Hey friends, I've been trying and failing for a while here to get my COR20s to soft-start.

I have profile "Ramp_Up". 1%-100% over 1 minute.

When I add Set Ramp_Up to the advanced tab, it works, once. The upload to Apex icon never turns orange.
Next time I click advance tab, its gone.

Similarly, if I use the configurator pulldown for Fallback and set it to this profile, it works, once. Next time I check the settings its back to Fallback On.

Any thoughts?

The Advanced tab is only used to override the settings in the graphical schedule. If you want to use Set or Fallback (which are inherent in the graphical schedule), you have to turn off the graphical schedule and go into the Basic View. On the COR Schedule screen, click the Basic View button at the top to reveal the full code window where you can manually edit:

Wow, that's incredibly obtuse and well hidden. Sincere thanks!

(PS, all these Apex icons are identical, I thought that was the Task list...)

Ok, this didn’t work. Debugging next level please ;-)

Here’s the COR program:

Fallback ON
Set Ramp_Up
tdata 10:20:00,0,0,100,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
If FeedA 000 Then OFF
If FeedB 000 Then OFF
If Output V_Feeder = ON Then OFF
If Output V_PwrOut2min = ON Then PowerOutPum
If Leak CLOSED Then OFF

Ramp_Up is a ramp profile. 5%-100% over 1 time unit (minute?).

feeding went as expected, then the pumps started right back at 100%
