  1. A HUGE thank you goes out to all who participated in this year's group buy! Enjoy your new goodies and as always, feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. OH and don't forget to share your new purchases on social media! Tag @ghl_aquariumproducts on IG
  2. If you were able to get through the update and the original firmware version still showed, then that means the newest version of GHL Control Center was not downloaded or used for the update. If you want the newest FW, always download the newest version of GCC first. In this case, GCC v1132.
  3. Hi there, What is so difficult about it? The exact steps are shown in the video or the resource guide, an update is completed in less than 5 minutes. Unless you have a P4 with firmware that is well over one year old, there is no need to do the update to access it over GHL Connect. If you contact us through the proper support channels and provide us with specifics, we can help you through it.
  4. Nope. The IOND standalone set will get you started with auto testing. If you wanted to add dosing, you can add a slave doser to the setup. That will allow you to setup normal dosing schedules and also allow the IOND to make adjustments to those schedules if it finds that any parameter is outside of the desired value.
  5. Now that we're probably spending more time at home and with the tank, we figured it would be a good time to do something special for Buckeye Reef members. In times like these, sitting back and watching our reef tanks or even working on them can be a perfect way to keep our minds off today's uncertainties.

  6. Our GHL Vortech controller will control only vortech pumps (MP 10,40,60) as we do not have the necessary info from ETM to enable support for their other products.
  7. Hi there, You said the green light was ON originally. In that case, there was no need to do anything further. No WiFi module updates were necessary. Not being able to connect using GCC is likely due to your windows firewall preventing GCC from accessing your controller through the network. If you try to connect over the app using the IP address YOU or your network assigned, you will be able to connect. If you continue to have trouble with this, please use one of our official support channels: Support forum Ticket system
  8. ION DIRECTOR Pre-order special offer ending soon! Have you pre-ordered the ION Director yet? If not, what are you waiting for? The ION DIRECTOR revolutionizes the way you test and automate essential reef parameters. With the IOND, you can conveniently test and control: Calcium Magnesium Potassium Nitrate Sodium Parameters too high or too low? Let the IOND adjust dosages for you! With each and every test, the IOND evaluates your current parameters and determines if any adjustment is necessary. Whether the test results show one or more parameters being too high or too low, the IOND will automatically adjust your existing dose schedule so it can steadily bring your levels within your desired range. Want to test 1x, 2x, or more times per day? IOND gives you the flexibility to choose how often you want your parameters tested. Using the intuitive connectivity platforms, you can chose to test anywhere between 0 - 24 times per day! You can even choose at what time the first test of the day will happen. IOND automatically tracks and charts your test results With the myGHL cloud service and GHL Connect app, you can freely check-in on your tank from where ever you are. Each test performed by the IOND is automatically logged and tracked from the cloud. Viewing your past test results is as easy as opening the GHL Connect app and connecting to your master device. Our easy-to-navigate charting system allows you to gain a better understanding of how your parameters change over the course of the day, weeks, and even months. One Multi-ion sensor to test all parameters On going research and testing has allowed us to develop a new multi-ion sensor like nothing else on the market. Instead of relying on multiple sensor tips per parameters, our design features a single tip for all parameters. No need to replace separate parts to the sensor, just a single sensor is all it takes. This makes sensor replacement quick and easy. No need to calibrate the Multi-ion sensor...the IOND does it automatically! The IOND's auto-calibration feature allows it to calibrate the multi-ion sensor before the start of each test. With the use of cost-effective reference fluids, a single calibration prepares the multi-ion sensor for all supported parameters. Ultimate accuracy and precision As with many things in this hobby, stability is key. Through the use of 4 dosing pump heads, the IOND effectively performs measurements with lab-grade precision and accuracy. Out of the 4 pump heads used by the IOND, 2 heads are used for feeding two separate reference fluids for automatic ion-sensor calibration. The use of these heads eliminate the need to manually calibrate the sensor and ensure that each test is performed with a freshly calibrated sensor, every time. No controller required! As with all our products, we are firm believers in giving our users the freedom to choose how they want to access their devices. With the IOND, it is no different! Our product does not require you to have a ProfiLux controller to run it. With a Standalone GHL Doser, you will have everything you need to control the IOND. Pairs perfectly with the KH Director Complete the holy grail of testing and control by adding the KH Director into the mix. Having the IOND and KHD together allows you to fully automate the testing and control of your aquarium's key parameters. While the KHD measures and controls your alkalinity, the IOND will test and control other important parameters which help you get one step closer to a healthy reef tank.

Return it completed and we will provide the next steps. Frequently Asked Questions What's the difference between the ION Director package options? How do I know which one I need? ION Director, single device: This option is for those who already have 4 dosing pump heads (2.1) which are not being used. Since the IOND requires 4 pump heads to run it, you will need to use these pump heads to run it. If you are new to GHL or do not have a dosing pump to run this device, this option is not recommended. ION Director, Standalone Set: This option is for those who are NEW to the GHL brand and do not currently own a master device like a Standalone Doser or ProfiLux 3 or ProfiLux 4 controller. This package includes a everything you need to get started with testing. If you wish to also dose the tested parameters, you will need an additional dosing unit (SLAVE). ION Director, Slave Set: This option is for those who ALREADY OWN a master device like a Standalone Doser or ProfiLux 3 or ProfiLux 4 controller. This package connects to your master device with the use of a PAB-cable (not included in set). If you wish to also dose the tested parameters, you will need an additional dosing unit (SLAVE). What is the expected lifespan of the multi-ion sensor? Lifespan is 6 - 18 months depending on environmental conditions such as water quality and how often tests are performed. What is the accuracy of the IOND? Target accuracy: 10ppm for Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium Less than 1ppm for Nitrate 100ppm or better for Sodium How many ml of reference solution is used per test? Depending on your actual parameters at time of testing, the amount of each reference fluid used can vary between 5 - 10ml. Reference A and B fluids are used in equal portions. Are there reference fluids included with the IOND? Yes, all IOND packages include 1x 500ml bottle of Reference A and 1x 500ml bottle of Reference B. Reference solutions will be available in 500ml and 1000ml sizes. When does shipping begin? IOND begins shipping from Germany on March 31, 2020
