ION DIRECTOR

New information now available

bcd6941d-f8b1-4c89-9666-2fa21aeb0676.jpg

Automated Ca, Mg, K, Na and NO3 testing made easy!


Achieve the next level of water testing automation with the ION Director (IOND). Through the use of ion-selective technology, the IOND automatically measures and controls Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium and Nitrate levels in saltwater aquariums.

Get a deeper understanding of your aquarium with the IOND. The ION Director can be used alone or together with a KH Director (KHD). Coupled with the KHD for Alkalinity monitoring and control, the IOND and KHD are the perfect tools for controlling your water parameters like never before.

Each parameter can be measured and automatically controlled. If one or more parameters are too low or too high, the IOND can automatically determine how much of an adjustment of attached dosing pumps is needed to maintain stable parameters.

One Multi-Ion sensor and no reagents


On going research and testing has allowed us to specially develop our own multi-ion sensor. No need for a dedicated sensor per parameter plus a reference electrode, no need for single reagents per parameter. Only one multi-ion sensor and reasonably priced reference fluids are required.

NOTE: Above photo shows ION Director without sensor installed. Details and photos of our multi-ion sensor will be unveiled very soon.

Ultimate accuracy and precision


As with many things in this hobby, stability is key. Through the use of four dosing pump heads, the IOND effectively performs measurements with lab-grade precision and accuracy, each and every time.
Out of the four pump heads, two are used to transport two separate reference fluids for automatic ion-sensor calibration. The use of these heads eliminate the need to manually calibrate the sensor. This ensures that each test is used with a freshly calibrated sensor, every time.

Pairs perfectly with the KH Director


Fully automate and control the aquarium's most important water parameters with the IOND and KHD. 
 

Perfect integration into GHL Connect


Use the extensive logbook and analysis functions in your app and cloud myGHL.

Ahh you beat us to it. :)

Nice development!  I’m guessing they won’t be 2 years late having them available too ;)

Nope.

In fact, we'll have it on-display at Reefapalooza Chicago if you want to see it in person.

I wish I could. An Apex user here with 20 plus modules that checks 5 websites every day trying to get a new trident. The expense of changing my system is just not in the cards right now, but given the opportunity I would jump!

I will be getting one at some point. Maybe not right away, unless the deal is too good to pass up.
