I now use a heat sleeve

Re: New system help

Re: Incomplete migration of ver 3.x system settings

Re: Help! It may be dead

What model? What firmware? Do you have a backup? Have you tried a power cycle? Simply remove power. If that does not work、try a reset to defaults. (You will lose your programming)

Re: BCS 482 Locks up

No. It is a pita when it happens. Could also have something to do with two less outs.

Re: BCS 482 Locks up

Yes. Did you use a 462/460 backup to restore the 482? I have had happen several times. I think
It may have something to do with Setpoint changes but not sure.

I would reset to defaults and build your processes and settings from scratch

You click on the recipe utility then the menu icon ( three lines: upper right) to EXPORT a recipe file. You can IMPORT the file you exported. The normal backup does not save the recipe data. I...
