GHL Profilux 4 programming

This thread is a great reference and we are subscribed to it and happy to answer any questions there as well. 

You are going to set up two timers, one cyclical (a) and one normal (b) Then create a programmable logic (c) that that uses Timer a AND Timer b.  Finally, on your Plank outlet, select the function as Programmable Logic c and save.

Neptune Apex programming for seconds-level resolution

Use the OSC command to create a recurring on/off cycle.  If the total number of minutes:seconds is divisible by 1440 (the number of minutes in a day), the cycle will automatically repeat at midnight, and the feeder will activate at the same times each day.  For example:

Fallback OFF

OSC 000:00/00:30/119:30 Then ON

If Time 20:01 to 07:59 Then OFF

This code causes the feeder outlet to activate for 30 seconds every 120 minutes (30 seconds on, 119:30 off) between the hours of 8am and 8pm.  You will get (7) 30 second feeding periods at 8am, 10am, … 8pm.

This could be modified to:

OSC 000:00/00:20/119:40 Then ON

For a 20 second feed time.  The key is that the minutes:seconds adds up to a round number (120 min in this case) that evenly divides into 1440.
