I have been testing an actuator automated valve using the Artisan PID. This controls the gas to the burner on a Sivetz fluid bed roaster.
My question is regarding the Duty at the start of the roast which always seems to start at zero rather than the minimum set in the control dialog, obviously has no effect until reaches the minimum duty in the configured control range.
The character of the Sivetz requires duty to start at max and work back the other way. Can the Duty be made to be 100% initially when control is turned on?
Is there a way to get the duty working inside the min to max range only?
I would need help with my combination of the Coffee-tech/FZ94 and Artisan on Surface Pro7.
For a few weeks now, the BT is no longer displayed or recorded in the software, which of course makes everything pointless (it has worked before for months.)
The roaster works and shows perfectly everything. I have already reinstalled software and driver (FTDI VCP / 188.8.131.52 Windows X64) - unfortunately without success.
Does anyone have any idea?
Thank you very much,
I'm having trouble connecting an Extra Device (RTD for MET) to Artisan.
My Huky has 3 x PT1000 RTD probes connected to 3 separate TMP1200 RTD
Phidgets. On the VINT HUB, BT goes into port 2, ET into 3 and MET into 4.
BT and ET work fine using the Machine settings or VINT TMP 1200 2x RTD.
I then tried to set up MET as an Extra Device but don't know which one to
choose. I've tried extra device "Phidget Hub IO Digital 45" (i.e. 4 for the
MET going into port 4 on the Hub). I tried the "Phidget TMP1200 1xRTD A"
as well, but that didn't work. Boxes for LCD 1 and Curve 1 are checked.
Which Extra Device should I use for a PT1000 connected to Port 4 on the
HUB? Or should I move it to another port?
I am getting read to roast soon and was wondering the best practice if I take say 12oz of one bean and 7oz of another as that is all I have left. If I do the roast at 19oz, then I have -7 of bean one and 7 of bean 2, so do you recommend I manually adjust at that point?

Could anybody tell me how to set up the alarm function correctly?
There is a menu of alarms function and I tried a couple of different
But neither pop-up nor beep works by all means.
What I want to do is something like below.
Until the roaster is fully preheated, I'd like to do something else
without watching the roaster.
Then, I expect the beep sound can tell me when.
I am using Cormorant CR600 roaster with Phidget, by the way.
I am always appreciating Artisan, it's so useful and essential for my
please keep the discussion on the list or book a private consulting hour with me.

Menu Config >> Events, 1st tab, at the bottom of the dialog "Auto CHARGE" and "Auto DROP". Note again that those mechanisms require about 20sec of recording before the even and they will trigger after the event and set the marker in retrospect correctly.
> Also if I do start before 30 secs before charge will artisan correct the time to accurately calculate dry maillard dev time and %
Artisan sets the time to 0:00 at CHARGE, whether this event is set manually via the corresponding button or the "Auto CHARGE" heuristic.
Indeed the profile you attached lacks the CHARGE event. You can easily add it by right-click on the BT at the point where it should be set. Note that this is also possible during the recording to replace a misplaced event.
Hope this helps,
PS: Consider donating to the project, especially if you use Artisan in a commercial setting. Thanks!

Worked ok in the past. I have included current screen shot.

I have recently changed some of the filters to analyze the curves and try to distinguish between data and noise if that could be the issue.
