HYDROS DC Micro Pump Application Example
With a HYDROS DC Micro Pump and a HYDROS Optical Water Level Sensor (or Float Sensor), you can use your HYDROS Control aquarium controller as an ATO system. Just plug your HYDROS DC Micro Pump into a HYDROS Drive Port and the HYDROS Optical Water Level Sensor into a Sense Port on your HYDROS Control aquarium controller and adjust your settings using the HYDROS app. You can add additional HYDROS Optical Water Level Sensors and/or mechanical float sensors to your ATO configuration for redundancy or to set high/low points to suit your specific aquarium needs. Once properly configured, the water level sensor(s) can be set to "tell" your HYDROS Control aquarium controller to refill or top off your aquarium employing the HYDROS DC Micro Pump placed inside a reservoir of fresh, clean water for aquarium use.

AutoAqua General Information
The HYDROS DC Micro Pump is an Official HYDROS Accessory manufactured by AutoAqua in Taiwan. As creators of the Smart ATO Micro, AutoAqua is one of the most well-known and trusted makers of aquarium automation systems in the hobby today. CoralVue has thoroughly tested the HYDROS DC Micro Pump to ensure seamless compatibility with the HYDROS platform.

No additional power source is needed to run the sensor.

General Information
Hydros aquarium controllers are the next generation of automated aquarium devices. Rather than relying on each individual device’s brain and programming capacity, the Hydros Control units have their own CPU and control capabilities. Hydros Control devices remove the problem of incompatible ports and need to continually add modules to expand your aquarium’s automation system. This new technology is called the Hydros Sense Port. The Sense Port is an entirely new concept in aquarium monitoring technology. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors. Drive Ports provide 12-volt power for controlling ATO pumps, cooling fans, and other devices. Hydros is the future of automation!
