The Apex Energy Bar 6 is designed for Australian 240V AU Plug Sockets Six controllable outlets. All outlets are controlled by high-current mechanical relays rated at 8A. Each Energy Bar can consume a total of 10A and has a built-in 10A circuit breaker. Has four Aqua Bus connectors so you will have three free to connect to more modules or energy bars.
The Apex Energy Bars available for our Apex systems are much more than a glorified power strip. In fact, this component of your aquarium controller equipment is far more important than most people realize. It is obvious that this component is key to controlling things on your aquarium, but what is not so apparent is how it is critical to preventing catastrophe in your aquarium.
The Apex Energy Bars continually send their information on their present current drain to the Apex controller. This is incredibly useful information for a number of reasons. Each of the independently controlled outlets on the Energy Bar are independently switched and easily carry the current load specified on the label. In fact, we intentionally underrate our outlets just to provide that extra level of security.
Each Energy Bar outlet can be configured to be either in an off or on state if the power were to fail and then come back on or if there was a communication failure with the Apex base unit. This means that if, for instance, your heater was on when the power went off, you could have it programmed to be off until control was reestablished with the Apex base unit. Or, as another example, you could program your main return pump to always be in the on position in case of failure.
