Try changing the temperature to something else. I was testing your code and set it to 83 through the Client. Then with my hands I held the probe to increase the temperature and the ports went off, indicating that it was working as intended.
I only had that one probe in my tests, though... Not that it should influence the results.

I just set the temp to 95 from the client and cleared the over heat warning. Lights came on for a couple seconds, and now are still masked off. Strange...

  {
    ReefAngel.PWM.SetActinic(0);
    ReefAngel.PWM.SetDaylight(0);
  }

The reason they were on was probably because you forgot to turn them off when not within the time schedule you had.



I actually had this code setup previously and I think it was working. However, at the same time the controller was locking up on me every couple of hours. I removed the above loop and it resolved the lock ups. It could have been something else, but I attributed it to the loop.

Let's see what happens this time.

What happens if you use joystick and navigate to clear overheat?

The lights and heaters go unmasked, the lights come on for about 10 seconds, then go off again, and in the client I see that they are masked off.

Beats me, man...
I got the same code and this behavior doesn't happen.
Can you use the update utility to download the latest code??

What happens if you remove the overheat line all together and re-upload?

Code: Select all
ReefAngel.OverheatShutoffPorts = B11000110;

I'm going to comment it out for now, with the alerting setup now, I can manually turn off stuff if I notice it gets hot.

For now I just want to stabilize the controller, so I'll figure this one out later.
