The tilt hydrometer does look interesting. And $100 is probably reasonable for a complete
product. But... hacking is fun... and the LightBlue Bean that the tilt is based on is $24.
But... a 3 axis acc...

Ok so the first step was to open my brand new Worm gear motor and clean out all that NASTY
grease that i don't want to get into my grains! Next up is to mount it inside an enclosure so
as to not get t...

That just look like the zero crossing detecting opto coupler (that triggers the triac), to me.
Posted in thread: Inkbird SSR ? on 10-10-2016 at 08:27 PM
There is no guarantee that the fake Foteks can't handle current either. It all depends on the
actual triac used (and you need to open, and destroy the SSR in the process, to find out).
Granted, the on...

It sure looks like a Fotek clone. I would be careful with any Fotek looking SSR and a load
larger than 10A. No matter what it says on the front, most of them seem to have a 10 amp
TRIAC.Haven't tried ...

@FloppyKnockers: You're right. I wasn't aware of that... (I hesitate to say less standard, so
I'll go with up and coming) acronym.I'd absolutly love to hear about all your innovative work,

I don't think that would qualify as a PID (because it's not), but as the lid is mostly round,
I'd call it the "Floppy disc controller".Looks awsome. And nice job documenting it for

@jimdkc: The 555 is indeed a classic chip :) The thread I linked to (slow PWM LED hacking) IS a
555 based circuit, but it's improved. The 555 generate a sawtooth signal, which is fed to
