EcoTech Marine The VorTech Wireless Wave Driver will upgrade any MP40 model pump to an MP40W model. It only requires that four screws be removed from the lid of the MP40 driver box, and the motor’s plug gently removed and plugged into the new Wireless Wave Driver board. Then the lid is gently snapped in place and your pump is now wave controllable. Multiple Wireless Wave Drivers can be combined to provide random and pulsing wave modes.

Wave Modes:

Reef Crest Random Mode- set the potentiometer to your maximum desired speed and the VorTech Wireless Wave Driver automatically randomizes the flow throughout your tank. The pump will vary from one speed to another rapidly to simulate the high-energy conditions of a natural reef crest environment.

Lagoon Random Mode- set the potentiometer to your maximum desired speed and the VorTech Wireless Wave Driver automatically randomizes the flow throughout your tank. The pump will vary slowly from one speed to another to simulate a calmer, lagoonal reef environment.

Synch Pulse Mode- When entered into Synch Pulse Mode, pumps will automatically synch with the master pump to provide pulsing flow throughout the aquarium. The potentiometer is used to adjust the maximum speed and then is used to adjust the frequency. The minimum speed is automatically set to the minimum pump speed to create as strong a pulse as you desire. Other pumps can be placed on the same side of the aquarium as the master pump to create standing waves in your tank.

Anti-Synch Pulse Mode- When entered into Anti-Synch Pulse Mode, pumps will operate inverse to the master pump. Therefor, everytime the master pump is at the maximum speed of the pulse cycle, the slave pumps entered into Anti-Synch Pulse Mode will be at the minimum speed of the pulse cycle, and vice-versa. Place these pumps on the opposite side of the tank as a master pump to create tidal currents within your aquarium.

Feed Mode:

When any one pump is entered into feed mode, all pumps shut down for 10 minutes to allow you to feed your aquarium.

Battery Backup:

The Wireless Wave Driver can also be used with the battery backup accessory.

IncludeS:
  • Instruction Sheet
  • One Driver Board
  • one driver box lid
  • one driver box base

Manufacturer Info

EcoTech Marine has revolutionized the way people think about water movement in reef aquariums. Our technologically superior pumps produce unmatched broad yet gentle flow, while placing the motor outside the tank—preserving the beauty of your aquarium and enhancing the health of your aquarium ecosystem. The EcoTech leadership team consists of aquarium enthusiasts and engineers with a penchant for challenging the status quo. When EcoTech took root in the science labs of Lehigh University and University of Oklahoma, we realized there were serious differences between the native aquatic ecosystems in nature and the terrestrial habitats created in aquariums—and that little was being done to address this gap in the marketplace. Since that day, we have worked tirelessly to improve the “state of the art” to enable our customers to have the healthiest, safest and smartest aquarium possible. That’s why our products offer a wide variety of easy-to-program modes and have been thoroughly tested and endorsed by marine-biologists—making it the most versatile and life-like pump on the market.

I purchased 2 Ecotech wireless drivers to upgrade my year and half old Vortechs. It was one of the best investments I have made for my barebotton SPS tank. What I really like about the controller is the different wave modes that can be set. Found the controller to be a lot easier to use and set up t...Read More

“Vortech Driver Upgrade”

Well made, the procedure to change out the drivers was easy enough. The pre set flow (mode) choices are great, and the ability to synch/ anti synch is cool.... although I wish they had separate buttons for each vs. the scrolling color change. I really like that they can wirelessly communicate (mas...Read More

“wave driver”

5.0
I thought that the vortec pumps were awesome by themself but since adding the wave driver upgrade, my lps and sps are so much happier. I think that the reef crest setting is the best. If you have these pumps you really need to add this feature.
