MagTool MT-360P is a compact Auto Top Off system for all sizes of freshwater and marine aquariums. Combining the optical auto refilling sensor and an anti-overfilling sensor in one pack, along with integrated QST v2.0, ETFT, and AFT algorithm, the MT-360P precisely keeps the water level in right position and provides real-time protection against any failure and abnormality. Using MATO-360P to automatically replenish your water; maintaining a consistent salinity level better than manually and save you from this annoying chore.
Patented QST v2.0, EFTT, & AFT Technologies Ensure Constant Water Level
The MagTool MT-360P will start filling below the "LOW" position & fill slightly higher than the "LOW" position. The "HIGH" position will prevent overfilling. The newest MagTool ATO also has patented EFTT, AFT, & QTS technologies. These smart technologies allow the ATO device to work more safely compared to others on the market.
The MagTool ATO recognizes the aquariums size by timing how long it takes to fill the water from “LOW” to “HIGH” position & caculates a a extra filling time called ETFT(Extra Time Filling Technology). In normal working condition the device fills the water to the "LOW" position and will continue pumping for one extended filling time cycle until the water level reaches above “LOW” but never going above the “HIGH” position. The ETFT will precisely keep the water level between the "LOW" and the "HIGH" sensors. This unique feature allows extra time of rest between refills, therefore it increases the product’s life span.
Most ATO’s in the market start and stop the water pump too quickly due to the water level fluctuation caused by many factors. The frequent starting & stopping will shorten the pump’s life span and efficiency. Our smart ATO uses AFT (Anti-Fluctuation Technology) to identify and recognize any false water fluctuation; it only starts the pump when the level is below "LOW".
The controller uses QST (Quick Security Technology) for real-time protection against overfilling and flooding. The controller will give a visual alert and stop the pump immediately when it senses a refilling time takes more than 6 times longer than the ETFT. QST can detect sensor malfunction or empty reservoir. In version 2.0 we incorporate ETFT feature and not relying on first filling time from version 1. Our ATO’s are far safer. Flooding barely happens when following the instructions carefully.
Built-in LED indicators to show working status！
Alternating red and blue: device is booting up/initializing.
Solid blue LED: Stand by.
Slow flashing blue LED: pump is refilling the water.
Fast flashing blue LED: Water lever reached HIGH sensor, anti-overfilling works. (After 10 seconds quick flash, the LED will become solid, no need to act)
RED LED flashing: QST 2.0 alarm. 6 times longer than ETFT (the time it takes to fill your tank, which is calculated during initialization, aka about 50% of the time it takes to fill from LOW sensor to HIGH sensor).
When will the controller activate the pump to fill water?
When the water level is below the “Low” sensor, the controller will activate the pump to fill water. The controller slowly flashes a blue LED during the refilling.
When will the controller stop the pump refilling water?
AnswerThe controller stops the pump under 3 conditions:
- Water level reaches the "LOW" position and continues until 1 ETF, the good working condition.
- Water level reach up to HIGH sensor position, anti-over-fill mechanism stops the pump.
- Water refilling time reaches up to 6x the extended filling time. Pump stops to avoid dry running, or over-filling.
QuestionWhy in start-up mode does the water lever reach the "HIGH" sensor, and when normally refilling the water does it stop between the "LOW" and "HIGH"?
In start-up mode, the controller needs to fill the water to the "HIGH" position in order to recongize your aquariums size & calculate the EFT accurately.
In normal working condition the device fills the water to the "LOW" position and will continue pumping for one extended filling time cycle until the water level reaches above “LOW” but never going above the “HIGH” position. The EFTT will precisely keep the water level between the "LOW" and the "HIGH" sensors.
How does the device calculate the ETF?
The ETF is calculated in start-up mode.
- When the water level is BELOW the “LOW” position, EFT is determined by ½ the time it takes to fill from “LOW” to “HIGH”
- When the water level is BETWEEN the “LOW” and “HIGH” positions, EFT is determined by the time it takes to fill from “LOW” to “HIGH”
