Hello to all,
my name is Antonio and I am the administrator of the forum homebrewers Italian birrabirra and I apologize for my bad English.
I just recently purchased the Raspberry PI model B rev02 with sensors DS18B20 SSR and down to create a control system for my RIMS TUBE 1500W with current 220 Volts DC.
I would need the support and aid in the installation of Elsinore within the Raspberry PI and whether the scheme can also funzioanre for aletrnata current at 220V DC.
Thank you very much by the Italian community of Homebrewers.

Hi Jigen, if you read through the thread you should find discussion on setting up the Pi, I'm not an electrician and I've never seen 220V DC, but providing you have an SSR that works with it you should be fine. The current version of elsinore has a setup tool inbuilt that'll help to walk you through the initial configuration file setup.

I'm not actively working on this at the moment since I'm migrating the development to the beagleboard (I need the analogue IO for volume measurement readings, but this will be fed back to the pi based setup if you use a 1wire Analogue chip)

Thanks for the information.
In Italy we have AC 230V 50 HZ, I was wrong it is not DC.
The SSR should not give me problems with this type of power as I took these from ebay.
So I have to first install Elsinore and then connect the sensors and SSR to the GPIOs?
Who could give me support for the installation of Elsinore?
thanks

Check out page 5 of this thread and read on. Then make sure your Raspberry Pi is configured as a LAMP server. To do this I installed Wheezy then ran the following commands from a terminal.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5
sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client php5-mysql
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
sudo apt-get install git-core

Use git to install elsinore server from this link https://github.com/DougEdey/SB_Elsinore_Server

I added these lines:
sudo modprobe w1-gpio
sudo modprobe w1-therm
to the launch script because I was having trouble getting it to run on boot.

Try to install then post back here if you run into problems.

You shouldn't need the apache/php/mysql lines, or the git line.

I'm going to upload a file that you can install in the modprobe definitions which should fix this.

The command line should come down to

java -jar Elsinore.jar

It would be interesting to have a picture of a card with the system Elsinore + web server already running in dome may download, copy it to the SD card and insert it into the Raspberry PI.
In this way, the system has already ready.
Some good man would be willing to post it?
thanks

Whilst that is possible I do not have the time to maintain a current image and host it. I also don't want people thinking this is easy to use at the moment since its not, there are limitations and bugs still to fix.

It's all 1's and 0's right? easy peezy haha
Do you plan on continuing development? I just picked up on this and would like to look into it. Also going to be working on a project of this nature for my home. It would be replacing my home thermostat, the plan in early stages are a temperature probe in each room with some way to be able to control the temp in each room individually but still maintain using 1 unit. Now I don't mean I would be able to heat one room and cool another. The thought is to be able to use dampers to close off air flow. Might want to use something like this Wireless Thermocouple and RTD Industrial Probe Assemblies. I could see these used on a brew rig as well.
