Archiv verlassen und diese Seite im Standarddesign anzeigen : ATO reservoir Level

15.12.2017, 13:11
I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on a Profilux 4, this will be my first aquarium controller. Currently I use a Tunze ATO, with the pump in the ATO reservoir. I'd like put a low water level sensor(float or optical?) in the ATO reservoir and have the P4 email/Alert me when the reservoir is low so I know to refill it. I don't need it to turn off any pumps or sockets or anything yet (will eventually have the P4 control all ATO operation and reservoir level). I'm sure the P4 is capable of this but just wanted to verify that this is possible and which type of sensor is better to use for this purpose and would I program the sensor for leak detection? Thanks.

Hi there,

Yes, you can do this with the P4. You can use either a GHL float sensor or optical sensor, the choice is yours. :)

This sensor would be connected to one of our LEVEL ports and given the LEAKAGE DETECTION command. The sensor reaction itself should be set to INVERTED so that when the water level is low, an alarm will be triggered.
