    Thanks for the behind-the-scenes look - I'm glad to see someone having success with a setup as janky as my own.

    Agreed. My holy grail of a PLC setup would be a mechanical/analog stand-alone system with a fuzzy logic controller piggybacking and just adjusting parameters as needed. If the controller dies, everything else still works as normal, it just doesn't respond to unexpected circumstances. Ideally, its primary function would be to sound an alarm and maybe shut things off, if something did go wrong. One of these days...

    Joe,

    Ive had everything to build such a system for years now... PLC, sensors, drip irrigation system, low pressure misters, solenoid valves etc etc etc

    A true closed loop process contol with feeback

    But this system just works so well and it's so "comfortable" .... one day Ill put it all together, ummm maybe LOLOLOL

    I've been dreaming about such a system - does that count?

    Hey eou, not really..... even though Ron pokes me in the ribs occasionally about building my ubber system, Im still old school heli ghetto ;-)

    It's hard to take that step when the current system just works so well.... Im a big fan of simple. Its easy (and fun) to overcomplicate things but at the end of the day... parts that arent there cant fail
