Keep it steady with the new KH Director. Monitor, maintain, and control Alkalinity with ease.

Available in two housing color options: Black or White


KH Director® – Features

Measure your Alkalinity with lab-grade accuracy. With only a 100 ml water sample, KH Director® can provide measurement values with 0.1 ° dKH accuracy.

In practice, an accuracy of  0.1 ° dKH is not always necessary. For that the test sample volume can be reduced. An accuracy of approx. 0.2 ° dKH can still be achieved with a smaller water sample.

If the KH value does not fluctuate strongly the number of measurements can be reduced.

Test your Alkalinity with confidence and consistency. Built-in valves ensure exacly the same measurement conditios and prevent the sample liquid from flowing back into the aquarium, even in the unlikely event of a fault.

Each test requires only 1 – 3 ml per measurement.

Examine past test results, catch sudden KH swings, and fine-tune your KH dosing with help from automated data logging.

Automatic supply of KH-boosting liquids.

*Fourth dosing pump required

The on-board GHL LED logo conveniently provides color-coded status indicators. The various colors show you the condition of your system at a glance.

  • White = Configuration mode
  • Blue = Normal operation
  • Green = Amount of liquid in a fluid container is OK
  • Yellow = Warning threshold – fluid container(s) are running low
  • Red = Alarm threshold – fluid container(s) are empty

Access the KHD through the myGHL® cloud service – via GHL Doser 2 / 2.1 or ProfiLux 3 / 3.1 / 4.

Through the use of the PAB (ProfiLux Aquatic Bus) connection, KH Director® seamlessly integrates into the modular GHL aquarium system. The PAB connection ensures interference free communication with other GHL PAB-devices such as the GHL Doser 2.1 or the ProfiLux® 4.

The KH Director®’s unique design makes it easy to access and maintain the included pH electrode. Calibration and replacement, made easy.

How does the KH Director® work?

The KH Director® is designed to work in conjunction with a GHL Doser 2 (2.1) Standalone or a ProfiLux® Aquarium Controller 3 or 4 with a Doser 2 Slave for operation.

The 2 inlets and 1 outlet of the KH Director connect to 3 dosing pumps on the Doser 2 (2.1). These 3 pumps are then responsible for accurately transferring fluid to and from the KH Director.

A sample of the aquarium water is first sent to the KH Director®. Subsequently, the KH value is determined precisely with slow addition of a further liquid (reagent) and measurement of the pH value.

The sample water is then pumped out again and collected in a separate container for later disposal.

Configuration options

The KH Director® can be operated in two ways:

1.

The KH Director® is connected to the GHL Doser 2 (2.1) Standalone via the ProfiLux Aquatic Bus (PAB).

GHL Doser 2.1+KH Director

With this option, the GHL Doser has full control over the measurement process and behavior of the KH Director. The GHL Doser will control both its dosing pumps and the valves in the KH Director. This will allow the doser to evaluate the measurement results and calculate the KH value.

2.

 

The KH Director® is connected to the ProfiLux 3 (3.1, 4) and a GHL Doser 2 (2.1) Slave via the ProfiLux Aquatic Bus (PAB).

ProfiLux+GHL 2.1 Slave Doser+KH Director

With this option, the ProfiLux has full control over the measuring process and behavior of both the GHL Doser and KH Director. The ProfiLux will control the dosing pumps in the doser and the valves in the KH Director. This will allow the controller to evaluate the measurement results and calculate the KH value.

Choose the combination that suits your needs best

Whether you prefer the GHL Doser 2.1 or the P4-Slave Doser combination: thanks to the ingenious design, all devices will fit perfectly with each other no matter if stacked or positioned side-by-side.
