APEX outlet configuration planning

insane

New member
Shortly I will be getting an APEX after much research and I get the basics of what they can do but I want to get a better idea of how to connect my equipment properly before I get my equipment.

Equipment on it will be:
2- Sicce pumps on Oct Ext 250skimmer
1- Rio HF 32 return pump
1- Rio + 2500 for in tank circulation
1- 800 watt Finnex heater
1- Magdrive 3 on ATS dump bucket w/two 65w PC
1- 6 head 12v fan unit
1- 72" Blue LED 12v strip light
1- Kalk Stirrer 12v with Niveaumat auto top off 12v
+
72" Belize Sun w/ 6 power cords and electronic ballasts.
1- 400w MH
2- 400w MH
3- 400w MH
4- 160w T-5s
5- LEDs
6- Fans 2 x 4" 110v ?amps


What I am thinking.

12 Channels using 1 EB8 + 1 DC4HD.

*EB8
1) Return pump 1.1amps
2) Circulation pump 0.5amps
3) ATS/Surge pump 0.7amps
4) Skimmer pumps 1.2amps
5) ATO wall wart
6) T5s 1.5amps
7) MH left 4.07amps
8) MH center 4.07amps

total amperage 13.14amps

*DC4HD
9) MH right 4.07amps
10) All LEDs + turf scrubber PCs 1.5amps
11) Fans 1 wall wart + ?
12) Heater 7.3amps

total amperage 12.87amps


The only item I am unsure of the amperage for is the two 4" 110v fans in the Belize. The label on the fans isn't very clear but I think I have left myself enough room on the DC4HD. The heater is huge and too high of a draw to be plugged into a EB8 that has a maximum channel rating of 5amps and 15 amp total maximum for the unit while the DC4HD has a maximum channel rating of 12amps and 15 amp total maximum for the unit.

I will be getting the Apex as a Christmas present of my choosing. I don't want to be greedy and will wait to add more things in the future but I want to make sure I have enough to get started with initialy.

I will be adding onto the system in time with:
Aqua Notes
Lunar Simulator (How many LEDs should I put over a standard 180? I am thinking 5.)
Additional Probe Modules
Additional EB8
Additional DC4HD
Chiller
Calcium reactor
Tunze controllable or Vortech powerheads
UV sterilizer

Aqua notes doesnt work with the Apex unless your talking about the iphone app.
