Ecotech Marine VXB-1 Versa Base Station - add up to 4 dosing pumps to the VXB-1 Base Station.
Base Station Only - The base allows the versa pumps to work together and allows them to be powered by a single power supply.
The Versa is a specifically designed peristaltic pump from EcoTech Marine. The Versa is extremely precise, robust and versatile. The Versa is capable of being used as a dosing pump, as an auto top off (ATO) pump and even for automatic water changes.
This listing is for a Single Pump & Power Supply - VX-1. This also includes a mounting triangle to mount the pump to a cabinet etc.
The Versa utilizes a DC stepper motor with a planetary drive mechanism. Smart control and BLE connectivity means super quick and simple calibration and programming from your phone or tablet. Once calibrated the Versa is amazingly accurate for small volume dosing and extremely quick for large volume dosing. The pump can dispense a huge volumetric range in discreet increments or continuously. The robust construction and ETM support means this will be the last peristaltic aquarium pump you purchase.
The experienced hobbyist will understand immediately what makes the Versa a clear choice for the accomplished reef keeper. Those new to dosing and water change pumps will get to experience the future of a multi-purpose aquarium pump. The Versa can be purchased as a single pump or as a 4 pack that includes a detachable consolidated power rail base station. Individual pumps can be added to a base station if purchased separately.

Mobius is EcoTech’s new Equipment control app. Mobius is available for free download from the iOS and Android app store (available at time of Versa publis launch). Mobius turns your smartphone or device into the control center for your EcoTech equipment including the Versa. The Versa pump is controllable exclusively with Mobius and is not backwards compatible with EcoSmart Live.
The base station includes a tactile button for each pump to manually dose or prime a pump (both functions are also available through the Mobius app).
The Mobius app is required to create a 24 hour dosing schedule for the Versa.

Flow Range: The Versa can be used for a wide range of aquarium applications. Fine control of very small dosing quantities allows the Versa to be used as a dosing pump.
Heavy Duty: The high capacity and commercial grade construction mean it can be employed for auto-top off, water changes and feeding* in addition to dosing. * Feeding dependent on liquid viscosity etc.
Stepper Motor and Planetary Gear drive: This drive configuration is optimized for precision and longevity. Two important characteristics for a market leading Peristaltic Pump.
Mobius programming- including safeguards, catch-up and a myriad of other features: A defining characteristic of EcoTech equipment is the versatility and power of control offered to the aquarium hobbyist. A defining characteristic of Mobius is packaging all this capability in a way that makes programming and control intuitive, quick and super easy.
