Is it odd that both of my float switch ports run my wp40?

Anybody?

I don't want to kill the pump if it's only supposed to be ran on a particular float switch port.

That's what I thought. I cannot tell a difference between the two ports. Is the low port the one on the right? Both seem to run the wp40 the same. I'll post my code. Maybe I have it in the wrong place.

I have 2 wp25's that I have in my analog dimming channels. I ran the wizard to set them up, and now I am confused. I wanted to set them Reef Crest. First I set them at 90% one sync, the other antisync. I would notice one would at times be off. Then I put them at 90% both sync and at times they would both stop. Now I have them both at 90% antisync. So far I have not seen them stop, but not seeing that much of a variance in speeds. Are there adjustments? I'm used to Else modes where I could hear major speed changes. The code samples on the front page don't look like the ones that the wizard generated.

Sorry for all the noob ?'s

I believe this happens when the dimming % drops below 30% on the wp25's.

My guess is you are using the DCPump class..

You could try this instead and set it so your offset does not drop your wave speed below 30%.. 55-25=30
Code: Select all
ReefAngel.PWM.SetDaylight( ReefCrestMode(55,25,true); // (byte waveSpeed, byte waveOffset, boolean PulseSync)

Make sure to set the proper channel whether it is Daylight Actinic or if you are using an expansion etc...

I wonder what would happen if you set them to 80% instead of 90%.
ReefCrest has a +/- 20% variance. What I'm thinking is if there is any problems when the % goes above 100%.

That makes sense. I'm used to else mode, so I was thinking 90% was max speed.

What is the duration setting, and can I adjust it?
