Product Questions

Can this pump be connected to the icecap battery backup?
Question by: Zack on May 12, 2017 3:57:00 AM
Hey there,
The Varios pumps are compatible with the Ice Cap battery. It's just a matter of using the right power plug adapter, and Ice Cap provides a number of plug adapters for the majority of pumps on the market.

Happy reefing!

Control

The safe and energy efficient VarioS DC pump now include the new VarioS controller giving you more control. With 5 different energy saving speeds and two feed modes, the controller lets you know what your pump is doing at a glance.

 

Third Party Control

There is a dedicated port on the VarioS controller letting you directly connect your VarioS pump to any third party controller through a 0-10V reference port. Controlling your pump through a controller like an Apex lets you create your own flow profiles which are particularly handy for closed loop systems creating a random flow throughout the aquarium.

 

Safety

Having a pump that lets you directly attach a float switch has several advantages. The float can let you set high or low points in your sump, skimmer cup, or display tank that will shut the pump off when the float is activated.

The VarioS controller includes a waterproof 3-conductor union that connects to the pump creating a safe and detachable connection.
