IMPORTANT NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: The EnergyBar 832 is for use in North America (USA, Canada, and parts of Mexico) and other locales where the electrical service grid provides 120VAC 60Hz power.  For sale in international regions which use 230VAC 50Hz power, Apex systems are bundled with an EnergyBar 6 equipped with 6 outlets specific to that region (UK, EU, AU, or Schuko). EnergyBar 6 models do not include the EB832’s per-outlet power monitoring, 1LINK or DC24 ports, or per-outlet indicator LEDs.

THE APEX ECOSPHERE-- LESS HASSLE, MORE SUCCESS
Built in WiFi, key parameter monitoring, and reliable equipment control. Prevent catastrophes, take corrective actions, and receive alerts to your smart phone when things go awry. Set reminders, log testing and dosing information, and keep tabs on your aquarium from anywhere in the world. All this and more is possible with the Neptune Apex Controller System!

The Apex's included WiFi allows you to connect to the free Fusion Cloud interface, where you can do everything from calibrating probes to customizing outlets with just a few taps. Fusion also gives you the ability to monitor and control your Apex from anywhere and on nearly every device platform – computer, tablet, or smart phone – Windows, OSX, iOS, or Android.

The Fusion interface has a user-friendly design sure to create a headache-free command center for all your aquarium automation needs. Its drag and drop interface allows you to toggle control switches, graphs, video tiles and more to your dashboard, allowing for easy customization that is focused on your individual monitoring needs. Being that the Fusion is a web-based application, you will never have to endure the rigmarole of endless app updates, clumsy touch screens, or complicated drivers to install. Whenever you open the interface, you are always running the most current version of the software. Set up and configuration is streamlined with an easy-to-follow guided user interface.

Included with the Apex Controller System is the Energy Bar 832-- the power control hub to rule them all. They are the only UL-certified power bars approved for use in aquarium applications. Each of the eight individual outlets has independent power consumption monitoring with its own LED indicator status display, and the power supply feeds an additional three built-in 1LINK ports as well as two 24VDC accessory ports. Now you can connect additional Neptune accessories like the DOS and WAV pump directly to the Energy Bar 832, saving room and eliminating messy cords around your aquarium. 

A3 Apex Base Unit

The A3 Apex is a great entry into gaining full control over your tank, giving you everything you need to get up and running at an affordable price. Monitor temperature, pH, surface leaks, and water level with the ability to control additional aquarium equipment with the included EB832. The A3 Series Apex base unit includes a built-in audible alarm and three FMM ports for connecting all fluid monitoring sensors, an upgrade from the A2 Series which required a separate module purchase. 

Neptune Systems Apex Energy Bar 632 UK

When they decided to create an Energy Bar for this new Apex, it was designed from scratch. The Energy Bar 632 not only has six 240V AC outputs, but also includes an internal 100W 24VDC power supply. That power supply powers three built-in 1LINK ports and two 24VDC accessory ports. Each individual outlet has independent power monitoring and there are individual LED indicators for each outlet. This LED indicates when the outlet is powered. The LED flashes when there is an overload.

The safety of our customers is important. That’s why we design every product according to established safety standards. In the case of the Energy Bar 632, we have gone a step further and the Energy Bar 632 now also meets the CE safety standards.

Feedback from our customers has led to our Energy Bar undergoing significant developments. For years it has been requested to provide a power supply for all individual devices, but it was not possible without pricing the product out of the market. Now it’s here and comes with tons of benefits.

With this new Energy Bar 632 you now know when the pump, skimmer, UV device or other device is not operating properly and an alert message can be sent. This enables you to catch problems as they arise and prevent them from getting worse.

Since the Apex receives continuous power consumption data from the Energy Bar 632, it can be set up to notify you when a device is not using power. An example would be a return pump that shows no power consumption. Or when a skimmer has a clogged airline because the power consumption is different than normal. These high and low limits can be customized for each individual outlet.

With all the functionalities of the Energy Bar 632, it is almost indispensable. For an excellent result and good health of your fish and coral you have a bigger chance of successfully maintaining your aquarium. The Energy Bar 632 is compatible with the ApexEL Entry Level Kit and the Apex Lab Grade Kit

6x 240V AC Outlets all switched with relays rated for millions of cycles

2x Switchable 24VDC outlets for accessories such as small pumps, solenoids, fans etc.

*NEW* MOS Magnetic Optical Sensor

The Neptune MOS replaces the previous OS-1-M and features an updated design that fits into tighter spaces and helps to prevent water incursion into the sensor. The MOS plugs into an Apex FMM port and, using reflected infrared light, will signal your Apex when it changes state from being wet to dry or dry to wet. This sensor can be used for constructing your own ATO (auto-top-off), as a high-level warning sensor in your sump, water storage level sensor, and much more. The sensors can be mounted on any type of reservoir that has up to 1/4" thick walls.

LD-2 Surface Leak Detection Sensor

Neptune's LD-2 is a full sized leak detection probe perfect for inside your stand, on hard floors, on top of skimmer cups, or any other flat surface where an overflow may cause issues. If water ever touches the sensor, your Apex Controller will be instantly notified so you can take corrective action and avoid disaster.

Lab Grade, Double Junction Probes 

The Apex system includes high-quality probes for monitoring your tank's temperature and pH. Calibration is a quick and simple process via the app dashboard, which will automatically recognize when your readings have stabilized and letting you know when to move to the next step-- no more guesswork and reading RAW data. In addition, the double junction pH probe will allow your readings to stay more stable without the need to calibrate as often.

Backwards Compatible and Easily Expandable

If you have any old modules, head units, energy bars, or other Apex accessories they will work flawlessly with the new Apex Controller. Want to add Salinity monitoring? Just connect a PM2 module. Need Dissolved O2 monitoring? Simply add a PM3. The Neptune Systems Apex is expandable and compatible, making it the ultimate reef tank aquarium controller.
