Catch a wave, with the Apex, the VDM, and your pumps.

If you are fortunate enough to own more than one Apex Ready pump, you can sync them up and build some incredible wave flow in your tank. Such wave action is incredibly beneficial to your tank as it stirs up the detritus into the water column so it can be sent into the filtration system. Also, with this kind of pump control you can create very useful feed modes that keep the food in suspension and not the back of the tank or over the overflow. And, you can do all of this at a moments notice, timed, or from the touch of your mobile device!

Want to drive more than four pumps or want to control multiple tanks? No Problem!

Because the Apex is modular by design, you can add multiple VDM modules to enable more channels of pump control. So, if you are one of those people that are crazy about flow or have a huge tank, the Apex with the VDM module is the only way to go.

Four channels of 0-10V pump control or LED Dimming

Simply plug in the industry standard 0-10V plug from Apex Ready pump into one of the  two connectors on the VDM module and you will be on your way to creating waves and other water action as simple or as complex as your creativity demands. The VDM has four channels on two connectors so you can configure each of up to four pumps with their individual control profiles.

Simply plug in the industry standard Apex Ready 0-10V plug from your fixture into one of the two connectors on the VDM module and you will be on your way to creating lighting profiles as simple or as complex as your creativity demands. Or, if you have an unsupported LED fixture or are doing the DIY thing, simply purchase our LED dimming cable to make the connection. Each cable/connector supports two channels of your LED drivers 0-10V inputs.

Advanced dimming options with Apex Ready+ LED fixtures

If you are fortunate enough to own a more advanced, Apex Ready+ fixture such as the Aqua Illuminations Sol or the Acan Lighting fixture, you have an additional set of features made available by the manufacturer by connecting the Advanced LED cable between your LED fixture and the VDM. With this connection you can configure your Apex to do cool things with your light like storms, lightning, moonlighting, or advanced color profiles. . . all at a moments notice, timed, or from the touch of your mobile device!
