They've just released an up dated version of this controller in this months
issue of Silicon Chip magazine. Upgraded to include an SCR triggered Triac
for control of the universal motors.
However, the rider in the article includes the warning that the device is
not permitted to control the power to lamps, heaters or radiators as to do
so would contravene the regulations of the N.S.W. Energy Authority and
affiliated state energy authorities.
I've attached a circuit for a legal controller which, although it does
switch the element on and off, does not result in boil-over particularly if
the hysteresis of the on/off cycle is kept high (i.e. about 1-2 degree
centigrade between on and off).
Hope this helps.
- Hi Tony, I'm sorry to say that I have reffled some very big birds feathers
on this one. It was a pleasure and I have gained a lot
from having been on your mailing list.
I will now bow out gracefully and get off the list.let the super hero's let
everybody know how EVERYTHING is done.[in their part of the woods]
Kind regards to you. al
