Digital Aquatics Reef Keeper LITE System LEVEL 1 (BASIC).

**** PRODUCT MANUAL ****

**** USER GUIDE ****

The new ReefKeeper Lite is a big change to business as usual! It's small, expandable and perfect for nano tanks, beginners, and people looking for a mid level controller!

The ReefKeeper Lite or RKL as it's known here, has a 5 (mechanical) button interface and a larger 16 x 2 LCD display for easy readability. While some of the advanced modules and features of the RKE are not available for the RKL, it will have more than enough power to monitor and control single tank systems, as well as small to mid sized tanks alike!

The RKL is the only controller under $150 that offers four outlets and temperature control while still providing the customer an upgrade path as their system or needs grow!

With up to four modules, this new controller is perfect for streamlining your tank without breaking the bank!

Three levels to pick from:

Level 1:
* 1 x Head unit
* 1 x PC4 (4 outlets)
* 1 x temperature probe

Level 2:
* 1 x Head unit
* 1 x PC4 (4 outlets)
* 1 x SL1 (Inputs: pH, ORP, Temperature, 2 x Switch Ports)
* 1 x Temperature probe

Level 3:
* 1 x Head unit
* 2 x PC4 (total of 8 outlets)
* 1 x SL1 (Inputs: pH, ORP, Temperature, 2 x Switch Ports)
* 1 x Temperature probe
* 1 x FREE Digital Aquatics pH probe

Any level you purchase can be added to, up to the four module limit. The RKL can interface with PC4s, SL1s, and the MLC. It can NOT interface with the SL2, NET and other modules yet to be released. Those modules require the RKE system with more advanced features and abilities.

NEW - Expandability!
The RKL can interface with up to 4 modules in almost any configuration you'd like. (Limited to PC4s, SL1s and MLCs)

NEW - Data reporting
The RKL can report the min, max and average over the last 1 hour for all inputs and outputs!

NEW - Improved 5 button interface
The RKL has a 5 button interface; a big improvement over traditional 3 button interfaces that are currently used for entry level controllers!

NEW - 16 dedicated timers
You can set up to 16 timers with day of week capability!

NEW - Audible and Visual feedback
The RKL offers a first for an entry level controller with audible and visual feedback!

NEW - 16 dedicated alarms
Get informed! Set alarms to alert you of almost any event in your system that you need to know about

NEW - Control functions
Improved controller, multi-timer, light, lunar, and pump controls help keep you in complete control of your system!

Upgradeable Firmware with USB Adapter
Updating the RKL via USB when new software features are released is easy and straight forward. Better yet it's included at no extra cost!

Night Mode - Independently Programmable
Night mode can be configured independent of your light configuration so that moonlights and pumps can be adjusted in the evening times.

Wavemaker
There are 2 wavemaker cycles in the ReefKeeper Lite, cycles A and b. When a channel is designated as a pump you can select a wavemaker cycle A or B. The two alternate opposite each other to simulate wave motion. Under the wavemaker setup you choose how long you want each cycle time to be by dialing an A/B cycle time. During night mode the cycle can be turned off to give a calming affect.

Standby/Feed mode
Just as in all Digital Aquatics controllers, the RKL has a Standby mode that can be programmed from 1 to 59 minutes. When in "Standby" ReefKeeper Lite turns off the powerheads and sump and skimmer pumps that are programmed to be off during standby mode for the set time or until "Standby" is backed out of.

Standby/Feed mode helps reduce the bio load on the tank by maximizing the food eaten by fish and corrals and minimizing waste.
Food will not get whisked away into the sump filter and to dead spots in your tank. Standby mode is also useful when it is time to perform maintenance on your tank and you need all the water pumps to be temporarily turned off.

Head unit can be mounted in a number of ways for the custom professional look
The display unit has several mounting options to accommodate different configurations. It can be mounted flush to your hood/cabinet for a sleek look by cutting out a rectangle. It can also be mounted easily to any flat surface with or without the mounting tabs.

Splash proof face plate
The front of the remote display has a custom faceplate so that a little water on it doesn't cause any problems. The unit menu system can be navigated with wet hands without any problems.

Internal backup battery for clock and settings
The internal battery will last for years keeping the time and settings of the ReefKeeper Lite. A power outage will not require the adjustments that traditional light timers need after the power is restored.

Simple menu system for easy configuration
The menu system is an easy-to-use interface that allows you to setup the ReefKeeper Lite to meet your specific needs. The 5 buttons under the display are used to navigate through the menu for setting up which features you want to link to which outlets and other setup.

  1. Good entry level controller Review by Rick

    The RKL is a very good entry level controller for those wanting to run one tank. It is expandable to do all you would need for a single tank and would probably run 2 smaller tanks if you were not running alot of add ons.
    The documentation is a bit light weight and if you look at the RKL support forum you will find a programming error that you must be aware of to not be setting temps and temp triggers at below zero F. levels. (Posted on 1/14/2012)

  2. Works Great! Review by SUP

    I have three tanks (29, 60 cube, 75). All have a RKL system operating the lights and heater. I never have to worry about lighting time period or whether the temp. is too high / low as the RKL controller takes care of this.

    The RKL is very easy to program. With four direct plug-ins, you can directly control these items. It also comes with a Temp. sensor that makes checking the temp. as simple as looking at the display. It has many other features including a wavemaker setting.

    For the price, you cannot beat this unit. No problems with three units. Dependable, inexpensive, easy to operate, simple to mount. Only unit I will buy.

    IMO best Reef controller for the price on the market today.

  4. YOU CANT BEAT THIS FOR THE PRICE Review by GDABOLS

    I BOUGHT THIS TO CONTROL A NEW 800 WATT TITANIUM HEATER AFTER TWO CONTROLLERS ON TWO OTHER TITANIUM HEATERS WENT OUT. I WAS USING THREE 250 WATT GLASS HEATERS THAT THE THERMOSTATS GOT STUCK GOING BOTH WAYS. I LOST SEVERAL FRAGS. NOW, I'M USING THIS REEFKEEPER LITE TO CONTROL A COUPLE FANS ON MY SUMP, THE HEATER, MY CHILLER, AND HALF MY LIGHTING. MY HOUSE WAS AT 85 DEGREES TODAY AND THE TEMP WAS STILL ROCK SOLID STABLE. MAYBE 3 TENTHS OF A DEGREE VARIATION, SET TO 78, FANS ONLY, CHILLER IS SET TO 80. (Posted on 6/15/2010)

  5. Reefkeeper Lite is Great Review by Tom Toro

    Im using this as a temp controller, but its capable of a lot more than that. Its only $100, about the same as a good heat controller.

    When it gets too hot, the fan goes on. When it gets too cold, the heaters kick on. No more guessing and temp fluctuations. No more heaters sticking on and cooking the tank.

    Easy to program and I know Ill be using more of its features in the future.

    Great value, great product. (Posted on 2/28/2010)
