Since Neptune Systems aquarium products are all about technology, ease, and control, it won’t surprise you that they’ve created a Wireless Expansion Module (WXM) that will control up to 11 wireless VorTech pumps or Radion LED lights over one or multiple tanks.

EcoTech Marine manufactures the VorTech pumps and Radion LED’s which are the most popular products on the market. Neptune’s WXM is dialed in to support EcoTech’s multiple modes like Constant, Reef Crest, Lagoon Random, Pulse, Sync and Anti-Sync. And with the WXM, you can control any pump, any time of day. The WXM will even sync the sunrise, sunset, and moonlight with the moon phases, lightning, and clouds.

Enter in the wireless… With the Neptune Systems Apex and EcoTech VorTech pumps working together, you can initiate these mode changes wirelessly from your mobile, tablet, or computer!

Separate from that, you also don’t have to physically get up to feed the tank or worry about the skimmer. The feed mode is easy to automate with the VorTech and Apex combo. When the feed mode is programmed to run, the return pump and skimmer will shut off while the food is distributed. After the feed time is complete, the VorTech pump goes back to its regularly scheduled program, as do the return pump and the skimmer. The WXM makes everything work together so seamlessly!

Additional WXM features include:

  • Wirelessly controls any of EcoTech’s wireless pumps (WWD or EcoSmart) as well as all Radion LED models.
  • Independent channels to support any combination of pumps and lights up to 11 total.
  • Plug and Play. Automatically recognized when installed into the system.
  • Pumps can be dynamically added/removed from the system.
  • Two AquaBus connectors for flexible expansion via AquaBus.
  • Comes with 3 foot AquaBus cable.
  • Fully upgradeable. WXM firmware and pump firmware can be updated for feature enhancement.
  • LED Status indicator and wireless status indicator.
  • Compatible with all Apex Systems.
