FMM Accessories

Flow Sensor – 2″ (FS-200)

Usually used with a return pump, this flow sensor can be placed in line with the flow on any pipe, connected to the FMM, and communicate to your Apex the flow rate of water through that pipe. The flow sensor itself uses British Standard Parallel Pipe (BSPP) threads so for North American customers we have included two specially designed PVC unions with slip fittings to adapt it to standard 2″ PVC plumbing. The FS-200 will work with flow rates from 300-3000 gph.

Flow Sensor – 1″  (FS-100)

Usually used with a return pump, this flow sensor can be placed in line with the flow on any pipe, connected to the FMM, and communicate to your Apex the flow rate of water through that pipe. The flow sensor itself uses BSPP threads so for North American customers we have included two specially designed PVC unions with slip fittings to adapt it to standard 1″ PVC plumbing.  The FS-100 will work with flow rates from 150-1500 gph.

Flow Sensor – 1/2″  (FS-50)

Usually used with aquarium accessories like reactors, carbon/GFO filters, etc., this flow sensor can be placed in line with the flow on any pipe, connected to the FMM, and communicate to your Apex the flow rate of water through that pipe. The flow sensor itself uses BSPP threads so for North American customers we have included two specially designed PVC adapters with slip fittings to adapt it to standard 1/2″ PVC plumbing.  The FS-50 will work with flow rates from 30-250 gph.

Flow Sensor – 1/4″ with push-fit connectors  (FS-25)

Usually used with aquarium accessories like RODI inputs, calcium reactor feed lines etc., this flow sensor can be placed in line with the flow on 1/4″ tubing, connected to the FMM, and communicate to your Apex the flow rate of water through that pipe. The flow sensor itself uses push-fit connectors to make connecting to your system as simple as possible.  The FS-25 will work with flow rates from 3-12 gph.

Optical Level Sensor  (OS-1)

This sensor plugs into your FMM and, using reflected infrared light, will signal your Apex when it changes state from being wet to dry or dry to wet. This sensor can be used for constructing your own ATO (auto-top-off), as a high-level warning sensor in your sump, water storage level sensor, and much more. The sensors can be mounted into custom brackets or through a hole in a vessel. Included are a fastening nut and silicone washer.  These sensors are sold individually.

Leak Detection Probe for use under carpet  (LD-1)

Plug this probe into your FMM and then place it underneath your carpet near your aquarium. Upon contact with water this probe will communicate to your Apex and alerts or other actions can then take place. Don’t have carpet, see the next probe listed here. Note: The LD-1 will only work with the FMM and cannot be used with the ALD module.

Leak Detection Probe for solid surfaces  (LD-2)

Plug this probe into your FMM and then place it on any surface where you want to detect stray water. Upon contact with water this probe will communicate to your Apex and alerts or other actions can then take place.  Time is so critical when it comes to water on the floor so it is very common to place two of these inside the stand and two outside the stand to have the ultimate protection against a leaky aquarium.  Note: The LD-2 will only work with the FMM and cannot be used with the ALD module.

PMUP (Practical Multi-purpose Utility Pump)

The PMUP is a 24VDC submersible pump that was designed to directly connect to the DC24 accessory ports on either the FMM Module, 1Link module, OR the same ports on the new Energy Bar 832.  If you own our WAV powerheads or our new Apex, then you have a place to plug it in!  These ports are switchable and can power the pump on and off just like any other outlet on an Energy Bar.

The PMUP is a multi-purpose pump that can be used for many different tasks on your aquarium like: ATO, Make-Water Stations, Media Reactors, etc.  For more information on the PMUP, click here to go to the full product page.

Solenoid Valve (SV-1)

This 24VDC powered, normally-closed (NC), solenoid valve has push-fit tubing input and outputs designed for standard 1/4″ tubing. The electrical connection on this solenoid valve fits the DC24 accessory ports found on the FMM, 1Link, and Energy Bar 832 products. Common uses include safety stops for RODI systems, CO2 systems on calcium reactors, and many other places where you want to control the on/off flow of water, air, or other gasses. This solenoid valve can also be used with our standalone 24VDC power supply (not included) if you do not own one of the above products and want to use this solenoid valve with your Energy Bar 8 or Energy Bar 4.

Power Supply – 24VDC 36W (PS-36-US)

This 24VDC, 36W power supply is used with the FMM so that you can attach the powered accessories above like the PMUP or the Solenoid Valve. This power supply is for 110V USA-style  outlets.

Power Supply – 24VDC 36W (PS-36-SCHUKO)

This 24VDC, 36W power supply is used with the FMM so that you can attach the powered accessories above like the PMUP or the Solenoid Valve. This power supply is for 220V European-style Schuko outlets.
