GHL Announces Industrial Aquarium Controller Line


Aquarium enthusiasts and aquarists have long relied on advanced technology to maintain the health and stability of their aquariums and coral farms. One company that has consistently delivered innovative solutions for aquarium controllers is GHL. We first heard about them in 2006 when we went to MACNA Houston as a vendor. Shortly after that trip we became a GHL dealer through Aquarium Specialty, our retail website. Their latest offering, the GHL Industrial Line of Aquarium Controllers, is gearerd commercial aquariums, aquaculture and climate and ocean research facilities were needs are more demanding and environmental conditions can be much harder on aquarium equipment.

Before delving into the details of the GHL Industrial Line, I think it’s important to understand the reputation of GHL’s build quality. GHL, short for GHL Advanced Technology GmbH, is a German company known for its expertise in aquarium automation and control systems. With years of experience and a solid track record, GHL is recognized as a trusted brand among many aquarists.

Industrial Line Key Features

  1. Modular Design: The modular design of the IL system allows users to combine IL products such as ProfiLux IL, Doser (Maxi) IL, KH + ION Director IL, and much more. These controllers are built to withstand the demands of continuous operation in commercial settings. An IL unit consists of an IP54 rated housing suitable for outdoor use and IL slide-in units integrated into it. Users can connect several IL units together via a data bus for more complex systems. IL products are compatible with other (standard) GHL products, the different product lines can even be used in mixed operation.
  2. Advanced Monitoring: With advanced sensors and monitoring capabilities, aquarists can closely track parameters such as temperature, pH, salinity, and water flow to name a few. This information is crucial for making timely adjustments and preventing any issues that could harm the aquarium’s inhabitants.
  3. Remote Access: The controllers are equipped with remote access and control capabilities. Aquarists can monitor and adjust settings from anywhere with an internet connection, providing peace of mind even when they’re away from their location.
  4. Expandability: As your aquarium’s needs evolve, the GHL Industrial Line can grow with you. The modular nature of the system allows for easy expansion and integration with other aquarium equipment.
  5. User-Friendly Interface: GHL understands the importance of user-friendliness. The controllers feature an intuitive interface that simplifies the management of complex aquarium systems, making it accessible even for aquarists with varying levels of experience.

The GHL Industrial Line of Aquarium Controllers is a significant addition to the world of aquarium automation. While this article refrains from embellishing, it is important to note that GHL’s reputation for quality and reliability speaks for itself. These controllers cater specifically to the needs of demanding aquarists, commercial and large-scale aquariums, offering a robust and customizable solution for maintaining the optimal conditions required for aquatic life to thrive.

GHL is not widely distributed at your typical aquarium stores so your best bet is to search online for a GHL dealer  or our retail online store; Aquarium Specialty.
