When I run the pumps manually through the evolver GUI, instead of a single pumping event, they pump for the interval I specified ( e.g 1-20 seconds), wait ~ 10 seconds, and then pump again for the specified interval.
This pattern repeats indefinitely.
If I flick the pump array on and off, the infinite pumping continues.
If I de-select the pumps on the GUI, and then click the pump buttons, the infinite pumping events stop.
If I start running an experiment (chemostat / turbidostat mode), the infinite pumping also stops.
Any suggestions on how this bug arose? The eVOLVER did not do this a week ago.
Also, any suggestions on the order of powering on the eVOLVER components? As in the order of 5V, 12V, and pump switches?
