Mini review of program Please

I am asking for some opinion before I change my program.
If I add the following lines will I achieve what I want?

If TIME > 0:00 THEN SKM1 ON
If FEED CYCLE THEN SKM1 OFF
MAX CHANGE 20 THEN SKM1 ON

SKM1 is to stay off for 20m after a feed cycle to let everything get back to normal. Is this going to do it?

OSC 180 /180 ON/OFF THEN ZEO1 ON
OSC 5 /175 ON/OFF THEN STR1 OFF

What I am trying for here is ZEO1 on for 3 h and off for 3 hrs.
STR1 on for 5 m and off for about 3 hours. These 2 devices are not related just on a similar on/off frequency.

Did I use the correct statements?

Which version of the AC controller is this? THe reason that I ask is that the latest software supports the following:

If FeedA 030 Then SKM Off

If you want (or have to) use Max Change then the amount of time should be feed time + 30 minutes, If you don't add in the feed time then the skimmer will turn on 20 mins after it turns off (e.g., 20 mins after the start of the feed cycle).

Timer names are limits to 3 characters.

Great, I'll try the feed plus. The problem is that by the time the sump stabilizes the skimmer overruns.

It is an ACIII about 8 months old.

Thanks again
