First I'm very happy with RA+, it has a great job with my 100g tank for a year.
I just change WP40 from PWM port to ATO port. (added a dimming-able LED), every thing works fine(high low port working in PWM), but need some programming support.
previous i can check WP40 working level with ReefAngel.PWM.GetDaylightValue() function. but i can't find one for ATO port (High Low).
is there any similar function can check ATO port working condition? thanks :D

I don't think there is a good way to do it in the libraries as using the ATO ports for output isn't really built in.
What I would do is store the output of your wave maker commands in a variable so you can reference. can you post the code?

Could you use analogRead(lowATOPin) ?

Or no, because it's set to output?

it seems doesn't work. the value flash from 45X~57X. in 8pm.

Yeah, the more I think about it, I realize that would never work.

The best thing to do is like Lee suggested and just put whatever value you're setting it to in a variable. Looking back, that's what I did when I was using an ATO port for a Jaebo pump.

Its what the libraries are doing for the daylight/actinic port anyway, they dont read the port to get it, just returns the value you set.

understand. highly suggest to put these libraries in next gen of RA+. :D :D
