Behmor Plus Upgrade Kit
About Behmor Plus Upgrade Kit
FREE GROUND SHIPPING ITEM
We are accepting pre-orders of this item which we expect to arrive about mid July. This Behmor Plus Upgrade Kit will enable you to convert your existing Behmor 1600 into a Behmor 1600 Plus. The Behmor 1600 Plus roaster is being introduced into the US market in late summer 2014 and the only changes between it and its predecessor, which it will replace, is a new Control Board (aka PCB) that will provide additional roasting controls and information. The PCB will allow home roasters to switch between the original automatic profiles and new manual settings. Users will be able to read thermistor and exhaust temperatures and also switch between two drum speeds.
We will be selling the Behmor 1600 Plus for $369 ($399 MSRP) but this upgrade kit at $49.95 coupled with your existing 1600 roaster will equal less. However, you will need to do the conversion yourself, a fairly simple and straightforward process if you are at all handy. Instructions are included and will also be available here shortly, so that you can see what steps are required.
SETTINGS WHEN IN MANUAL MODE
Do you need to upgrade? If you have an existing Behmor 1600, you are happy with it and see no need to have manual overrides, than there is no need to upgrade by purchasing this upgrade kit or even a new roaster. You can continue to use the 1600 Plus just as did the 1600 when in its automatic (standard) mode. There are no other differences between these models.
Installation videos are now available on Youtube:
All the time: Auto or Manual 1) Press C (for crack as in first) and it resets timer according to weight to our “Rosetta Stone” times which are associated with approximate time it takes to go from the first crack of 1C to start of 2C. It is merely an approximation. 2) Auto Safe/ Unattended Switch – at 75% into set time of a roast the timer will start blinking un:30..29, 28 etc.. The user has 30 seconds to press START otherwise it will automatically go into cool flashing err7.
