4 X Switch Ports
With four switch input ports you can add another level of automation to your tank/system. Add float switches, leak detectors, ATO systems, and much more!

IMPORTANT: Never apply power to the switch inputs. They are designed to simply be shorted together by a contact switch. That is all that's needed to trigger an event.

1 x Relay Port
Program like an outpu
t on the PC4 the relay port will turn on/off a device like a light switch. This port does NOT power the device but switched the line voltage of an item plugged into the port.

The relay port can switch AC or DC power and is ideal for triggering external systems with the ReefKeeper. It's another great automation feature for your tank.

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.

This is my second digital aquatics switch. I'm adding a float switch to my protein skimmer to shut it down if the air line clogs. This is my fifth module on a RKE system and it installed without a hitch. I really only needed one port right now, but it didn't make sense to add another SL1, and the SL2 with Salinity is being revamped. That's my only complaint about DA; their support is sketchy. I'd rate the overall product 3 1/2 to 4 stars.
