Homemade Soldering Station 2 (AVR)Author
Hercules Trapierakis
January 15, 2012

PAGE 1 of 5 - Prototyping

As i said is a copy paste project

so i also used a thermocouple pair with the max6675

My iron was an Ersa 15W ( it can reach 310 degrees C - what was i thinking??? )

2 projects on breadboard The readout is correct

Not sure what happened

    • Pictures detailed are not available.
      Hex file download need explain to describe how are created (IDE AVR STUDIO) to prform corect upload, please.

    • Do you think its possible to convert a pitbull turbo charger, pibull x3 (http://www.competitionelectronics.com/retired-rc-products.html), into a digital slodering station ??

    • @Hercules Trapierakis Can you please provide us with the source code? thanks!

    • Hi, good work!

      Can you post a C code of this solder station?
      Sorry, but i've arduino uno, i have flashed a bottloader into atmel 8, and i want to load the scatch on this chip.
      i can't load hex code with arduino, right?

      Hi - could you please provide me with the source code?
      That knob on the front-panel - is that a potentiometer or rotary encoder?

    • hey hiii... please provide me the source code for this as i m using opamp for thermocouple.... so need to apply some changes to it to work out wid pid... thanks....

    • @Pantelis

      use this one: Controller firmware with P = Kp * Error

      the time is selected with R9

    • Hello everybody, i made this circuit but i am stacked to the hardest part of the project, i want to programm the avr. I will make this circuit on the breadboard http://electronics-diy.com/avr_programmer.php but i can't understand witch one hex to use,should i place R5-R9, i have understand what PID is ,but i don't know if its a must. If i use these i will have a better accuracy at the pointed temperature i have select?
      Who can i determine the time that the solder iron will shut down?

    • @Kammenos

      no i haven't

      but Yiannis sais that fair easy to make it

    • @herctrap have you tried this bungard sur tin?

  • At 23 January 2012, 23:46:53 user herctrap wrote:   [reply @ herctrap]
    • @Kammenos



      mine with flx and solder no chemicals


      search for bungard sur tin

    • @herctrap Yes we want a video with the tinning method! ;) ;) I have found some chemicals for chemical tinning, but i can only order large quantities since they are hazard liquids

    • @stij

      yes with a lot of flux and solder

      but i have learned to do it better



      if you want i will make a video next time

    • @stij i suppose with the soldering iron and solder ???

    • how do you tin the pcb board and it is silver?

    • user friendly

      you can set easily the Kp Ki Kd factors


      i actually used it as a P controller only
      i didnt use the pots - i programm it from the software

    • one question, why you used potentiometers to set PID values and temp values? Any particular reason?

    • Let me say that once more: I envy the "auto turn off" function. If i had time to work with my soldering station, i would add it.
