    EM6900 Programming

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ok all you current and x EM6900 users..

    I am looking for info as the the advanced programming steps.

    Assumed.... Yea it got me ;D

    That the EM6910 and EM6900 would be the same / very close...

    Of the two boxes of parts that I have obtained from a recent request for dead units etc I am observing different things. But have no SB EM6900 user manual... The Links on the SB site no longer exist and need to confirm / refute my assumptions...

    Then I can be sure as to FAULTY controller board or NOT.

    IIRC there were no advanced programming options on the original 6900s.
    A few late models and refurbs had 6910 internals and they had 6910 internals with the options.

    Ill have a read.

    When testing the element core to sheath I get the same reading as when the probes are not touching anything.

    It looks like an error code or similar as it doesnt mean anything to me and I have to find the instruction book to check its meaning.

    That is GOOD...

    Not a true test... But good.

    Some might say why not 100%. The issue is that the usual test with a multimeter is at low voltage and potential... Thus a meter with a a tenth (0.10) of a mm gap will show OPEN cct. Yet a 680v (240Rms) may well have the potential to cross that air gap.. Add a bit of moisture and carbon dust and the normal meter might say 300meg.. Apply a megga and it might test as good as a SHORT.

    That is why mega testers usually have a 250 / 500 and 1000 v test ranges to ensure that the insulation resistance; is true and realistic.

    And yes, I have on the odd occasion measured and found OC with a normal meter and then smoked the unit when turning it on... Dont take chances any more.
