Quick Overview

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

Note: Interface Module will control only one Gyre pump

To run the Maxspect Gyre in Alternating Gyre Mode (forward and reverse) you will need the Alternating Gyre Mode Modified Cable (sold separately). 


Full Details

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 7/25/2017

    Got 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 3/29/2017

    First 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 10/29/2016

    Runs 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.

Product Questions

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?
Question by: Christina Jones on Jun 1, 2017 2:12:00 AM
The latest information from CoralVue is that the Ice Cap Gyre module is now compatible with the 200 series of pumps, so this module should now be compatible with the XF150 and XF250.

Happy reefing!
