In this post we learn how to scavenge discarded microwave oven parts for making a useful soldering iron heat controller circuit which can then be used for maintaining controlled heat […]
Controlling heat of the unit could be fundamentally done by employing triac or SCR based chopper designs or through thermostat based cut off circuits.
Semiconductors like triacs specifically become suitable when a continuously variable heat control is required such as for resistive heaters.
However the same can be also applied by using thermostats with sensors like thermistors or thermocouples, designed to cut off the AC mains at a desired preset threshold, and switch it ON again when the temperature returns back to normal.
This category brings you a compilation of mains operated heater control circuits. The AC input could be from your home mains outlet at 220V or at 120V depending on the particular country specification, or in an industrial complex from 3 phase 440V lines.
The designs presented below show how to control temperature of a given gadget or appliance using the explained circuit ideas either automatically or through manual switching.
