Neptune Systems Dual 120V Socket Expansion Information



While most aquarium owners can agree on the list of distinct benefits and pleasures owning an aquarium brings them, one of the key challenges they face is how to deal with the eletrical load of their aquatic systems. Your fish's residence requires a lot of equipment which needs their own power outlet. At the most basic, you'll need aquarium lighting, a filter, and a pump. This is just a basic set up. More elaborate aquariums need light modulating controllers and centralized control units.

That's a lot of wires! That's a lot of devices sharing a power strip. This might lead to a dangerous circuit overload situation. Thankfully, one of the most trusted names in the aquarium controller industry has come up with a power strip that helps you reduce your system's load on a direct connect (DC) unit. The Neptune Systems Dual 120V Socket Expansion from Pet Store has two controllable outlets that can reduce your circuit's power budget. This avoids power overload hazards. Compact, smartly designed, and quite unobtrusive, this unit gives your system the flexibility it needs to handle the power requirements of your many aquarium components.

The Neptune Systems Dual 120V Socket Expansion can switch to high power loads of up to 15 Amps for loads of 120V. It also has an internal relay that does not consume much power. It is also easy to mount and install due to two mounting holes built into the unit.

The Socket Expansion box is a small power strip with controllable 2 outlets used to reduce the power load on a direct connect (DC) box. Since power is supplied from a different circuit, the Direct Connect box`s power budget is not affected. Features of the Socket Expansion box include:
  • Dual outlets so two devices can be controlled by the same channel
  • High reliability direct wired control connection to Direct Connect outlet
  • It can switch high power (up to 15 Amps) 120V loads
  • The internal relay has negligible power consumption so it does not affect the power budget of the Direct Connect box
  • 2 Mounting Holes for easy installation.

Simple relay in a nice package Product Review by MARK, 5.56 (Posted on 8/28/08)

Excellent!

Comments: the weakest part of this product is the description, I was not completely sure what I was getting when I ordered it. here is what you get, a relay in a box with 2 sockets and 2 cords, one (the smaller one) plugs in to your DC-8 and triggers the relay, the other (heavier) plugs into the wall. I was having almost daily problems with breakers tripping, my DC-8 getting hot and GFCI nuisance (surge) trips, I used one of these for my chiller and the other for 3X 250W halides, all those problems are solved now, and for a fraction of the price of a DC-8 or DC-4HD

The Truth Product Review by Trickman2 (Posted on 1/28/12)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Okay so I bought this box after looking at the reviews. Here is what they did not tell you. The box only adds one port to your system. It feels like cheap plastic. Why I don't like it, It has two power cords, one low voltage one which turns it on, the second cord goes into a standard wall outlet or power bar. So yes it does reduce the load off of the controllers power. So what is the Cons:
#1) You can't monitor the load on the apex, as the main power does not go into the unit.
#2) It requires one outlet on the apex power bar.
#3) You can't control the Two sockets individually.


Three strikes your out...Sorry look elsewhere.
