Love the Apex system. I bought this EB8 to control my QT. Being able to check remotely and set program failsafes is a relief when going away for vacation.

Great product! I added it to my existing system as a expansion. Synchronized right up and gave me no problems.

Thought this was great until my GFI kept tripping when turning things off for feeding. Finally unplugged everything and it still happened. I pressed the reset button to no avail. I also tried another GFI plug and it tripped also. Hopefully, Apex will replace this defective part.

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.

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.

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
