    Simple, alternating, Gyre xf250s.

    Hello,

    I need a review of why I cannot get my 2 gyre xf250 to simply alternate:

    Gyre 1 - ON for 90 seconds (ramp up from 85-100%), then off for 90 seconds

    Gyre 2 - OFF for 90 seconds, then ON for 90(same ramp)

    Not gonna work the way you have it. You need to do this, where RampUp is a 1 min ramp from 85 to 100

    GyreTime
    OSC 000:00/001:30/001:30 Then ON

    Left
    Set OFF
    If Output GyreTime = ON Then RampUp

    Right
    Set OFF
    If Output GyreTime = OFF Then RampUp

    Zombie,

    So I created a profile for RampUp as instructed.

    Is Gyretime the name of just one of the outlets (LeftGyre)?

    No. It's a virtual outlet.

    I'm just gonna say it and I'm gonna get kicked out of the circle of trust lol, but I just prefer to use the Gyre controller. It is simpler and I never found the Icecap module to be that reliable. It is really cheaply built and overpriced IMO. Also, I found that all the programming I had to do with the Apex to get it to do what I wanted it was just simpler to do with the Gyre controller.

    Trust me, from my posts you can see I'm certainly an Apex fan, but until the interface and maybe a better wizard is created like it is for the WAV's and MP40's, I just feel the Gyre controller is simpler. I do realize that you lose some of the automation with feed modes etc, but I generally leave them on when I feed and haven't found a lot of reason to turn them off unless I do a WC and that's only once per week.

    Just my 2 cents..

    I just installed a pair of XF250s on my tank this week and have been wondering if it was worth pulling the trigger on the IC modules. There is a rumor that Maxspect and Neptune are working on integrating the controller and Apex via the ICV6 though, which would only cost an extra $50 to get onboard with. Fingers crossed.

    I have the icecap modules, that would be nice if that rumor came true

    Ok. Creates a virtual outlet called "Gyretime" and entered in the advance programming:OSC 000:00/001:30/001:30 Then ON

    I then changed the gyre 1 and 2 outlet as you stated.

    Now I guess I just add the tile to my homepage and keep it on auto going forward? Does using a VO impact other feed commands etc. for the outlets?

    You can hide the tile. Just make sure it's in AUTO. It's just an intermediary step.

    Zombie,

    What coding can I add, to have this alternating happen between 8am-8pm only. Then have a similar program for night hours, but with lower intensities ranging btw 50%-60%?

    You would need 4 VOs like this


    LGyreDay
    OSC 000:00/001:30/001:30 Then ON
    If Time 20:00 to 07:59 Then OFF

    LGyreNight
    OSC 000:00/001:30/001:30 Then ON
    If Time 08:00 to 19:59 Then OFF

    RGyreDay
    OSC 001:30/001:30/000:00 Then ON
    If Time 20:00 to 07:59 Then OFF

    RGyreNight
    OSC 001:30/001:30/000:00 Then ON
    If Time 08:00 to 19:59 Then OFF

    Left
    Set OFF
    If Output LGyreDay = ON Then RampUpD
    If Output LGyreNight = ON Then RampUpN


    Right
    Set OFF
    If Output RGyreDay = ON Then RampUpD
    If Output RGyreNight = ON Then RampUpN

    Zombie,

    So after a few days, I've concluded that I like this pattern but no longer want the "off" side to be at 0%.

    Suppose I want the "off" side to now ramp from 30%-50%?
