    Hi all,

    Does any one know of a way to let battery backup only kick in after a couple of minutes?

    I want to run my return pumps on battery backup, but also want to run them through a Profilux II Light, to allow me to use the feed button functionality. However, if I put the battery backup between the Profilux and the pumps, the backup will kick in when I press the feed button. I do not want this to happen. The other option is to run the entire Profilux off the battery backup, but then the chiller and heater will potentially pull too much power.

    Does anybody know how I can get the feed button functionality coupled with the battery backup on just the 2 return pumps? I already have the Profilux II Light, but have not got the battery backup yet.
