TinyPLC – Solo

A single channel Programmable Logic Controller for hobby and light industrial applications. Based on the Atmega 328 microcontroller for full Arduino IDE compatibility.  Board measures 2.79 x 1.5 inches

Status: Completed – prototype in process – pre order now!I sell on Tindie

Features:

  • Atmel Atmega328P-PU Microprocessor
  • Arduino IDE compatible
  • 6 pin ISP header for programming
  • 4 amp rating -limited by trace thickness and width on PCB
  • Relay is rated for 10A.
  • Features an input header connected to an Analog pin on the chip. This increases versatility for custom applications.

Reason Developed: I needed a way to economize the use of my water recirculating pump while ensuring I had hot water in the house.  I designed and built this circuit to run for 75 seconds and then wait for 450 seconds.  I wanted to be sure I could modify it in the future if the need arose.
