Re: Preventing the BCS from rapid ON / OFF with VFD on same circuit

Completely independent and not running pump cart power cord near the temp probes or solenoid wires. The BCS-462 running in the control panel in question today is controlling a 10bbl and two 20bbl fermenters. Only the 10bbl ferm program was on with a delicious IPA inside. The pump cart was no where n...

Preventing the BCS from rapid ON / OFF with VFD on same circuit

What is the best way to prevent a BCS from triggering rapid relay ON/OFF ( from temps bouncing ) due to the polarity caused from a VFD, pump cart on the same circuit. It is plugged into a plug on the opposite wall but all ties into the same circuit breaker box. Have this happening at multiple locati...

Re: Barbeque Temp Probes.

You would need to program the coefficients with different thermistors / temp probes like these correct??

Re: BCS-482 Specifications (replacement for BCS-460/462)

Received the power supply with just the plug. Brewers Hardware confirmed we need to cut the cord. Do we plug in (wire#1)to one of the far left plugs 12v and the second wire to ground?

Re: HMI Builder available in 4.0?

Thank you Oakbarn!!! I just ordered a BCS-462 to work with and try to master the HMI. Really struggled with it on my first attempt on someone else's. I think if I have y own to work with it will make things a lot easier. We just added another three 3bbl fermenters and the PID I replaced on our Perli...

Re: New BCS-460 Availability

What is going to be different on the newer ones? I can not find any 460's for sale anywhere. Looking to buy a 460.

Re: what happen to the wiki pages

The new UI is incredible!!! For fermentation, 3.7 was super simple. It just needed two exit conditions and with a simple HMI it is beautiful. I hosted a solid works image of a couple fermenters, added an indicator light in the HMI and when the glycol solenoid was open a big green light was lit above...

Re: HMI Builder available in 4.0?

This is very cool but for fermentation the old HMI was super simple and sweet. Does anyone have the old links to the BCS-462 firmware that used the original HMI. Think it was version 3.7.1? Please let me know. Thank you in advance!!

Re: what happen to the wiki pages

If I wanted to utilize the old HMI for simple fermentation controls would version 3.7.1 be the last version that used the HMI? Found the new process very cumbersome on version 4.+ and for simple fermentation controls with the HMI it was very beautiful. I am using a BCS-460 and would like to do the s...
