Digital Aquatics Digital Aquatics APC (Advanced Pump Control) Module

Create a Safe, Natural Environment
Digital Aquatics’ Advanced Pump Controller (APC) module helps you create a safe and natural environment for your fish and coral by giving you full control of Tunze brand Stream pumps (controllable version only). In addition to wavemaking, adding an APC module to your ReefKeeper™ control system will enable you to easily coordinate pump actions with other activities in your aquarium. For example, your APC-equipped ReefKeeper system can simulate a variety of weather conditions by simultaneously controlling your lights and your pumps. You can also use your ReefKeeper system’s standby modes to quiet your aquarium’s pumps during feeding time.

Tunze® Pump Control
The APC module controls all Tunze® brand voltage-controlled stream pumps. The APC module allows you to integrate Tunze® pumps into your system and control them via your ReefKeeper™ (Lite or Elite) controller.

Storm Mode Integration
The APC module allows you to operate your pumps with our new Storm Mode feature. Storm Mode allows for the generation of turbulent flow during time periods that you select.

Night Mode
The APC module features special Night Mode options to calm your tank at night. Night Modes simulate the stillness of the evening hours in your aquarium, giving your fish the ability to rest.

Multi-pump Modes
The APC module’s master/slave and sequential modes help create a natural environment by providing advanced control of multiple pumps. Each APC module can control up to four pumps.

Manufacturer Info

Digital Aquatics Aquarium Supplies
Digital Aquatics was founded in 2004 and has quickly become the most recognized name in aquarium automation. Since the company debuted the original ReefKeeper 1 (now known as the RK1) in 2004, they have gone on to create some of the most flexible, innovative and cost effective aquarium controllers on the market. The revolutionary ReefKeeper Elite (RKE) was unveiled in 2008 and the affordable ReefKeeper Lite (RKL) came out shortly thereafter to appeal to more budget-conscience aquarium hobbyists. In 2010, Digital Aquatics released a reptile version, the HerpKeeper, as well as the aptly named PondKeeper. ReefKeeper controllers simplify aquarium keeping duties by monitoring and controlling a variety of water parameters and equipment including but not limited to lighting, water flow, heating, cooling, pH and ORP.
