    Chiller programming - alarm when not working

    Hi,
    Is there a way/ programming code to send an alert when the chiller is not working in the last 2 hours? I have a regular chiller (not apex ready) connected to the energy bar on outlet1 and want to make sure is always. Using the energy consumption is not possible because when the chiller is on but not on a cooling state the energy consumption shows 0.
    Thanks for helping me

    You could use something similar to code I used previously for my ATO to warn me if it didn’t operate frequently enough. Ignore the comments etc, they are just in my master codebase for convenience.

    # VO to alert if the ATO appears to have to have stopped filling the sump
    #
    Set OFF
    If Outlet ATOPump = OFF Then ON
    Defer 600:00 Then ON
    If Outlet ATOPump = ON then OFF

    Hi Tastee, thanks for replying.
    I just want to alert when the chiller outlet hasent been turned on within 2 hours. Is this is the code ? I need to create a virtual outlet ? Can you explain a little bit more . Thanks in advance.

    Tastee the outlet is turned on always , so I need to check if the watts on that outlet didn’t increase within 2 hours, that means the chiller hasent turned on within 2 hours and this needs to be alerted. Is this is the code for that? Thanks in advance

    Hi, my code won’t do what you want and I am not familiar with the options to check current draw. I’ll do some digging and post again later if I can assist.
