I just got mine, I don't know how to program it right so I'm using John's graph on a cube 24x24x20, until I get the hang of the program.
So far loving it.

Maybe people should post tank pics or comment on the results. I wouldn't want to copy a program from someone who's tank looks like a toilet.

Here's my graph and instructions on how to import it!

1. Visit the following page to download Jon’s Radion Graph:
http://software.ecotechmarine.com/JonsRadionGraph.zip

2. Once the download has finished, save the .etg file to your desktop.

3. Open up the EcoSmart software, and adjust your Start Day/Start Night times in Artificial Mode to 10:00am/11:00pm.

4. Apply the .etg file to your graph by selecting the down arrow button that says “Import to Selected Schedule”.

5. The graph will then be applied to your existing project, where you can now program the group(s) and save the project for future reference.

Hi Jon,

I just received and set up my Radion today and love it! I downloaded and programmed the unit with your program as described above.

In looking at the program, it shows that by 12am all of the lights should be off (0% with 0% intensity). I made sure that my Radion is in Artificial mode with the blue LED on the top lit up as well. However, as I type this shortly after 1am, there are still blue LED's on (very dim) and I do not know why?

I tried plugging the Radion in to the computer and re-loading the program. All of the LEDs turned off for about 3 minutes and then the blue ones turned back on again (very dim). Am I missing something in your program or is there something wrong here. I look forward to any advice or suggestions that you have!

Is there any way you can e-mail me a copy of your EcoSmart Project (by saving and attaching your project to an e-mail)? This way it will allow me to browse your graph and assess why the LEDs are turning on after lights out. You can e-mail the project to [email protected]. Please include a link to this thread in your post.

I just programmed my first graph. What do you all think of a schedule like this?

Lights on at 9am
20k from 9am-1pm
10k from 1pm-5pm
20k from 5pm-9pm
Lights off at 9pm

I had a similar problem where one of my two Radions left some LED's on during the night, white and red ones very dimly but on nonetheless, and I did a factory refresh and reprogrammed it and the problem went away. I figured programming onboard the fixture must have gotten corrupted because no amount of reprogramming either the group or individual light fixed it, only the factory reset did it. The only issue I have now, if you can call it that, when I do the simulation the fixtures start off a liitle staggered with on coming on a tiny bit before the other. I reset the time from the PC and it still lags on one of them a tiny bit. Not a huge deal but I do older why the timing is a faction off between the two.

Thanks for the quick reply Jon. I sent you an email with your original program that I was using as well as a "modified" version that I made that might fix the issue. I wouldn't think that I am the only person having this issue if this is actually a problem with your programming.

Also, I forgot to ask in my email if you would recommend any brightness changes or anything in my program with a 24" tank as I understand that you made it for a 20" tank?

I look forward to hearing from you! BTW, I am loving the light overall! BIG step up from my Ecoxotic Retro!!

This also worked for me thanx for the great tip. quick question tho i just got my radion and have it sitting about 10inch from the water line just to be on the safe side am i be over cautious tank is a marine land 60g cube 24x24x24 and what would you guys recommend as far as getting things acclimated to the new light if any one has any helpful graph as well that would be awesome at the moment i am use john's should i lower any specifics.

Thanx

The color spectrum setting are coral and personal choice dependent.

My comment goes along with my thread in this forum. I see you use 50% intensity, I am around that myself. Is this the good results intensity "zone"? At 100% everything was bleaching. Why is there two 12am's on the graph? Will that mess up the program?

I was bleaching SPS at 100%, so I dropped it to 50% and will see what happens. I expect things to start coloring up again, then I can raise it 5% a week or something.

As for the 12am's, I took the screenshot, so ecotech just has a typo in their graph programming it looks like.

Here are the graphs for Vivid Aquariums Display Tank. Their settings are as close "as you can get to an Ushio 20k MH bulb without an ultraviolet channel."

John. I uploaded your file and noticed that basically your intensity and color scheme was the same as mine. However I couldn't figure out why u have so many plot points. Well after two days running this program the subtle change is fantastic. Mine was so blocky

Great job
