- Gyre Interface Module XF150/250 - IceCap
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.
Hook up your Maxspect Gyre XF-150 or XF-250 pump to most 3rd party controllers using an available 0-10 volt port.
- Change the Gyre’s flow pattern multiple times a day
- Alternate pulsing frequency of the gyre
- Sync or anti-sync multiple pumps*
- Set operating modes like; feed, night, service, etc.
- Run Maxspect Gyre in Alternating Gyre Mode (additional cable needed - sold separately)
- Battery Backup Compatible
- Backwards compatible
- Neptune Apex Ready
To run the Maxspect Gyre in Alternating Gyre Mode (forward and reverse) you will need the Alternating Gyre Mode Modified Cable (sold separately).
The IceCap Gyre Interface Module is an after-market product that will allow you to hook up your Maxspect Gyre pump to most 3rd party controllers by using an available 0-10 volt port. This makes the Module very versatile and almost universally compatible with most controllers including the Apex by Neptune Systems or the Reef Angel among others.
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 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 all Gyre pumps already on the market.
Note: The XF150/250 Interface Module will only work with 1x Maxspect Gyre XF150 or XF250 pump. If you have multiple pumps you will need an additional interface module for each Gyre pump.

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.
