EcoTech and GHL Profilux have recently announced the Profilux controller for the EcoTech Marine’s VorTech pumps. This controller will allow you to control up to 11 VorTech pumps wirelessly and it will be compatible with every flow pattern the pumps have to offer. Additionally, it will support the two newly added flow patterns the EcoSmart controllers brought to the table (Tidal Swell and Nutrient Transport Mode). And if for some reason that’s not enough, you can also utilize the wave functions built into the Profilux controller. The controller doesn’t officially go on sale until September, but pre-orders are currently being taken.
