Just to confirm, your ATO is disabled from 10pm to noon, right?
What time did you perform your test?

I did FINALLY figure out how to make the ATO work. However, now I cannot get my time out to work. Here is my updated code (sorry for all the notes, and the code that is //-ed out above the ATO coding is what I had before, kept it to copy it). I am wondering if the time out needs to be in the custom code in the void loop? Not sure.

Code: Select all
#include <ReefAngel_Features.h>
#include <Globals.h>
#include <RA_Wifi.h>
#include <Wire.h>
#include <OneWire.h>
#include <Time.h>
#include <DS1307RTC.h>
#include <InternalEEPROM.h>
#include <RA_NokiaLCD.h>
#include <RA_ATO.h>
#include <RA_Joystick.h>
#include <LED.h>
#include <RA_TempSensor.h>
#include <Relay.h>
#include <RA_PWM.h>
#include <Timer.h>
#include <Memory.h>
#include <InternalEEPROM.h>
#include <RA_Colors.h>
#include <RA_CustomColors.h>
#include <Salinity.h>
#include <RF.h>
#include <IO.h>
#include <ORP.h>
#include <AI.h>
#include <PH.h>
#include <WaterLevel.h>
#include <ReefAngel.h>

////// Place global variable code below here


////// Place global variable code above here


void setup()
{
  // This must be the first line
  ReefAngel.Init();  //Initialize controller
  // Ports toggled in Feeding Mode
  ReefAngel.FeedingModePorts = Port3Bit | Port5Bit | Port6Bit | Port8Bit;
  // Ports toggled in Water Change Mode
  ReefAngel.WaterChangePorts = Port3Bit | Port5Bit | Port6Bit | Port7Bit | Port8Bit;
  // Ports toggled when Lights On / Off menu entry selected
  ReefAngel.LightsOnPorts = Port4Bit;
  // Ports turned off when Overheat temperature exceeded
  ReefAngel.OverheatShutoffPorts = Port7Bit;
  // Use T1 probe as temperature and overheat functions
  ReefAngel.TempProbe = T1_PROBE;
  ReefAngel.OverheatProbe = T1_PROBE;
  // Set the Overheat temperature setting

  // Ports that are always on

  ReefAngel.Relay.On( Port8 );
  ReefAngel.Relay.On( Port5 );

  ////// Place your custom code below here
 
  // prevent auto top off from 2200 to 1200
  //if (hour()>12 && hour()<22)
  //ReefAngel.SingleATO( false,Port2,600,0 );
  //else
  //ReefAngel.Relay.Off( Port2 );

  if (hour()>12 && hour()<22)
  ReefAngel.SingleATOLow( Port2 );
  else
  ReefAngel.Relay.Off( Port2 );
 
  // Skimmer delay after feed or wc, 30 minutes

Code looks ok, except for this line:

Code: Select all
    if (hour()>12 && hour()<22)


Technically, it will only run from 1 PM to 9 PM.

Run the controller test again. If you can't get it to change state, then there's an issue with the topoff unit. Since you've replaced the switch, I'd suspect the cable. Check the pins on the cable and make sure they're seated properly. If you have a voltmeter you might check continuity in the wires.

That is supposed to be there. My tank is near my birds and they don't get woken up till noon/1pm and I don't want the top off pump bothering them while they are sleeping.

I will check the cable, thanks so much, Colin!

Make sure you have the correct settings in internal memory

I have an Avast ATO. If the ATO runs then the issue regarding timeout is not the ATO, most likely code related.

My code for the Avast uses internal memory and is every simple:
Code: Select all
ReefAngel.SingleATOLow( Port1)


I control the timeout from the portal.

OK, so when I replied, I somehow missed all of page 2, and missed that you'd fixed it and moved on to another problem. :oops:

So now, it won't time out? Like Roberto said, check the internal memory setting. You can do that from the Portal.

It does time out, the problem is I thought I set the time out for 15 minutes, it times out in 5 min or less

Check in the portal under internal memory settings. You have 15 minutes specified in your code but the last iteration uses memory which we cant see how yours is set.

I was able to get into the internal memory settings through the portal, currently trying to get it to save.

I don't understand what in my code makes it use the internal memory, I would prefer to keep everything in the code and not use the portal.
