Why does TSA recommend this?

Salinity, temperature, pH, and ORP sensors, as well as WiFi connection, were all incorporated in a single package created by Neptune. One of the most sophisticated aquarium controllers available right now is the Apex Controller. A fully automated reef tank would benefit greatly from the Apex Controller System’s extensive range of controllability and user-friendly cloud interface. The dashboard and Fusion, a cloud-based program, are the two ways the Apex Controller may be controlled. The dashboard, in contrast to many other cloud-based controllers, enables you to always have access to your Apex in any situation, even a power outage or when the internet is unavailable. The Energy Bar 832 also provides you with information on the amount of electricity that each particular outlet is using, allowing you to set alerts, send emails, or even receive IOS notifications to alert you before something goes wrong.



The changes go beyond color. In response to your feedback, Neptune has expanded the Apex Controller’s already comprehensive range of basic functions.

WiFi, salinity, temperature, pH, and monitoring are built in. Create reminders, keep testing and dosage records, and do much more.

You can now connect to the internet even more easily thanks to included WiFi. Everything is simpler with the Fusion Cloud interface, including designing outlets and calibrating probes. Fusion enables you to keep an eye on and manage your Apex from any location in the world.

The Energy Bars have undergone a complete redesign with stronger outlets, individual LEDs that display each outlet’s status and power consumption, and 1Link Accessories like the DOS and WAV pump that can now connect directly to the Energy Bar 832, freeing up space and removing unsightly cords to keep your tank’s equipment looking perfect.

Apex Control System

Salinity, pH, ORP, and temperature monitoring are now available straight out of the box with the new Apex Head Unit. The fully redesigned design also has a sleek, rotating mounting mechanism that enables you to easily access probe wires and aquabus connections while securely installing the Apex system’s brains.

Built in reliable WiFi

Connecting your Apex system has never been simpler thanks to built-in WiFi. Connecting and controlling may be done quickly using the entirely free Fusion cloud-based software. Now, you may update the firmware on your local network using WiFi.

Energy Bar 832

Finally available is the most complete controlling and monitoring solution for aquariums. You may utilize any of the eight separate, 7 amp relayed outlets on the Energy Bar 832 for any device. Each individual outlet has the ability to track and detect power use in amps or watts, allowing you to set alerts and send emails when pumps have failed or clogged, lights are not turning on, or heaters are leaking current. This allows you to be alerted to a problem before it arises. Knowing how much each pump, heater, and light costs per kilowatt hour of power allows you to make better judgments about the overall cost of your equipment.

The built-in 100W DC power supply allows you to control up to 3 1Link accessories like the WAV circulation pumps and DOS fluid metering system without the need for any additional power supplies or consuming additional outlets. Each Energy Bar 832 also has two 24VDC accessory ports that can power small pumps, solenoids, fans, and more. The EB832 also features three AquaHub connectors, allowing you to expand to any current or planned module and fully extending the capabilities of your Apex System.

Neptune didn’t stop there; the Energy Bar now has a brand-new mounting method that positions the power strip correctly while maintaining cord organization. While the outlets are positioned opposite of one another and have a somewhat larger spacing, enabling room for those large transformers, you can plug in nearly anything and everywhere.


New Lab Grade, Double Junction Probes with Built-in Salinity Monitoring

Your results will remain more stable without the need for frequent calibration thanks to double connection pH and ORP probes. Calibration of your probes via your dashboard is now simpler than ever thanks to the Apex System. No more guesswork or reading RAW data; the dashboard will automatically detect when your readings have stabilized and let you know when to go on to the next phase.

Apex Fusion

Fusion is a cloud-based platform that enables global access to your Apex. allowing you to monitor and manage every part of your aquarium using your phone, tablet, or laptop. This includes the ability to tweak outlets, create reminders, and track testing parameters.


A new iOS app from Apex Fusion has been made available and now seamlessly interacts with your Apex Controller System. With the app, you can now receive notifications from your Apex Controller on your Apple desktop, Ipad, or phone. Emails and SMS messages are no longer necessary.
