Subject: La Marzocco Fuji PID Settings
I was trolling on EspressoParts.com a few months ago and discovered
that if you purchase a PID kit from them they will include a "set of
parameters to place into the Fuji PID unit for best results when used
on La Marzocco espresso machines."

I contacted them asking if this parameter set could be purchased
separately and received no answer.

I currently have a Fuji PID attached to my La Marzocco and I am
wondering if anyone here has a good set of parameters for use with
this unit. I honestly have never changed the factory default
parameters on this unit.

TIA,

Greg,

My machine is a 3 group so it is possible that your settings will not
work as well as they could, but I think they will probably be better
than no tweaking at all.

I will find out.

The URL I found the information at is here:

http://static.zoovy.com/merchant/espressoparts2/EP_PID_INSTRUCTIONS.pdf

This appears to be the one from EspressoParts which has the settings
on the last page.

Thanks!

This may be helpful on tuning a PID.

Hi there:

You didn't mention if your machine was a 2-group or 3. The parameters
that I published were for a 2-group. I'd imagine that they will be
different for a 3-group. A 4-group will be similar to a 2, since they
share brew boiler sizes. Use the parameters with a grain of salt. I
don't claim that they're the gospel or anything.

-Greg

A true measure of your appreciation of alt.coffee would include
posting the tiny URL of the post to the 'group. ;-)

I think they were originally posted on a.c, so search google groups:
PID Fuji Marzocco Scace
