Do you have a link to specs on the 3-way valve?
What kind of specs are you after?

http://www.electric-valve.com/20-7.html

The 2 important differences are T-Port and L-Port configurations of the valves and I guess how they are actuated. ie - when the output is ON what is the flow of the valve.

I didn't realize there were so many configurations. I have an idea for something that might accomplish this and also enable a couple of other flow display options. May take a while as my free time is coming to an end. Stay tuned.

I made some PDFs so I could learn how to use the HMI GUI. They were written using the beta site.

I am glad to share but take with a grain of salt. There may be errors.

This is awesome bbrally. Once again, stepping the BCS's game up. Unfortunately, I'm in the process of moving so my gear is packed up but I did pull my panel out and am playing around with this. Can't wait to get in a new brewing space and get this GUI running for real.
Good thinking on the text box modifications oakbarn. Crafty solution.

Awesome, look forward to it. I would happily donate to the project, with the 3 way valves implemented I would use this all the time!

Thank you very much!!! Looking to manage 8 x 10bbl fermenters with the PID display over the fermenter just as you have shown on the kettles. Going to start making this tonight. The HMI was one of the big pluses for me on the previous firmware version.

Looking to use an image for eight fermenters to load into the HMI. Example: http://i1378.photobucket.com/albums/ah1 ... qixgca.png

Found help documentation. Researching. Thank you for all of the work on this!!! Greatly appreciated!!!

Was struggling last night to get a PID display on a fermenter. I could load the image of a fermenter on a kettle but not a "text". This BCS-462 is under utilized only controlling fermenter glocol solenoids. Should I go back to a kettle or better attempted with the "TEXT". Thank you very much!!!

Not sure what you mean by this. Some more info and I'll be happy to help out however I can.

Oakbarn wrote up a pretty good tutorial for this. Maybe it will help clarify things.

I'm away from my computer till the weekend, but I'd be happy to send you a file of what I think you're after that you can load into the GUI.
