APC/DCI Combo Compatible with Jebao DCT-12000?

Postby EuroDriver » Mon Sep 11, 2017 4:43 pm

Actually I haven't decided if I'm going to use the Jebao DCT-12000 or the newer DCS-12000 as a return pump. They are practically the same pump but I'd like to know if the APC/DCI module combination would be able to control either one. Thanks.

I depends if the motor driver is in the pump it will work. Most new Jebao pumps have the motor driver in the pump controller. I do not know of any controller that these pumps will work with. It would require replacing the pump controller with a different pump controller that has a external control input.
thanks,
Danny

Thanks Danny, I appreciate the quick response. Is there a similar pump that you can recommend that can be controlled with the APC/DCI package?

The VarioS by Reef Octopus is controllable by a third party controller via 0-10v input. There are others that use the same 0-10v control. I believe the APC output is 0-10v without the DCI. The DCI is a interface for the Jebao pumps. I know the Archon has 2 of the 0-10v outputs that have the same connectors as the APC and will connect to the Tunze pumps like the APC using the same cables. You might want to get with Eric at support to make sure before you buy a pump.
thanks,
Danny
