If you have an advanced aquarium setup that requires some complicated wiring to connect it to a power source, then the GHL Powerhub-6D-PAB should certainly be considered. GHL, a company that is very involved with university research departments and labs around the world, manufactured this product with expert hobbyists and professional aquariums in mind.
Instead of using sockets, such as those found in GHL’s Powerbar 6E-PAB, the Powerhub has six relays that can be controlled independently of one another. Multiple pieces of equipment such as two return pumps can can be controlled with one relay. Note the Powerhub is compatible with both the Profilux 3 and 4 controllers.
The Powerhub is a centralized source of power that has built-in load measurement, making it possible to see power consumption for each relay. Industry-grade mechanical relays are used to ensure the highest level of safety. This allows the Powerhub to withstand very high electrical loads that are common with metal halide ballasts, large power supplies, large chillers and other high powered devices. Again, this piece of equipment is not for the every day hobbyist given the wiring involved so it is best to have an electrician do the install.
If you would like some help with a new tank build, including help designing a custom aquarium, or help re-configuring your current setup then you can visit this page for more information. And if you are looking to add some equipment, I do sell GHL, Pax Bellum, Reef Octopus Calcium and Kalk Reactors and Royal Exclusiv products, including Dreamboxes, which is the equipment I use and recommend. I also sell Reef Brite metal halide and LED fixtures as well as Maxspect & IceCap Gyres.
As for additional insights and information, please explore my many other reef tank and SPS related articles as well as my YouTube channel. For an even deeper dive into reef tank care you can check out my Reef Keeping Master Class. This online course is an immersive and one of a kind educational tool designed to help reef aquarium hobbyists build and maintain a beautiful SPS reef tank. The course is a series of video presentations with some supplemental video from my YouTube channel. There are also quizzes to help students retain and understand the information presented in the course.
Need some frags…..I can help with that as well 🙂 Please visit my SPS Frag store to see what is available.
