Question Tunze 6040's controller.

Hi, I have a DC powered Tunze 6055 without the original controller, is it possible to connect to my existing 6040's controller with a coaxial cable, so that I can control the 2 power heads with the controller?

Thanks.

Jack

Technically, no, in the sense that it is not intended to do this and is not recommended. For an older pump the correct solution is to add a 7090 controller and connect the two together to network them. With that said, a couple people have reported it works, but it seems hit or miss and is not something I would endorse doing.
