Since the I2C is a Pin Connector, does it provide the 12 vdc + and - ?
Yes. You can use the 5 pin jumpers to attach LED displays and power them through the jumper. Much easier connectivity for external external expansion.

For the new end caps, I'll see if I can get an ETA on those.

Hey Jon -

Can you tell me if the 482 can input data from a flow reader? I use a couple in my current setup to monitor run off rates.

Thanks.

No, the BCS does not interface to flow meters.

I think that the screws holding the plate is a Trox T-10 star bit which you can get at Lowes or Home Depot.

The bug isn't in the 482, it's in the backup/restore utility. I don't have a date, but I know it's is being looked at.
