Wanted to add to this thread ... not sure if I am doing anything wrong, but I wanted to create a very simple profile for curing special paint for sublimation printing onto metal plate. It's a simple process - cure in the oven for 20 minutes at 160 deg. C.
So I used this:
Curing // first row is Profile Name
3, 160, 0 // Step Setpoint to 160, wait 0 seconds
2, 0, 0 // Wait for PID Input to cross setpoint
127, 0, 5 // buzz for 5 seconds
3, 160, 1200 // Step setpoint to 160 and wait 20 minutes
3,30,0 // Step setpoing back to 30 and cool down
127, 0, 5 //buzz for 5 seconds
2, 0, 0 //Wait for PID Input to cross setpoint
So I uploaded the profile to the unit and put the plates into the oven for curing.
It believe it worked fine for the 20 minutes (I was out of the room at the time) but after the allotted time instead of staying at low temperature, the oven just turned on and stayed on a full power (to 250 deg. C), which was a bit of a disaster for my plate.
Is this normal behaviour? Is my file missing something? Is there any command that can be placed into this file that stops the pid and switches everything off? That's what I need!
What would really really help is some good documentation. I read in other places that you are looking for the right wiki. Why not just put the docs into a pdf and post it on your web site? Keep it simple!
