Water quality control systems for multiple fish tanks, aquaria, etc. Our OmniCTRL systems allow you to monitor, log, and regulate water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH/CO2, and salinity in a high number of independent tanks – all from a single Windows computer. Regulate one or several parameters simultaneously and automatically to user-defined setpoints or protocols.

The OmniCTRL software lets you connect multiple measurement instruments to the same computer, and control pumps and valves through the PowerX4 devices that communicate via Bluetooth (wireless) or LAN/ethernet (cabled).

OmniCTRL is easy-to-use software for Win10/11, making it easy to log data, calibrate sensors, change measurement units, and set up automated protocols for changes in any of the four water quality parameters. Each protocol can be customized to your specific research application, and can be set to regulate in steps or in a sinusoid manner, e.g., to mimic natural fluctuations like diurnal changes. You can save and load the protocols for faster and more consistent setups.

More tanks?

A core OmniCTRL system includes software and hardware for working with a single tank and 1-way regulation (i.e., parameter level up OR down). If you need to work with more tanks, simply add one OmniCTRL system (Add-on) for each extra tank.

2-way regulation?

If you want to have 2-way regulation (i.e., parameter level up AND down) in your core OmniCTRL system, simply add the required temperature, gas, or fluid control set:

For Witrox users

OmniCTRL is fully compatible with our Witrox 1 or Witrox 4 oxygen instruments.

  • Multiple instruments connect to a single PC via Bluetooth, LAN, or USB

OmniCTRL is user-friendly software for Windows 11/10 that allows you to monitor, log, and regulate water quality parameters in a high number of independent tanks – all from a single PC. It is used with our OmniCTRL systems, and the software communicates seamlessly with required instruments for water parameter sensing, and pump/solenoid valve control for water parameter regulation.

OmniCTRL combines the functionality of the now discontinued WitroxCTRL and CapCTRL programs. You can now monitor, log, and regulate water quality parameters; temperature, oxygen, pH/CO2, and salinity in each independent tank. And with required hardware, you can even combine different parameters, like temperature and oxygen, and include both 1-way (parameter level up OR down) and 2-way regulation (parameter level up AND down). This upgraded version also features several performance improvements and new protocol functionality.

You can create customized protocols for each water quality parameter. The protocol files can be saved and later loaded back into OmniCTRL to save time and for increased consistency of experiments. Each parameter can be controlled and regulated in a stepwise or sinusoid manner, e.g., to mimic natural fluctuations like diurnal changes in oxygen saturation or temperature.

OmniCTRL works with the German WTW instruments for sensing temperatureoxygenpH/CO2, and salinity. The WTW instruments are connected to your PC via USB. For pump and solenoid valve control, you can utilize the functionality of PowerX4. This industrial grade power strip connects to your PC wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired via an LAN/ethernet cable. Finally, Witrox oxygen/temperature instrument owners can benefit from using their Witrox 1 and Witrox 4 in OmniCTRL for unbeaten accuracy and stability of oxygen and temperature data with zero sensor maintenance.

During an experiment, each logged parameter is displayed via real-time graphs for each connected sensing instrument. Each graph can be customized to your liking and exported to Excel or as an image. All logged data also be saved and exported as a .csv file for further analysis in software like Excel.

If you own a previous version of WitroxCTRL (1 or 2) or CapCTRL, you can get OmniCTRL at a reduced price by choosing the OmniCTRL upgrade.

PowerX4 (LAN/Bluetooth power strip-230V/50Hz)
Powerx4 ISO (1)

Use this industrial grade 4-fold power strip for software-driven control and monitoring of equipment via LAN/Ethernet or Bluetooth.

Connect pumps, solenoid valves, or stirrers to one of four independent electrical sockets switching at zero current (ZCS), e.g., for automated respirometry, water quality regulation, shuttle box experiments etc.

Electrical parameters like input voltage and power consumption (in Amps) for each relay, can be monitored and logged in Loligo® software for diagnostics of connected appliances.
