Finally getting around to utilise my ReefAngel.

Got it setup to do my ATO, run the lights, measure PH and salinity (which it will do correctly once my new probes arrive).

Now I want to connect one Tunze controllable pump to it. (I have the cable).

How do I go about doing this?
I think I am supposed to use one of the analog dimming ports, but how do I program to control it.
So question 1 - how do I connect it (dummy's guide)
and question 2 - how do I program my Reef Angel to get random flow going. (example will help!)


Also going the link up n Jeboa wavemaker and Jebao battery backup hopefully next week.

Thanks!

I am currently running my Jebao WP40 pumps on the reef angel with all vortech modes and I also set the reef angel to change modes automatically at different times of the day....

Works awesome!!

If you going to run more than two pumps on the reef angel then you will have to get an expansion module as the powerbox only runs two pumps at a time.

Then buy the tunze cable aswell as the jebao cables.

Ive ran jebao pumps on both analog and PWM without any issues.

You will then have to code the flow patterns.

the reef angel forum is a perfect place to learn how...

Managed to get it sorted.

Key was to add the DC pump addon on the ReefAngel wizard.

Connect the plug at the actinic or daylight on the ReefAngel and the other end where the tunze controller would have plugged into the pump.

Thanks Ridwaan - waiting for my Jebao cable and battery backup to arrive then will connect it also.
Only running one big Tunze (6105) and Jebao RW-15 for now. Predator tank - so that should be fine.

May be calling on your expertise again soon!
