HYDROS WaveEngine Direct Drive Compatible
The HYDROS WaveEngine is a multi-brand, multi-pump controller. It allows you to control, monitor, and power pumps from different brands together using a single app. Finally, pumps from different brands can work together under a unified platform!
In addition to wireless and 0-10V control, the WaveEngine has the ability to control and power up to 4 pumps. Using the Direct Drive ports on the front of the WaveEngine, you can plug in pumps from different brands like IceCap, Reef Octopus, and Maxspect so you can power 4 pumps off a single power supply. By utilizing the Direct Drive ports, you no longer need the external controllers that are included with these pumps. If you’re using 4 pumps, imagine all the clutter you can clear out of your stand by not having to use 4 power bricks and 4 controllers and instead having one of each.
Due to the growing popularity of the WaveEngine, brands like IceCap are offering “pump only” versions of their products that do not include the external controller and power supply. Now, for a much lower price (you’ll save $100!), you can purchase just the pump itself and the mounting base so you can directly connect the pump to the WaveEngine. All you will need is the appropriate adapter, in this case, the HYDROS IceCap Gyre WaveEngine Pump Adapter, and you’ll be able to do things with flow that you never thought possible!
IceCap Gyre Dual Pump WiFi Controller Compatible
The IceCap Gyre Dual Pump WiFi Controller is all-new for 2020! It is powered by the CoralVue HYDROS platform and is compatible with all generations of IceCap Gyre Pumps. That’s right! Not only is the Gyre Dual Pump WiFi Controller capable of powering and controlling the two current generation of IceCap Gyre Pumps, the 2K and 4K, it is also backward compatible with the previous generation 1K and 3K pumps.
The Gyre 2K Uses Revolutionary Crossflow Technology
Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.
On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving the sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The flow of water is so strong that it would bounce back from the opposite side to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, i.e., generating “gyre flows.”
A) Virtually no dead spots
B) Evenly distributed flow rate throughout the entire aquarium
C) Water bounces back from the other side to create a full circulation, ie. generating “gyre flows”
