My PID Controller I just finished

  1. Hey everyone I just finished this thing

    I hope to use this thread to help anyone who wants to build one, because when I was looking to build one there was not really any how to's. Fortunately im very mechanically inclined and have a strong grasp on electrical systems (i fix smashed up mercedes for a living) so I was able to figure it out as a went. Hopefully anyone thats interested in making these i can provide some insight into how its done.

    so heres a parts list, i think i got everything from amazon because im lazy

    -AGPtek® Dual Digital F/C PID Temperature Control Controller TA4-SSR With 2 Alarms (this model outputs dc voltage on pins 3 and 4 so connect the fan to this)

    Amico AC 10A 250V IEC320 C14 Inlet Module with Neon Lamp Rocker Switch and Fuse Holder (I used a computer power supply cable to plug into this, from the back of the outlet run the power to the switch, then from there to pins 1 and 2 and polarity doesn't matter)

    -The gray plate its all mounted to is a 6x6x6 outdoor waterproof junction box from home depot.

    -k type thermocouple (2 wire) this goes to pins 7 and 8
    Brushless DC Blower Fan 12V HT-07530D12 75x75x30mm 2pin Two ball bearing (this connects to pins 3 and 4)

  2. Looks good man  [​IMG]   PID controllers are cheap & easy to build yourself & really handy. Nice job  [​IMG]

    here is one i built out of the same controller. i put mine in a box and waterproofed it. im running a 10 cfm fan on 110 volt with an ssr.

  4. what are you running off the SSR?

    running the 110 volt fan for the firebox.
  6. ah, im just running a DC fan off the output for a SSR
