I assume you’ve found the blog where I have detailed my work on selecting the Fuji PID
type (and the help I received from others).
I am sure that you will find others assisting you if you also share, on a blog or a
website, what you already know, what hardware you have, how you connected it exactly and
how you plan to proceed.
Then others can learn from you and those who are currently more advanced than you will
remember things to point out to you and other readers of your reports.
I frequently use the Artisan “background” but not to control the roast. I control the
roast planning by using the Artisan menu to send commands to the Fuji roast controller.
For instance, I just had Artisan tell the roaster to be at 155ºC at 5 minutes, then 3
minutes later at 208ºC for FC, then at 1:20 on 223ºC for ending the roast, aiming at a
roast color between Tonino # 90 and 95 of the beans from Panama.
Let us know where we can see the details of your work!

I was very excited when I first know about Artisan, it is really awesome work, I have
been thinking about writing a similar one long time ago.
I have a D-I-Y hot wind roaster which only support manual operation. Now I want to
upgrade it to support PID control and visual statistics to make it smart :)
It seems that Fuji PXR4 with RS485(modbus) could be the best choice for me. But I cannot
make a decision for the right model (order code) :(
My roaster has a heater and a fan, the PXR4 needs to control both of them.
I know the heater is easy to control for PXR4 (here I choose to use SSR for control
output 1), but the fan speed control is tough here.
The fan is not only for cooling but also spinning beans in the capsule so that beans
could be heated evenly, so the fan should be working all the roasting period by adjusting
the speed level.
So, could artisan meet my current requirement ? Which model of PXR4 should I have?
BTW, I did not find how to use Artisan to start a roast that using the loaded
(background/template) profile, does Artisan support this function now?
Any help would be very appreciate!
Thank you very much!
