Fully Automatic Measurement and Control of Ca, Mg, K, Na, NO3
The ION Director® (IOND for short) uses state-of-the-art ion-selective technology to automatically and accurately measure essential water parameters – calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and nitrate – with maximum comfort and affordable operating costs.
The precise and durable multi-ion sensor, specially developed by GHL for seawater analysis, requires no reagents, cost-effective reference liquids are used for the automatic calibration. Inaccurate, time-consuming, and costly measuring methods, such as test kits, are a thing of the past.
In addition to measurement, the ION Director® System offers many other functions:
- Control: Automatic readjustment of dosing pumps to keep a value stable
- Monitoring: Alarm when the value is outside an adjustable range
- Analysis: Display in charts and logbook (via app, cloud and web server GHL Connect and GHL Control Center).
Combine the ION Director® with the KH Director® and measure and control the KH value in addition to Ca, Mg, K, Na and NO3.
ION Director® – FeaturesA compact and precise multi-ion sensor in laboratory-grade quality, specially developed by GHL for seawater analysis, which combines the functions of several sensors.
There is no need for reagent liquids for measuring.
Extreme accuracy due to special electronics, sensors and measuring algorithms developed and perfected by GHL.
Economical measurements due to low consumption and inexpensive reference liquids.
The number of measurements per day can be set, additional measurements can be started manually at any time.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, a fully automatic calibration of the sensor is carried out before each measurement.
Utilizing the measurement value history, you can interpret past measurement results and react to fluctuations.
In order to achieve stable water parameters, ION Director® can automatically readjust dosing quantities of supplied liquids depending on the measurement result.
The LED-illuminated GHL logo conveniently provides color-coded status indicators. The various colors show you the condition of your system at a glance.
GHL devices offer the most connectivity options, you can choose between app, cloud, web interface or PC software via WiFi/LAN or USB.
- White = Configuration mode
- Blue = Normal operation
- Green = Measurement or dosing in progress
- Yellow = Warning threshold – fluid container(s) are running low
- Red = Alarm threshold – fluid container(s) are empty
Through the use of the PAB (ProfiLux Aquatic Bus) connection, IOND seamlessly integrates into the modular GHL system. The PAB connection ensures interference free communication with other GHL PAB-devices such as the GHL Doser 2.1 or the ProfiLux® 4.
Find out about measurement results at any time and from anywhere – via app, cloud, web server or Windows software. Display additionally values and states on the ProfiLux 3/4 display or ProfiLux Touch, if present.
The ION Director® can be used alone or in combination with the KH Director®.With the IOND and KHD, you can fully automate the regulation of the aquarium’s key water parameters. While the KHD measures and controls alkalinity, the IOND covers other important parameters necessary to maintain a healthy reef.
The ION Director® is connected to the additionally required control unit (ProfiLux 3/ 3.1/ 4 or a GHL Doser 2/2.1 Stand Alone) and the GHL Doser 2 (2.1) Slave via the ProfiLux Aquatic Bus (PAB).
With this option, a additional required ProfiLux Controller or a GHL Doser 2/2.1 Stand Alone (both not included) has full control over the measuring process and behavior of both the GHL Doser Slave and ION Director. The respective device will control the dosing pumps in the GHL Doser Slave and the valves in the ION Director. This will allow the controller to evaluate the measurement results and calculate the values.
