Will this work with the Kessil A360x Refugium light?
Question by: Tommy Broyles on Apr 9, 2023, 5:58 PM
That will not work with that light. To connect to the APEX you would need the wifi dongle and then connect through APEX using IOTA. Thanks!

Can I plug this straight into the ApexEL or do I have to purchase the VDM module?
Question by: Brad on May 30, 2022, 9:28 AM
Thank you for reaching out to us. You will need a VDM module for the variable speed ports.
Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!

Will this cable work with the Kessil AP700 and Apex controller?
Question by: Mike on Mar 22, 2022, 1:05 PM
Hey Mike, thanks for the question! The AP700 works on its own separate controls. It is not compatible with the apex via this cable

Will this hook the h80 refugium light to the apex and control the light?
Question by: Mitchell SECAUR on Sep 14, 2020, 2:47 PM
AS long as you have a VDM module or Variable speed port, yes, it will.
Answer by: Matt Lucero (BRS Staff) on Nov 5, 2021, 8:59 AM
Can this be conected to the unit link cable extention cable in the event that the apex control cable isn't long enough?
Question by: Stephen on Feb 7, 2018, 11:36 PM
Thank you for your question.
Yes, you can connect a unit link extension cable to the Apex to Kessil cable if you need to extend the length.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Have a great day!

Does this work with the H380 refugium light?
Question by: Rob Oderman on Jun 1, 2017, 9:13 PM
While this will plug into the ports on the H380, currently the Apex is only be able to control the ON/OFF functionality of this light through the outlets. This light does not work with the 0-10V variable speed ports.
Answer by: Zack Wilson on Jun 8, 2017, 10:57 AM
I have a Neptune apex wifi I got for Christmas
I have the kessil apex cable
Where on the controller do I plug the cat 5 cable into!
Question by: Joe on May 16, 2017, 7:18 PM
The Apex 2016 will have a pair of 1-10v reference ports on the head unit itself, towards the bottom right on the base. You can plug your Kessil to Apex control cables in either of these ports.
Have a great day!

Will this work on the reef octopus variable speed pump to a vdm?
Question by: Christopher on May 6, 2017, 4:38 AM
The Kessil to Apex control cable can be used with the Varios pumps to provide variable speed control.
Answer by: Zack on May 9, 2017, 10:28 PM
Does this work with the Kessil A80?
Question by: steveC on Feb 8, 2017, 10:09 AM
This cable is compatible with the A80 lights for Apex control.
Answer by: Jason Smith on Feb 8, 2017, 11:23 AM
Will this cable fit reef octopus varios 6
Question by: shannon lobb on Nov 20, 2016, 7:05 AM
Great question! The Varios pump requires a 3.5mm stereo plug, in which case, this will fit! :-)
Answer by: Randy on Nov 21, 2016, 6:44 PM
Will this cable work with the Jecod / Jebao AK-60? It looks to have the same inputs as the kessil.
Question by: Jason Revell on Jun 29, 2016, 2:46 PM
We are not familiar with the jebao pumps and cannot say for certain. The kessil side is a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
Answer by: Connor on Jun 29, 2016, 4:36 PM
Will this cable allow dimming of a Kessel 360w when used with the apex system?
Question by: Joe on Apr 25, 2014, 6:12 PM
That is exactly what its for, assuming you have an Apex system with an available VDM port (standard on all the normal apex's but would be an additional module if you have the apex lite).
What control unit do you need to plug these into the apex on do you need the VDM unit for the apex to use this cable from a kessil to these?
Question by: Ryan on Mar 10, 2014, 4:31 AM
These interface between the Kessil A360 and the Neptune VDM ports. You don't necessarily need to have a VDM module as the standard Apex system has two VDM ports built right into it. If you don't have the standard Apex or are already using the two VDM ports then you would need an additional VDM module.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 10, 2014, 4:31 AM
Do you need two of these cables if you want your APEX to control two lights? Or do you buy the daisy chain cable and one of these?
Question by: Shawn on Jan 15, 2014, 8:26 AM
If you want each light to be controlled separately, then you would need two cables. If you want each light following the same schedule you can control the first light via the Apex and then daisy chain the second light to the first.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 15, 2014, 8:26 AM
Is the VDM module required for this to plug into or does it plug directly into the base unit?
Question by: James on Jan 1, 2014, 1:54 AM
It depends on what Apex you have. The standard Apex has VDM ports built right in. If you have either the Apex Lite or the Apex Jr. then you will need the VDM module.
