This is a custom designed breakout box designed to work with the Neptune Apex aquarium controllers. It contains three illuminated momentary switches, a toggle kill switch, and two external switch inputs (for use with float switches). Included is the breakout box, Y-power cable, mounting hardware, mounting template and instructions with example programming. I/0 Cable length is ~2.5 ft by default but can be configured up to 5.5 ft by request for a slight upcharge.

Price is $120 plus $7.50 shipping in the USA.

This is my personal unit attached to a PM2 (not included). The left toggle switch lights up only when in the ON position. The other three buttons are always on.

If I needed such a Box I would get one to compiment my Sump Room High Tech look.

Very nice design, and I love your choice of Colors, and illuminated buttons.

Curious. The Top button is On/Off flow, Next is Power, what is 3rd? Feed?

All of the round push buttons are non latching, they just trigger an event. You can program them to turn something on for a set duration. You can program them for anything you want. I have mine set to turn on feed mode, start my auto-top-odd and to turn on a light on my sump.

I get it, those symbols are just generic and your breakout box is just a Switch to the Apex IO breakout.
I was just curious what the 3rd symbol meant to you.
Again, the way they light orange up is nice. I do a lot of DIY and am always looking for cool switches.
Been using the kind from from Video Games (Old Kind), and love pushing those to bring back memories of playing Pacman, Donkey Kong, etc. (But they are big)
