Reflow Oven Controller Shield

Most of us simply can’t afford an industrial reflow oven and this pain was also felt by the folks over at Rocket Scream Electronics.  So armed with an idea and some help from the Adafruit Reflowduino sample code, the Reflow Oven Controller Shield was born.  The shield is based off the familiar MAX6675 Thermocouple Amplifier and the PID library written by Brett Beauregard.

Toss in a few solid sate relays (SSR) and a K-Type Thermocouple, like the ones Adafruit has here, and your good to go. I like the idea of a standalone PID controller as it’s one less PC controlled device to worry about.

 


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

    That’s interesting. I wouldn’t mind building a one off.

  2. This is pretty handy! We’ve come up with a similar concept for sous vide cooking, which in fact would work pretty well for a solder reflow oven. The kit is $80, but includes SSR, heatsink, enclosure and ATMega with Arduino bootloader. We’re limited to 10 A (1200 W), though it could be pushed to 25 A if a fan is used to circulate air. Check it out! http://lowereastkitchen.com . We’ve had some classes at NYC hackerspaces (you can see them at our blog http://qandabe.com )
