A couple months ago Hamster put together this wonderful project to make a “software-less” PCB Reflow Oven controller. This is a hardware only solution that should be very robust and responsive, there is no software to go awry!
As is fitting for a PCB reflow oven project Hamster made a batch of the controller boards so others could replicate his design and was kind enough to send them to us to give away for free! So if you want to make your own FPGA controlled Reflow Oven then just drop us a comment in your next Gadget Factory order and request that we throw one of these controller Wings in your order. Thanks Hamster!
Now for some pictures:
Here is the Reflow Oven setup in action
And here is a picture of the free Reflow Oven Wing (Just ask for one in the comment section of your next Gadget Factory order.)
