Controller Details & Compatability
Multi-channel Lighting Control
- Control up to 32 independent channels of dimmable and non-dimmable lamps
- Freely programmable
- True calendar moon phase: Simulates the lunar rhythm in harmony with nature and promotes species-typical behavior.
- Sunrise and sunset simulation
- Seasonal lighting: ProfiLux Aquarium Controllers (beginning with version 3) are capable of simulating the seasonal cycle of sunshine duration and sun intensity.
- Thunderstorm simulation: Simulate lighting-effects in conjunction with dimmable GHL lights. Programmable storm parameters allow you to change the frequency, intensity, and duration of a thunderstorm.
- Rainy day simulation
- Cloud simulation: Programmable random generators allow you to define the beginning, intensity, duration, and speed of a cloud – soeach time new clouds are created.
- Temperature-dependent light reduction: for short-term temperature peaks on hot summer days.
- Tropical twilight
- Gentle lighting transition from summer-time to winter-time laid out across several days.
- PWM interface for LEDs
Lab Grade Measurement and Controllability
- Water temperature monitoring/control: Program heaters, ground heaters, and cooling devices for maintaining temperature; Nightly cooling can also be programmed. Intelligent summer-circuit for optional ground heating.
- pH monitoring/control: Program up and down pH regulation via CO2-addition (pH-decrease) or via Alkalisation (pH-increase); Nightly decrease can also be programmed.
- Redox monitoring/control
- Conductivity (Salinity) monitoring/control
- Oxygen monitoring/control
- Humidity monitoring/control
- Air temperature monitoring/control
- Measurement of KH or Alkalinity (Coming soon)
- Universally switchable inputs: For pH and ORP; inputs are already compatible for future ion-selective electrodes (e.g., Ca)
- Galvanically isolated sensor inputs: For high measurement sensitivity
- Sensor life monitor: Automatically records total operation hours for all sensors; can be reset as needed.
- Menu-guided calibration for all sensors and probes.
- Sick fish therapy program:
Some fish diseases require a temporary water temperature adjustment. ProfiLux can be programmed to slowly lower the temperature for a set-time. Normal temperature is automatically set after an adjustable time.
- Universal analog and digital inputs
- Level functions: For level sensors, leakage-sensors, automatic water change functions, etc.
- Flow (stream) pump control
Versatile Pump Control
- Independently control up to 16 stream pumps
- Wide selection of flow modes: High/low tide, Surge, Random, and much more
- Variable wave duration: Program wave times from 0.4s…60s in 10 ms steps
- Programmable random-wave length and intensity
- Various wave mode options: Sine wave, right-angled wave, short right-angled wave
- Nocturnal flow: Programmable flow decrease within a desired time range
- Thunderstorm mode
- Feed pause adjustable: Programmable pump behavior during feed pauses
- 3rd party pump compatibility (Tunze®, Hydor Koralia®, Abbyzz®, Royal Exclusiv®, EcoTech®, as well as all pumps with a 1-10V interface)
- Continuous monitoring and control of all water values
- Acoustic and visual alarm
- Specialized, efficient, and robust operating system – ProfiLuxOS
- All settings stored in a non-volatile storage (FRAM) – power failures will not cause data loss.
