Is BRS still going to offer this at the $375 price point? I signed up for the notice but haven't heard anything yet.

Thanks

Hi there,

Once it hits our warehouse (and we send the email to those that have signed up), it depends how quickly it sells out. Vertex is offering the intro price for sure on the initial batch. Since it’s a new product, it’s unknown how quickly the initial batch will sell out.

I tried to buy mine, but did not make it to the bank fast enough. Sad to say I had to pre-order it elsewhere.

They shipped from Germany late last week, so I would guess we will be seeing them in around 2 to 3 weeks. :)

We are working on receiving in a number of systems today, and we will get them shipped out within one business day. Additionally, we are expecting to ship a second batch within the next couple weeks to remaining preorders. :)

Unfortunately I don't believe so, but I'm not certain.

My understanding, from emailing with Vertex, is that it will use any probe that has a standard BNC connection. It will use any switch so long as it is terminated with a miniDIN connection.

Had to share my story. So I look on reef central today after I got done cutting the grass and out of the shower. I saw people posting that theirs had shipped already and they would get the cerebra Monday. I went to my email and saw mine shipped Wednesday. So I grab the tracking number and headed on over to ups website to see where my package was. Ups showed that my package was delivered at 5:09 and current time was 5:17. I ran over to my front door and it was sitting right there!!! Brought in the box and here is what I got :)http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/255c1dd6db0c75819a28bd527eaacfee.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/b47faa1dfd99f39640d6ae900299e4c0.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/192c22662433fc31ccfe66ef0b138f63.jpg can't wait to test this system out!

Drove by and picked up my Cerebra today. Was like Christmas all over again!

One question for BRS- while a appreciate the free sensor mount, what is it supposed to actually mount? The Cerebra power sensor doesn't fit in it!

Err, I meant temperature probe. Both Vertex's temp probe and BRS's pH probe do not fit.

How close is the pH probe to fitting? Can you drill it out to fit?

jkobel
08/31/2016, 06:22 PM
What about the Temp probe? Mine is much larger than the hole in the holder you folks supplied...is there a specific holder intended to be used here or is it intended to sit on the bottom of the sump?

Probe holder snapped when I started drilling it. :lolspin:

The thing doesn't seem to be thought out very well by Vertex. It's a cheap, thin plexiglass sheet that they just drilled holes into. Even if any probes fit, they'd slide right through since there is nothing holding them in the "holder".

The XD sensor mount will fit the temp probe :)

From the product page:

Hold your standard probes in style. Vertex Sensor-Mag XD Titanio is an acrylic probe holder with three magnets and three titanium screws.

2 Standard size holes and 1 Bigger which will accommodate the Apex Temperature probe

Typo? :)

Good catch :P The XD was built before the Cerebra and was one of the only mag holders that could hold the Apex probe. I will get that updated to say both :)
