temperature regulator
« on: July 03, 2013, 20:54:43 PM »
i am building a digital temperature regulator for a water tank. it works alright except of a weird problem that prevents the triac to fire up.
the problem is that the mcu does not deliver 5v to the opto. it delivers ~1V. when i disconnect the mcu pin and measure it unconnected it delivers 5v. if i put 5v directly to the opto it fires up. i switched the mcu and the opto with new ones but i still got the same probem. wtf is going on here? can you give me a hint what might be the problem? never ran in smth like this before.

it was a software problem... forgot to call the init procedure... what a shame
