Apex and tunze code

I have two tunze 6105's opposite of each other controlled with the VDM. My goal is to have the left pump run at 30% while the one on the right side run at 100%. Then after a certain period of time (say 14 seconds), have them switch so the left pump is at 100% and the right at 30%. To clarify I am not looking for a wave, just pulse.

Any idea how to make the profile? I would also like a code for at night to have the pumps run at a lower speed, I think I can figure that one out since it's very basic. Thanks in advance

Took more time to type it out

Thought this might clarify

Basically I have two tunze 6105's opposite from each other and would like them to create a pulse. I have apex fusion and everything that I have read is pre-fusion so I am getting confused lol.

Right now my tunze pumps are called tunze1 and tunze2. When I go to add the profiles it seems to differ from what I read, in regards to the time being in minutes to seconds.

This is what I was thinking that would work:

profile name: day
sync: disabled (I would like anti-sync??)
divide by 10: disabled (not sure what this does)
initial off time: (says in seconds) 0
on time: (says in sec's not minutes like I have read) 14
off time: (says in seconds not minutes like I have read) 8
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 100

profile name: duskdawn
divide by 10: disabled (not sure what this does)
initial off time: (says in seconds) 0
on time: (says in sec's not minutes like I have read) 14
off time: (says in seconds not minutes like I have read) 8
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 50

the 14 and 8 would be referring to seconds not minutes FYI.

1) Can these pumps be ramped from 30% to 100% every xx seconds or is it just minutes?
2) If above can happen could tunze1 be at 100% while tunze2 is at 30% then after xx seconds, can tunze2 be at 100% while tunze1 is at 30%?

Thank you and I hope this was not confusing

Round 2 no luck

Round 2 no luck

Ok this is what I have done and neither pump turns on, any advice?

Program

TunzeRight
Fallback ON
Set TunzeRight
If Time 08:30 to 20:30 Then TunzeRight
If Time 20:31 to 08:29 Then DuskDawn

Program

TunzeLeft
Fallback ON
Set TunzeLeft
If Time 08:30 to 20:30 Then TunzeLeft
If Time 20:31 to 08:29 Then DuskDawn

Fusion Screen

TunzeLeft (PF1)
sync: disabled
divide by 10: disabled
initial off time: 0
on time: 14
off time: 5
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 100

Fusion Screen

TunzeRight (PF2)
sync: enabled
divide by 10: disabled
initial off time: 14
on time: 14
off time: 0
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 50

Fusion Screen

DuskDawn (PF3)
sync: disabled
divide by 10: disabled
initial off time: 60
on time: 0
off time: 0
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 50

Did you ever get a solid code you might be able to post here? Love to have a code I can start with and tweak as needed.

This still puzzles me but it worked.... I was told to plug the tunze into the wall outlet and the program would work. Well it did and does. When I change the ramp percentage and or duration, th pump follows. I don't understand how since it is not plugged into the apex. This is what I am currently using.

Fusion Screen

TunzeLeft (PF1)
sync: disabled
divide by 10: disabled
initial off time: 0
on time: 7
off time: 16
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 100

Fusion Screen

TunzeRight (PF2)
sync: enabled
divide by 10: disabled
initial off time: 10
on time: 7
off time: 16
min intensity: 30
max intensity: 100

Thanks for the posting. The rational why it works plugging it straight into the wall is the 10V variable speed port controlling the tunze which essentially regulates the power going to said pump.

I was able to quickly get it up and rolling last night and now just want to add a bit more complexity to the system. See this thread - http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1994312&page=3

Probably not going to go that in depth, however a day, night, and flush setting would be nice.
