WAV™ EXTREME FLOW FOR YOUR AQUARIUM
A POWERHEAD THAT ANSWERS ALL YOUR NEEDS
- – Extreme flow (~4000+ gph)
- – Compact size (less total mass compared to nearly all similar flow pumps)
- – Directional flow (pivots with 40 degree range of motion and can be rotated – great for rear wall use)
- – Safe, 24V DC operation
- – Low power consumption – Less than 35w at the wall
- – Multiple operational modes (random flow modes, mirror, inverse, etc.)
- – Easy to clean (pump automatically shuts off when removed from water)
- – Incredibly Quiet (possibly the quietest driver on the market)
- – Magnetic mount works on up to 1″ glass (in a class by itself)
- – Easy installation with just a single skinny wire for all power and control (1LINK interface makes it a snap!)
DIRECTIONAL FLOW ALLOWS STEALTH MOUNTING OPTIONS
Unfortunately, some of the leading water moving pumps on the market only send flow in a direction perpendicular to the glass. This really limits an aquarist’s options and, in some cases, obstructs the view. Having a powerhead that can be pointed in all directions is nothing new, but the hardware to make that happen usually takes up too much space and is unsightly. The WAV answers both of these problems with a new take on an articulating mount.
Through research we found that most customers usually never need to point their pump at extreme angles – usually 20 degrees one direction or another is enough. This is the approach we took with the WAV. With its innovative, low-profile magnetic mount, you get up to a 40 degree range of motion on the pivot and then the entire pump rotates 360 degrees. This provides so many more options than flow that comes straight out from the side or back of the aquarium. Imagine mounting the WAV on the back side glass or even the back wall, set an angle, and kicking the flow off the side or front glass. You get the flow where you need it and you stop blocking the beautiful side views of your aquarium!
A MULTITUDE OF MODES
The WAV pumps can be set up to create a nearly infinite combination of flow types, intensity, and interaction between pumps. And the best part – no programming is necessary! It is as easy as moving dots on a graph and selecting from a menu of flow options”
1LINK™ – EASY, ONE-CLICK INSTALLATION
The WAV is the first of a line of aquarium products from Neptune Systems that will use a completely new interface. While many in the aquarium world continue to embrace wireless technologies for interconnectivity, we have decided to go the other direction – a wire.
Wireless connectivity from your smartphone or tablet to your Apex (or other controller) is completely logical – and we embrace that. However, wireless used for the interconnecting of devices within the confines of common aquariums (that are mostly less than 6′ long) is not only unnecessary, but it reduces reliability. Our philosophy is that when distances are measured in a few feet, wireless is a solution looking for a problem. And ironically, wireless really does not save wires. You still need to use a wire to get power to the devices anyway. And let’s not forget configuration – wireless devices require syncing, endless button presses and arcane steps to get them to connect up – hopefully with you and not your neighbor. Finally for all this “benefit”, you as the consumer get the added cost of this wireless technology that must be baked into the price of every device you buy.
So after much study of the problem, our answer is 1LINK. It is called 1LINK because there is one power supply, one module (for up to three 1LINK devices), and a one-click-connection of a wire that carries not only the power for the device, but two-way communication from it to your Apex. Setup is simply click and go.
