Hi guys,
is it possible to configure Profilux 4 to read the data from optical level sensors and then increase or decrease the performance of the pump?
Let's say I have 2 level sensors, and base voltage on 0-10v interface 7V
In case of both sensors are dry I'd like to set 8V, and 6V in case of sensors are wet.
So there will be 3 "speed" of pump, and water level is expected to be adjusted between 2 marks.
Ideally would be nice to have something like PID control, or at least a kind of "delay" in measurements processing to allow the sensors be wet for a short time, let's say because of wave etc.

What do you think, it's possible to setup Profilux 4 in this way?

I´ll think you can do this with a little DIY but you need 3 external voltage producer and 3 switchable outlets, two on/off sensors (optical or floating) and a pump that can take 1-10 V. See if you get an idea - otherwise I come back with mine :D
