Aquastream vs Aquastream XT

Wednesday, February 18th 2009, 6:06am

What are the advantages of the Aquastream XL as opposed to using the old style Aquastream along with an Aquaero. Trying to decide if it is worth getting three (3) new pumps for my Feeding Frenzy project. I have two older Aquastream pumps now and it looks like I will need to buy at least one.

I suggest you're talking about the Auqastream XT...

I'm not exactly sure, what the old controller was capable of, but depending on the version of the XT you're buying, you have the following features directly implemented on the pump itself:
- USB-port
- fan-output
and the option to connect
- temperature- and
- flow-sensors
The pump is also capable to recognize rotation of the impeller and to automaticly recognize the maximum frequency. The maximum delivery height is now 4,2m.

Hope, I could help...

Just download the aquasuite and run it in demo mode so you will get an better idea of all features.

Well what I was thinking about was using two older Aquastream pumps hooked up to the Aquaero and using one Aquastream XT in stand alone mode (no connection via USB or is that even possible?)

You can also run it without a USB connection but in this case you can not access all the new features.

So you don't need the Aquaero if you use the XT via an USB cable? How many XT pumps can I run on that interface with the Aquasuite?

Maximum number of aquastream XT pumps = number of root hubs on your mainboard

Should be at least 1024 :D
