Cerbo bilgepump system

I recently installed a Cerbo GX and connected my 4 bilge pumps to the digital inputs.

One of the data elements is cycle count. I'd like to set an alarm if any bilge cycles more than 15 times in any 24 hours period.

Is there anyway to reset this parameter to 0 once per day.

I've set another alarm if the input state is "on" for more than 60 seconds. If the bilge runs for more than 60 consecutive seconds the bilge either has an air lock or there is some sort of flooding. In addition to cycle count tracking I'd like to track cumulative run time in a 24 hour period, anyway to do this?

Thanks

you can export the information to a excel file and then do calculations there, otherwise the options in alarms are all you have

Can I advice to Victron to adjust this part so that a proper alarm can be set. The use of a bilge pump is to control the bilge and monitor it well. If I understand correctly:


There are 2 important items;

If the pump runs longer then X time

How many time the pump has run in a day. (history is nice but the day is important)


Maybe this would be nice to sent to a sms or whats app, so that a real notice is made to the owner!
