Profilux 4e

ProfiLux 4e – True reliability is now more affordable

 

The “e” in ProfiLux 4e stands for essential. The ProfiLux 4e features the same high degree of quality and reliability as the flagship ProfiLux 4, at a more attractive price.

The ProfiLux 4e was designed for aquarists who may not immediately need all the features of the flagship ProfiLux 4 controller. With more connections right out of the box than any competing controller, the P4e provides aquarium monitoring and control without sacrificing the essentials; built-in temperature and pH/ORP inputs, 1-10V control, level control, Wi-Fi and much more.

Best in value and expansion

ProfiLux 4e includes ports and features used by most hobbyists. No need to go out and buy external modules just to do the basics!

Built-in Level sensor support
Connect float, optical, flow, and leak sensors

Ports for 1-10v devices
Connect 1-10V pumps and devices

Built-in display and touch keys
Check current probe values, change settings, start feed pauses, and more from the on-board display

Expandable
ProfiLux 4e can grow with your aquatic needs. Additional ports and sensor inputs can be added at anytime with GHL Expansion Cards or Expansion Box.

The ProfiLux line of controllers are globally recognized for its outstanding accuracy and reliability. From hobbyists to research institutions, they all trust in the ProfiLux to provide them with highly accurate data and performance.

From form to function, the ProfiLux 4e is well-equipped to manage important tasks such as lighting control, water parameter measurement/control, level control, pump control, and much more. The P4e includes integrated modules for measuring Temperature and pH/Redox. Connections for level sensors, leakage sensors, and 1-10V interfaces are also included.
Built-in WiFI and USB connections ensure optimal connectivity to keep you well informed about the status of your aquarium via web interface, e-mail, and myGHL cloud service *)

The controller provides 3 expansion slots on board for expansion Cards with additional sensor inputs, 1-10V outputs, PC interfaces, or Digital inputs. It is further expandable with the Expansion Box 2.
