Hi

The first beta release is ready for download and testing. The devices supported at the present time are:

Omega HH806
Omega HH506RA
CENTER 309
Fuji PXR pid
Fuji PXG pid
Other devices will be added in the future.


Download: http://code.google.com/p/artisan/downloads/list

Installation instructions: http://code.google.com/p/artisan/wiki/Installation


There is no user guide or documentation yet, neither a mailing list (too early). Sorry for the lack of documentation. The door is open to people that want to document the software (or for any other reason).

Hi.

Yes the software can use any serial port. However, that does not mean that your controller will work. The PC software (artisan) needs to be programmed first.

You would need at least two readings, one for ET (your controller) and then a second one for BT (the target profile). I use two Fuji PIDs in an RS485 network. One controls ET (and reads ET), and the second one just reads BT.

Cheers

I think I can do this. I retired from Boeing as a process control tech,I have programed up many different types of controllers debuged advanced basic,c++,and ladder logic, Worked out of the MR&D lab for over 12 years. The engineers would have me co work on everything from High tech ovens to autoclaves and robotics. Never had to spend long hours righting code, but I did go to allot of schools on c++ just to make software fixs out in the field. Hope in the future I can contribute to you project.Best regards Rich

Hi again.

Take a look at one of these examples and see if you can make your meter work in the same way (all files are almost the same). Once you make it work, then I'll be glad to incorporate your device as part of the software. The limitation with your controller is that you will only get one reading (the controlling temperature). If you are planning to also control the roaster from the software, then you may need to go deeper.

Hi there ! I am artisan in Italy and with my husband we had the idea of a dfomestic roaster with incredible results. Before contemplating to make it at an industrial level, we wanted to know if someone can help us with approximate figures of number of domestic roasters sold annually in the US. That would help us a lot. Thank you

Will you ever support the wireless thermocouple from Omega, MWTC? I was using serial monitor to decode the 20 2-byte data packet and have most of it done.  The key value like temperature I do have.  This device must also be started by some commands that the Omega TC central software sends it thru the wireless receiver.  I did try Artisan to just see if any of the other Omega devices might work but they don't of course.  I'm guessing that this might not be a good fit with the Artisan but I'm not sure.  It's pretty inexpensive and can send at a 1 reading/sec rate.  

I have written cad cam Visual C++ programs in the past and was going to try my had at this.  I do have a bunch of firmware and EE friends at work that might help but I'm an ME and this isn't something I know yet.  The TC Central data logger is just about useless for anything but collecting the data and while Omega said they might upgrade it....I've waiting a year now so I don't think they will.  Let me know if you think a device like this can be made to work.  I might go take a look at your source.

The higher end version of this device (UWTC) has commands that can be used to quiry the temperature.  I think this one could be made to work a lot easier because if I understand correctly, that's how Artisan gets it's data..it's asks th device for it.  Is that true or an oversimplification?  Thanks

The version 0.6 of Artisan, an open-source software that helps coffee roasters to record, analyze, and control roast profiles, is now available for Windows, OS X and Linux.

https://code.google.com/p/artisan/downloads/list

The most important changes and additions w.r.t. v0.5.x are as follows.
  • Monitoring-only mode reporting readings on LCDs without recording
  • Event sliders e.g. to control the Hottop heater and fan via the HT Roaster Interface
  • Extended alarms triggered by time and temperature on any curve
  • Flexible Modbus RTU support allowing temperature reading and device control
  • Curve smoothing and spike filtering
  • New localizations: Arabic, German, Greek, Spanish, French, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Turkish, Dutch, Chinese and Hungarian
  • Windows installer, and icons on Windows and Linux

See https://code.google.com/p/artisan/wiki/ReleaseHistory for a detailed list of changes and the Artisan blog http://artisan-roasterscope.blogspot.de for details on some of the new features.

We are deeply grateful for the extensive support we received from many of you, especially in translating Artisan's more than 1200 phrases into several languages (more under preparation). We want to thank Frans Goddijn, Brad Collins, Claudia Raddatz, Marcio Carneiro, Ostnes Runar, Yoshida Minoru, David Lahoz, Savvas Kiretsis, Wa'il, Lukas Kolbe, Oliver Schirmer, Kristoffer Johansson, «etin Barut, Rubens Gardelli, Kyle Iseminger, Kalle Deligeorgakis, Matthew Sewell, Carlito Smith, Rich Helms, Carlos Pascual, Ingo, David Trebilcock, Matt Fischler, Jim Gallt, Gunnar Troll, Alex Fan, Piet Dijk, Bertrand Souville, ZoltŠn Kis and many others.

We do not take donations. But if you are using Artisan in a commercial setting, it would make us (and some others) happy if you would donate to Coffee Kids http://www.coffeekids.org/, a non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of life for children and families in coffee growing regions around the world.
