@robsworld78 Might have a bug, if you hit reboot while the DC pump is on, it remains on. I'm not sure how much that matters, but something worth noting.
After I remembered to put the NC jumper on, my NC sensor started working... (Once I flipped it to "reverse") and now I have an ATO!
My only complaint now is I hate the chart so far, for that particular device. Trying to track how much it runs right now. I'll report back.
I also keep getting over use macro emails. Saying my timeout of 60 seconds is being hit. Even though the pump isn't on? I'm pretty confused about that.
^this might be due to me being a *******, I've tuned the sensor some more with a screwdriver behind the panel, we'll see!
^Yeah the alert keeps going off, but the pump isn't running. Probably because the sensor is in reverse?
Edit: Weird, it's still sending alerts even after the alerts are turned off for the macro. I had to turn telemetry off entirely.
Looks like you did hit a bug. The DC ports are setup to turn off if no signal is present so I just did a test, when reef-pi is rebooted the pca9685 isn't reset or turned off.
How are you using the DC port?
@Ranjib I tested this with v5.3 by setting up a dosing pump in reef-pi using a pin from the pca9685, if the dose is running and reef-pi is rebooted the signal from the pca9685 is still present when it comes back online keeping the dose running until the next schedule comes around to turn it off. Might be rare that happens but could be serious if/when it does. To test have the dose running then in admin tab press the reboot button and you'll see it.
Sorry can't help with the emails, something isn't right, maybe @Ranjib has some thoughts.
FYI I just wanted to throw this out there, YMMV and this is just my .02 but I had an issue long ago with pca9685 that was stuck in the on position on my doser port, in my case I was around when it happened and caught it but even a reboot and the port still runs...I still have that board and its still in the stuck position, no idea why but that was a valuable lesson at least for me, I no longer have my dosers hooked up to PCA/PWM ports since there are just IMHO to many failure modes that they can get stuck on. I have gone to outlet/timer controlled dosers and will not use the PCA9685 for anything but lights, if a light gets stuck on big deal but I will not use them for dosing ports. I have some posts that should what I am using for dosing but by choosing the rpm of the motor and swapping tubing I can dial in the rates that I need, I have nano tanks and doesn't take a lot to throw them off and a stuck doser is bad juju...
If anyone wants to know more about how I have things setup, I have extensive timers that force stuff off when it should be off regardless, timer/cron is great at that.
