### DESCRIPTION

This automatic temperature control system has the ability to monitor and control the temperature of a specified space without human intervention. 

This project uses a PIC microcontroller to automatically control the temperature of an area. This area could be a small plant, a house or any place or device that require a controlled temperature like an incubator (egg) for example. 

The desired temperature setting is entered using a keypad. The temperature of the area is measured using an analog temperature sensor.

The microcontroller reads the temperature continuously and compares it with the desired value. If the desired value is higher than the measured value, then the heater is turned ON to heat the area. If on the other hand the measured value is higher than the desired value, then the fan is switched ON to cool off the area until the required temperature is reached. If the temperature reaches a certain critical value 40?C or higher, the buzzer will sound continuously and an LED will blink_ until the temperature deceases below 40?C.

An LCD display shows the measured temperature continuously.

  • 7 Tips On How To Make Your PCB Entries Stand Out 1.Choose the appropriate color of soldermask and silkscreen for your PCB project. 2.In addition to the PCB images generated by our website, you can upload more photos of the project. 3.The more detailed project’s description is, the better judges and other makers understand it. FYI, it is a good idea to insert a video, currently our platform supports “YouTube” and “Vimeo”. 4.Open for Gerber download and BOM download. 5.Frequently share your entries to your social media and some open source forums, allowing more people to vote your entry, like it, download the Gerber file and also place orders for your work. 6.After uploading your entry, please constantly pay attention to its page. There will be other makers asking questions about your PCB project, and timely responses and multiple interactions will be additional points. 7.We also encourage you to upload more entries about Assistive Technology (AT) by supporting a special award, “AT Maker Prize”. Hope that more makers could contribute to the promotion of Assistive Technology.
