My goal is to run it with brewtroller live via the Ethernet module.

Great to hear that you managed to get it working! Have you made any progress that you could share?

Cheers, R

Default Brewtroller Progress

Hi Everyone, I have continued to work on my MEGA with Brewtroller running but I am running out of patience. The screen boots up and the Brewtroller shows on the screen unfortunately the Encoder just will not work. Anyone else had success getting the encoder to work? The link below shows the configuration I am using. I also have been unsuccessful using the ethernet shield.

Check the FastPin library to ensure that all the pins you are using are available to the Encoder library.

I have got the display working correctly and have sort of got the encoder registering too, My encoder is erratic at best and does what it wants, i presume this is because it is a cheapo one from china with a board attached to it. I might order a better one from somewhere and test that.

More likely a software issue. Interrupt based encoder routines work a lot better, from memory only 1 of the encoder pins is triggering interrupts the way it's set up by default.

People, anyone has a wiring diagram to connect LCD (I2C) on arduino mega? My setup is a e-herms, with 2 heater element (HLT and kettle). I recirculate wort with a chugger pump. So, I will construct my own Brewtroller on an Arduino Mega.

What is the correct version to this board: BrewTroller or OpenTroller HWProfiles file?

Thanks,

Fabiano

Who implemented brewtroller on arduino mega, could you share your code?

Thks

Fabiano,

I believe your going to need to setup an actual I2C interface, I'd do some searching on I2C and arudino to get that figured out. The cable between the actual brewtroller boards and the I2CLCD on the back of your LCD (if thats what your doing) is 4 wires. If your not using the I2CLCD backpack, then its really up to you how you want to connect your LCD. If that makes sense.
