I currently dose 2-part. Which means I dose 3 with Mg. I also dose vinegar. I have four RA dosing pumps, but I would love to control all four from the portal.

Can you post your code?

It should be as simple as copying the code for the other dosing pumps and then changing what port on the relay it turns on and how long it is on for.

Give me the setting of the pump you want to add and your code and I'll see if I can come up with something.
IE What port and duration, also is it offset from any of the other dosing pumps.

Again I'm not exactly sure what your problem is, but you can create 4 dosing schedules using the Wizard.

I just threw this together not knowing any of your specs.

Code: Select all
    ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat( Port1,0,60,5 );
    ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat( Port2,10,70,0 );
    ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat( Port3,0,480,10 );
    ReefAngel.DosingPumpRepeat( Port4,0,60,10 );

I want to be able to use the portal to change the parameters of 4 pumps vs 3. My 4 pumps work.

I see what you are saying now.
That is something that I believe is written into the portal (the 3 pumps only).
I'm not sure if there is a way around that.
Maybe Roberto can chime in.

I think 3 is reasonable amount for most people. You could use custom memory locations to store the settings. The issue is adding a fourth in my opinion is the next guy will ask for 5 and the a zeo guy comes in and wants 6 or 7...

What I would really like to see added is a section in the portal for custom memory locations. You could add and give it a name and size (byte/int) and then have a section just for your own settings. This way if you wanted 4 or 20 you'd be able to without having everyone needing to reserve all those memory locations...they arent unlimited...
