The IceCap Gyre Controller box is being teased out online and will allow you to control your Maxspect Gyre with most of the well-known controllers on the market today. If you own a MaxSPect Gyre XF150 or XF130 and were waiting to control this with your Apex or other aquarium controller, you are in luck – but you’ll have to wait a few more weeks.
IceCap’s Gyre Controller allows you to create different speeds, pulses, and tapping into ramping up and ramping down profiles, which can then be scheduled via output configuration. For those living in storm-prone areas, the Gyre Controller will also allow you to connect a backup battery that will automatically detect when power is out and will reduce the speed of the Gyre to extend its life.
We hear the controller box will be available this summer and pricing in TBD.
