The Profilux Touch, a unit that should help control your aquarium has finally gotten a launch date. We first spied the Touch unit from Profilux back at Macna last year and it has over gone a few changes from the original prototype we saw. The Profilux touch will sport a 4.3″ color touch screen and be able to control temperature, pH-value, redox (ORP), conductivity, oxygen and light intensity along with moon phases. The pump, outlet control along with alarms, feeding, pause, and maintenance modes are all a given. This biggest thing that is missing here is the price, with an official MSRP missing from the spec sheet. With the Profilux Touch going to compete with the soon to be released Cerebra , these are interesting times if you are in the market for an aquarium controller. Expect to be able to pick up the Profilux Touch in May 2011. Pre-orders have already started to begin via official GHL channels. Hit past the break for more official blurb.
Update: We are told that the preorder launch price is $349
The external display and operating unit ProfiLux Touch is connected over the ProfiLux Aquatic Bus (PAB is present in ProfiLux 3, for instance) and is the perfect add-on for your aquarium computer system!
The device shows you at a glance all important readings and states of your aquarium or terrarium on a 4.3” color touchscreen – e.g.:
* Temperature, pH-value, redox (ORP), conductivity, oxygen and activity of the control loops
* Light intensity and moon phase
* States of pumps and power outlets
* Alarm, feeding pause and maintenance
* Reminder texts and time with date
* ProfiLux Touch offers several background images – you can choose the background according to your personal taste.
* The integrated speaker allows an acoustical warning in the event of an alarm.
* The power suppy and the PAB connection are managed through a thin cable which leads to the back of the device, therefore a discreet wiring is possible. The connection of the PAB-lines and of the power supply is managed through the included PAB-Businterface at another, hidden location.
* Wall mounting set (Optional there are other mounting sets available, please see below)
* Universal power supply
* Connection cable from ProfiLux Touch to PAB-Businterface (2 m)
PAB-cables are not part of the shipment, please order them separately.
