Quick Overview

Tunze Wavebox 6212


TUNZE® Wavebox 6212 is a patented wave generator for aquariums from 200 to 1.200 litres (52 to 317 US gal.). It is especially suitable for reef biotopes as it generates an oscillating current. The current corresponds exactly to the wave structure and water movement in reef top zones. The Wavebox applies this oscillating principle through Wave Controller 6091, which uses the intrinsic resonance of the tank. With a minimal use of power it generates tremendous water movement. The water is in movement in all areas of the aquarium, even the smallest section behind a decoration benefits from the wash. Example: On account of the wash of the waves, the maximum water level may rise 2 cm (.78 in.) and more in aquariums with a length of 1.5 metres (1,5m.) The wave height can be adjusted electronically.

Supplements existing circulation pumps.
FOR LARGER TANKS, an additional Wavebox extension (without Wave Controller) can be used to extend the system.
POWER CONSUMPTION in one cycle of 5W to 60W; about 30W on average.
DELIVERY CONDITION: Completely ready for mounting with holding device for vertical panes, Wavecontroller and photo-electric cell. For the attachment on aquariums with glass covers, we recommend two magnetic holders 6080.50 or 6200.50.

How does the Wavebox operate ?

The pump in the Wavebox presses the water to the left-hand side of the tank causing all polyps in every position in the aquarium to move to the left.

The pump is stopped; the wavebox fills up; and the entire water in the aquarium returns to the right-hand side. All polyps move to the right.

Oscillating current with near-nature wave movement and circulation.

De-sedimentation of the entire aquarium habitat.

Wave generation at low power consumption, high efficiency and low motor heat.

Safety extra-low voltage, blocking and run-dry protection, alert sound emitter.
