Boil outlets not triggering on BCS-462

Post by brewworx » Sat Feb 02, 2019 4:39 am

OK, so I setup the outputs as 4-herms (0-3) and 4-boil (4-7)

From the Main page if I select any of the HERMs buttons, they fire. But not so for the Boil outputs.
These are tied to the BCS on OUT0 and OUT1. There is about 3.8vdc on OUT0 when the Herms fires but nada for the Boil.


Bad unit?

If I move the wire to the Herms all the relays trigger

Good grief....
OK, so it's wired as a single output control triggering all 4 outlets, and a switch to disable any single one. So I have HEAT, BOIL, PUMP 1 and PUMP 2

Overly simplified :)

Problem solved. Now I just gotta get everything installed and tested to get the PID tuned and figure out if I can get a pair of 3/4" HERMs coils to work well, or if a 3x RIMs coils will be needed to heat a 3.5bbl system.
