    Wxm Feed Programming

    Hi,

    I have 2 vortech Mp40 QD in the back of the tank.
    When i feed i want to close the return pump ( easy) and make the vortechs in idle mode like the feed they have on their controller.
    Thing is what i still program them without be sure about their schedule so i want something like this :

    If FeedA 000 then slow vortechs
    and continue from the mode they were before feed.

    I read somewhere (maybe from Neptune site ) that you need to put the mode by hand:
    something like :

    Set On
    If FeedA 000 the slow
    Set Reefcrest

    Is this the only way? If yes please help me on the correct code syntax

    Thank you

    Use the wizard for normal routine. Just add

    If FeedA 000 Then Slow

    To the advanced tab of the wizard after naming and setting the profile how you want

    Profiles are done in the folder icon

    You can add it there at the end, but best practice is to click on the gear inside the wizard and add it there in the advanced tab.

    Feed modes only do one rotation unless you do special coding with virtual outlets using defer statements. Also note that your scheduled rotation will not put the pump into that mode, only the manual feed will unless you use virtual outlets.

    So why does it ask in wizard how may rotations?
    Also if you go in advance mode you see this :

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

    Which means one rotation then after 30 seconds another rotation

    I asked 2 times help in this forum and 2 times you helped me

    The third time I will ask help will be next week with the automatic water changes

    That is how many rotations for a scheduled feed. The OSC statement doesnt apply to the feed statement. The code that's generated says run 30 seconds every minute, but turn off when not scheduled to feed. Then it adds the feed statement, which turns on at the start of the feed and turns off at the end of it. Since it only turns on once there, it only rotates once. The only way around this is using virtual outlets.

    Maybe itís my mistake then because I put only 2 minutes feed mode for testing so maybe I increase the time to see what happens

    Length is irrelevant. It could be 2 minutes or 50 and it will do 1 rotation on a feed mode unless you use virtual outlets.

    You add feed statements to the advanced tab (gear icon) in the form below

    If FeedA 000 Then OFF

    Or

    If FeedA 000 Then profilename
