Thanks for the update. I too just received my 462 and have been rumblin', bumblin' and stumblin' through processes, states, set points, exits the past couple of days. Temp sensors are back ordered so I can't do wet "dry runs" on nearly ready brew stand and control box to see actual results of programming. Haven't ventured near ladder-logic at all, not a clue - yet.

4.0 sounds promising. Single page to view your entire recipe protocol would greatly simplify things. I'm still getting hung up setting variables for each state in a process without goofing up another state, and coming to the realization that "pause" my be a frequently used state.

Yeah, I figured as much. It is just at times when the firmware makes a huge leap, there are times that the hardware may not be able to support it. For instance maybe the firmware code has grown to the point that there isn't enough flash memory to store it. Being I just got my BCS (arrived a week ago) I figured I would be safe from this but thought I would ask.
