Climate Controller

Measures temperature and/or humidity

Climate Controller
This project provides the ability to control two separate devices, such as an electrical heater and an extraction fan, based on the measured humidity and temperature. Despite the modest number of components, this circuit does offer a large number of settings and is even equipped with a serial interface for communication with your PC.

Temperature range: –40°C to +125°C, resolution 0.1°C Humidity settings range: 0% – 99%, resolution 1% Setting range for temperature hysteresis: max. 5°C, resolution 0.1°C Setting range humidity hysteresis: max. 10%, resolution 1% Outputs can be controlled by combinations of higher or lower temperature than the threshold and/or higher or lower humidity than the threshold Adjustable continuation time after the temperature and/or humidity threshold has been passed, in the range from 1 to 99 minutes (separately adjustable for each output) Optionally switch on each output separately after an adjustable period from 1 to 99 hours of inactivity; the output then stays on for the above-mentioned continuation time Option to switch on one or both outputs for 1 to 99 minutes after the circuit is powered on Display of the status of the outputs and the actual temperature and humidity and the option of switching the outputs on and off remotely using the RS232 interface
