VORTECH® MODES:

FLOW

Lagoon Mode

Lagoon mode simulates a low-energy lagoon environment. The speed of the pump is changed slowly to recreate the gentle currents of a lagoon.

Reef Crest Mode

Reef Crest Random mode simulates a high-energy reef environment. The pump will change speed frequently and drastically to simulate crashing waves and surging tide. This is a favorite of SPS coral.

Gyre Mode

Gyre mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform clockwise and *counterclockwise flow levels pulsing at a selected interval between two seconds and two hours.

*Alternating directional gyre requires multiple pumps.

Short Pulse Mode

Short Pulse mode creates a flow pattern consisting of uniform high and low levels pulsing at a selected interval between 0.2 seconds and 2 seconds.

Tidal Swell Mode

Tidal Swell mode (TSM) creates a harmonic balance reminiscent of the changing flow conditions found in nature. Over the course of several hours, the flow pattern will go from very chaotic to calm, followed by a detritus-clearing surge at the very end of the cycle. The flow direction will change direction every cycle.

Nutrient Transport Mode

Nutrient Transport mode (NTM) creates circulation in a two-phase program. The first phase uses wave motion to stir up detritus. The second phase follows with a surging motion to move the detritus into the overflow and out of the aquarium. This mode promotes maximum health, nutrient export and increased growth for sensitive corals such as SPS.

 

FUNCTION

Feed Mode

At the touch of the button, all VorTech® wirelessly enabled pumps will temporarily pause their current mode and idle allowing food to be added to the tank without being cycled into the overflow and filtration.

Night Mode

Pumps can be enabled to run a gentler night time program simulating calmer ocean conditions for night time hours.

Wave Auto-Tune

Create a standing wave in your aquarium and demonstrate the true power of the fully operational VorTech® QuietDrive® control system.

 

CAPABILITY

Multi-Pump Communication

All “w” denominated VorTech® pumps come with an RF module installed. The RF module will allow up to 8 “w” pumps of any type to work together in sync, anti-sync or coordinated modes.

EcoSmart® Live via Mobile Device

All “w” denominated VorTech® pumps are compatible with ReefLink®. ReefLink provides completely wireless access to the world of EcoSmart Live, the web-based aquarium command center from EcoTech Marine®.

Battery Backup Mode

Blizzard. Hurricane. A motorist hits a utility pole. Stuff happens. The power goes out… VorTech® pumps are compatible with the EcoTech® Battery Backup accessory.
