What cable is needed to connect Reef Octopus Varios pumps to Apex?
Icecap Y cable
^^^^^^^^^^ That cable has been discontinued for some reason and cannot be purchased anywhere - a similar cable is however purchasable from http://www.coralvue.com/alternate-gyre-mode-modified-cable-for-icecap-gyre-interface-module but I would ask on the apex forums before trying it!
Is the float switch on the Varios compatible with the Apex as well?
I was wondering the same?
The float switch has a specific cable plug to allow it to connect to the varios controller, and will not connect to the Apex directly.
Taken from the BRS website: "ICECAP cable: Compatible with Gyre Interface Modules, VarioS Controllers, and more. The 6.5 foot Y Module cable lets you connect two VarioS pump controllers or Gyre Interface Modules directly to a 0-10v controller like the Neptune Apex Controller."
In addition to the y cable, which we are temporarily out of stock on, I was advised by CV that the Alternate Gyre cable should also work.
