Aquabus is the communication link between your Apex and most of our modules. The cable itself looks just like a USB cable, but it is not to be confused with a USB cable. Connecting a computer or USB accessory, like your phone, to the Aquabus will likely result in damage to that accessory and possibly to the Apex.
There are two types of Aquabus cables. One is for connecting Neptune Systems’ modules together and the other type is an extension cable. The Aquabus cables can be connected in any manner you wish— just don’t create a loop. You can daisy chain or use the connectors on your Energy Bar to make a star configuration.
This is a thirty foot Male/Male Aquabus cable that connects one module to another or connects to an Aquabus extension cable. This cable is intended to connect modules from one location to another. It is not included with any of our products. This is a great solution when your filtration area or life support area is in a different location from your aquarium.
