My PID Controller I just finished

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone I just finished this thing https://imgur.com/a/DrmHR

 

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