One thing I noticed is I uploaded my original diagram, it has some flaws here is the correct version.
This design is different than most because I'm using on off pushbuttons instead of three way selectors. It takes more sss'rs but I think it looks cleaner on the control panel.
The buttons and the screen are all flush mount. They are mounted in an 18 x 20 piece of SS, bent in to a slanted console. It mounts to the side of my brew bench. The table has a 6 inch back splash, so the panel bolted on to the table blends right in. Or least it will when I get home to build it. All the ssrs and other wiring is in an enclosure mounted under the brew bench on a hinge so it swings dun for access. I just need to be home to put it all together. But here I have plenty of time to design ahead of time rather than my build on the fly technique.

I didn't realize brewers hardware bought out bcs, that's crazy. I'll definitely keep the updates coming. Good luck across the pond, stay safe.

Here is notice for Brewers hardware,

Big announcement! Brewer's Hardware has acquired the assets of Embedded Control Concepts, and will be the exclusive provider of the BCS series temperature controllers. We are very excited for this new direction for the product. Brewers Hardware offers world class brewing equipment, and we're extremely happy that they've chosen to add the BCS into their offerings.

Many customers have noted here on the forum, and emailed me directly about BCS availability concerns. Unfortunately we haven't had the time or resources to keep up with the demand. With the new arrangement, I'm happy to say that this will no longer be an issue.

As for me personally, I'm not going anywhere. I will be helping to manage the transition in a consulting role. For the sake of nostalgia, I've attached a picture of one of the first BCS user interfaces. Its come a long way, and all because of great customer feedback from BCS users like you. I can't wait to see where it goes from here! Thank you for your continued support

Default Another payday

Another pay day and another order from Brewer’s Hardware.
I ordered 40’ silicone tubing and the rest of my fittings. The only good thing about being over here is I can save my beer money to buy beer making equipment. I noticed that Darrin has now listed the BCS 460 for sale now and the BCS 462 available on 1 Nov!! Also ECS has posted the latest update for the BSC.
So many parts to buy before I get to brew!!

Very cool, I used to used silicone tubing but found it too floppy so I switched to the high temp thermo plastic, personally like it much better. I know I've been slacking with updates, I will try and gone some pictures and stuff written this weekend. 95% of the wiring is done and I've worked out on paper how I want the programming for a brew day to go. So I'm hoping to get that done and programmed by the end of the weekend as well as getting the rest of the mechanical stuff completed. Hopefully by next week I'll be able to run a trial with some water and see if it all works.
