I'm also interested on seeing how you are powering the motors. Did you use a mosfet transistor?

No I use a NPN transistor TIP-122

Here is the wiring I did

For control motor speed with PWM you need:

1x NPN transistor TIP-122
1x Capacitor 1uf
1x Diode
1x Resistor 1k ohm

And the diagram

For make your own USB cable for communication RA/Uno
You need:

1x Regular USB cable and strip it
2x Resistor 1.5k ohm

And the diagram

Hi guys, I did some experiment for you. And the good news, you can use the dimming ports of Reef Angel to control the motor speed. You do not need an Arduino Uno. The Reef Angel and pwm expansion module is ready for this use.

Here the diagram

And the video

I think if would be great for an update of RA dosing pump ;)

There you go roberto! Wire that into the circuit for of the ra dosing pump add a switch for controlled or independent mode and done deal!!!

I need your help, I'm not very good with the RA code.

I would like to know if it's possible to add to the menu PWM port and change the name in the menu?
Ex: instead of Ch 0, Ch 1, Ch 2 and Ch 3
I would like Alk, Ca, Mg and Carb and to modify the duration and %
Ex: Alk 15sec at 100% or Ca 20sec at 60%

Thank you in advance
Eric

I'm assuming you are talking about changing the main screen, right?

Yeah and change the value of PWM expansion, on ch0, ch1, ch2, ch3 directly on PDE.
