So I upgraded to an eBK using a lot of info from the Kal build. I did my wet test today with the first brew tomorrow. Below are pics and the list of "freebies" from various friends, co-workers and vendors.
HMI control is using FTViewME on my laptop which will eventually (hopefully) be on a stand alone touchscreen as soon as I can get one free\cheap.
Next step is to integrate the RTD I have then eventually turn it into a eHERMS. I'll keep the updates coming...
Freebies (the 2nd brew is for them):
Hoffman NEMA 4 Enclosure (16"x20"x8")
Sub panel (had to cut to size)
DIN rail, Terminal blocks, Copper bus bar
2x 40A SSRs
various wiring (scrap from panel shop)
SLC500 PLC and I/O cards (came with 16 slot rack and other cards, purchased 4 slot rack)
2x Temperature Transmitters (only one shown)
*Disclaimer* I am well aware that not everything in these pics are completely "to code" but...I don't care. I am safe and, well, code doesn't apply. Copy with caution and if you ever feel unsafe or have questions error to the side of caution and call an electrician.
