Hi!

I'm thinking of buying the Kh Director and the Ion Director but I have some doubts on how they work. Can you guys help me out please?


So, do the Kh director + Ion director require 2 dosing pumps or 1 is enough for them? And assuming 1 extra pump for balling...

Do the kh and ion director automatically conect to the balling doser to keep the parameters at the desired level? Will they automatically dose in order keep let's say Ca at 450?

How many years of warranty does GHL offer?

You need 3 heads for the KH-director and 4 heads for the ion director in order to have them to work. If you buy 2 pcs of 4 heads doser (SA+slave if you do not have an p3 or p4 computer - 2 slaves if you have a profilux computer) you will only have 1 head free for dosing something. If you want to dose more things - you need extra heads. Th p4 can handle 32 heads and the p3 and Doser2 SA can handle 16 heads (will be 32 in the future what I understand.)

Yes you will have options for a seamless integration between reading and dosing

KH Director and ION Director each require a dosing unit to feed those devices. With that setup you will have 1x KHD, 1x IOND and 2x Dosing units. Both KHD and IOND use 3 pump heads each. That leaves you with 1 extra pump head (total 2) which can be used to dose your KH and Ca supplements.

So basically It's needed 1xIOND 1xKHD and 3x Dosing Units to have a full balling

My other question is, these products alone can automatize de needing for the supplements? Or do you need a Profilux for that?

@Lasse I believe the IOND only requires 3 heads. In the beginning it was 4, but then reduced to 3.

OK - Of some reason I thought it was back to 4.

You would need these:
1x KH Director Slave Set
1x ION Director Slave Set
1x Doser 2.1 Standalone
2x PAB cables

No ProfiLux necessary. As long as you have a Standalone doser to control those devices, the above will be enough for auto-adjusting your dosage amounts.
