The Neptune System Apex Base Unit is basically the brains of your entire Apex System. The Apex Base Unit (ABU) is far different than from what any other controller at this price level is offering. The ABU is basically a small computer, with a 32-bit microprocessor and built-in web server, whose only job is take care of your aquarium.

The web server makes it possible for you to configure and operate your Apex from any network-connected computer or mobile device – no software to install on a PC. It is also Mac compatible!

The Apex runs at many times the speed of other controllers in its class due to its advanced processor technology (most others use 8 or 16 bit microcontrollers) and its specific use (rather than general purpose) architecture. It also has enough memory on board to store many month’s worth of complete tank data in non-volatile RAM. Even with a power outage, your tank history and all configurations are safe.

The Apex Base Unit is internet-ready straight out of the box. Just plug it into your router and you are good to go – no software to install! This means that you can control your tank from any computer (or mobile device) in the house.
