Re: My version of the HMI builder

21 months since my last update. I actually had this mostly finished about a year ago, but it took a quarantine to finally finish it. Most of the updates this time were for a friend to make it more usable for him. Circumstances have prevented me from brewing for years, and many more brew-less years a...

Re: Din to activate a pause

I want the suspend the timer(s) and close all outputs, just as the "pause" button on the BCS interface does. Pressing the "resume" button then continues the timers(s) and opens the relevant outputs of the state the pause took place in.

Din to activate a pause

I'm wiring a control panel for a buddy who does not want to use any interface other than the control panel.

But he would like a pause button. I don't believe there's anyway to program a pause from a din.

Is this something that could be added to a future update?

Re: Thermocouple for Coffee Roaster?

The BCS won't be able to monitor a Coffee Roaster.

Thermocouples aren't compatible with the BCS and thermisters, which are, will fail under the high heat.

Re: BCS API Help

Try entering "http://192.168.1.234/api/process/4/timer" into your browser, this will allow you to see what the BCS is giving you for values. When I do this it returns an array of objects, not just the timer values. Try this: $('#timer0').html(value[0].value); Doing this would return the name of that...

Re: BCS API Help

Here's some code I wrote long ago to help someone else out who needed to get temps. There are lots of ways to do this, this only one: // run our javascript once the page has loaded $(document).ready(function () { getBCSTempWithJqueryGet('http://192.168.1.218/'); }); function getBCSTempWithJqueryGet(...

Re: Thanksgiving & BCS

You may find the thermistor unable to deal with the heat of the oil. I tried to control a coffee roaster a long time ago and the it worked for a while, but failed when the thermistor got too hot. Most thermistors aren't designed for temps too far above boiling.

Re: Howto: Calibrate Temperature Probes

Although stating to write a tutorial/help for the utilities I've written, I never have.

Is there something specific you'd like help with?

Re: problems changing config files

Trying using this version:

The one linked through the BCS seems to be older and no longer works properly.

Ladder logic not working as expected

I want to stop all processes and start process 0 is an output is asserted. I've used the following ladder logic, but when output 0 is not asserted it forces a stop to process 0 and a start to all others. I thought that with no output asserted, nothing would be done. How can I accomplish what I want?...
