You should be able to use the DCPump modes.
The Kessil cable in the webstore should be able to be used with the Icecap module too :)

How long is the Kessil cable? My RA is in the basement so it needs to be a decent length.

Won't reach.
It's about 6ft.
You better off just splicing your own cable. You can build one from scratch or get an stereo audio cable at the local store than is long enough.

He way I wrote the function I added 10 to the speed for reverse and forward uses the values you provide.

What do all three of these numbers mean?

Code: Select all

40 speed, 35-45 during 1/4 moons and 25-55 during new and full moon. It might be

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm still confused on how you got 35-45 and 25-55? I can't seem to find the correlation between those numbers and the 40, 10 and 30 ones.

40 is the speed for the tide. As it goes from high tide to low tide its going to start at a range of 10 so 35-45 between the high tide and low tide speed. As the month progresses the range will increase to 3 which is 25-55.

Ok, I understand now. I don't have the icecap module yet but I wanted to upload the code so it was ready when I did get it. I noticed that both the daylight and actnitic values didn't change when I uploaded the new code. Should they? I did notice that where it says dc pump in the portal, that it shows that the mode is constant, speed is 50% and duration is 50.

You added the function but you have to call it. Same with the tide you set. We have to tie them together now.

You need to add the following now to set your dimming channels.

I need to be on the computer to give you the right code. I also made some mistakes that I need to fix in the setMaspect function.

I bought a stereo audio cable for forward and reverse. How many wires should be in it? I cut the end off and there are three, a red, blue and white.

One should be ground and the other two would be for your two signals. If you are wiring to the dimming leads you'll share the ground.

Ok, this should do it. I've set the min speed to 1/2 the Tidal speed and used the Tidal speed as the max speed. As discussed the tidal speed will vary +/- depending on the range you gave which means 55 (+/-5 during quarter moons and half moon, versus +/-15 during newmoon and full moon) It will also vary throughout the day based on the wavelength you have set.. which is currently 72 minutes... tide.SetWaveLength(12+SECS_PER_HOUR); The default is 12 hours which would be 12*SECS_PER_HOUR. Anyway below is the code that will set the Actinic/Daylight to the value of the the setMaxspect function using the tide class as an input. I also included the change I made in your RO/Valve post

I know this is an old thread. But I wanted to check before moving forward. Icecap just came out with their gyre pump as a license off maxspect. If i get their gyre pump and the ice cap module will this work with the DC pump codes? i current have two jeabo but would like to swap out to two opposing gyres. I have the jebaos set up to randomly select the wave pattern for the day. would this still be relevant for the gyre control? along with feed mode?
