This is an PID thermostat controller with built in ac dimmer for resistive loads and Sd-card datalloging support
The purpose of this is to used as an incubator controller
Its based on the ATmega8 of Atmel
The Sensors are the 1-Wire DS18B20 thermometers from Maxim
-2 external measuring thermometers
-Auto measurement the AC mains frequency to adjust the dimmer parameters
-Soft start of the load ( perfect responce with non-inverter gas powered generators )
-Datalloging on SD card ( Not ready yet )

Greetings, congratulations on the project, I would like to experiment with this design but do not get the atmega328, I only get the atmega8 or ATmega88, too much to ask that you compile the program for one of these microcontrollers, Thanks.

i just use a mercury thermostat, tilted at an angle to compensate for the higher temperature required for incubation. now a timed egg roller is something i would be interested in.

Are there any PCB design files for this project ?

I did somthing very similar, i tested it with a light bulb that dims
Just a quick question, i would like to read this "controlled wavform" back into a plc/labview. How would you suggest this be done ?

@Hercules Trapierakis you've turned your parrot into a carnivore!!! DAMN

This is George
there are not to many eggs
it's not even half filled
Not but you can use it here and on America without change the firmware

Hello hercules nice project of yours!!!!!!!
First of all what you intend to do so many birds?Hope to sell them because believe me i have 2 parrots and the one of it is a REAL PAIN IN THE ASS!!!!!Fantastic pcb did you develop it by yourself?Also you say that the circuit reads the ac frequency and it sets the dimmer parameters accordinally.Why is that?I mean the mains frequency isn't stable to your house?
That's for start keep going :-) !!!!!!!!!!!!

@herctrap poor bird...
You did not have something to do with the explosion,,,, did you???

yes i have changed the lamps from 40W to 60W
The main power transformer near my house blown up two days before the incubation
so the bird died from the cold

Herctrap, the writeup is excellent and the PCBs are awesome! The only thing that i am afraid of is this "overkill" temperament of yours... I hope you have installed the correct heating lamps, and that the birds that will come to life will not be roasted :D You did not change the lamps that your grandfather installed, did you :D
What happened with the single egg incubator project? Will you develop the first "chicken of the tube" or not?
HOT in heaven!
