here my setup
Here's my invoice
Nice and neat !
GHL Doser 2 still sitting on top?
Any other new dosers with potential? I need to buy one real soon!
Nothing as well made and supported or with amount of features as a Doser 2.1 which has reversible motors ( the doser 2 does this too.) and pump motors that can run for hours.
There are some super sweet set ups on this thread. GHL products are in a class of there own. Can't wait to get my two Mitras installed. I'm sure my corals will thank me too. Just wondering if I can add to my GHL collection with some sweet Black Friday deals. Just checked the website and unfortunately, I've seen nothing. Please prove me wrong.
Bump for more!
After I get The Profilux 4 and install it I will post pics. I might even put doors on my stand too. lol
Doser 2 setup.
So there's the GHL 2 and a 2.1 now.???
You are correct!
Ok...wow...I missed that.
What's the difference between the Stand Alone and Slave?
So is the slave unit for the profilux and stand alone just able to function by itself?
What's the max number of heads they come with?
Standalone = Do not need a controller, or another device to program dosing schedule. It's all built in. +LAN & WiFi
Slave = Need either a ProfiLux controller, or a Standalone Doser 2/2.1 to attach to. Has no capabilities of it's own.
Max of 16 pumps/heads. You may purchase the chassis (standalone or slave) with 2/3/4 heads, and can always expand to the max of 4 heads per chassis, for a total of 4 chassis with 4 heads each, for grand total of 16 heads.
Standalone also has 2 level sensor inputs, a temp input, as well as output to drive up to 4x magnetic stirrers on each Doser 2/2.1 chassis
One more - a Standalone can always be turned into a slave to either a ProfiLux controller, or another Standalone Doser 2/2.1, however a Slave can only be a slave, can never run on it's own.
Wow! That's impressive!
So how will I add more heads? Looks like there's only room for 4 heads on each pump>?
So the chassis is the unit itself and can have a total of 4 heads.
So If I bought an additional chassis...would it be the same cost as a regular unit since I wouldn't need all the features and brain? All I'll need is the additional pump heads.
Close. Let's say you do not have a ProfiLux controller, and are starting off with a brand new doser.
You can purchase a Doser (model) 2 or 2.1 in either 2, 3 or 4 head(pump) configurations.
Say you purchase the Doser 2.1, STANDALONE, 2 pump. You can then, down the road when you have a need for more, purchase the 2 to 4 pump upgrade kit. This will get you to 4 pumps on the first doser(chassis). Should you then find yourself needing a total of 7 pumps, you would simply purchase another Doser 2 or 2.1 chassis, but a SLAVE model, with 3 pumps. The Slave models come at a reduced cost.
Sorry for the late reply, I had to go do my rounds. I work nights in a hospital.
Ok I see now. That makes sense. Well...I own an apex and I think i'll get the Doser 2.1 standalone (4 pump). Then later i'll buy another chassis (slave model) with 4 additional pumps after I get used to playing with the first one. I wanna dose ALK, CAL, & MAG of course and a lot of trace elements.
Thanks for all your help!
Look at us late night hospital workers. Posting all night. Holla!
lol...go do our rounds and then back to the computer to look at reef products. haha...
