Apex program for doser
« on: November 29, 2018, 17:31:44 »
I just got a BRS Doser and want to program it to come on for 4 minutes at the top of each hour from 8am-8pm. In case of power outage, I want it to remain off unless itís within that timeframe. Can someone screen shot their Fusion program for me or type the code please?? Thanks in advance!

Disregard. I figured it out.

Are you not using Apex DOS any longer? Or is this for second tank?

Brian, after lowering my light levels, the PO4 has been going thru the roof. I tried Rowaphos and it damaged my Montis. Then tried carbon dosing and most of the SPS didnít like that either so I went Jeffís route and started dosing Lanthanum Chloride. So Iím still using the DOS for alk/calc and got the BRS Doser for the lanthanum. Itís only been a few days but I got the PO4 down to .13. Trying to take it slow and it doesnít seem to be harming anything.

This is a handy code generator.   It works on volume you want to add, versus just time.

Here is the code generated

Fallback OFF
OSC 000:00/004:00/056:00 Then ON
If Time 20:00 to 07:59 Then OFF

You canít beat the DOS if youíre using Fusion. The extra money is worth the convenience. I love it. I just couldnít justify the money for another one at this time. Iím still contemplating emptying the 75 and starting over.
