Will this work with apex?
Question by: Joseph on Jan 13, 2016 11:25:00 PM
Great question!
The Vortech pumps can be controlled with the Neptune Systems Apex with the use of the WXM module by Apex. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

EcoTech VorTech QuietDrive Features:

In a reef aquarium, having the perfect amount of flow and water movement is crucial to the health of your animals, as well as the overall success of the tank.  With the VorTech Quiet Drive, choosing the proper water circulation equipment has never been more simple.  VorTech pumps are designed by aquarists to be the standard in wave-making technology:

  • Create massive water movement - Adjustable flow rates with included controller allow you to dial in a setting that is tailored to your aquarium
  • No hot spots - With its broad flow pattern, the VorTech QuietDrive eliminates "flow hot spots"
  • Three-dimensional flow - A unique patented design is unrivaled in creating three-dimensional flow conditions and gyres
  • Comprehensive flow modes - 12 different flow modes allow you to choose the best setting for happy corals and fish
  • Ultra low-profile design - With its patented design, the VorTech QuietDrive is the least visually obtrusive pump on the market
  • Safe - No electrical components in the aquarium greatly reduces the risk of electrical shock to you or your animals.  

 

Multiple Flow Modes

Lagoon Mode

Lagoon Mode

Simulating a low-energy lagoon. The QuietDrive motor slowly changes, recreating the gentle currents of a lagoon environment.

Reef Crest Mode

Reef Crest Mode

Simulating currents found around high energy reefs. The pump changes speed frequently emulating crashing waves and tidal surges.This is a great mode for SPS corals.

Gyre mode

Gyre Mode

Uniform circular flow creates motions that help transports water from one side of the tank to the other. With two pumps paired in Gyre Mode, you can oscillate between a clockwise and counterclockwise gyre that lasts from 2 seconds to 2 hours.

Short Pulse Mode

Short Pulse Mode

Strong short pulses that can be set at intervals of 0.2 seconds up to 2 seconds. This mode can create a standing wave in your tank with the correct frequency.

Tidal Swell Mode

Tidal Swell Mode

A harmonic balance of the ever changing conditions found in the ocean. TSM will vary from calm flow all the way up to chaotic high flow and it even has a pre-programmed detritus cleaning surge that will help suspend particles to be swept into the filtration system.

Nutrient Transport

Nutrient Transport Mode

NTM is programmed to create a two-phase circulation flow mode. Phase one consists of wave motions to help stir up and suspend detritus while the second phase incorporates surging motions to help push particles towards the overflow and down into the filter system. This is our favorite mode and is especially great for sensitive corals like LPS and SPS.

 

Function Modes

Feed Mode

Feed Mode

Pause all of your wireless Ecotech Pumps at the push of a button. Pumps will turn down to an idle speed allowing you to feed your tank without the food being pushing into rocks or into the filtration system.

Night Mode

Night Mode

Simulate a calmer environment for night time hours. Night Mode can be enabled or disabled with custom hours programmed to automatically turn on and off.

Wave Auto Tune

Wave Auto Tune Mode

Create a standing wave in your aquarium to help sweep detritus and other foreign particles from the sandbed. It is amazing what will magically float out of the rocks when a standing wave is created. We highly suggest pairing two wireless pumps for this mode to get the full effect!

  • Great Product By WebCitz on 9/10/2017

    I've got two of these on a 300 gallon aquarium from Custom Aquariums. It is an 8' wide tank and have one on each end. They work great and are connected to a Reeflink. I will probably hook up to the Apex soon though. Well worth the cost for the flow!
  • Brilliant By N8 on 3/15/2017

    I've used one for a couple years and they are brilliant/bulletproof. Those who've had trouble... I dunno, but mine is a brilliant, beautiful, and flawless piece of reefing kit.
  • Manuafactueing Issues By Sam on 3/13/2017

    Had the controller go out on one after 4 months and ordered a spare. It would not work out of the box. Contacted ecotech and awaiting resolution which will determine final overall rating
  • Wow By Simiakos on 12/17/2015

    So it works incredible and is extremely quiet. Only negative that I see so far is price but by eliminating all the wires from my tank was worth it.
  • works great By Sean on 11/19/2015

    worth the money
  • Broke after 1.5 yr By Big E on 9/25/2015

    Garbage. Bought two. Although they worked decently in the beginning, they had constant issues. Do not run reliably. Stopped working altogether after 1.5 yrs. Would not buy. Would not recommend. Very disappointed.
  • wow By Chase on 4/30/2015

    The lack of noise this pump makes compared to the power it has blows my mind. This is the coolest aquarium purchase I have ever made. I have a single mp60 on a 220 gal tank for the time being but so far it is enough.
