Neptune EB8 Energy Bar 8
This item must be used with a Neptune Apex controller, it cannot be used stand alone.
- Designed for a USA-style 120V power grid.
- Eight controllable outlets. Six of these outlets are controlled by super-silent solid-state triacs and are rated at 5A. Two of the outlets are controlled by high-current mechanical relays and are rated at 10A.
- Each Energy Bar can consume a total of 15A and has a built-in 15A circuit breaker.
- Six AquaBus connectors so you will have five free to connect to more modules or Energy Bars
EXTRA AQUABUS CONNECTIONS
Each Energy Bar has additional connectors so that you can easily expand to other modules. This is very helpful for those that want to use one Apex to control multiple aquariums. The Energy Bar becomes an AquaBus “hub” at any location you choose – allowing you to connect more modules in that area. This is called a “star topology” and is unique to the Apex. Many other controllers require you to daisy chain together every module or they require you to buy a separate “hub” to connect everything together.
Each of the independently controlled outlets on the Energy Bar are independently switched and easily carry the current load specified on the label. In fact, Neptune intentionally underrate their outlets just to provide that extra level of security.
