Neptune Systems, the company that brings us the AquaController, has announced that it it has developed a wireless interface which will allow AquaControllers the ability to control wireless Vortech pumps. Dubbed the “AquaBus”, the VorTech interface module will allow for the independent control of multiple pumps, as well as a few other options that have yet to be developed.
Here’s the press release from Curt Pansegrau, president of Neptune Systems:
Neptune Systems, the leading manufacturer of aquarium controllers is developing a wireless interface which will allow for the control of EcoTech Marine’s line of VorTech wireless pumps.
“We are extremely excited about this new product”, says Curt Pansegrau, president of Neptune Systems. “The feature rich interface module allows for the market leading VorTech pumps to be used to their fullest potential. With development underway and prototypes already running in the lab, we are pleased to be the first controller company to utilize this versatile wireless interface technology.”
The AquaBus based VorTech interface module will allow for the independent control of multiple pumps. In addition, firmware updates of both the interface and the VorTech pumps as wells as reporting of pump status and diagnostic information is possible. Like all Apex accessories the VorTech Interface Module is also plug-n-play, so setup and configuration is extremely easy.
Internal development has already begun with working prototypes running in the lab. Beta testing will begin shortly with full production scheduled in Q1 2010.
