Reef Factory Smart Tester

Reef Factory Smart Tester

Introducing the revolutionary Smart Tester – an advanced device for testing key water parameters in marine aquariums. This fully automated and accurate tester provides instant and accurate results of the selected parameter, which are easily accessible through the Smart Reef app. With the ability to schedule measurements and easily replace reagent cartridges, the Smart tester makes monitoring tank parameters a breeze. The device is designed so that calibration is rarely performed and cleaning is automatic, offering unparalleled convenience. From now on you can not only automate the testing of the selected parameter PO4, NO3, Mg, Ca, but also, using actions that integrate the Smart tester with dosing pumps, automate the maintenance of the selected parameter at a certain level.

Most important features:

Managed remotely with the Smart Reef app

Up to 160 tests on one set of reagents*

Fully automated analysis

Quiet and accurate operation of the original dosing pumps manufactured in-house

Rapid replacement of the tested parameter based on easy-to-install reagent cartridges

Uses only 50 ml of water per single measurement

Built-in automatic calibration of the device

Compact size 210x140x95 and modern design

Easy installation in the sump using DIN rail

peristaltic pumps

Smart tester operates on the basis of completely new, in-house manufactured peristaltic pumps, developed by the Reef Factory team. Their construction is designed to meet a number of requirements for marine aquarium equipment. They are characterized by high dosing accuracy and trouble-free operation for as long as possible, and they are also very quiet.

Full automation

The Smart Tester performs the measurement completely autonomously, from taking a water sample to emptying the measuring cell and making it fully functional again for the next test. One-time calibration of the device after installation does not require tedious repetitions, as it has an automatic dosing pump calibration system. This guarantees the longest possible periods of trouble-free operation and extremely accurate dosing.

Modern device installation

To meet the needs of aquarists, we have improved the method of placing equipment in the aquarium. Reef Factory's latest equipment features an innovative DIN rail-based mounting system. This is an extremely convenient and adaptable solution that makes keeping the closet in order easier.

*The number of tests per set varies depending on the selected parameter.

Special reagent packs for smart testers

To measure the selected parameter, you need to purchase a set of special reagent cartridges for the Smart tester:

Mg – measurement of magnesium

Number of tests from one set: ~50 (the number depends on the concentration of Mg ions)

Measuring range: 800-1800ppm

Measurement resolution: 10 ppm

Test duration: ~40-60 min

PO4 – measurement of phosphates

Number of tests from one set: 160

Measuring range: 0.00-3.00 ppm
