I know all the public documentation is not enough to duplicate my heating project. I’m so sorry but I have a lot of pending home projects to do because I have a lot of under construction things. If you need some help to understand what I have or how to do something feel free to ask.
Ahir al vespre vaig fer una conferència a la FIB (Facultat d’Informàtica de Barcelona) dins de la UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). En aquesta xerra vaig estar explicant què és i en que es diferència Arduino i Raspberry PI. A més de presentar tot un conjunt de solucions alternatives i experiències en el tema.
Last weekend I worked on setting up home heaters using Panstamp. Panstamp is an Arduino board with Texas Instruments radio. Next winter we’re going to control our home heater using connected internet devices like the laptop, tablet o mobile phones. In this post I only want to share some pictures about the process to install the electronics inside the heaters changing the old electronic boards with new custom ones.
AC/DC transformer, outputs 5V. It’s really cheap, in this case free because I have more than 20 of them from old projects.
A small custom PCB designed and made by Daniel Berenguer, the owner of Panstamp. Thanks again Daniel. I bought the PCBs and parts for around 10€ each one.
TMP36 temperature sensor. It costs about 1,5€ each one.
Solid state relay (SSR) bought in Alied Express web site for less than 5€.
I used a lot of tools, because DIY aren’t my strong hability.
Double-head tape and hot-blue gun are need…
because I want to use a cork base under the PSU and PCB
Parallelization of the last process Using a cutter I got the units SSR setup connecting SSR, PCB and PSU assembling everything on heater side panel finally, mounting side panel on the heater
Next weeks, I’ll come back with this subject to talk about the software part.
