Monitor and Control
Apex Control System
The new Apex's Head Unit now includes the ability to have salinity monitoring, pH, ORP, and Temperature monitoring right out of the box. The completely new design also incorporates a sleek, rotating mounting system letting you securely mount the brains of the Apex system while having easy access to probe cords, and aquabus connections.
Built in reliable WiFi
Now with built-in WiFi, connecting your Apex system has never been easier. With the totally free Fusion cloud based software, getting connected, and controlling can be done within minutes. You can now do firmware updates through WiFi on your local network
Energy Bar 832
The most comprehensive aquarium controlling and monitoring system to date is finally here. The Energy Bar 832 now has eight individual, 7 amp relayed outlets letting you use any outlet for any device. Each individual outlet can also monitor and detect power usage in amps or watts, letting you set alarms and send emails when pumps have clogged or failed, lights are not turning on, heaters leaking current, letting you be notified of the issue before it becomes a problem. With electricity costing more and more money per Kilowatt hour having the ability to monitor each pump, heater, and light lets you now make better decisions on the overall value of your equipment.
Each Energy Bar 832 also has two 24VDC accessory ports that can power small pumps, solenoids, fans and more, while the built-in 100W DC power supply lets you control up to 3 1Link accessories like the WAV circulation pumps, and DOS fluid metering system without the need for any additional power supplies or consuming additional outlets. The EB832 also has 3 AquaHub connections letting you expand to any existing or upcoming module making your Apex System truly limitless.
Neptune didn't stop there, with an all new mounting system on the Energy Bar orients the power strip in the correct direction keeping cords neat and tidy. While the outlets have a bit wider spacing, and orientated opposite of each other keeping room for those bulky transformers, allowing you to plug in almost anything you want, where you want.
New Lab Grade, Double Junction Probes with Built-in Salinity Monitoring
Double junction pH, and ORP probes lets your readings stay more stable without the need to calibrate as often. With the Apex System calibrating your probes through your dashboard is easier than ever before. The dashboard will automatically recognize when your readings have stabilized and letting you know when to move to the next step, no more guesswork and reading RAW data.
Fusion is a cloud-based site that lets you access your Apex from anywhere in the world. Letting you customize outlets, set reminders, log testing parameters, while monitoring and controlling any aspect of your aquarium through your phone, tablet, or desktop.
Apex Fusion has released an IOS app that now integrates directly with your Apex Controller System. Having the app now lets your Apple desktop, Ipad, or phone receive notifications directly from your Apex Controller. No more need for emails or text messages.
(Android app coming soon)
If you have any old modules, head units, energy bars, or other Apex accessories they will work flawlessly with the new Apex Controller.
Head Unit - 4.75" L x 5.25" H x 3.25" W
Energy Bar 832 - 10" L x 6.5" H x 2.25" W
The Trident is an automated testing system that regularly tests alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium in your saltwater aquarium — and then communicates this information to your Apex so you can get alerts, and change your dosing. When combined with the DOS (available separately) it creates a fully automated system for the proper dosing of supplements, maintaining them at consistent levels.
The Neptune DOS Fluid Metering System is one of the smartest dosing pumps on the market. It will hook directly to your existing Neptune Apex or Apex Jr. giving you the ability to program both pumps independently for whatever kind of dosing your tank may need. The DOS pump includes two pump heads for the most common of two-part dosing, but it is not limited to just two part dosing. You can use it for automatic water changes once a week or even once a day, minor trace element additive dosing, liquid food dosing, or pretty much any other liquid your tank may need to be dosed in metered amounts.
You simply just hook the DOS Fluid Metering system to your Apex controller with the included AquaHub cable and with the Fusion cloud software programming a dosing pump has never been so simple. The DOS system when interfaced through fusion can be programmed to dose a certain amount of liquid between certain intervals of the day. The DOS pump is so smart it will even change the speed of the motor depending on the amount needed to be delivered to the tank to keep noise at a minimum.
Add even more convenience to your Apex Controller with the AFS Automatic Feeding System from Neptune Systems. Automate your feedings while you are away on vacation or if just want to remove this from your daily routine, the AFS can feed your tank inhabitants once a day or multiple times a day. Daisy-chain two AFS feeders together to feed two different foods or just increase the storage for those long vacations.
Detecting a leak early can be the difference between saving a tank to an entire loss. Neptune's Leak Detection Kit is the perfect solution for anyone that uses an Apex Controller to monitor and control their aquarium. The LDK system will plug right into your current Apex through the Aquabus connections and includes two Leak Detection Sensors. The sensors can be placed in multiple areas around your tank and its equipment.
Pairing an Apex Controller with the LDK lets you monitor and control your aquarium in the event of a leak or an overflow. With Neptune Fusion, you can easily set up alarms that will notify you if a sensor ever detects moisture, and also control any equipment that is powered by an EnergyBar. One common example of common programming and placement is to place a leak detection probe on top of your protein skimmers lid, and if it ever overflows the sensor can notify your Apex of the issue, and shut down the protein skimmer keeping all the skimmate from flowing back into your aquarium.
Know the flow of your reactors, return pumps, drains, or any other piece of plumbing that may have a required flow rate. We have found the FMK to be a great resource for UV sterilizers and GFO reactors to manage the flow rate and ensuring the proper contact time. Each FMK includes one 1" and two 1/2" flow sensors but can accept up to 4 total sensors to the included FMM Module.
The wired Apex Display module allows you to always have visual access and control of your Apex system, without the need for a smartphone or computer. The new sleek grey display module will now have a soft-glow orange back-lit LCD display with the traditional 7 button layout for easy functionality. You can program multiple different display screens that you can look through with the click of a single button, or be able to enter feed modes for feedings, water changes or other maintenance.
Neptune has designed a Magnetic probe rack that will hold up to 4 probes with one hole being slightly over-sized to hold those larger probes like the Neptune temp probe. By simply placing the MPR in your sump or tank, you can now securely hold all your probes in a single spot. If a probe is left loose there is a good chance it may float with the business end being exposed to the air and causing a false reading. The Neptune MPR can work with glass up to 1/2" thick and keep all your probes secure and safe.
