    I have recently bought a Profilux 3 and was wondering if anyone could give me some help here. The manual is not that great and the translation is even worse!

    I have a 140l Buyo (I know - this is total overkill!)

    At this stage, I am using it only to run 3 pumps - the main circulation pump and two Seio props. All three are plugged directly into the 220V extender bar and can only be switched on or off.

    The main cirulation pump I want to run all the time, but the two props I want to switch off at night. I also want all three to switch off for 5 minutes for feeding.

    I have the circulation pump setup as a 'filter'. The chap at Profilux tells me that the two Seios should set up as either 'timer' or 'current pump'. I set them up as 'timer', as I could see no way of switching them on and off automatically as 'current pump'.

    With this configuration, I can only get the 'filter' to switch off for FP. The two 'timer' pumps don't respond to the FP.

    The other thing that I don't understand, is that as soon as I set a timer up (I set timer one to 08h00 to 21h00 to control the two 'timer' pumps), the FP symbol continually flashes, which makes me think that the unit believes that it is permanently in FP mode. When I press 'esc', the 'filter' no longer responds to FP, whereas before I set the timer, it did.

    I have flashed the Profilux to V501c and the desktop software is V5011.

    I am obviously missing something here and would really appreciate help.

    Thanks

    Hi Clive what the timer is more for is feeding & dosing which means when the timer kicks in it sets to feeding pause mode.

    so this would not give you the results you want

    Clive this is how i would do it

    go into Extra / Pumps

    min & max power = 100% as you don't have controllable pumps - night = 0% set your night time mode.

    Next select socket & select circulation pump 1* if you configured 1.

    that should work

    give me a shout if you still get stuck

    It's the profilux software which should work with the Light unit if it's got a serial interface
