Extra Device Assignment (V 0.5.0)
There are two new boxes in the Device Assignment that are called ET(x) and BT(x) respectively. These boxes allow you to do the opposite of new extra devices. They assign extra devices to ET or BT.
Say you have only one PID connected as ET but you have no device for BT (buying two PIDs is expensive). You could control ET but then, you could not use the recording buttons because there is no BT device. But if you were to connect a dual thermocouple meter as an extra device, you could take one of the outputs of the meter and make it BT. You would have to put in the BT(x) box for Y3 (the first thermocouple of the dual meter,) or any other Y. Now you have both a controlling PID and also BT.
Question: I have a Center 309 with 4 channels. I use 2 of them now for ET and BT but would like to assign number 3 to a exhaust temperature probe and plot this on the Artisan. Is this possible now?
Answer: To plot the 3th and 4th thermocouples, you need to add an extra device called +309_34
