    Unleashing the Gyre's True Potential!!!
    For the last few weeks, CoralVue have been testing the IceCap Gyre Controller Box. This controller will allow you to control your Gyre (either XF150 or XF130) via most of the well known controllers (YES!!! including the Neptune Apex). The control box allows you to create different speed, pulsing, ramping up and ramping down profiles which can then be scheduled via output configuration.

    Another nice feature of the IceCap Gyre Controller is that it will allow you to connect the gyre to a backup battery. The controller will automatically detect when power is out and will reduce the speed of the Gyre to extend it's life.
    Be on the lookout for this game-changing accessory from CoralVue late spring/early summer 2015!
    No price has been set at this time.

    So it's not a standalone controller? Must work with another controller? :(

    Need this soon!!!! Hooking up a 130 and 150 in my new 130g when it gets here in a couple weeks. It will be great to be able to control these thru my apex. Also currently running another 130 in my 30L. So if you need testers I have two 130's and the 150 and two apex systems. I'm actually an R&D guy for the Gov. :bigsmile:

    With VDM there is an easy hack one you can do online. It's pretty much the same thing as the one for jaebo wp pumps.

    Interesting - same cable? I will probably still buy the new controller but I still have the cable from my Jebaos in the meantime.

    Is this a stand alone controller or must you already have a controller unit?

    Will it be able to operate 2 pumps simultaneously? For example, can it turn one pump on for say 2 minutes, then turn the other one on for 2 minutes and continue alternating between the two?

    with the controller can you hook up multiple gyres or do you need a controller for each gyre?

    This is great news though cant wait! my 265 needs this lol :target:

    Will the gyre be able to be used with a battery backup without the controller box. I don't use a controller

    I'm assuming you can do two just like the jaebo. I need to buy my second gyre. Or just hook up my 3 Jaebos with the gyre. Need more random flowing.
