Technical data connection cable for Red Dragon® 3 Speedy pump :
for the connection of your Red Dragon® 3 (150W & 230W) pump with 10V connection to your aquarium-computer/controller
Contents of delivery:
- 1x Connection-cable for Computer/Controller (approx. 2,0m)
Please choose your model – APEX/ReefAi or GHL
Use the RD3 pump as a circulation pump!
Watch, how it works! Link to the video.
This cable allows a connection to an aquarium computer (E.g. GHL) via a 0-10V interface.
Please choose your right connection-cable!
Tested so far following these two computers:
GHL ProfiLux 3.1 and from Neptune Systems the Apex Aqua Controller.
Functioning of the electronics:
Once a voltage > 0,5V to the 10V interface is, the interface adapter takes over controlling and the system and lock(disable) the buttons on the controller. Voltage will be < 0,5V normal controller operation and the buttons are again released. So can the interface adapter stay connected without performing a function.
If the Aquarium(tank)-computer voltage under 0,5V the 0-10V interface is shut down and the pump can be operated manually. From 0,5V, the interface will take over control of the scheme. In the area of 0,5V-0,8V the pump is switched off. From ~ 0,8V starts the pump at the lowest level (20W) and run. At an increase of 0,5V will increase the level, also. So 1V = 20W ….. 9V = 230W.
At a higher input voltage remains the Speedy controller to the maximum setting are available and no longer increases. The interface adapter behaves as if the corresponding would push the button.
