Im new to the apex game. Im trying to create a push button for a feed mode. I created a virtual outlet that is tied to the push button:
For every piece of equipment at the bottom I placed:
If Output FeedMode = ON Then OFF
Defer 00:10 Then ON
That works as intended Im sure theres a better way to do it, but it works. Now I have another button that I would like to use as an estop. I did the same thing, Created a virtual outlet called estop. I then placed: If Output ESTOP = ON Then OFF at the bottom over every piece of equipment. When I release the estop button the equipment does not turn back on.

Sample of return pump:
Fallback ON
Set ON
If Output FeedMode = ON Then OFF
Defer 00:10 Then ON
If Output ESTOP = ON Then OFF

What am I doing wrong?

the programming for the feed works fine. Mine is similar to yours. The problem is the estop button. I think its picking up the defer time that I was trying to use for feeding button.

So you need virtual outlet to be like mine and your eshops to be like my advanced settings

Programming for my virtual outlet:
Set OFF
If BLULT OPEN Then ON
Defer 010:00 Then ON
Programming for the return pump:
Fallback ON
Set ON
If Output FeedMode = ON Then OFF
If Output ESTOP = ON Then OFF

Now when I press the feed button. Nothing happens
