THE APEX BASE UNIT – IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE BRAIN

The Apex Base Unit is basically the brains of your entire Apex System. The Apex Base Unit (ABU) is far different than from what any other controller at this price level is offering. The ABU is basically a small computer, with a built-in web server, whose only job is take care of your aquarium.

It has a 32-bit microprocessor and a built-in web server. The web server makes it possible for your to configure and operate your Apex from any network-connected computer or mobile device – no software to install on a PC – it also means it’s Mac compatible!

The Apex runs at many times the speed of other controllers in its class due to its advanced processor technology (most others use 8 or 16 bit microcontrollers) and its specific use (rather than general purpose) architecture. It also has enough memory on board to store many month’s worth of complete tank data in non-volatile RAM.  Even with a power outage, your tank history and all configurations are safe.

BUILT IN INTERNET CONNECTIVITY

The Apex Base Unit is Internet-ready straight out of the box. Just plug it into your router and you are good to go – no software to install! This means that you can control your tank from any computer (or mobile device) in the house.

There is no need, ever, to connect it directly to a computer to monitor your aquarium or update its firmware. Once connected to Apex Fusion, you can easily access your Apex from anywhere in the world via a web browser or our iOS App!

You will also get an email or text message whenever something is not quite right with your system – whether that is an over-temperature condition in your tank, the pH is out of whack, or there’s a leak on the floor!

BEST SOFTWARE AVAILABLE ON ANY AQUARIUM CONTROLLER

Hands down, the Apex has the most feature-rich, field tested software (tens of thousands of customers) of any controller on the market today. It all starts with the onboard web server inside the Apex Base Unit. This web server is part of the Apex’s firmware and is truly the secret sauce to it’s success.

 

NOT TECH SAVVY, NO WORRIES

Built-in wizards allow even the most technophobic person out there to be able to program the basics like light timers and heater control in a matter of minutes. Then, as you build up confidence and engage the awesome Apex Community Forum, you will be taking it to the next level in no time.
