This listing is for the full Robo-Tank DIY Aquarium Controller Easy Kit.

This kit is straightforward for assembly however some minor soldering is required, there's 4 wires + 2 temperature sensors in total to be done. You also need to program the Arduino and plug into the PCB's.

One the right side of the page there's an option to select if you don't want any soldering. With this I will solder the wires and include some 12" Dupont cables that will fit the sensor pins and allow you to add the screw terminal connectors. 

To assemble the controller you only need to mount the circuit board, add a DC power socket and an external LED power indicator, all hardware is included.

To assemble the display you need to plug the display in the PCB, mount them in the case and mount the photocell on the side of the case, all hardware is included.

To assemble the pH addon you only need to mount the circuit in the case.

The 8 Outlet Energy Monitoring AC Power Bar comes fully assembled and tested.

This kit includes the following.

  • Robo-Tank 120v-240v 8 Outlet Energy Monitoring AC Power Bar (fully assembled in case and tested)
  • Robo-Tank Controller PCB (assembled and tested)
  • Robo-Tank Display PCB (assembled and tested)
  • Robo-Tank pH PCB (assembled and tested)

  • 5 Meter Waterproof DS18B20 Temperature Sensor
  • DHT22 Temperature and Humidity Sensor (requires wire and soldering)
  • DS18B20 Temperature Sensor Transistor (requires wire and soldering)
  • Standard pH probe with calibration solution packets
  • 5 Amp 12 Volt DC Power Supply with AC Power Cord
  • Approximately 5 foot AC Power Cord for Power Bar
  • 5 Meter Ethernet Patch Cable (used to connect display and power bar)
  • 6 Foot USB Cable to connect AC Power Bar to Controller
  • Photocell for Display Case (requires soldering)
  • LED Indicator and Bezel for Controller Case (requires soldering)
  • 12v DC Power Jack for Controller Case (requires soldering)

The AC power bar comes fully assembled and tested as this requires more soldering. If you enjoy soldering be sure to check out the intermediate kit.

The display, controller and power bar circuit boards are fully assembled in house using quality components and bench tested.

AC power bars with universal outlets only have 7 outlets due to space.

This kit or any other can be customized to match your needs, contact me with your requirements.
