    BruControl: Brewery control & automation software

    I have 2 RP-3 connected to a single ESP32 this way, and sometimes on power-up I have to disconnect one before the ESP becomes reachable, then connect it and all works fine... the ESP32 is powered via USB, and I need to ensure I am using the 3.3v pin... multiple other ESP32 variants with...

    Interesting... Atmel ATMega32U4 in a PiZero form factor... not sure if it will get any traction.... but interesting.... https://shop.atmegazero.com/products/atmegazero-header-pins-included

    yes the code specified does not inherently lie within BC... but as mentioned in the post, we probably are better off this way:

    you mean like this back in 2017? edit: never mind the 'preview', it is not the actual post I linked, just the top of the page. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/threads/brucontrol-brewery-control-automation-software.624198/page-55#post-8556372

    Am I the only one wondering for 4 days what 45O is on an ESP32???

    pretty happy with progress today, have temp and Tilt SG reading in rudimentary form... calling it quits and walking to one of the 7 breweries within a 1/4 mile.. wish list? I would like to mirror, rotate 90 degrees, and be able to send the degree symbol, in that order... [start] new string...

    this script seems to work pretty good... [start] new string fermtemp1 new string fermtemp2 new string fermtemp3 new string CC [loop] CC = "2" display "E8" 0 CC CC = "temp data" display "E8" 0 CC display "E8" 1 CC display "E8" 2 CC display "E8" 3 CC fermtemp1 = "FV1 Temp" DisplayText fermtemp2...

    new script resets the variable to "temp data" for a short period then re-writes(you know, per the manual), so I get all three lines every time now, but it still overwrites some digits without clearing: [start] new string fermtemp1 new string fermtemp2 new string fermtemp3 new string CC CC =...

    with BruControl.45M.M5STACK.ESP32.W.bin loaded... no dice with 45N.. I get this once in a while, but not always... sometimes I only get one line to display (it seems to work best if I run the "test text"/"hello World" loop I have in a different script first, stop it, then run this...

    I got it 'working'... display is mirrored, using only about 240x240, have to power cycle the display to get it to clear the screen, etc... I will tinker a bunch more...

    I may tinker with it being standalone, not like I can't switch it back to BC if you get a bug to make it work.... I will crawl the m5 search results in this thread to see any potential differences, and tinker... thanks! edit - Looks like Pinouts are the same... M5

    OK, here is my LOLIN D32 Pro V2.0.0 , with the 2.4" TFT that I got on ali for $22.35 delivered. I burned 'BruControl.45N.ESP32.W.bin' firmware to it and it stayed at all white screen. I then burned the 'BruControl.45M.M5STACK.ESP32.W.bin' firmware to it and got this screen. I know it is low...

    yes, it was operating, but graphs were 'temporary', any change wiped them out... I am all good now, but I have not updated firmware yet, will do that tomorrow. The great news is that the PID is acting MUCH more like a PID than it was before the BC upgrade will try to test on the weekend...

    My bad, I interpreted 'this package' to mean the BC 1.1.9 package, not the SQL2012 package... all good now....

    BruControl: Brewery control & automation software

    OK, I renamed Data.mdf to data.mdf.old, restarted the computer, and looked in the directory, just the Data.mdf.old with a timestamp of 1:14PM existed... I started BC1.1.9, and watched the folder... within seconds, a new Data,.mdf appeared, but not with a current timestamp of something like...

    OK, I am remote, so I carefully did the migration to 1.1.9 via VNC, using SQL2012 I get an error in the log: 12:05:08.477: Opening database: DataSource=(LocalDB)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=C:\Users\POS_User\Documents\BruControl\Data\Data.mdf;IntegratedSecurity=True 12:05:08.550: Exception while...

    OK, will flash one of my megas with the new Firmware and find some time to do the upgrade to 1.1.9, I thought you pulled it a while back due to a major issue... currently I have a PWM output device and a PID on the same pin, pin 3, and when I enable one it disables the other(manual PWM has...

    That is what I expect to see when I hook it up to serial and turn on the PID debug, but right now it is powered from the USB inside the panel, and dragging a laptop over is a royal pain... looking at the automation direct PLC's , but looks like they have same 256k limit as mega???

    BruControl: Brewery control & automation software

    1.1 build 4, no clue what firmware is on Mega, probably been a year since I upgraded it... forget how to check firmware over ethernet, but %1 from comm window in BC does not show anything.. blues are the same thing.. the left orange is the PID output value, the right is the PID Input value...
