The HYDROS WaveEngine 0-10V Tunze Adapter is required to control Tunze pumps with the WaveEngine.
You will also need a HYDROS WaveEngine 0-10V Quad Cable for this application.
The way it works is as follows:
- Connect the Quad Cable to the WaveEngine
- Connect the Tunze Adapter to the Quad Cable
- Connect the Tunze Adapter to your Tunze pump controller
You can control up to four 0-10V Tunze pumps with the WaveEngine. To do this, you would need the following:
- 1 x HYDROS WaveEngine 0-10V Quad Cable
- 4 x HYDROS WaveEngine 0-10V Tunze Adapter*
*You don’t have to use four pumps. If you only had two pumps, you would only need 1 x Quad Cable and 2 x Tunze Adapters. We used four as our example since you can connect a maximum of four pumps with a Quad Cable.
The reason an additional adapter is needed to control Tunze pumps with a WaveEngine is because Tunze pump controllers have a 9-pin jack rather than the more common 3.5 mm stereo jack.
Combine your Tunze pumps with pumps from other brands using the HYDROS WaveEngine for a complete water circulation solution!
Make pumps from different manufacturers work together to provide a single, integrated flow management system. You can now use a VorTech™ MP40WQD at one end of your tank and a Reef Octopus Octo Pulse 4 at the other end of the tank and have them work together simultaneously, opposite each other or completely different. Best of all, it isn’t limited to two pumps! Add a Maxspect Gyre into the pattern if you want too.
Do you have a controllable return pump or skimmer?
Bring them to the party because the HYDROS WaveEngine will control them too!
The clutter of power bricks, cables and controllers is becoming an increasing problem for reef keepers. The four pump driver outputs on the HYDROS WaveEngine replace the pump controller, power supplies and any necessary external wireless control modules. Best of all, the HYDROS WaveEngine can run four pumps off a single power supply!
Needless to say, it is easy to install. Simply toss out your existing power supplies and controllers, connect the HYDROS WaveEngine and you’re ready to start moving water.
0-10V INPUT CONTROL
Control any pump via variable speed INPUT. Unlike other controllers that require intricate programming on pumps connected via 0-10V, the HYDROS WaveEngine allows 0-10V INPUT connected Pumps to take full advantage of all native flow modes and presets without complicated coding.
REVERSE PUMP DRIVE
Some pumps can provide additional pattern options by running in reverse. For example, the Reef Octopus Octo Pulse 4 changes from a highly directed flow to a gentle broad push if you run it in reverse. The HYDROS WaveEngine allows you to take advantage of Reverse Drive to further increase the available flow patterns.
CROSS ENGINE SYNCHRONIZATION
Multiple HYDROS WaveEngines can be used to control even larger number of pumps and the patterns will remain perfectly synchronized. A pump connected to HYDROS WaveEngine “A” will run in perfect synchronization with a pump connected to HYDROS WaveEngine “B”.
A FREE and easy to use iOS and Android compatible app allows you to control everything including flow modes, schedules, pump configuration, as well as monitor performance. You will have no problem with connection because the app can run in cloud mode or local mode.
Cloud mode allows you to communicate with your HYDROS WaveEngine when an internet connection is available. The HYDROS WaveEngine system is part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Internet of Things (IoT) platform, guaranteeing high security and reliability.
Local control gives you the option of direct access to your control settings in the event your internet connection is unavailable. No matter your situation, the HYDROS WaveEngine will work to keep your tank alive!
An optional battery backup system (sold seperately) is available so that the HYDROS WaveEngine will move into more energy-efficient patterns (defined by you) to allow circulation to continue through the power failure automatically.
REAL-TIME MONITORING AND NOTIFICATIONS
You can set up text message alerts and/or emails to be notified if a pump is blocked or disconnected. If total power failure takes place at your home, bringing down your entire tank and internet connection, you will still be notified via email or text.
Do your pumps ever get dirty and drop in performance?
The HYDROS WaveEngine will monitor the power being consumed by each pump along with its shaft RPM and will notify you if the pump’s performance is suffering and may require maintenance.
