PID-Driven Profile Roasting
LCS v2 includes an enhanced PID-driven profile roasting feature. It allows you to dial in a baseline profile that can be run at different batch sizes, or on different Loring roasters, and get consistent results. This is achieved through a combination of carefully defined charge temperatures and burner settings that prepare the roast for the turn around. The PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) control then takes over, actively monitoring bean temperature, and automatically increasing / decreasing the burner percentage to follow the baseline curve. This happens multiple times per second to achieve a predetermined bean temperature at a given time. This results in much more fine-grained temperature control, and repeatability of roast results regardless of batch size.
