- breakout box
This is an absolute must have and so much easier to use then the Neptune breakout box. Very simple and straightforward.
Kit was easy to assemble, having a level 3 soldering training ease of connections are a breeze. Might be handy to a simple paper with a exploded view of wiring color diagram, while the youtube video is very clear. A paper insert would take it over the top.
I love this product! It was very easy to put together and very well constructed. I’m considering buying another one for my other reef tank as this breakout box is way better built than the Neptune version.
This is a great breakout box. Works perfectly. Having the ground connector separate for each switch makes life so much easier. They sell this in two versions, one is fully built and the cost is close to the same as the Apex box. The other (the one I bought) is about half the price but requires assembly and a bit of soldering. No instructions were included so you have to look up a how to video on Youtube. Once you have the video, assembly is easy and the soldering is very basic but you do need soldering supplies on hand. It took me about 30 minute to assemble and there were not any issues. This unit works flawlessly with the Apex controller.
Once I found a clear view of what I was supposed to do it was easy. The avast website how to video didn’t show a close enough view to distinguish what poles you were supposed to solder.
