HYDROS WaveEngine Direct Drive Compatible

The HYDROS WaveEngine is a multi-brand, multi-pump controller. It allows you to control, monitor, and power pumps from different brands together using a single app. Finally, pumps from different brands can work together under a unified platform!

In addition to wireless and 0-10V control, the WaveEngine has the ability to control and power up to 4 pumps. Using the Direct Drive ports on the front of the WaveEngine, you can plug in pumps from different brands like IceCap, Reef Octopus, and Maxspect so you can power 4 pumps off a single power supply. By utilizing the Direct Drive ports, you no longer need the external controllers that are included with these pumps. If you're using 4 pumps, imagine all the clutter you can clear out of your stand by not having to use 4 power bricks and 4 controllers and instead having one of each.

Due to the growing popularity of the WaveEngine, brands like IceCap are offering "pump only" versions of their products that do not include the external controller and power supply. Now, for a much lower price (you'll save $100!), you can purchase just the pump itself and the mounting base so you can directly connect the pump to the WaveEngine. All you will need is the appropriate adapter, in this case, the HYDROS IceCap Gyre WaveEngine Pump Adapter, and you'll be able to do things with flow that you never thought possible!

IceCap Gyre Dual Pump WiFi Controller Compatible

The IceCap Gyre Dual Pump WiFi Controller is all-new for 2020! It is powered by the CoralVue HYDROS platform and is compatible with all generations of IceCap Gyre Pumps. That’s right! Not only is the Gyre Dual Pump WiFi Controller capable of powering and controlling the two current generation of IceCap Gyre Pumps, the 2K and 4K, it is also backward compatible with the previous generation 1K and 3K pumps.

The Gyre 4K Uses Revolutionary Crossflow Technology

Wavemakers excel in making waves, while waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement, especially near the bottom of the aquarium.

On the other hand, gyre generators excel in moving the sheer flow of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The flow of water is so strong that it would bounce back from the opposite side to achieve full circulation within an aquarium, i.e., generating "gyre flows."

Why have Gyre pumps taken the aquarium world by storm? There are three main reasons: 

  1. They leave virtually no dead spots in your aquarium.
  2. The flow is evenly distributed throughout your entire aquarium.
  3. Water bounces back off the other side of your tank, creating a full circulation to complete the Gyre pattern.

These three key points run in stark contrast to the performance of the status quo propeller-type pumps that once ruled our hobby. Sure, they can move water. But they don’t do it as efficiently and intelligently as the Gyre! For example:

Disadvantages of Standard Propeller Nozzle Pumps

  1. A)Relatively weak water movement with dead spots left in their wake.
  2. B)There is a powerful flow in the center but not elsewhere, which makes coral placement difficult.
  3. C)The water movement is weak at the other end of the aquarium and is not designed for recirculation.

Why is a Gyre Generator Superior to a Wavemaker?

Wavemakers excel in making waves. While waves are spectacular to watch in motion, they are moving the majority of the water vertically up and down, with relatively low horizontal movement—especially near the bottom of the aquarium.

On the other hand, the Gyre excels in generating massive movements of water from one side of the aquarium to the other. The sheer volume of water is so substantial that it bounces off the opposite side of the aquarium to achieve full circulation within the tank. Or, as we call it, generating a “gyre flow.”

HYDROS Pump Controller - Simplify the way we manage flow in our aquariums

The WaveEngine LE "Light Edition" allows you to easily add different brand pumps to your aquarium to obtain the ultimate flow. Specify the minimum and maximum speed each pump can run while working together in multiple flow presets such as sync, anti-sync, triangle wave, square wave, sine wave, and many other preset wave patterns. Connect up to two (2) pumps directly to the controller, removing multiple power bricks' clutter.**

App-Based Dual Pump Controller

A single app controls a variety of different pumps from your mobile device. Access all the features you desire without needing multiple apps, individual controllers, and bulky power supplies that require a “bird’s nest” of cables and wires.

Until now,  limited capabilities have restricted the simple controllers that manage popular pumps like the Maxspect Gyre, Reef Octopus Octo Pulse flow pumps.

In addition to this convenient and advanced control, you can reduce clutter by eliminating the DC power brick used by modern controllable pumps!

Direct Pump Driver

  • The HYDROS WaveEngine LE connects directly to the pump head, removing the clutter of the power brick and the control head for these pumps. 
  • Maxspect Gyre XF-130 / 230, XF-150 / 250, XF-330 / 350, XF-280*
  • IceCap Gyre 1K, 3K, 2K, 4K
  • Reef Octopus RODC-2500, 3500 and 5500, VarioS-2 and 4, Octo Pulse 2 and 4

Here Is What WELE Can Do 

One App to Rule Them All!

The HYDROS App from CoralVue will completely replace the need for individual manual controllers and apps. 

We can easily tap into the native control platform to access all the preset flow patterns and modes or create our own through modern technology! Connect wirelessly to the HYDROS WaveEngine and then communicate with your flow pumps.

Features:

  • Easily add pumps and specify the location of the pump in the aquarium as well as specify min & max speed a pump can run at
  • Use different brand pumps to work together in different flow preset such as sync, anti-sync, triangle wave, square wave, sine wave, and many other preset wave patterns.  
  • Create multiple groups
  • Create and access operational modes such as Feed, Water Change, or Night mode
  • Monitor power consumption (volts, amps & watts) based on individual pumps & total consumption of all attached pumps
  • Monitor pump’s RPM to ensure maximum performance
  • Full cloud connectivity so you can control your pumps from anywhere in the world
  • Real-time notifications of system status & pump performance
  • Define custom flow patterns of any duration up to 24 hours with 1/1000 second accuracy
  • Power up to 2 pumps with the Direct Drive ports using a single 100/240V 4 amp input power supply (included). The output is 24V/6 amps.

*Maxspect Gyre 280 pumps can only run at 75% max intensity. **An appropriate pump adapter 

**PLEASE NOTE: An appropriate pump adapter or 0-10V cable (sold separately) is required to connect pumps directly to the HYDROS WaveEngine LE.
