    What do you need it to do ... And why must it be Aqua Medic?

    Elo Chikaboo,
    I bought a AM wave and it sits at the bottom cabinite, so it cannot sense the tank light, hence I need the external one that plugs in so it can switch to night mode when the tank lights go out :)

    Plz post a pic of the socket where this sensor is supposed to plug into .... maybe can get away with an ordinary photo cell ... need to see the connection socket though......

    Looks pretty straight forward ... Get to A1 in Umgeni road and get a photo cell with the leads attached ... then solder it to the other side of the jack plug and place it where you want ... done!

    Sorry bud but would be best to explain what type of lighting you running and how far you putting the sensor and the will advise you on the correct spec
