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

Important: Do a Backup of your BCS PRIOR to updating the firmware. All of your Settings and
Processes are removed from the BCS and it is reset to the Factory Defaults when you do a firmware
update. This is similar to doing a Rest to Factory Defaults or a 15 Second Reset

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

460/462 are not via USB. That is only for the 482.

Re: Pasword doesnt work

Unfortunately, you just got done in. The BCS will ONLY TAKE 9 Characters regardless of what it says. You will need to do a 15 second reset which will reset your BCS to a factory default and you will lose you changes and processes. Hopefully you backed them up.

Re: Float Switch Controlling Output

Did you try reversing the REG to NC? I know I had some issues with the way Ladder Logic and the way REGs work a long time ago. I no longer use that so I am going from memory. It seems counter intuitive at the time.

Re: Tri-clamp Float Switch of Choice

I use 3 cheap ones in series so if one switches on, the DIN is made. They are over the side so I have no idea what others are using

Re: Keyence Process Sensors

If using a DIN no BCS Ground is needed. 24 vdc + to VCC 24 vdc - to GND 24vdc Trigger to in (Trigger). From your flow thing 5 vdc + to common out and NO to DIN. When relay is activated, it allows 5 vdc + to go to pull down resistor inside the BCS. Make that DIN. One shot. You will need a method ( to...

Re: Keyence Process Sensors

Just looked at specs again and that one has both operating voltage and trigger of 24 vdc. You would still need to provide the 5 vdc (BCS 460/462) or 12 Vic (BCS 482)
