Re: Float Switch Controlling Output

I think then they would be on all the time (when the float switch is floating) no matter what.

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

We do this with an ESP8266. But since we are not using its WiFi capability, you could use an Arduino. Here's a pic of it. Digital display with buttons for choosing volume.

Re: Float Switch Controlling Output

For what it's worth, this doesn't work for me either. (Removing all the other rungs.)

DIN1 (Float Switch)
REG2 (asserted on a state where we are using heating elements)
OUT5 (heating element)

I'll try Oakbarn's suggestion this morning.

Float Switch Controlling Output

We are trying to kill elements if the fluid level gets below the float switch for any reason. We are having difficulty getting this to work. Ladder Logic: The above works fine if we do this. IF DIN1 (Float Switch) AND PROC2 (process where we are using heating elements) THEN OUT5 (heating element) It...
