Full Details

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.

 

What's Included

1x XF230 Advanced Controller

1x Power Supply

  • Better options for your tank By Matt on 5/21/2017

    Programming 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 3/15/2017

    Thumbs 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.

Product Questions

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.

Hey there,
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!

Hey there,
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!

Happy reefing!
