The MindStream Monitor represents a significant advance in monitoring reef tank chemistry over traditional test methods and auto titration equipment.

Ease of Use

  • Hands off, no nonsense, all in one compact device
  • No noise, liquid reagents, pumps, tubes, or toxic liquid waste

Parameters Measured

10 water parameters

Carbonate Alkalinity*, Calcium, Magnesium,
Salinity, Temperature, pH**, Oxygen,
Carbon Dioxide, Ammonia***, Potassium

Measurement Frequency

Nearly continuous
  • Ten parameters, every 15 minutes
  • 960 measurements/day total
  • 1/8 cent/measurement

Installation

  • Connect monitor to WiFi/cloud, place in tank or sump
  • Minimal wait time for initial use
  • No tubing installation, no user calibration, no large footprint requirement

Consumables & Maintenance

  • Replace small sensor disc shipped monthly with subscription
  • No liquid reagents
  • No maintenance, no tubing replacement

Tank Water & Liquid Waste

  • Located in the tank or sump
  • Consumes no tank water
  • Generates no toxic liquid waste

Calibration

  • Monitors & discs are individually factory calibrated and require no user calibration

Precision

  • Carbonate Alkalinity*: +/- 0.1 dKH
  • Calcium: +/- 4 ppm
  • Magnesium: +/- 15 ppm

Controller Integration

  • SAI will offer automated doser control at some point in the future
  • Wireless controller capability is already built-in with the latest IoT protocols
  • SAI is developing partnerships with key aquarium equipment providers for controller integration

* The MindStream Monitor measures Carbonate Alkalinity, which is the form of alkalinity necessary to promote vibrant coral growth. Other methods measure total alkalinity, which includes carbonate, borate, and other ions and therefore are not a true representation of the amount of carbonates available for coral growth.

** The MindStream Monitor provides an analytically-derived pH Probe Equivalent graph by default. This compares to results from consumer-grade, potentiometric pH probes commonly used in saltwater aquariums. Behind the scenes, the MindStream Monitor tracks Total pH using an optical system that removes saltwater interference. MindStream Monitor settings may be changed to display Total pH, a measure preferred by oceanographers and chemists.”

*** The MindStream Monitor provides a more effective indication of ammonia toxicity by measuring ammonia in its most toxic gaseous form. Many test kits report the less toxic ammonium ion concentration.

“It's pure purpose. A constant window to data within a given system is priceless and ... will change the way we operate as an aquarium service company going forward and into the future!” — Myk Gillespie
“It will let me tweak my dosing regimen and really get it tuned in.” — Larry Leszczynski
“I have a ball valve that feeds my frag tank. I turned it off and forgot about it until I checked my app. At that time, it saved me murdering the 10 fish in it. When I saw the O2 levels, I acted quickly. Thanks SAI!” — Ryan Reeves
“[The MindStream Monitor offers] the ability to see changes in the water chemistry over time without having to use test kits.” — Jason Copp

groundbreaking technology
  • Advanced fluorescence and colorimetric sensor technology adapted from the medical field.
  • Ultra-sensitive optical measurement sensors for measuring the fluorescence response of the sensor indicator dyes.
  • Custom optical filtering that enables higher accuracy and resolution than test kits and liquid reagents in measuring essential water parameters.
  • Space age plastics that virtually eliminate moisture penetration and prolong the useful life of the monitor in sea water, and reduce organic matter buildup on surfaces.
  • RFID tags on the MindStream sensor discs for unique identification and automatic download of calibration data.
  • Inductive power technology that enables power to be transmitted through aquarium glass up to ¾" thick and eliminates wires in your tank.
  • Highly sophisticated multipoint monitor and disc calibration systems for factory-based calibration.
  • The latest IoT radio frequency chip set and mesh networking protocols (including Bluetooth and Zigbee) for future enablement of controller capability of third party dosing and other equipment.
