Re: BCS-482 Unresponsive

Did you try to restore from a 462 Backup? I have found that an issue. They have not issued a warning about that but on the Demo site there is one.


I also saw that the Power light Blinks ( and I mean Blink) one time when you first depress the Reset button.

Re: Two Probe Hysteresis Freezer Control

I have found that if I control the Cooling Vessel with a Probe in it at about 7 degrees below the desisred Setpoint it works very well for my setup. I have a 27 gal Fermentor. If yours is smaller it may take less of a Delta. I have found that after 4 days, I need to set the Setpoint at the desired f...

Re: BCS-482 Unresponsive

No light changes. I did have to reset more than once for it to take. The first time I thought I was not pressing the button.. try it several times and it does reset. I have also had it go to all the Outs “on” and not able to connect. I can easily repeat that with a bcs 462 backup. I have had it happ...

Re: BCS-482 Unresponsive

I have had to reset with the Reset button more than one time. At first I thought I was not depressing the button, but I made a small wooden tool that cannot miss. Try several Hard Resets with a power cycle in between is what I did. I do have a power button for the 12 vdc +.

Re: Two Probe Hysteresis Freezer Control

Why use two probes to control? You could use a probe in the freezer set about 7 degrees below the desired fermentation temp. After five days set the freezer at the fermentation temp.

Re: Ladder Hierarchy

This will work: issue.png You would not need to be calling for Out 0 to be On in Proc 0. It will come on only if Proc 0 is ASSERTED and DIN 0 is Made. By putting Out 0 in a coil slot, you have lost manual control. It has not changed. For an Out, Ladder Logic is 2nd to Process State. From my own note...

Re: BCS 4.1.2 Firmware Release

Small Issue with BCS 482 in the Process Editor: Just look and feel as far as I can figure. I have brewed and there was not an issue.

The Outs 16 and 17 still are displayed.
