The control unit is the heart of the “Aquarium Controller” system.
With this control unit the user can configure the settings of an aquarium and analyse data in a clear and intuitive way.
The screen makes programming and monitoring easy, and also makes it possible to set and display graphs. The main feature of the control unit is its ability to be reprogrammed with a PC so that all of the functions currently available and those, which will be implemented in the future, can be updated. With one single control unit the Aquarium Controller system currently features the following functions:

  • Management of one or more aquariums
    It is possible to create a system consisting of one control unit and several Power Units (up to ten). This enables the user to manage several aquariums at the same time, even if they are very different from each other.
  • Manual control of the plugs (from 6 to 80 sockets)
    The user can manually control each individual plug of the system. This makes it possible to do any kind of maintenance without having to physically disconnect the utilities.
  • Multi-timer function on each plug (from 35 to 350 programmes)
    Through the Power Unit this function controls the automatic activation and deactivation of pumps, neon and incandescent lights, skimmers and any other equipment.
  • Wave Effect
    This function alternately activates two or even three pumps in repeating cycles, and can also be programmed with an alternating pause if desired.
  • Tide effect
    This function alternately activates two pumps with fixed cycles of 6.15 hours each (tide time).
  • Summer function
    This function powers the heating cable underneath the gravel at intervals of 5 minutes/h during the periods in which it would normally not used (summer).
  • Power Cut Controls
    This function records the duration of a power outage. If an outage lasts for more than an hour, the outputs selected during its programming will remain deactivated when the power returns.
  • Acoustic and visual alarms
    It is possible to set one or more alarms to warn the user in the event of an anomaly.

  • Electronic agenda to organise routine or special maintenance.
    This function allows the user to save reminders that can be repeated in cycles at any time; an acoustic and visual signal will be activated at the set time.
  • Reading and monitoring parameters:
    temperature (with supplied sensor)- Level - pH- Redox – Fresh Water Conductivity - Marine Density and Water Leakage.
    This feature allows the user to measure and display (using the appropriate sensors and interfaces) the values of the Temperature, Level, pH, Redox, Freshwater Conductivity and Marine Density. Based on the values the user can modify the state of the plugs, by turning the connected utilities on or off.
  • Automatic acknowledgement of devices connected (Plug & Play)
    This function automatically detects any original Aquatronica accessory connected to the system, and automatically enables the relevant menu.
  • PC connection
    This function allows the user connect the system to a PC, which makes the setting programs faster and easier. With this interface the user can back-up the data recorded by the system for future analysis.
  • Reprogrammable software
    This makes it possible to continuously update the software of the control unit, a feature which places this product above all other in its category: using a PC connection the user can update the controller with functions which were unavailable at the time of purchase, without having to replace any components in the system.
