As many of you may already know, an RF module was in the works for some time and I'm very happy to start taking pre-orders. The lead time is about 4 weeks.

This module is capable of controlling the Vortech pumps with ES wireless drivers.
Vortech pumps will turn to feeding mode automatically when you start the "Feeding Mode" on your Reef Angel.
You can also put them into Night mode automatically to follow your lighting schedule.
All of the modes that the ES driver offers can be emulated.
Additionally, 2 special modes were created:
* Storm
* Custom

These are the wave patterns for the "Storm" mode:

On Custom, the user has full control of each channel (Sync, Anti-Sync and Back-of-Tank). You will be able to create your own patterns and waves.

So to test things out, I have my RA do the following:
12:00 - 12:59 -> Short Pulse Mode at 100% with 1 second pulse duration
15:00 - 17:59 -> Ecosmart Nutrient Transport Mode at 70% with 3 seconds pulse duration
The rest of the time, I just leave it at default.
The default is controlled by internal memory settings, which can be changed remotely with any web browser or using the Status application. I personally use the Status application. It so easy :)
Right now, my internal memory settings are set to have the pumps on Long Pulse Mode at 50% with 10 seconds duration.
It's working beautiful!! :mrgreen:

Not sure if it is worth to piece together from their spare parts.
I think you would end up with a higher bill :(

Hello Roberto,

is possible to program for the RA MP10wES do the work in short pulse (70% 1 second) and in some periods of the day the RA setting to change the short pulse (25% 3 second) and then go into night mode, that during the days?
It is possible that VorTech enter into night mode 30 minutes before turning off the lights?

Tanks brother

Marcelo

Hi Roberto,

Do you have a PDE with examples of the different modes you could share, including setting up a custom mode?

Thanks!
