    Question Continuous DOS Profile

    Objective
    To run DOS Profiles dependant on logic

    Requirements
    Each profile needs to be a continuous loop, not just run for the "Dose Count" but continue at determined dose rate indefinitely

    Proposed method
    The max allowable Dose Count = 255 therefore 240 Doses would give me the greatest spread over 24 hours (rounded for simplicity)

    Dose Count = 240
    Dose Interval = 360 // 24 hours / Dose Count
    Per Dose Amount = determine dose volume per 6 minutes // 360 Dose Interval is 6 minutes
    Dose Rate > 2 x Per Dose Amount (mL/min) // to comply with pump duty cycle

    Questions
    Will the profile restart Dose count at midnight? or will I need to create a reset?
    Is there a better/simpler method?

    The profile will not restart at midnight without a reset.
    To add a reset simply add a TIME defined OFF statement like IF TIME 23:59 TO 00:00 THEN OFF.
    The DOS code would then be:
    SET "Profile Name"
    IF TIME 23:59 TO 00:00 THEN OFF
    The profile would now run in a continous 24h loop.
    You could also achieve the same result with and OSC statement.

    Just use the wizard.

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.

    Thanks Simon

    zombie, I use the wizard now, and have various VOutlets that cause OFF or OSC conditions to create reduced dosage rates, and other VOs that trigger DOS profiles for extra doses.. And it works fine.
    But its messy, particularly when editing, calling various profiles maybe cleaner and less prone to user error when making changes to core dose rates.

    I do the same, but I keep my basic "typical" dosage in the wizard for simplicity there since that needs the most adjustment and do overrides in the advanced tab.
