Neptune AquaController Apex Jr System w/ Display
Neptune AquaController Apex Jr System w/ Display 

Apex Jr System
The Apex Jr System delivers a professional quality controller at hobbyist prices.

Built-in Ethernet
Integrated Ethernet port
Most advanced web server available
Interactive graphing application in the web server
Interfaces with AquaNotes iPhone application
Compatible with all Major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari)
Only aquarium controller with web server monitoring, control, and configuration
Compatible with wireless bridges or game adapters (802.11x) so that wireless network communication is possible
Email or text message alarms
Email alarms or audible alarms when Energy Bar power fails
RSS and XML Support

Very simple menu driven configuration
Menus to easily setup pumps, lights, heater, chiller, co2, etc
No programming required for configuration
Outlets can be renamed for easier use
Can be configured through LCD Display or a standard web browser
An enhanced AquaController programming language is available for total control
Sophisticated non standard control available
Virtual Outlets allow even more complex control options

Monitor/Control - Temp
The base unit includes software which is capable of monitoring temperature.  The monitored data can be displayed on the LCD display, the Apex's web page, or through the AquaNotes iphone application. All monitored probes data is logged into the internal nonvolatile memory for later retrieval. All probes support digital calibration.

Integrated 4 Outlet Control
The base unit includes 4 independently controllable outlets. Each of the 4 outlets is rated for a total 8 amps and the total current draw must be less than 15 Amps. All 4 outlets use relays to control the power to the outlets.

Galvanic isolation on probes
Galvanic isolation on the probes results much more reliable and accurate probe readings. While these features increase costs we feel that probe accuracy is absolutely critical for monitoring/controlling your tank, unlike many competing aquarium controllers.

State of the Art Electronics Integration
Only 32 bit processor on an Aquarium controller
Over 16 times more code space & 5X faster than competitive controllers, which guarantees future expandability.
Over 8 times data storage memory than the competition
1 year’s worth of data logs can be stored internally

New Enhanced Control Functionality
Day of Week functionality
Sub minute control added on EnergyBar controlled devices
Default outlet state for all EnergyBar outlets
Second resolution control

Sunrise and Sunset Simulation
The Apex has a special control function which can be used to simulate the varying lengths of days throughout the year. This feature is used to make the length of daylight hours longer in the summer than in the winter. This results in a more realistic simulation of natural lighting variations.

Moon Cycle Simulation
The Apex has another special control function which can be used to simulate the moon cycle in your tank. The lunar simulator is used for this feature and is capable of varying the intensity of light emitted from its LEDs. The intensity variations are controlled by the Apex which is preprogrammed with correct intensity values for each day of the moon cycle. The Apex automatically updates the intensity value depending upon the current setting of the Apex's clock. With this artificial moon cycle, it is possible to induce corals and fish to spawn.

Each pump to be controlled can have an user configured period in which both the on and off times are fully programmable and can range from 1 second to 999 minutes. A variable length feed timer cycle can be initiated with the press of a button and will disable some or all of the pumps in the system (programmed by the user).
