@Lasse I really loved the programming thread with the multiple solenoids this week, and gave me some thoughts.

I am trying to automate my RO/DI station, in a much easier way (simple on/off based on float switches). But I want to integrate an automatic TDS monitoring system. Using this. Now this monitor, sends signal in 4-20 mA format, applying a 500 ohms resistor, you convert that signal into a 2 (yes 2!)-10v.

Is there a way with an ADIN card to make sure that if the Profilux detects a voltage above 2 it gives an alarm and prevents the solenoids involved with making RO/DI from opening?

Yes I think it is possible. The Add in chard have two 1-10 V channels. When you install this card - this two sensors show up

Here you can decide a nominal value (when your TDS increase or decrease a certain value). You can also knit it to a PL or switch channel

How did you get on with this ? I’m interested in doing something similar, would be good to know if you got it working :)
 

Have you ever had a reef tank with no sump and how did it go?
