Drew's Doser Peristaltic Dosing Pump and Apex Jr

Anyone running Drew's Doser Peristaltic Dosing Pumps on an Apex Jr? Can you program them with Neptune by chance? Any of the 4 outlets ok to utilize?

cheers

Yes you can use the Apex jr to controll a Drews doser. I had one set up to run every hour for 1 min after my lights were out to dose alk.

I used the BRS dosers for a while(basically the same as the drew's), and to program them for the apex I liked to use this site:

https://www.reeftronics.net/adpg/dosingcalc.php

Just inpout the speed of your doser, the amount you want to dose, and any time you would like to start(like starting during the night and stopping during the day), and it gives you the syntax to put into your apex.
