Unhappy Need help with Jebao to Apex

Hi All,

I have the Apex Classic and one [soon two] Jebao OW-40 Wavemaker.

I got the Jebao to Apex adapter, I tested the v1/v2/v3/v4 voltage coming from the Apex and the varspeed does work. Similarly, the wavemaker itself does work when connected to it's controller.

However, I can't make the adapter work. It's connected to the v1/v2 with an ethernet cable [which I tested and it's good wire], and the OW40 power supply is connected too [green light on the adapter is on].

I tried turning the v1 [and v2,3,4] on [100%] - nothing.

Is the adapter not compatible with this pump??

I have the PP series and the regular jebao to apex adapter works wonderfully.

From my reading the OW series needs the Aqualink A1 module to control the pumps. Only problem is you need 1 aqualink for each pump.So an additional 65 to 70 bucks per pump if you want them to be controlled by the apex.

Let's hope they'll come up with a Jabeo to Apex that works for the OW ...

Apex to Jebao OW series?

Any updates on if Jebao has an Apex adapter that works with their OW series wave makers?
