Aquatronica had their new 7” touch controller displayed at Interzoo 2012 and we got a quick peak at the Italian aquarium controller. The Touch Controller will sport a 7” touch display, and the ability to connect to the internet via Ethernet or WIFI. Data storage will use SD cards, allowing you to upgrade capacity as needed. Because this controller will be connected to the internet, you’ll be able to control it via your favorite browser or with your iPad or iPhone. All of Aquatronica’s existing systems including power bars, modules, and electrodes will be compatible. Our initial thoughts on the new device are good, with the interface having a very quick and snappy user design. However, not all of the modules of the unit were working when we viewed them, with Aquatronica promising these last few issues were still being programmed. We have a few additional feature points below the break and don’t forget there is another controller that Aquatronica will be releasing which has all the same features as the touch controller minus the 7″ display screen.
