[QUOTE="TomSD"]OK got side tracked. Anyway, here is how I program mine...

SP1 67 (varies, see below)
SP2 0
r0 dep
r1 2
r2 2
c0 10
c1 dir (default)
c2 inv
P0 F (documents say C is default but I never remember changing mine)
P4 sd1 (default)
P5 1

OK so these settings result in the following...
[*]Range is 65 - 69 F[*]Heat comes on at 65 (SP1+SP2-r2) and kicks off at 67 (SP1+SP2)[*]Cooling comes on at 69 (SP1+r1) and kicks off at 67 (SP1)[*]10 minute cool-down (c0) to extend life of the freezer


Just set my love unit up. When programming it it also has R1-8, A0-7, C0-4, P0-5, H0-5. Do I just skip (leave default) the parameters that were not included above?

Thanks

Sorry, some how my question got included in the OP (was trying to quote). Anyway do I leave the parameters default that were not listed above. The unit has parameters for R1-8, A0-7, C0-4, P0-5, and H0-5

Thanks again

Yes, skip anything besides those listed. Assuming your unit is at defaults there is no need to touch them.

Thanks for the reply. One last question. If I leave all parameters the same, can I set sp1 to any value and controller will control +/- 2 F. So if sp1 would be set to 64 would heat come on at 62 & off at 64 and cool on at 66 and off and off at 64?

Thanks

That is correct.

I followed the designs provided by TomSD and Revvy. I recently relocated to Ireland and easily 90% of the time went to sourcing parts. It's a little ugly and the next one I make will be cleaner but the controller seems to be working well. I'm using a ceramic bulb for heat and I have a PC fan in a small enclosure to try to prevent stratification. With a little luck I'll be back brewing next week.

Cheers to everyone who contributed to the thread.

Jon
