Just an update on this. I've been reading here and there, have not seen any great pictures of the Jebao DCP line of pumps (at least not of the controller). I sent an email to fishstreet and he said they will be releasing a new controller for the DCP line with an rj45 jack (for the Apex), but I see know reason why we can't tie into this.

Release date is Dec 15th (we'll see)

This was my understanding anyway, there's a little bit of a language barrier there.

I wouldn't get your hopes up too much. They have been saying they will have that controller for their older models of pumps.

Fish street as a new controller, the aqualink A1. Now we can hook up the RA to the DCT, DCS, and CP pumps

Well that's exciting!, do you have one, or have one on the way? Shouldn't be to hard to get it to work right?

Sorry for the couple day late response, was on vacation

I downloaded the manual from Fish Street for the DC controller, but his directions are backwards. The description says Channel 1 is flow, but the picture says channel 1 is direction. Does anyone know which is correct for the rj45 port? I'm assuming for a DC pump, we would only be interested in flow.

I had limited discussions with Eric from Fishstreet. I've attached a drawing for what I think I'm supposed to do. He said that 5 and 6 are for speed, 1 and 2 are for direction.

I don't think we would worry about direction with a DC pump? So 1 and 2 are not needed?

Another stupid question, is this 0-10v pwm or 0-10v analog? There's such a language barrier with them, it's hard to understand. (and I'm green with a lot of this that may be obvious to some :mrgreen: )

Sorry, I don't have this controller. I run a waveline pump.

How do you have that connected to the RA? I assume an rj45, but which pins?

I think I have most of this figured out.

Does anyone know if the signal is PWM or Analog?

I've seen posts that its pwm, and then the A1 manual says analog???

Edit: after more digging the Apex is analog, as is the waveline, as is the A1 controller if it's to work with the Apex. I hope to order a pump/controller soon and will update this thread.
