    Upgrading panel for behmor roaster

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Has anyone upgraded the behmor 1600 to 1600plus by changing the panel?

    Is it worth it or overrated?

    I've read a lot of information on the upgrade. The opinion of people who have had the old and actually upgraded to the new is of interest to me. I probably have to order it from australia, it's impossible to get in europe...

    How about the opinion of those who chose not to upgrade and resorted to a controlled power level mod? Would that be of interest to you?

    Well if you chose not to upgrade I would like to hear about your mod. Please tell!

    Not really a beginner mod but sounds interesting. How does it work?

    It is a simple variable power level controller. Use it with P1 auto on the Behmor 1600 or P5 manual on a Behmor Plus. You will have 0% to 100% heat level with no steps in between. If you think this mod is not easy, you will find that upgrading the panel is a bit more complicated.

    Ok now I get your idea. So you choose one p-botton to mod and then you can regulate power externally. Nice! Do you have pics and diagrams to follow?

    All what you need is what I posted on the other thread. You can decide how you want to mount the SSVR+Potentiometer. I have mine mounted on a board externally.

    Sorry it's in storage. I bring my Behmor out only when I roast every 3 weeks. Just roasted a few days ago. FWIW, a picture won't be of much help.

    Finally I got my upgrade panel and one hour and about 30 small screws later I did a successful self test. Yeah! Now I look forward to more control over my roasts in my trusty behmor.
