I'm planning to control my roaster's burner bythe Artisan's internal PID. I've read the instructions, and it is not clear to me whether a Yocto Tx device (4-20/0-10) can be controlled automatically by the PID?
I recently installed v 2.4.0 and need help setting it up. I followed the
only guide I could find which is archived on the huky forum. Even though
it was written for an earlier version and specific to a different device
(phidget) than the one I'm using (Center 301) I followed as closely as
possible. I started a roast but Artisan didn't show the temps. The
error line says: Serial exception: Unable to open serial port.
Can someone help with this? Is there an up-to-date guide for this version
of artisan? Ideally, I'd love to see a video that steps through the
configuration and expected outcome?
thanks in advance for your help!
Yes, that was it. I’ve always has the DELETE on reset ticked as it was convenient for my process. Knowing the new behavior, I’ll just update my process/steps. Not a problem. Just wanted to check to make sure this was an intentional change. I’m always using the latest Continuous Build so… just want to let folks know what I was seeing.
Thanks for the quick reply!!
So... I noticed different behavior (or a bug, not sure which).
What I use to do --
Bring up the Roast Properties window
Enter various bits of information (title, beans, weight, etc.)
Check to make sure all my reading were working and looked valid
Start my Roaster (Behmor)
Do a preheat
etc. etc. etc.
Now, when I take the steps mentioned above... when I click ON.. all the Roast Properties get cleared.
In other words, I had to have clicked ON to prevent the Roast Properties from being cleared.
Is this the 'new behavior' or is something not quite right.

after a long search and reading, i decide to write this thread. i really cant find an enough documentation for this information.
im trying to connect between "PID thermo controller (TX4S) >> rs485 >> Modbus >> ethernet/wifi"
in this case, i just want to use the PID as data logger (not controller). and connecting the PID to my computer (using wifi), through rs 485 protocol.
as you have describe from your blog, i should start from "config > Device", "Meter >> modbus".
(please correct me, if im using the wrong options, above)
in modbus tab, i got 2 question:
1. you are talking about fill the slave id. there are 2 settings about "slave".
input 1-8 (slave) and pid "box" (slave). what is the purpose of each settings?
2. in "type", there are 5 settings (serial rtu, ascii, binary, tcp and udp)
based on my scheme, which type should i choose?
i've seen a lot of explanation about register or com port, but not about type.
your help and explanation will be a great help.
