System Description

  The good-value alternative - precise highly efficient

        A five-year guarantee - and your peace of mind is ensured

This compact aquaristic computer is a comfortable measuring, regulation and control system. Throughout the course of its development, our engineers have given highest priority to ease of operation.
Up to two water values (e.g. pH and temperature) are permanently monitored by the iks aquastar midi and can be regulated via the switch sockets. A switch socket is already included in the basic version which can have any function allocated to it. The practical timing and interval functions are equivalent to the comprehensive and well-designed functions of the iks aquastar.

A two-line text display and a large LED display panel ensure a high level of operating comfort and excellent legibility of the readings even in the dark and from further away.
With an additional external display, you can read your latest measurement data even in another room.
The system is available in the models iks aquastar midi pH (pH/temperature) and iks aquastar midi redox (redox/temperature).


Remarkable functions:

  logical and easy operation.
  You can connect up to two socket panels, with 4 sockets each, to the iks aquastar midi. That means 1      plus 8 controlled sockets. These are also available in a variable-output version for extremely realistic      simulations.
  With the iks aquastar midi you can programme up to 32 timer functions (with weekday function). The      shortest switch interval is only 1 second long. This enables you, for example, to add minimal amounts of      trace elements evenly and automatically with the help of a dosing pump (such as the iks Vario). (The      dosing pump iks Vario MP 045 feeds an amount of only 0,075 ml per second at its lowest setting.
  The interval functions can be individually adjusted to suit your own requirements. The active and passive      phases of the interval duration can be set separately from each other, whereby a random factor (time)      can be given for each one.
  The extensive day/night simulation makes child's play of your aquarium's lighting and optimises it too.      You can use it to set a wide variety of lighting on- and off times. If the lighting you use can be dimmed,      you can simulate sunrise and sunset. It's even possible to recreate the sunrise and sunset of a particular      region of the world (by entering the latitude and longitude.This function even makes the period of the       reduction in nocturnal values possible (pH-value, temperature, current etc.).
  The integrated lunar-phase simulation gives you everything you want. You can choose between two      alternatives. A practice-related one for the "aquarium enthusiast" and the and one for the authentic      simulation of moonlight (for coral cultivation), taking into account the duration as well as the intensity of      the light. It too allows you to simulate the lunar phase of a particular region of the world, the tropics for      example (again, by entering latitude and longitude!
  There is also a very wide spectrum of possibilities for current simulation such as pulsating waves or        high/low tide. No matter how large your aquarium is and regardless of the shape it may have, this      simulation function, thought out right down to the last detail, makes it possible for you to create the      optimum current for any tank. You can control up to eight pumps!
  In the "professional" programming level, up to eight different control processes can be carried out using      one measurement and control module. An example: The tank-floor heating system on Socket 1 is      activated at 25° C. If the temperature continues to fall to 24.5° C, a heating element on Socket 2 will cut      in. If the temperature in your tank becomes too high, a fan/cooler on Socket 3 can be activated at, say,      27°C. For all these functions you can add different values for day/night and summer/winter, too.
  All control processes can have upper and lower alarm limits allocated to them.
  Acoustic, visual and external alarm (e.g. for sirens or warning lights).
  Automatic calibration with sensor test (for pH, redox)
  Using the iks aquastar midi any of the measured values can be stored and transferred to a PC at any      intervals you decide upon. Thus, 4000 chains of measurements (one chain comprises date, time and the      values of all the connected sensors) can be stored in the memory. The lead required to do this is      available from iks. The software necessary for transferring the data to your PC (iks-datastar) is can be      downloaded free-of-charge in the section "Software" on this website. With the help of your PC you can      recognise and identify long-term trends and interdependencies between the most diverse factors in your      aquarium. A PC programme for comfortable evaluation of data (graphs, database, tables, online display      etc.) is currently being developed.
  Set for the future with the update function: As the whole system is constantly undergoing further      development you have the opportunity of installing the latest programmes (functions) from the Internet
      with a PC. That means : You are always up-to-date!
  Absolutely excellent value for money!

What other systems offers you so much (apart from the iks aquastar)?
