    The distinction was made because more than one of the systems that test DKh only require you to have separate dosing pumps just to get them to operate and take measurements at all.

    Ok, my intention is to set up automated adjustments, through the Apex...so I will need the DOS.

    Will Neptune sell just the controller? or perhaps a trident controller combo? I think allot of folks don't need the outlets,..want to use the ones they already have.

    This is quite possible down the road. At the moment we are overwhelmed with orders for the full Apex System as we are entering the busy season so all production must go towards that.

    So dosing Mg, Alk and Ca requires 3 dosing-heads, last I looked my DOS only had two awesome reliable heads?
    Any plans for DOS with more heads or should you add another 2 head unit?

    Would love to test this product!

    The Trident uses a single dosing head that is built into the unit.

    Yes I know, but if I want to automate the whole process I will need 3 heads to dose ;-)

    Are you planning of having releases of Trident for Europe? We are really interested in your products. Profilux 4 is a horrible product.

    Yes. The Trident will be available in EU. The only possible sticking point might be the reagents. But our intent is to have it be a worldwide product.

    Can I assume that 2017 Neptune Apex is the most current unit available.

    Yes, the Apex released last year is our most recent model.

    Looking forward to this release, but a question, maybe a little off the wall...
    do you see me ever being able to ask Alexa or Siri what my calcium is? Or temperature, Ph, etc? Would be awesome!

    Hi Terence,

    Will Apex be releasing a Trident/2016 head unit bundle at all?

    Although you have stated that it is not your intention to sell the head unit separately, referring to the added value of buying a whole new system, in the EU and UK, we cannot buy the EB832 and have to date received no comment on when or if Neptune will release a UK/EU version.

    It would be great if you could make a comment to give us an idea of your intentions.

    Best regards & Merry Christmas

    Rob

    Hello all,

    I am really excited about the Trident ...

    A couple of days ago a friend of mine (owner of a GHL) received the KH director and we were looking thru the configurations possible with it.

    So if you are doing 2 part, balling, triton, etc you can specify to increase or decrease the amount of dosing by percentage. If your KH falls you can setup the Doser to dose 5% more.

    For the ones who are using a Calcium reactor if your KH falls bellow the defined threshold you have the capability to say to the pH probe to lower the value inside the Ca reactor by a defined percentage.

    To my knowledge right now you cannot change dynamically a value inside an outlet based on a set of conditions.

    @terence ... can you tell us if we will have this kind of capabilities with Trident when connected to a DÖS?

    All the best,
    Rui
