Neptune Systems Apex TRIDENT and Apex Aquarium Controller Kit

The Trident is an automated testing system that regularly tests alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium in your saltwater aquarium — and then communicates this information to your Apex so you can get alerts, and change your dosing. When combined with the DOS (available separately) it creates a fully automated system for the proper dosing of supplements, maintaining them at consistent levels.

A key ingredient to a great reef aquarium is maintaining proper levels of Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium.

Neptune Systems Apex Aquarium Controller - EB832, Temp Probe, Salinity Probe, Double Junction Lab pH & Lab

The Neptune Systems Apex Aquarium Controller System includes everything to monitor and control your aquariums from anywhere in the world.  It monitors temperature, ph, orp, salinity along with 8 individual controllable outlets.  

The Neptune Systems Apex Aquarium Controller System does all the dirty work for your aquarium so you can do more important things like fragging your corals or layng on your couch and enjoying your aquarium. The Apex System has built in Wi-Fi, an incredible 802.11g/n Wi-Fi connection with reliability that rivals a wired connection.  The Apex System comes with all the essentials for monitoring and controlling a reef like controllable power outlets, temperature, pH, ORP, salinity, etc.  What's awesome about the Neptune Systems is that it allows you to monitor and control the conditions of you tank using your laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.You don't have to go to your aquarium to check the conditions of your tank anymore. Everything can be monitored and controlled from the touch of your phone. Talk about convenience!

The Energy Bar 832 was redesigned from the ground up and includes eight 120V AC outlets, an internal 100W 24VDC power supply, three built-in 1LINK ports and two 24VDC accessory ports. Each individual outlet has power monitoring and there are individual LED indicators for each outlet.

FINALLY, TOSS ALL THOSE TEST KITS!

Syringes, vials, colors, endpoints, expiration dates — now a thing of the past for Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium. Now, with zero effort, you get up to date values for Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium — anywhere in the world!

HOW IT WORKS

The Trident is a self contained automatic titration colorimeter. That’s quite a mouthful, for sure, so let’s state it as simply as we can. The Trident is basically automating what you (and top scientists) do already when you test your water, that is, perform a color changing titration and interpret the results.

On a scheduled basis the Trident carefully mixes its reagents with a small amount of sample water from your aquarium. While doing this, it is measuring (titrating with a precision peristaltic pump) the amounts of each that are necessary to reach an expected color change (determined by the electronic colorimeter). When it finishes the titration, it sends this sample/reagent fluid to your waste container. It then interprets the results of that test and logs the value into your Apex.

EASY PLUG AND PLAY SET UP

From the box to testing in under 15 minutes! Unlike other testing systems, there are no reagents to mix, tubes to cut, or pumps or probes to calibrate. Simply plug in one cable, two tubes, and run the setup task on the Apex Fusion mobile app — it holds your hand through the installation with helpful videos along the way.

CONSISTENCY AND PRECISION, TEST AFTER TEST

The Trident tests with a precision of +/- 0.05 dKh for Alkalinity and 15ppm for Calcium and Magnesium. This is better than humans can do consistently with every hobby-grade test kit on the market.

UNDERSTAND YOUR AQUARIUM LIKE NEVER BEFORE

When you start getting the regular data coming in from the Trident you will be amazed at the things you can see happening. The daily light cycle swing on calcium carbonate uptake. A salinity drop by watching magnesium. An out of sync dosing of calcium. This increased understanding ultimately helps you maintain a better, more successful reef.

OUT OF RANGE ACTIONS AND ALERTS

You can set up your Apex to alert you, or take immediate action(s) when a parameter falls outside of the safe zone you specify. As just one example, you might be dosing an Alkalinity solution and a misconfiguration could lead to overdosing of your tank. The Trident will catch that, alert you, and give you more time to make that correction before its too late and to save your aquarium. The data from the Trident can also be used to turn on and off other devices (like dosers or solenoids) to protect your tank even more.

AUTOMATIC DOSING CONTROL – ULTIMATE STABILITY

The more stable you maintain proper levels of Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium, the better your corals will grow and thrive. But coral uptake of these supplements often changes and requires us not only to perform more testing, but also seems to put us in a never-ending state of adjusting our dosing levels.

The Trident, when paired up with one or more of our DŌS systems solves this problem with Automatic Dosing Control (ADC)

When configured on the Apex, ADC will take the results it receives from the Trident and use them to gradually turn up or down the amount of additive your DŌS delivers. But, don’t worry, we have built this feature with safety in mind. With ADC you set your target value and your starting dosing amount and ADC will only tune that dosing level +/-35%. If it takes more than that amount of dosing to keep your aquarium at your target value, then the Apex will stop ADC, revert to your starting dosing amount, and alert you that you need to manually adjust your dosing level. Then, ADC can be reenabled and it will continue to guide your DŌS so that it keeps you as close to your target value as possible.

It is possible to use ADC for all three tests – Alkalinity, Calcium, and Magnesium. You can also use one test value to adjust up or down more than one additive delivered by the DŌS (i.e. Triton system).

SIMPLE, INFREQUENT REAGENT CHANGES

When using the default testing schedule of four (4) alkalinity, two (2) calcium, and two (2) magnesium tests a day, the reagent stored inside the Apex will last a full month. And adding new reagent is super simple — just slide out the drawer, remove the old bottle(s), and replace them with new ones. If you desire, you can also run a calibration with the included calibration standard.

    Product Rating:

    Glad I finally bought this. Was easy to set up, it does most of it for you. Has worked flawlessly since I set it up. Bought the DOS to go with it. Aqua Cave was great. Quick ship. Dont forget to order the probe holder to go with it.

  2. Apex + Trident Review by Chris W
    Product Rating:

    I am so glad I finally pulled the trigger and moved into the 21st century. If you despise testing and record-keeping as much as I do this thing is the way to go. The Apex does so much more than simply turning outlets on and off you can set it up to Auto dose if your calcium gets low. you can use as a safety to turn off heaters if they stick in the on position. It'll text you or email you when there's a problem. Every tank I have in the future will have an Apex in one form or other controlling the entire set up. I will soon be adding dosing pumps ATO and possibly another power bar to run all the lights and filters for my copepod and macro algae grow stations (Posted on 4/14/2020)
