I am trying to setup the Phoenix board. I am using the RIMS Direct Fire hardware profile, which has the heat pins below,

#define HLTHEAT_PIN 12
#define MASHHEAT_PIN 13
#define KETTLEHEAT_PIN 14

Where do these pins on the actual board? Do they map directly to 12v output pins 12, 13 and 14 on the board?

And then also under each profile then does 1 map to pin 1 on the board and so on?

This pins in the hardware profile are ATMEGA pins, not bord pins. HLTHEAT MASHHEAT and KETTLEHEAT should be the first 3 pins starting from closest to the USB port. The 4th pin should be the ALARM Pin. The rest of the pins are actually through a shift register, so they do not have a direct pin assignment in the profile.

Thanks!

Is there an easy way to turn on the ports to test that I have everything hooked up correctly?

The first 4 there isn't an "easy" way to test. I suggest a test program/recipe and just run through it. The other 16 can be tested in the Valve Profile screen.

It does somewhat depend on what you mean by "easy" but there are two ways I can think of if your temp probes are connected:

1. Connect your LCD/encoder and change the setpoint for each of your kettles to something more than the current temp
2. Plug into your computer and connect to it over serial. Send the btnic command "X<tab>[index]<tab>[setpoint]". I believe the setpoint needs to be multiplied by 100 to remove the hundredths place.

Alternatively you could load test troller and it should cycle through those outputs.

Im out of town, but I may be able to figure something else out when I get back on Sunday, I know I have done this before myself.

Good luck!

By "easy" I was hoping for an on/off setting somewhere in the menu. Might have to brush up on c/c++ skills and develop it.
