Gentlemen,
Has anyone run a WP40 (sync) on a dimming channel on the relay box and another as anti-sync on an ATO port?

I did try searching the forum but didn't find anything definitive. Sounds like people are using ATO ports, but not sure if you can blend them with the relay.

I want to continue to use the internal memory instead of code so I can change things on the fly with my phone, laptop, or portal instead of reloading code all the time.

And, can I use either ATO port for the WP40 control? I'm already using ATOLow for my dimmable moonlight.

My current config is:
Relay Daylight Channel = Dimmer for Apollo LEDs, both (Daylight and Actinic) LED channels on one.
Relay Actinic Channel = WP40 DCPump control
ATOLow = Dimmable Moonlight
ATOHigh = open

Maybe there's a better way of arranging things for a second DCPump control that I haven't thought of?

Just wanted to ask the group to make sure I'm on the right path before I ordered the special ATO version Jebao cord.

Thanks in advance!

You can use either port and no issue mixing.

If you use the ATO port make sure you modify the cable.
