    But those are not commonly controllable via modbus either.

    Questions about March Pumps answered by the Factory!

    Ok, if there's no small ones, how linear is flow at lower speeds? Any pump curves? VFD would typically run down to maybe 20-30hz so pump flow at half speed would need to be known. if no info is available, i might look at a pump head and custom machining to a 3phase motor of my choice.

    Questions about March Pumps answered by the Factory!

    Walter, Can you recommend a pump very similar to the 809 or whatever pump most of the guys here are using but with 3phase input? I'm thinking about using a single pump on a 3-tier system but think i might want to use VFD control so i can vary the pump speed. I did find some large pumps in...

    Anyone built their own fridge (from scratch)?

    packaged compressor units aren't that hard to come by. Look at Klondike fridges. I'm considering building one for my house, that would also incorporate corny storage. Packaged evaporator, condensor unit, lineset, done.

    PLC temperature inputs

    M.E. huh? me too. I'm torn between the arduino or the rpi. I'll check into the HMI. I haven't purchased anything yet, i'm hoping to engineer the whole enchilada before i start buying/building. You know the old saying ... fail to plan, plan to fail. :)

    PLC temperature inputs

    I'd like to avoid the expensive add in slot cards that only add 4 temps. I have a DL06 with 3 of them controlling my HVAC in my house, and even buying cards on ebay i have over 500 into just the plc. So i'd like to stay away from add in slot cards. spend the money on motorized ball valves and...

    PLC temperature inputs

    Ok, some research looks like arduino, raspberry pi, and similar controllers talking modbus might be a good way to go.

    PLC temperature inputs

    Aside from my other thread on PLC and hardware interfacing, does anyone have suggestions on cheap/er temperature inputs to a plc? Planning on Automation direct control of SSR/pumps/etc. As industrial controls go, PLCs are great and easy to program, but the inputs other than discrete signals...

    Another "help me with my basement Brewery" thread

    Not true. You can run a sub panel off a subpanel. I've done it. And passed inspection.

    Brew software / hardware integration questions

    Well, i had thought to use a DL-06 for hardware, i don't have any hmi selected yet, but i had thought that a pc with a database and advanced hmi might be a starting point. I thought the c-more was more of a display, but it sounds like Claudius is using it for data storage as well?

    Brew software / hardware integration questions

    Hello, I'm working on designing a new brewstand, and i'm trying to plan ahead for the possible addition of automation. i'm well versed in automation direct products, and have a full legal version of their software. I'd like to better understand how to integrate the hardware side of control...

    Any group buys in Michigan?

    FWIW guys, I'm right in Ypsi for work. If anything happens anyway. Haven't gotten much response though.

    Any group buys in Michigan?

    Ok, i wasn't sure. I haven't seen anyone as low as 40 for 55lb bags. AIH in AA and Taylor is ~55 for 55 lbs. Back to the topic, would it make sense to build a website or something like that where people can put in orders, and once the level gets to a certain amount, it triggers a buy and...
