    @JonasRoman, will the BNC - BNC cable be supplied with the Alkatronic? If yo have already answered that I apologize for asking again. I just want to be sure in case I need to order one from somewhere else before my unit gets here. Thank you.

    @JonasRoman

    Would it be possible to somehow do this with the bnc connection on the slx or slv2 modules of a digital aquatics reefkeeper? My guess is no since you can't go in and write code like an apex, but maybe it would atleast send the dkH to the reefkeeper as what the reefkeeper thinks is a pH value but the number would still be the same? Then you could set "ph" alarms which would then turn on/off certain equipment/send alerts etc.

    Way out of my league here but I'm one of those weirdos without an apex :)

    Not necessary for me since the Alkatronic can already shut things off but still would be nice.

    Exactly in that way the bnc output from Alkatronic works! Correct.
    As long as yoy have a ph port you can read the dKH values in the ph meter. Ph meter of course thinks it is pH value it reads but that does not matter. You can handle the figure in programs in the ph/aquariumcomputer in that way you wants.

    Regards

    Hi

    The dedicated special support thread for Alkatronic under Focustronic, will soon be running again(I have reported the issue), and until then please put your support questions here, so I can reach you, and/or also adress them at our FB site.

    So I will look here until its running.

    I think here was one questions I could not answer in that thread because the thread was looked, but just anyway got the question:

    So to explain: In apex you will always get the latest measured value from Alkatronic if you connect apex and Alkatronic with a BNC cable, and then it is up to you how you handle this dKH value in the apex outlet-programs.

    In our app you got all functions of course, like graph, alerts, setting, table/list, export data, etc etc.. And also we will this weekend start up the cloud!!!! and as you may know, we start to ship the first units next week!
    Android will also be available, we are working on that, and iOS 100% ready and is for downloading at app-store.

    The response is huge, and we got already very nice response

    Here from one of our customer:


    /“I am in love with my Alkatronic”

    “Hats off to you, the design and programming is brilliant”

    “I believe anyone using the Alkatronic for the first time, will see just how much time and effort has gone into the construction and programming, the same can not be said for many products released, most are placed on the market with a view to trouble shoot from users comments, I can see this is not the case with you guys.”/

    The cloud is settled!!! You can reach all data, the machine and graph from every corner of the world,! and also export all data from the memory to for instance an excel file.
    Choose between 7 or 30 days in graph, and the dots have popups.

    Maybe some picture from factory and assembling stations tomorrow, we are working hard to get the units out as soon as possible.

    We today just to be 100.00 % safe, did again final test of some complete brand new units, and the standard deviation of the measurements are +- 0.03dKH!! Everything is clear and green, after weekend we start to ship.

    This will be our signum all the way, when we for instance release software updates, everything is very carefully tested before reach the public.

    Quality, user-friendly, transparency, and the aquarists needs in focus, are always the most important to us.

    Feels good
