Aqua Go a complete aquarium controller for only 300 €
This article is also available in: italiano
Yes, you’ve read correctly the title. We are talking about a complete aquarium computer for only 300 euros.
Aqua go is a system that, similarly to the most famous Aquatronica (italian review), allows control and automation in our tank. In addition with the basic kit a GSM link is provided, to send us messages and alarms in case of troubles with the tank.
The construction of the system makes it suitable both for marine and freshwater aquariums.
In its basic construction Aqua Go consists of a control unit with a built-in display and a power unit that includes 6 electrical sockets and the sensors inlet. Those are two different temperature sensors, one outside and one inside the display and a magnetic level sensor.
Above we can appreciate the power socket with the 6 electrical sockets and the white portion that manages the sensors, in the other side of our point of view, and 2 rj45 plugs to connect the power unit. Thanks to the special feature of the data bus, the power unit can be placed also very far from the control unit.
The other side of the power unit.
Basically Aqua Go is born with the GSM connection only, and not the Wifi one that is optional. Because the GSM is much safer than the Wifi for the alarms. In fact it is very unlikely that you can miss a GSM connection, as opposed to the Wifi.
The system can even control an UPS, meaning that it can warn us if we run out of UPS power.
All of the Aqua Go sensors are magnetic and external to the tank, in the previous picture we can see all the external level sensors. It’s a convenience, of course, that prevents blockages due to snails or other, by the way.
Aqua Go can be provided with a fire detection system, as you can see above, even if in the picture it is shown upside-down.
We introduce this detail to explain the reason of its aggressive price. This system originates from the DS100 system, that belongs to the industrial automation and safety world. This fact allowed to reduce the costs of developing, and at the same time to provide the system a 24 hours a day assistance.
The system can control the temperature, both in the tank and in the room, humidity, two pH sensors, Redox, Salinity and TDS. In addition it can have anti-flooding sensors, level sensors, can control solenoid-valves and so on. All of this both in resident and remote way through the GSM connection.
I really like this system. And I think its a great purchase at this price. Of course we are in touch with its producing farm, 3lements, that will keep us informed about its evolution, and will let us have soon a complete system for our testing.
The system is on sale both in black, like in the picture, and white.
