Apex WXM

I have had the Apex main controller for 6 months now. It was time to start another tank and needed a new MP10w. I got both here, they both setup in 15min. I love tweaking the pumps modes and intensity on the fly.

Works Great!!

I literally just plugged this in and the WXM essentially found my XR15W Pro lights by itself. It works fantastic and provides great control over the lights. Very impressed with this product. No problems at all!

Very nice

My thoughts on the Apex WXM module, it’s pretty straight forward once you get the right combinations to link the Vortech pump together, it took me about 30 minutes to get all of pumps up and running. Configuring the pumps with the Apex fusion was really easy to do. It took a few try’s to get the pumps the way I wanted them but in the end it was worth it. Ps do make sure on any of the Apex modules to make sure you update the firmware first, it will make the difference in a happy ending. BTW on each of the Vortech pump that you will be controlling with WXM module it has you in the last step press the set button once, but for mine it took at least 6 to 7 presses of the SET button to link up. Here is the internet link I used for this set up:http://www.neptunesystems.com/vortechgs/. After reading this manual it all fell into place..

Awesome!

This product is wonderful. The control it gives an aquarist over flow is terrific. I thought my Vortechs were the shnizzle before, and with automatic Nutrient Export modes in the middle of the night my tank has never looked better. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the directions are terrible.

Near perfect

The WXM module was a christmas gift, and a welcome addition to my tank. I have a 36 gallon bowfront with 2 MP10ES-W's. In the past I had to manually do everything, and if I wanted to change modes, it involved more interaction with the Master MP-10 (had them in a master-slave setup). For those who are familiar with the Vortech pumps, you know that the setup isn't a straight forward process. My only issue with the WXM is it's initial setup. As with all of the 'programming' associated with all things Neptune, it's a wee bit of a pain and there is a learning curve. My system FINALLY recognized the module on the 3rd try. When it did, I then had to go through the programming. This is the reason for the loss of half a star. Once it's all programmed, it's a great addition to the tank, and a perfect 'companion' to any Vortech pump. Now my flow is awesome...it's dynamic, changing according to what I programmed so I can spend more time looking at the tank and less time trying to readjust it.

Product is Top Notch! Takes a little research, but once you get it you'll wonder how you made it without one! Controlling 2 Kessill 360's, 2 Vortech pumps, skimmer, and main pump right now with more to come!
