Assuming you mean on an Apex...

You don't create it - you use the built-in VarSpd ports/outlets in the Apex full model, or if using a VDM module with either Apex or Apex Lite, the outlets will be automatically created when you connect the VDM.

WHO DAT??
You don't have to create it, it's already there. There are 4 of them. You just need to create the appropriate profiles with the intensity and durations and assign them to the variable speed ports at the desired times. Check out Chapter 6 of the User Guide.

You should have 4 VarSpd outlets. On the main status page, they will be listed just above the SndAlm_I6 outlet.

If you only see that 1 outlet listed, then there is a problem.

BTW... all outlets must have a unique name... unpredictable behavior may result with duplicated outlet names. So you should rename your 'free' outlets to 'free1', 'free2', etc. or similar .

Be very careful with the Variable Speed ports as my Base unit Died from using these for dimming my Led's. Worked fine for a couple of months then we changed the Ramp up and down time and No more Working!!! No Loaners for Warranty work anymore either, A Game changer for me, Kinda makes the Warranty useless IMO
