Product Questions

Does this module work with the new G5 radion?
Question by: Timothy Gottwald on Apr 28, 2020, 5:51 AM
Hi there,

It will not work anymore, the Gen 5s are only compatible with the Mobius app.

Take are

Does this work with the ApexEl controller system? Or do I need something else?
Question by: Scott Bracken on Feb 3, 2020, 10:07 PM
Hey there,

It would work, you just need to connect with an aquabus cable!

Take care
Answer by: Thomas Billington on Feb 5, 2020, 1:05 PM
I'm confused about what exactly "wireless" means in this case. I have my Apex in the basement near my sump. My display tank is upstairs where I have 2 VORTECH MP40WQD powerheads on the tank that are plugged into a UPS (i.e. they are not plugged into a Juice Bar outlet). Are you saying that this module, connected to my Apex via the Aquabus cable, will control my Vortechs upstairs...wirelessly...even though they're not plugged into my Apex in any way? If so I'm sold! But please confirm.

Hey there-

Great question! While the exact range can vary depending on the types of material the signal has to pass through as well as radio frequency interference, this should be able to connect to your Vortechs upstairs without issue in the majority of cases. And you are correct, this is a completely wireless connection between the Vortechs/Radions and the WXM module. If you have any other questions let us know.

Happy reefing! c:

will the WXM work with the apex classic?
Question by: Axel Sanchez on Mar 7, 2017, 2:17 AM
Hey there,
Yes, the WXM module will work with both the new and classic version of the Apex system.

Have a great day!

Do I need a separate WXM Module for each of the Radion G4 lights that I plan to control or can one WXM Module control multiple Radion G4 fixtures? If so, how many can each module support?

Question by: Hunter on Nov 15, 2016, 11:23 AM
Great question! The WXM module has 11 independent channels to support 11 VorTech pumps or Radion LEDs. :-)
Answer by: Randy on Nov 15, 2016, 12:37 PM
I notice that the WXM uses USB for its connection, will it work with another controller like the new Vertex Cerebra?
Question by: John Vanden Bosch Jr on Sep 17, 2016, 2:35 PM
Thanks for reaching out to us! These modules are proprietary to their manufacturer's products and are not interchangeable.

I need this to control my Eco tech30 led wireless on my apex
Question by: Dave on Jul 21, 2016, 10:40 AM
Hi Dave,
The WXM module will allow you to control your Radion lighting fixture from directly from your Apex unit.
Answer by: Charlie on Jul 21, 2016, 11:05 AM
Do I have to have the reef link in order to connect to the ecotech products or will this direct connect them? Do I even need the WXM for the new apex system with build in WiFi?
Question by: christian on Jun 15, 2016, 9:20 PM
Great question!
As long as your Vortech's are wireless enabled (all radions are already) you can wirelessly connect to the WXM module when plugged into the apex. The WXM is still required on the new apex as the RF chip on the Radions and Vortechs does not work with WiFi. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
Answer by: Connor on Jun 16, 2016, 11:22 AM
Does this connect to the vectra L1.
Question by: Jack on Apr 13, 2016, 6:57 PM
Great question!
This will not currently connect with the Vectra pumps. Only the Vortech's and Radions. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor on Apr 18, 2016, 6:46 PM
Hi do this module control the radion as we'll and will control the gen3 models
Question by: Desmon on Jan 18, 2014, 2:43 AM
Hi Desmon,
Radion control is planned for the future but as of right now (January 2014) the WXM module only controls the vortech pumps.
