Profilux connectivity to the new Octo Pulse 4 Wave Pump

I was just reading/watching reviews on this new "Propeller Pump" and it looks very promising. My question here is how easy (dummy it down please) would it be to control one of these using a GHL P3 controller?

The stats state:
"0-10 V External Controller Connection"

What would a new user need in order to connect to this via a Profilux controller? I'll be the first to admit I'm "0-10 V External Controller Connection" ignorant.

Here's a link to the unit I'm questioning:

Thanks in advance gang for your help & support.

No and I sent it twice
Don't think they came out with a box like the GHL Vortech Controller which controls MP10/40s vortech pumps.

There's a video by Coralvue about the Pulse 4 and APEX, basically buy a 0-10V cable, 1 end goes into Octo controller, other end which is ethernet-like goes into APEX...done.

I'm guessing here, unless they come out with a GHL Octo Controller, you will have to stick with original controller OR you could try buying the same cable and plugging it directly into your Profulix....probably not a good idea until you get confirmations from GHL

The Ecotech is a way better pump than the Octo Pulse. It has be proven for years now with great success.

Thanks for the answer, and yes I agree with you about the Ecotech and it comes with all spar parts and easy to find them.
