Hi all, I have two Tunze 6045, I think, anyway they use the turbelle controllers.
I have the link cable to control the two of them simultaneously for wave production, but for the life of me can't get them to recognise a wave that doesn't keep getting bigger.
I went online and found videos where they show the programming auto wave on one controller, and a video (BRS) where they show the connection of two with a link cable, but not one showing the two linked AND how to set the wave up between the two (sitting on opposite sides of DT).
I know one needs to be set up as remote, but the Tunze manual doesn't show that for some reason.
Only people that actually know need answer please.

You sure it's not in the manual?  I'm at work so don't have the manual to hand but I'm sure there's something about flipping it into inverse mode by holding one of the buttons.  Mine's a 6040 but I think the controller is the same.

Here you go, page 30 and then 36

My reading of that is set the wave up on one, connect the other controller and set it to external, then hold down Feed for 5 seconds to put it in inverse mode.

Still nothing detectable.
So: does the second controller want to be unplugged and off whilst the wave adjust function be on the first controller?
In the manual that's as clear as mud, it mentions to get the other controller to be inverse, to hold down for at least 5 seconds the food timer button, then it says the "select" LED will blink, well, there is no "select" LED!
Bloody nightmare

It looks like there is no wave function with two powerheads opposite each other

So you can only do long pulse not the normal short pulse to make a wave?

@ajm83 My apologies, what I meant to say is that the "auto wave " function is missing when setting it up as per the video, unless I'm reading it wrong.
Been mad busy with work so not had the time to spend on it so far.
