    Ok, ok, here are some pictures of the ready device we have in testing at the moment. The device should be also ready for sale in 6-8 Weeks. 30cm x 12cm x 13cm

    You know, Christmas is the time for wonders.... [​IMG]

    Have fun
    Nicolas + Jamie

    Please keep in mind that this is a Prototyp and someparts will maybe look different in the finalized version....

    I'm afraid Santa will not have time to collect....
    Time frame is more in line with "what I want to add to my tank" new year resolutions.

    I am still waiting to get firm pricing info. It should be available in a few days.


    On a few forums we have been asked to make comparisons to specific other dosing system, which is not our policy at all. Therefor, an 'official' statement from Vertex, plus some specific info. :p


    @ Vertex we try to refrain from making a direct comparison to other brands, there are many products available on the market which can suit needs of different users / systems however just overall differences to other Doser available and how our vision of a dosing pump has materialized in Libra:
    1- Higher lpm dosing capability
    2- Higher pump and drive accuracy ( tested compared to many other pump makes)
    3- Possibility of using step-motors to achieve accuracy of +/- 3%
    4- Tube assembly disassembled easily
    5- Ability to dose different amount of the same liquid in different days of the week so in essence you can custom program the unit to behave differently on different days
    6- stoichiometry Manager ; Integra program will enable you to input tank parameters and volume…. And the unit will calculate for you how much of each liquid you need. We are currently finalizing this feature and hopefully activated in the initial release of the program or Via a Firmware upgrade shortly after!
    7- Touch screen and intuitive user interface
    8- Firmware upgradeable
    9- Robust durable Aluminum Housing
    10- Pumps made in Japan ( most units use either Chinese or Italian made pumps)
    11- Product Designed and manufactured by Vertex Aquaristik In Austria

    More Info coming soon...

    Hallo Libra fans,

    we are almost there! I've been playing with the prototype and trying to fathom all the possibilities. When coupled with the Cerebra, this is truly Sci-Fi. I'm finding that, with my somewhat stubby fingers, I can better programm with a pen. I can't deal with a smart fone either!

    When the price is here, I'll let you know.

    greetings from the North Pole,

    Santa
