mount it up under the back of your tank you'll be okay but most of use don't want any of our apex stuff right over the sump duh!
I had to buy extensions which I did not buy the Kessil ones wow they are not cheap. Once again getting nickel and dimmed for extra stuff. I bought three extensions for way less than Kessil ones. What would make these cables perfect from the start would to offer in different sizes or just a larger size such as 6' 10' or 12'. In fact why not just make them all 6' or 12' I mean seriously when your already making the wire what would it cost to add a couple feet, cents. I almost feel like they are wasting money making extension cables and they could save us customers money by thinking this out better. Let see spend a few more cents to make it longer or charge a rediculas price of 19.99 for an extension cable. I bought some bad a extension cable on Ama for $8 each.
Quick and simple By Grant on 5/20/2015Grant would recommend this product to a friendCable works exactly as described to control a Kessil light from an Apex controller. Like others said it could be longer, but it's easy to find a simple 3.5mm headphone extension cable to solve this.
Great Cable By Jason on 4/15/2015Jason would recommend this product to a friendThis cable was used on an Innovative Marine Fusion 40 and had more than sufficient length in this environment. Good, tight connections at both the RJ45 and 3.5mm ends. Jacket seems sufficient to withstand use in its intended application, too.
Kessil apex link By Joseph on 3/2/2015Joseph would recommend this product to a friendWhile the cable did reach I would have appreciated an extra foot or 2. For the price they could have included the extenstion cable. Overall does what it needs too.
Easy to use and set up By Ceasar on 2/9/2015Ceasar would recommend this product to a friendExtremely easy to use and setup.
Simple and Easy By John on 2/2/2015John would recommend this product to a friendA must have cable for all Apex users. The length may be an issue with larger tanks/set ups, but for most nano reefs, it's perfect.
Works Well By JimVision on 11/10/2014JimVision would recommend this product to a friendWorks as advertised. Good product.
Great Cable Comes Up Short By Devin on 6/21/2014Devin would recommend this product to a friendCable itself is great and feels surprisingly heavy.
You will quickly find that the 6 foot length is not enough.
A rj45 coupler and cable or 3.5mm headphone extension will be necessary in almost every case I have tried.
