The Aqua Computer pump module compact 600 is equipped with a long-lasting ceramic bearing made by Aqua Computer and features whisper quiet operation as well as comprehensive controlling and monitoring options. The pump module is equipped with a USB pump controller that corresponds to the controller in the well known aquastream XT pump (Standard version) with the following key features:
- Automatic speed control
- Manual speed control
- aquabus interface
- Deaeration mode
- Rotation detection
- Configurable speed signal output
The pump module can either be used as a stand-alone pump or in combination with a compatible aqualis series reservoir. A mounting bracket made from stainless steel is included in delivery, an optional decoupling set can also be used (not included in delivery).
When used with an aqualis series reservoir (art. no. 45325 or 45324), pump module and reservoir form a virtually seamless unit. The sockets at the base of the reservoir slide into form-fitting receptables of the pump module and the gaskets on the sockets establish a watertight seal. When used with a reservoir, the threads on the side of the pump module must be used to connect the water loop. Additionally, a fill level sensor of the mps series is integrated into the pump module. The fill level sensor features an integrated microcontroller with USB and aquabus interface, a programmable alarm output and an external temperature sensor input. For monitoring and configuration, the aquasuite software can be downloaded free of charge. In addition to the USB interface, the 4-pin aquabus interface can be used to directly connect the flow sensor to an aquaero 5 controller (not included in delivery). The alarm output can be configured to be used as a rpm signal to be connected to a fan connector with fault detection (for example motherboard fan headers) or to be used as a switched output for example to connect a LED. Fill level and external temperature sensor input can be configured to raise an alarm. The external temperature sensor input is compatible with all Aqua Computer temperature sensors. A pressure equalisation membrane is included in delivery of the pump module and is to be installed into the top port of the reservoir.
When used without an aqualis series reservoir, the fill level sensor is not operational! G1/4 inlet threads for fittings can be used on the top and side of the pump module, the pressure side is always connected to a G1/4 port on the side. The unused inlet thread can be sealed with a G1/4 sealing screw supplied with the pump module.
