Great for adding switches

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I used one of these to connect float switches to my Apex and now I have automated my freshwater production as well as top offs for 2 tanks. It has definitely been worth it. To make everything work I also bought an electric solenoid valve for the RODI top off, 2 aqua lifter pumps for the tank top offs and float switches for level monitoring.

Comments: This product is great, I used the digital aquatics float switches with this and it works great for auto-top off. As for water on the floor sensors I have heard that the fridge leak detection ones work well without the need to buy the separate module,I have yet to use it for this function though and can only attest to the float switch use as an ATO.

Comments: The tinny screws to connect the switches to are really small. But it works. Just had a sump over flow and got the alarms and text messages and e-mail on my phone telling me so just last night.

Comments: Seems well built, and works fine so far. Wire clamps seem to hold firmly, and are not as difficult to use as I had heard (the little calibration screwdriver that comes with pH meters and refractometers is the right size for the screws on the BOB). Seems like $40 is a bit much for such a simple device, but if it works well I suppose it is worth it.

I/O For APEX

by
Reviewers Rating Excellent!


Posted: 12/19/2010 from WOODBRIDGE, CA UNITED STATES
5.0 5
Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: Easy to use. In the newer version you screw on the wires, and not clip them on like the picture above. Did not come with instructions, there in the APEX Manual. When plugged to the APEX, you will not see the switches, just use SwitchX in your code: Ex. If Switch(1-6) OPEN/CLOSED Then ON/OFF

It works

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: Easy and simple to hook up, works as advertised. My only 2 issues; 1 - The ground for the switch connections should have a bigger hole. There are 6 connections which all share the same ground, have fun trying to get all six into 1 hole for the ground! 2 - The cord which connects to the apex should be bigger. Not much options to remotely locate it if you want to have the breakout box closer to your switches.

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I had the I/O box for about three weeks before I got the nerve to remove the float switches I had in place and were working. It took all of about 4 minutes and it was done. Super easy and works well with my Aqua Controller III.Only downside is the instructions are in the manual for the Aqua Controller and don't come with the switch.
