First Look: Neptune System's new Apex Jr controller!

The upcoming Neptune System Apex Jr controller

The Apex Jr will replace the Aquacontroller Jr in Neptune System’s line-up.  The Apex Jr does not have a built-in display and is interfaced via ethernet (the controller includes an embedded webserver for web-based interface).  This means you can control the unit via your computer or smartphone.  An optional display (approximately $100) is also available for those who like to interface their controller the old-fashioned way.

  • Starting at 9.99 – Iphone application w/ apex Jr module and temperature probe.
  • Built-in Ethernet port.  Has all the same monitoring, control, and configuration features of the apex and Apex Lite

  • Plug and Play AquaBus expansion.
  • Expandable up to 5 AquaBus accessories.
  • Simple firmware updates over Ethernet
