    If I'm going to control 4 Kessil A360 lights and 3 Tunze powerheads, do I need two VDM's or 1 VDM and a ___________ ?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Scott,
    It depends on how you want to control the lights. If you want every light fixture to be able to be controlled individually, then you would need a VDM port for each individual light. Otherwise you use a single VDM port to control the first light and then daisy chain the other lights to the first light. The first light will be controlled by the controller and act as the master light and control all the daisy chained lights.

    Can I use this module with the Koralia controllable pumps? Or will it just work with the Tunze pumps.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Jake,
    The module only works with the Tunze pumps (as far as controllable pumps goes that is). The Koralia doesn't have any 3rd party controllers that I am aware of and the line has also been discontinued.

  • Works Nicely By JimVision on 11/10/2014

    Hooks up to the Apex with no trouble. Finally I have light control.
  • Finally I can dim By Johnny Sea on 10/25/2014

    I could not wait to dim my Kessil A360WE. BRS was excellent when the wrong module was shipped to me twice. It was easy to connect and program. Hardest thing is choose how ramp the color and the intensity.
  • Awesome By r1rider on 2/14/2014

    Received it on time no damage work great all round awsom
  • Not Bad By john on 1/3/2014

    If you need to control led's or pumps with 1-10v with the apex, this is what you need. It installs easily. Like others have said the apex programming is not the easiest, but there are plenty of examples online.

    Overall a good product.
  • It Works By Brad Patterson on 11/28/2013

    It does what it suppose too, once you figure out all the programming. I have the VDM for my Kessil A360W. Once I got all the profiles setup and all different control features working. No problems. Easy to install.
  • It's ok By Bob barker on 11/23/2013

    It works we'll but it's kind of a pain to get the hang of the programming. They really could have simplified it. Also they should have used a different typ of connection when not using the leds that they are mainly made to be used with. How ever when all is done it dose the job as advertised.
