Use the RD3 pump as a circulation pump!

Watch, how it works! Link to the video.

This controller allows a connection to an aquarium computer (E.g. GHL) via a 0-10V interface.

Please choose your right voltage (120V or 230V) and connection-cable (Apex/ReefAi or GHL)!

Tested so far folowing these computers:
GHL ProfiLux and from Neptune Systems the Apex Aqua Controller.

Compatible with following brands:

The pulsing is in 5s intervals possible.

Functioning of the electronics:
Once a voltage > 0,5V to the 10V interface is, the interface adapter takes over controlling and the system and lock(disable) the buttons on the controller. Voltage will be < 0,5V normal controller operation and the buttons are again released. So can the interface adapter stay connected without performing a function.

If the Aquarium(tank)-computer voltage under 0,5V the 0-10V interface is shut down and the pump can be operated manually. From 0,5V, the interface will take over control of the scheme. In the area of 0,5V-0,8V the pump is switched off. 1V starts the pump at the lowest level (15W) and run. At an increase of 0,5V will increase the level, also. So 1V = 15W 1,5V = 20W 2V = 25W….. 7,5V = 80W.

At a higher input voltage remains the Speedycontroller to the maximum setting are available and no longer increases. The interface adapter behaves as if the corresponding would push the button.
