    Hi, can I control tunze 9410 skimmer with profilux 4? If yes what would I need? Thanks.

    Sure. Just plug it into one of the Powerbar 5.1 outlets and program this socket to react how ever you wish. Some like to shut down the skimmer during feeding. This is accomplished by simply assigning the socket to respond to a specific feed mode.

    I meant DC version of the skimmer - can I drive the pump up and down tuning the skimmer output?

    Can a timer be controlled by a probe?
    I put my ozone on a timer so it runs for just a few hours early in the day. But I want the safety of it being disabled completely if redox gets too high.

    Yes, I did this with pH. You need to use programable logic.

    I wanted my Tunze ATO to only run and add kalk at night when pH is lowest. To avoid a big pH spike at 11:00 PM, I only wanted it to run for 60 seconds every 1.5 hours.

    I set the pH probe #1 nominal value to 8.2

    I set the timer #1 to on for 60s every 90 min. from 11:00 PM till 8:00 AM

    Set programmable logic #1 to "pH probe 1 increase" and "Timer #1".

    I set socket 5 (ATO) to progamable logic #1.

    I tested it and it worked. It has been running for 4 nights and it reduced my PM pH drop from 0.3 to close to 0.1.

    Do the same with your redox probe and you should be good to go.

    Thanks, I'll give it a shot!

    Have you done any other programmable logic? I'd like to start a thread and sticky it that has PL examples.
    Everyone can add their PL to the thread, and I will continually update the first post with links to all the individual post throughout the thread.
    I think PL is a big mystery to most people.

    Great idea for a sticky!

    No, I only did that one. I plan on many more PL to get the P4 to do what I need.

    A few days ago, I had no idea where to start. I moved from a ReefKeeper and was clueless regarding Profilux and PL. I found this thread through a search: http://forum.aquariumcomputer.com/showthread.php?10578-need-help-programming> Really great examples of PL. That thread may be a good one to start the sticky.

    Please let me know how your redox PL goes.

    The programing guide is worthless for calibration of the sensors Proflux 4. Is there a manual that explains what to select to get the calibration working from the GHL control center.. I am thinking this is not user friendly...

    I felt the same way at first. Its in there. But its written a little confusing. The "user friendly guide" I wrote should have your probes up and running in no time.

    Thank you @stevo01 and @d2mini really appreciate the help never thought that I needed to do the calibration from the unit. It was simple until I found that sitting on the tile floor would not let me to properly work the enter key. Need to not be so grounded.lol learning every day!

    GHL has stoped working......
    (Error message on screen when trying to open).

    While trying to get the P4 connected to the wifi, of which I cant seem to do.
    I am using the doser 2 app / wifi, vortec module etc...
    Everything is working great until now.

    I can't even get the GCC to work now, it comes with the error and shuts down. I have reloaded / download current version multiple times, uninstalled/ etc... even tried the v6, still same error.

    Can't figure this out.
