Hi guys!

Can you help me setup my new reef Angel star?
I used the manual to set it up but, when I try to upload it. I encounter error uploading 400.

P.S.

I was able to fix this, the wizard doesn't work on safari. We're able to fix it using chrome

Just ordered my Star to replace my Plus.

Does the new controller allows me to plug an expansion relay box into it without the old expansion hub?

Was going to buy the hub to convert my old Plus relay box into an expansion but if its only a $70 difference to get an expansion box, I can sell my old Plus unit to cover the difference.

You would need the old relay expansion hub to connect the an old relay box to the new Star.

Hey guys, it's been a long time!

Any change this controller can support 6 Temp Probes? Just logged in to see what was going on. A lot has gone on since I last logged in. 600gal display, dedicated filtration and prop room... Looking to control a breeding system that is composed of 6 individual tanks.

Thanks,
Mark

If you use the webwizard, simply add this to setup():
Code: Select all
ReefAngel.AddExtraTempProbes();

Boy, you go away for a little while and the whole world changes!!!
I moved up to Orlando, sold my 55 gallon and have not been able to set up my 90 gallon yet because I don't have the money to pull up the carpeting and put down tile or waterproof laminate yet.

How much of my old equipment will work with the RA*?
This is what I remember I have.
RA +
Relay(original included)'
PH Probe
Standard ATO High and Low
Expansion Hub
Dimming Expansion
RANet and Relay
Water Level Expansion
Multi Water Level Expansion
Salinity Expansion
ATO Pump
WiFi module
Bluetooth module
3 Jebao Cables (WP-25, WP-40, DC-12000pump)
3 Temp Sensors
Dimmable Lunar Hub & 2 Moonlights

What is usable with the RA* and what is useless?
How has the code changed?
I was not good with coding, to begin with and have probably forgotten most of what I knew.
Can I continue to use what I have already?
Also, will there be a possibility of just getting the RA* head unit?


It can be seen here...

I hope to have the flooring in the room by Christmas and the tank set up and running by the beginning of the year.

Thanks;

Steve

You should be able to use pretty much everything except for the head unit and the wifi attachment.

Thanks Roberto;

So I would need the Reef Angel Star Controller and the Cloud Wifi Attachment.
Do you have a rough idea when the Cloud attachment will be available?

Does the Cloud unit need to be used?
I work from home now and am pretty much here all the time to monitor the tank.

I thought I read that the Cloud WiFi is needed to use the older expansion units.
Maybe I was wrong.

The Start controller comes with ethernet port, so you are all set for cloud connection.
The cloud wifi attachment is only meant to be used on the RA+.
The RA* has an expansion port too, so you can plug any expansion module to it the same way as you had on the RA+.
