The aqualis series reservoirs are equipped with a borosilicate glass tube which, unlike the acrylic glass commonly used for tube reservoirs, has very high hardness and scratch resistance, very low thermal expansion and excellent chemical and thermal resistance. The glass tube has an outer diameter of 75 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm. The base and lid of the aqualis series are made of Delrin, the lid and bottom are connected by a nickel-plated brass tube. A visual highlight is the integrated water column effect.
If the return line is connected to the central connection of the aqualis, the water flows through the central brass tube to the cover and exits through eight openings, which is a real eye-catcher especially in connection with lighting. A thin acrylic sheet close to the bottom of the aqualis minimizes air entry into the circuit. Alternatively, the return can be connected to a side port, the water then flows back from the ground into the surge tank. For this configuration, a baffle is included, which in turn ensures good ventilation of the circuit.
The aqualis XT variants also have an acrylic glass window integrated into the floor and can accommodate up to six LEDs and are also equipped with electronic level measurement with USB and aquabus interface, a configurable alarm output and an external temperature sensor input. For monitoring and configuration the software aquasuite is available for download. The four-pin aquabus interface also allows direct connection to an aquaero 5 controller (not included).
The alarm output can either be configured as an artificial tacho signal for connection to a fan output with tacho signal evaluation (eg of the mainboard) or as a switching output, for example for switching an LED in the event of an alarm. For alarm monitoring, in addition to the measured level, the external temperature sensor input is also available. The external temperature sensor input is compatible with all temperature sensors offered by Aqua Computer.
