The reason they aren't alternating is because you need 0 15 15 and 15 15 0. Right now you have 15 15 15 which is the problem.
You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.

but my thought process is as such - Left is 0 delay, 15 on, 15 off, right is 15 delay (which is while left is on), left shuts off for 15, so right is now on for 15, then when right shuts off for 15, left turns back on.
Are you saying the delay happens every time? so Right has a total trip of 45 while left is only 30? I thought the delay only happened one time initially and that was it?
It's not delay, on, off.
It's initial OFF time, ON time, second OFF time.
The first value is an OFF offset. The sum of the 3 is the period. The sum of the two Offs is the total off time. The 2nd value is the total on time.

Interesting. I always thought the first initial off time was a single occurrence, then the on/off time took over after that. Thanks for explaining. Any idea how the synchronize tick box works? My understanding is that if sync is ticked on ID2, it syncs with ID1, ID3 would sync with ID4 if 4 sync is checked, etc.
Hello, sorry I'm late the the game here. I followed CoralVue's directions as described here for running dual gyre on a y-cable:https://blog.coralvue.com/icecap-gyr...ync-anti-sync/
Everything seems to be working fine, except - my left gyre appears to be going in reverse. I double checked the propeller direction and they are correct. Any ideas? I'm using a y-cable.
is it upside down?
Don't think so because I had previously been running it using the OCE controller.
OK, just wanted to ask. Did you try to switch the cables from the icecap to the apex and see if the problem follows the cable? Need to rule out your programming.
Thanks. I do think that changes the affect to the other pump. However, I don't know if that means somethings wrong with the cable, or just the code with that variable speed port.
Russ if you see this: I am having the thought that if the OSC command was a 10 min on / off oscillation that the above program would ramp up the left pump and the right down for example over a period of 3 min and then hold at the max left intensity/min right intensity until the OSC kicked in the other setting and then it would ramp down over 3 min while the right ramped up over 3 min and hold with the left at min, right at max until the 10m min runs out and repeat.
Would you concur?
Thanks,
Mark
Im confused...i have 2 XF250 pumps and i bought 2 icecap interface boxes. I also bought 2 of the alternating gyre cables. Did i only need one cable to run 2 pumps?
Hey guys,
Looking for some help if possible. I have two XF-280 gyres and I was told by Maxspect that I am unable to run or control them on my APEX. Does anyone know if this is true? Or does anyone have the XF-280 they have programmed to work on their APEX?
Thanks!
130, 230, 150, 250, 1k and 3k have interface modules. 280 do not, but icecaps will probably make one eventually.

This is very close to what I want as well.
But I would like to have both pumps at 100% mid cycle instead of 50% and 50%.
I don't know if you could use defer to delay the start of the next ramp to accomplish that or not...
If you run the osc VO on a longer cycle than the ramp time as marc suggests here with an offset it seems like it should be possible.
@RussM or @zombie, is this possible?
Thanks zombie. I got that piece from the previous posts. What I'm after is hard to convey in writing with out pictures.
Someone else on the first or second page talked about wanting opposing pumps to be at 100% (or ramp max) with one pump ramping down to maximize the turbulence in between the pumps.
I've drawn pictures and played with this until I think I have a solution that is pretty close to what I actually wanted.
Since I thought other people would be interested as well as maybe getting some good suggestions, I decided to post.
The goal was to have the pumps momentarily both at 100% (or ramp max) and then one ramping down and then switch pumps and repeat.
I had problems getting both pumps to 100% until I realized that they have to be staggered. That's where the osc time being greater than the ramp time comes in.
The ramp up is not a mirror of ramp down because of the staggering which is not what I originally envisioned but I think it works.
I don't know if it can be done in a more simple fashion or not but below is what I ended up with.
Will it do what I want?
Any better or simpler way of doing this?
[GyreOsc]
OSC 000:00/001:30/001:30 Then ON
[GyreDelayRT]
Set OFF
If Output GyreOsc = ON Then ON
Defer 001:00 Then ON
Defer 000:30 Then OFF
[GyreDelayLF]
Set OFF
If Output GyreDelayRT = ON Then ON
Defer 001:00 Then ON
Defer 001:00 Then OFF
Min Time 001:00 Then ON
[GyreUp]
Type: Ramp
Ramp time: 2
Start Intensity: 0
End Intensity: 100
[GyreDown]
Type: Ramp
Ramp time: 2
Start Intensity: 100
End Intensity: 0
[RTPump]
Set GyreUp
If Output GyreDelayRT = ON Then GyreDown
[LTPump]
Set GyreUp
If Output GyreDelayLF = ON Then GyreDown
There is a much simpler way. Say you want 2 min ramp up, 2 minutes hold, 2 minutes ramp down, and 2 minutes hold and you want the other one offset by one minute
LeftOSC
OSC 000:00/004:00/004:00 Then ON
Right OSC
OSC 001:00/004:00/003:00 Then ON
LeftGyre
Set RampUp
If Output LeftOSC = ON Then RampDn
RightGyre
Set RampUp
If Output RightOSC = ON Then RampDn
