Setup: The BCS-460 is connected to 1 temperature probes, reading ambient temperature. It is right out of the box, not calibrated. Outputs are looped back, wired to the inputs. So when Out1 is asserted, the Din1 will also turn on. Feel free to ask any questions.

The BCS-460 is fully programmable. A few processes have been programmed into the demo unit, brief descriptions below:
<update> Processes are now open for users to program, processes listed below are may not be available.
- Process0: Timer Demo - Simple process meant to demonstrate state transitions. It rotates through 3 outputs, asserting each for 20 seconds based on a timer.
- Process1: Mash Process - Temperature step mash process, typical brew day with delayed start, protein rest, saccharification rest, and mash out. Similar to Example System 1.
- Process2: Fly Sparge - Process to control a pump with float switch for a fly sparge. Similar to Example System 3
- Process3: Ferm Ramp - This process demonstrates Ramp Mode. Ramps the temperature setpoint from 60* to 80* in 30sec, holds, and then ramps down. Obviously not used for a real fermentation, but meant to show temperature ramping capabilities.
