With the current firmware release, there are two options for Apex Power detection: via the aquabus or via the 12V adapter. So if you have it set to power adapter and no adapter is present, that could be the issue. I don't remember the exact menu sequence, so see the Unofficial Users Guide on how to set the power option.

It's not clear here, but make sure that each outlet name is unique. The Apex has problems if outlet names are duplicated.


HEAT2
Fallback OFF
Set OFF <---Not needed
If Temp < 77.0 Then ON
If Temp > 78.0 Then OFF
If Temp < 75.0 Then OFF

HEAT1
Fallback OFF
Set OFF <--- Not needed
If Temp < 77.3 Then ON
If Temp > 77.0 Then OFF

The Set OFF will interfere with your desired control band, shutting the heater off as soon as the ON condition is no longer true.


CHILL
Fallback ON
Set ON
If Temp < 75.0 Then OFF

I assume you are relying on the chiller thermostat to control with the Apex providing backup override. You would probably get finer control by letting the Apex control and relying on the thermostat as backup.


FEED
Fallback OFF
Set OFF
If Outlet Auto_Feed2 = ON then ON
Would like to have this Turn ON 2 minutes after FeedA goes ON.

You could add:
If FeedA 000 Then ON
Defer 002 Then ON

Keep in mind that the Defer applies to the whole outlet, so it would also delay on Auto_Feed2

Add:
Defer 015 Then OFF

Simply add the appropiate probe name to each desired alarm/email outlet. I don't use the conductivity probe, but I think it would be:

If Condx < yy Then ON

Where x is the address of the PM.

Turn it on/off via the display module: System - Misc Setup - Power Monitor
