Home made PID temp Controller
« on: May 29, 2017, 11:45:38 am »
PID Controller. Needed to get more accurate temperature control so I build a PID controller that is very accurate. Just tested it on a one hour test and I am very happy with it. Maybe I can still fine tune a bit more.

Looks good.  I looked up the price of one of those on Amazon just now - close to $150, not including a TC or any additional parts, etc.   

I did my own with an Auber PID several years ago.  The PID was $45 and with a K-type TC, an SSR and a few other things to make it all work the total cost was around $75.

Your controller look great. The Auber PID is not available in South Africa so I made my own. Will give it a good test next week when I plan to smoke again.
