I've been using the Artisan program for some time now on an Ambex ym2 with
an Omega data logger and a 2 ghz dual core laptop. I just loaded 0.8 and
I'm hoping that I might get smoother ROR values with this version as I see
that is one of the improvements. Maybe the issue is the fast response of my
probes? Is there a way to compensate for this in Artisan? Can you make
some recommendations as to the EXTRA settings for the newer version and
maybe something up to date about the effects of using values too large or
too small? My ROR just jumps around too much and by the time it's
dropping/rising too rapidly it's almost too late for me to do anything about
it. Could I benefit (or not and why) from using over sampling or a higher
or lower sample rate? I'm at 4.0 now. Which curve smoothing values affect
real time displays and which don't? I've been reading Scott Rao's new book
and find myself evaluating my roasts and looking carefully at ROR and 1st to
drop percentages so Artisan is so useful. Thanks so much to all that have
contributed to this great program.
All right, I have put over 300 roasts through my Huky and lately my RoR curve has been going crazy. I get very steep and sharp drops and rises in the RoR @ random times through out my roast. The only thing that seems to help the issue is if I quit and restart artisan between roasts. Any thoughts? Could my thermocouple for BT be going bad? Awhile back I noticed that my ET and BT temps where spastic as well. Turns out the metal table I had everything on was affecting the phidget I was using. Everything is now up off the metal on a thick piece of wood. The RoR had been doing great until these past couple days of roasting.
This is my setup for a San Franciscan. If this doesn't work you should
call the good folks at the San Franciscan Roaster Company. They can help
to get the Watlow configured properly to work with Artisan.

I’m not sure I understand you fully.
Yesterday you wrote that you had

And now you say that you did not but a client did?
To me it seems obvious your client (and you) are unsure what the instructions are exactly and who did what ;-)

If you try to connect two devices over a serial connection and they each talk in an incompatible way, then yes, nothing good will come of it.
This has been so since the very first dialup modems in the 1980’s. If one was on 300 baud and the other end on 1200 baud, nothing happened.
So it’s a good thing for your client and for you to learn about the devices you have, what serial communication means, how this works, how to connect probes et cetera.
Thanks for clarifying what’s happening, I am sure it will start working soon!

I have just got back from LA and no time to test on my unit but my friend THOMAS has setup as shown below in screenshots. Do you have any suggestions why this is not working? I see one issue on the baud rate : I be leave instructions show it should be set to 9600? Would that cause the problem? Any other suggestions from our computer experts is greatly appreciated!

It’s possible to create smaller screen snapshots (in Lightroom for instance, or in your preferred mail program before sending) or just select smaller fields for snapshots, not the complete screens but only the parts with the relevant numbers / menus.
I do not have an Omron but I do use the Modbus currently on a beta.
