Re: Stepper Motor Control

It's pretty far out the box. I suggest you use an analog hydro static pressure sensor. The BCS can't read it, but you can use an arduino or a threshold switch like http://automation.supply/products/mini- ... lue-switch.

Yes, I did the install correctly.

I may have a wheezy card, let me see if that's possible.

Re: BCS Desktop App (V 0.5.0) for Windows, Linux, Mac & Rpi

I was able to run it on the PC.

Maybe a Jessie issue... don't know. I will try to send you the output.

Re: BCS Desktop App (V 0.5.0) for Windows, Linux, Mac & Rpi

I didn't change anything other than the IP address in the config-settings.xml. It is therefore loading config-layout-jonw.xml

Unless you are talking about different XML?

Re: BCS Desktop App (V 0.5.0) for Windows, Linux, Mac & Rpi

No luck for me... crashes harder than Mr. Magoo piloting an F15. At first the main screen comes up, then when I go to the settings tab it crashes. I figured this was due to the wrong IP, so I edited the config file and entered the correct IP. Now it crashes right upon startup. I am running RPi 2 vB,...

Re: Self Latching Relay

As you noted, use a latching relay. It will require two outputs on the BCS: one to latch and one to reset. The trick is to note that the BCS outputs can only drive a few milliamps, and the relay you are designing in will have a contact rating (that must exceed the circuit power you are switching dow...

Re: Convert from pin header to screw terminal

My bet is that board will not work.
