Re: Howto: Update the Firmware of a BCS-460

4.1.2 is the latest version for both the 460 & 462 (same file). The 4.1.3 version only had fixes that applied to the 482.

Re: Din to activate a pause

Yeah, if you're looking for a 100% pause and resume from anywhere in the process like the UI does, that's not possible from a DIN. If it was only from a main state of the process, you could jump to another state to stop everything, then return back to the previous state when the DIN triggers again. ...

Re: Din to activate a pause

Do you mean to actually pause the running process? e.g. halt all programmed activity for that process, then resume? Or, do you mean to add a pause before another state? Both can be accomplished and triggered via a button push. Give a little more background on the type and use of the pause and lets s...

Re: Updating firmware via USB DFU

There is an imcompatibility with the original bootloader firmware and some Mac devices. You really only have two options: update from a PC, or send it to Brewers Hardware to have the latest bootloader firmware installed (which would then allow you to update from a Mac in the future).

Re: BCS-462 to Measure Pulse Signal from Flowmeter and control solenoid

The BCS does not directly support this. However, I fill my 30 gallon kettles using the timing method and it is very accurate. There are only 3 variables involved in liquid flow measurement via timing. (This works just like the fuel injectors in your car.) If you have (1) a fixed orifice for the flow...

Re: Web based DIN button?

The older 3.x firmware has the WIN buttons. Their only use was as a trigger to exit a state (to move to another state). With the 4.x firmware, that functionality isn't needed since all state buttons are shown at the same time in the UI, so you can directly jump to any state without needing the WIN b...

Re: Float Switch Controlling Output

I was looking to see all of your ladder logic. Precedence and grouping can affect your results.
