- Gyre XF230 Advanced Controller - Maxspect
Upgrade your Gyre XF130 with the XF230 Advanced Controller. Replacing your current pump controller with the Advanced Controller will let you unlock all the features and benefits of the XF200 series.
- Controls up to 2 individual Gyre pumps
- 5 Different modes of flow
- Customizable flow cycles
- 6 Adjustable flow variables
- Update your first generation Gyre pumps
- Includes Power Supply
Compatible with Maxspect Gyre XF130 and XF230 pumps only
The new Advanced Gyre Controller now lets you couple up to two Gyre pumps together off a single power supply. By connecting two pumps, they can run in sync, anti-sync, or a couple of other modes giving you more control over the output. It now also lets you set a full 24-hour flow cycle without the need to connect to a third party controller.
If you choose not to set your own custom flow cycle, Maxspect also expertly programmed a couple of 24-hour cycles, like Lunar Tidal Cycle (LTC) or the Oceanic Gyre Cycle (OGC). On top of all of that Maxspect added new flow patterns too, like Random and Gradual Pulsing mode in addition to the traditional Constant, Pulse, and Alternating Gyre modes.

LCD By Wilfredo on 6/3/2019Wilfredo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLCD has gone out where it's totally unreadable after 1 year. I expected better life out of the controller.
Love XF230 but... By Dennis on 1/18/2018Dennis would recommend this product to a friendThis is exactly what I was looking for. Does what was promised. Gives great flow throughout my 90 gal tank. However, programming it is not a simple task. There are presets but... And 11 months after I acquired it the LED went out in the controller today. Worse the controller defaulted to FULL MAX flow which is much more than I want in my tank. Was running it at 30% with a burst to 50%. Hopefully Maxspect or BRS can assist me in getting this fixed. A new controller is $150.
Better options for your tank By Matt on 5/21/2017Matt wouldn't recommend this product to a friendProgramming is difficult. Pre-programmed cycles don't work great. Product claims to have no dead spots. I have tons of wast in my back corners. If you can afford it, there's better pumps, if not, there's just as good cheaper options.
Nice Upgrade By Anthony on 3/15/2017Anthony would recommend this product to a friendThumbs up for the backwards compatibility if you have a first gen Gyre. The flexibility this controller provides for the Gyre is top notch. Currently running the auto mode with 5 programs that transition smoothly throughout the day and planning to add more to mix up my flow even more. Zero complaints here, totally satisfied with this piece.
I'm building a new cabinet to house all me controllers and such need to plan for this one. What are the dimensions of the XF230 Advanced controller. I can only seem to find the dementions of the actual pump. Thanks for your help.
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to this controller. I just measured one at 5.25*3.75. Keep in mind the cords hang below it. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
Why are you selling the max gyre XF230 controller and pump for more than you can buy them separately? I know it's only one shiny penny but I would like to know why buying them together you wouldn't sell them for a better deal!
We agree that this does seem a little odd. However, this is in accordance with Maxspect's MAP pricing policies. I don't think the intention is to have them incentivized as a package, but rather they are grouped for ease of purchase. Still, we're right there with ya!
