Got this to use on my NEW Apex 2016 model. Pretty much plug and play..except you will NOT see it on Fusion until you actually wire something up to it...just plugging it in will not recognize the BOB. Once I wired my float switch into it, it shows right up. Im using this as a 3rd switch to turn OFF my ATO if the other 2 fail. Endless possibilities for uses...Im sure I will wire more things into it.

Works really well for floats, sump door sensors, & leak sensors. By MTWiley on 11/2/2015

I have mine monitoring my DT overflow to turn off the return pump if the drain gets clogged and prevent an overflow onto my floors. A magnetic door switch to turn on the fuge light whenever I open the sump/stand door so that I can actually see when I'm looking around inside my sump area. And I picked up a few leak sensors and have those hooked up to the breakout box instead of spending much more on the an ALS and sensors.
Best Part of the Apex By Evan on 7/18/2015

I'm coming to think that this may be the best part of the Apex system.
I was worried about overflowing, so I hooked up some float switches to send emails to me.
I hate working in a dark sump, so I wired some magnetic switches to turn on a light when I open the stand doors.
I wanted to speed up maintenance, so I stuck a button in a box to to automatically turn off and on equipment as needed.
Work Well, wish apex made switches By Polymorphyc on 6/17/2015

Pretty much plug and play, just be mindful it where its plugged in, because that effects the switches names when programming.
Great product, but not for an Apex Junior By AZBigJohn on 4/24/2015

Wish the first comment had been there when I bout this module. I own an Apex Junior, and my ATO system died. I bought this to use to make an ATO system, only to find out that in order to use it with an Apex Junior, you also have to buy another module (PM1 or PM2) which then pushed to cost too high, and made it much more affordable to simply buy a stand alone ATO.
If you have an Apex, GO FOR IT! If you have an Apex Jr, don't.
Added a couple of these to my Apex. By Mark H. on 4/24/2015

The pinouts for the Apex controller I/O is pretty easy but these boxes are well made and save a finding the cable and making them. I am setting up my system with a bunch of float switches and control points to let the controller alert me when there are problems. The breakout box is an easy short cut. It should be included with each module that needs it but I think the manufacturer realizes most people will buy it and it gives them a little more margin. From everything I have seen from Neptune Systems and their user community (zombie that means you) I am not going to complain. They do good work and a lot of people rely on them.
Additional Module needed for Apex Jr. Controller owners By Jeff on 3/14/2015

When purchasing the I/O Breakout Box for an Apex Jr. Controller you will need to also purchase the PM1-PH Module or PM2-Salinity Module as the Jr. by itself does not have an I/O port. Great addition to my system for ATO and cabinet lighting, highly recommended.
Plug and play for the float switches. By Chavinpat on 2/13/2015

This breakout box can easily be made, but I want it to look nice and clean. You take pride of your display tank, why not take pride down below in the sump area.
Great for Switches By Jason on 1/25/2015

Used with manual switches that powers on and off equipment. Also used with float switches. Very easy to setup and use.
