    My Apex Tunze Settings and Profile examples. Help for others and feedback appreciated

    I set mine up using these instructions and used my laptop. While possible to do via mobile I would think it would take much more time and be more prone to errors/typos.

    During a power outage with Neptune

    Interesting. I see what you have done there with the relay and that makes sense. Your design will work because you are essentially breaking the connection to the controller in the event of a power outage. That will work. The other option is to power your controller during the outage so it...

    During a power outage with Neptune

    Interesting about switching pumps and it works. I would have to agree that it is something in the one pump. Your code all looks good and is not what is turning it off. I am not familiar with the 1073 pump so not sure what you mean by the splitter. Are you referring to the box where you...

    During a power outage with Neptune

    What you describe above should work if I understand it correctly. The only thing I can think of is that there may be an issue with your Apex code for the VDM outlet controlling the 1073.050 pump. Can you post it here for review? I am wondering you you have an if power EB8 off then off...

    Neptune Shutting Off Vectra W/Built In Float Switch Input

    It should be very easy to do what you want with a relay however it would require an outlet on the EB8 to control the state. I bought a 110v one on Amazon recently that could be used as either normally open or closed. I have prime so the total cost with shipping was less than 10.00 for the...

    Apex Jr. or just a long bus cable?

    Go with the long aquabus cable for a number of reasons. Having 1 controller in the long run will be best.

    vectra and neptune Apex

    The Royal exclusiv red dragon pumps are apex controllable. This is the route I went with the Black Friday sales since u was tired of waiting for Ecotech to make the vectra apex compatible.

    About Royal Exclusiv

    I will say I have been more than pleased with the help and support from the Royal Exclusiv team. I would not think twice about ordering more equipment from them when/if needed. I have a Red Dragon pump on my Vertex skimmer and recently bought the RD3 80w pump for my return pump. I am out of...
