need help with apex dosing

I'm thinking about buying the brs dosing pump. Which runs 1.1ml per minutes. I just want to run for 5 minutes (vodka) Can my apex make this happen? or do I have to go buy a timer? If apex can perform this task, can someone help show me how to program it.

There are a couple ways to do it. The simplest is:

[Vodka]
Set OFF
If Time 8:00 to 8:04 Then ON

The Time command works in increments of 1 minute, from the start time to greater than the stop time, i.e. from 8:00 to 8:05

Or, if you want to spread out the dosage throughout the day, the OSC is useful:

[Vodka]
OSC 0:00/1:00/287:00 Then ON

This would dose for 1 minute, 5 times over a 24 hr period.

I like the first option. It seem easier. Do you remember step by step instruction or you can point me toward it.

thanks

If you are new to Apex programming, I suggest reading the Unofficial Users Guide that is stickied at the top of this forum. Basically, you select one of your Outlets and switch it to Advanced mode, then type in the code.
