- Gyre Interface Module for XF250 Pumps - IceCap
Hook up your Maxspect Gyre or IceCap Gyre pumps to most 3rd party controllers using an available 0-10 volt control port. Controlling Gyre pumps with a controller lets you create custom daily wave profiles, and also control your pumps through your controller's software.
Compatible With: Maxspect Gyre XF150 & XF250 Pumps
When using the Neptune Apex (or other controllers) with the Gyre Interface module it allows complete control over the pumps at any point throughout the day. With simple visible graphing, controlling the Gyre pumps has never been this simple.
- Change the Gyre’s flow pattern multiple times a day
- Alternate pulsing frequency of the gyre
- Set operating modes like; feed, night, service, etc.
- Run Maxspect Gyre in Alternating Gyre Mode (additional cable required)
- Battery Backup Compatible
- Backward compatible with Maxspect XF150 series.
- Neptune Apex Ready
Another great feature of the module is that it allows you to hook up your gyre to a backup battery. The module will automatically detect when the main power is lost and will slow the gyre the 30% speed to extend the life of the battery. The module is backward compatible and will run XF150 Gyres already on the market.

Gyre Interface to Apex 0-10v Cable
Note: Interface module will control only one Gyre pump. Alternating Gyre Mode requires the Alternating Gyre Cable (sold separately).

Loose connectivity By erick on 4/25/2019erick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI’ve had two of these running for a few months and then all of a sudden my pumps stopped working. Boiled it down to them loosing connectivity. Turning them off and then on fixes the problem but now it’s an everyday problem. Save you money and don’t buy them.
Reduced Flow By Steve-O on 3/10/2019Steve-O wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI was running my XF250 on a Gyre controller, decided to purchase this to integrate it with my Apex. Hooked it all up, tested it, seemed to be working, so i threw the box away. It's about a week later now and I realize it has significantly lower flow at 100% output than it did on my Gyre controller. Disappointed and moving back to my Gyre controller.
No power By erick on 11/25/2018erick would recommend this product to a friendDoes not come with a power supply, or even an option to buy one. Having to contact the manufacture is a HUGE hassle!
Unreliable and poor quality By John on 11/10/2018John wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have not had good luck with Icecap modules and my Gyre pumps. The Icecap modules periodically loose connectivity. While I'd like to be able to manually set flow patterns, the advanced Gyre controller is reliable and works. I've taken my two Gyres off the Icecaps and use the advanced controller. Wish I could return these.
Controller By Reefer on 8/16/2018Reefer would recommend this product to a friendDo you need the Gyre controller with the icecap or just pump + icecap. It would be nice if you can eliminate the Gyre controller when using third party controller.
works great By markm on 7/25/2017markm would recommend this product to a friendGot 2 XF 250 Gyres and a module for each powerhead for use with my APEX. Set up was easy. Just watch Carlos's videos on the CoralVue website.
Works well By Joseph on 3/29/2017Joseph would recommend this product to a friendFirst one had a problem that would sometimes cause the Gyre to lock up. Ice Cap support was great actually and replaced it promptly. New one has been working flawlessly for six months or so. I use it to oscillate the Gyre between a high and a low speed and to reverse direction with a different period. Creates a variety of flow patterns with just a single Gyre
Unit barely functional By Alex on 10/29/2016Alex wouldn't recommend this product to a friendRuns my Gyre 150 at 20% power at best. Can't get enough flow out of it. Can't get support for product. Standard gyre controller gets me plenty of flow, but I can't as easily coordinate it or program it as I could with an Apex running it.
Great addition to the Gyre 150! By Q on 3/19/2016Q would recommend this product to a friendI liked what i saw from the Gyre 150 I had to ensure i was able to control it with my Apex. This module is a must buy if you want to use it at its full ability. Great buy
Works By jordan on 3/9/2016jordan would recommend this product to a friendWorks well with the Apex but nothing compared to the vortech pumps. Next step is a Neptune apex module. The ice cap will work but you need to read up on how to create profiles in fusion. More complicated then the vortech pumps. For the price yeah you would expect this to work like the Ecotech products. 3 stars
AWESOME By ALEX on 10/19/2015ALEX would recommend this product to a friendWORKS AWESOME WITH APEX
What are the dimensions of the unit and the clear space required below?
I see that in January this icecap was not compatible with the gyre 250. Has this been resolved? Is there a controller that will make the 250 work with Apex yet?
