A wise digital reflow hotplate with CircuitPython #CircuitPython @bradanlane « Adafruit Industries – Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers!

Bradán Lane has constructed a wise digital reflow soldering hotplate, programmed in CircuitPython.

The aluminum block is 8x4x0.75 inches and has two 250W (6mm * 150mm) cartridge heaters. There’s a thermocouple on the underside.

The person interface makes use of my pre-built LumosStick – a 7×40 neopixel parallel pushed matrix, 2 edge tact buttons, and a buzzer and pushed by an ESP32-S2 and working CircuitPython.

The LumosStick is on the high and the tact buttons are prolonged out to the 2 arcade fashion buttons for the person interface.

I used the Adafruit studying information for SPI to learn the thermocouple.

I used the Adafruit FancyLED library to show the temperature worth with a gradient so the colour – along with the numeric worth – implies the warmth.

See the undertaking on Twitter and the code on Gitlab.

Cease breadboarding and soldering – begin making instantly! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and extra. Construct initiatives with Circuit Playground in a couple of minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming website, be taught pc science utilizing the CS Discoveries class on, leap into CircuitPython to be taught Python and {hardware} collectively, TinyGO, and even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Categorical is the most recent and greatest Circuit Playground board, with help for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a strong processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed obtain and transmit, two buttons, a swap, 14 alligator clip pads, and plenty of sensors: capacitive contact, IR proximity, temperature, mild, movement and sound. An entire vast world of electronics and coding is ready for you, and it matches within the palm of your hand.
