Hey all,

I am setting up a new tank with an AQ controller and the main controller sees the 2nd power bar but will not control it. It (the powerbar) is set on auto. I have unplugged and reset the unti with all accessories unplugged and it still happens. I cannot turn off the power bar plugs individually or by turning them all off?

Any suggestions?

Hi Henry Bowman,

how many Power Unit do you have and how many Power Unit does the controller recognize?

I have 2 power bars and the controller sees both but will not turn off the plugs individually or all at once under manual control?

Henry Bowman, you can manually control une Power Bar per time, in the menu you have to choose the PowerBar 1 or 2 and then you can modify the status.

Do you see the 2 Power Bars on the menu?

Yes, I see both power bars in the menu on the controller. Power bar 1 is fully functional, #2 comes up just like #1. When I go through the same process to turn off anything on #2 the icons come up on the main controller but the plugs do not respond to the commands.

I talked with Ron @ AO today and he had me do a reset with nothing connected. I just did this, everything came back online but the problem persists.

I emailed Ron, who was very responsive and concerned when I talked with him on the phone today. I will follow up with a phone call to him tomorrow to see if there is anything else I can do. I am still under warranty and Ron said that he'd take care of it one way or another.

I'll post again when I get further down the road with this!

Thanks for all the follow-up guys.
