Many of us on Hearth.com are using the Arduino microcontroller to monitor and control our boiler systems. This page is for discussing the controller system and as a guide to things we've done.
(Arduino Home Page)
perl script and arduino sketch by member mwk1000 to monitor temperature from the arduino:
Updated version in use on Ubuntu 9.10 with updated Sketch "TankControl_v5p"
The controller is being used in many points of a boiler system:
-Monitoring temperature at various points of the system
-Monitoring stack temp, could be used for secondary combustion chamber also
-Control the circ pumps, zone valves, dump zones (with power)
Below are some typical components used in these systems.
Serial Enabled LCD
1-Wire Temperature Sensors
Solid State Relay Board
