You certainly could do it that way.

Ok...

I still don't have a clue regarding the buzzer.
Again - What buzzer???

Regarding the switches, please take a look at this post that I made in another thread.

Ok.
I'm not aware of a way to trigger the buzzer using the BCS system. With a PID the alarm function is built into it.

Ok thanks.. and thanks for the explanation on the switches. Makes a bit more sense now, but you say that for this application you want all positions n/o. Is there a situation where you would want them 2 n/o and 1 n/c as they are sold? Just curious

I'm not sure I understand your question. Where did you source the switches from? Auber Instruments? If so, they can be ordered to your specific configuration needs.

With a 3 position switch (center off) the N/C modules behave in a totally different manner than one would normally expect.

I was asking in reference to this. I was just curious why they wouldnt be sold with the additonal no mudule assembled instead of as an addon-

Don't know. I'm not the vendor.

Call them and ask. I think they might accomodate your request for assembled switch configurations.

The only way to trigger the buzzer with bcs is to install another SSR. I came across this in my own build. I luckily had a small spare SSR I used to wire it in. Since the buzzer is 110v, the BCS won't be able to control it directly. In fact, BCS was designed to use an audible sound through the computer, not a physical buzzer.

Kosmo, if you need more visuals as to how your wiring up P-Js schematic with BCS, I may be able to help. When I built mine I had tried to go off my own schematic, but wound up with a hybrid of mine and P-Js after the way I had planned didn't perform as I would have liked it to.
