NEW GUIDE: EZ Make Oven, a really easy no mod reflow oven #AdafruitLearningSystem #PCB #Adafruit #PyPortal @Adafruit @cogliano

A new guide today in the Adafruit Learning System: EZ Make Oven

A reflow oven is used for soldering of surface mount electronic components onto PCBs. In the past, reflow ovens were large, expensive and limited to commercial units. With the popularity of the DIY movement, reflow ovens have come down in size and price to make them affordable to hobbyists. Some of these are available in kit form. Unfortunately, these kits require modifying a toaster oven’s high voltage wiring and can take time to assemble.

The EZ Make Oven is just that: it’s an easy to make reflow oven that requires no high voltage wiring and does not require any disassembly of the oven. The reflow oven can be put together in just a few hours with just some minimal soldering required. Other features of the EZ Make Oven include:

  • Graphical display of solder profile graph
  • Display of current stage and overlay of oven temperature with solder profile
  • Beep notifications for each reflow stage
  • Beep notification when reflow is complete and oven door can be opened.

Since the EZ Make Oven uses CircuitPython, these features are also available:

  • Install new code easily with drag and drop updates
  • JSON based solder profile files
  • New solder profiles can be created using a text editor
  • Drag and drop new solder profiles
  • On-the-fly code customization (no compiling needed)

If you’d like a great reflow oven without doing any toaster modifications, programming, etc., this is the project for you!
