How do I link two peristaltic pumps together?

This question came into our support email, and am answering here in case others have the same request.

Each card has inputs and outputs, and cards can be connected in a way that an output from one card can be connected to the input of another card.

In this case we have a card representing a bank of peristaltic pumps like this:

If, for example, we want pump 2 to come on and off with pump 1, we can use the connected card functionality - available on the back of every card:

Select this item, then select Add a Connection. In this case, we’re creating an outbound connection from this card back into a different element of this card. It would look something like this:

Here we have created a new outbound connection from the Nutrient Pumps card out to the same card (Nutrient Pumps). The connection is triggered by the output of Flora Micro - Brown, such that any time it changes, that output is sent to the input element **Flora Gro - Green".

With this connection in place, any time the Flora Micro - Brown pump switches on or off, that same value will be forwarded to Flora Micro - Green turning it on and off at the same time.
