View Full Version : Help Programming Dual Gyre - Alternating

08/19/2017, 06:28 AM
I'm trying to program two gyre's on opposite sides of the tank. I'd like them to run in forward/reverse (I have the alternating cable for each) where they run in forward for a set period (say 30 s) then reverse for a set duration (say 15 s) with the opposite pumping running opposite schedule. I'd like them to operate in this mode during the day and drop to 20% constant at night. Does anyone have the outlet programs/profiles that they can cut and paste for me to accomplish this? Thanks

Anyone that has a setup similar to this?

I would assume that it uses the Apex "variable speed" port. If it does I have experience programming a Tunze 6055 powerhead and I can't imagine the programming between the two would be all that different. Before I dump my own knowledge out here though you might want to check out this video I found....

Help Programming IceCap Gyre in Apex Controller (http://blog.coralvue.com/icecap-gyre-interface-module-apex-controller-setup/)

Let me know if that video is not what you need and I'll be glad to help you out myself.

If you're looking for instructions on how to set up two Ice Cap Gyre Interface Modules to work together and create the Apex code, check out this video:


Good luck... it looks complicated, but if I had it to do over again, I would get a new interface module to go with my new XF230 instead of the Advanced Controller. I already had an XF130 running via an Ice Cap / Apex interface module. I love how easy the programming is with the new Maxspect advanced controller running the XF130 and XF230 in OGC mode - - it's a beautiful thing and I didn't write a single line of code - - but I definitely gave up some control by not running them through the Apex...
