So I took a tamale pot and...

Made what is probably the first heatermeter sous vide cooker. Just not sure how to stir the water yet, but so far it doesn't seem to matter. 20210704_110551.jpg 20210704_110558.jpg 20210704_110606.jpg

Heatermeter is controlling a SSR to a 1500W immersion element. 32qt pot. Water, metal and electricity. What could go wrong?


I like that! I did something similar to control a Slow Cooker for Sous Vide. I made an enclosure for the SSR, but probably can't control 1500W without a Heat Sink. I have the case on Thingiverse Here if you want to make one.

Sweet! I've used HeaterMeters for all sorts of control operations.
  • Sous vide cooking
  • Beer brewing / mash water heating
  • 3D printer nozzle heating
  • PCB SMD hot plate control
  • Heating a power resistor strapped to a CPU cooler to blow warm air instead of cold air to diffuse solder fumes in the winter because my hands get cold
  • Peltier thermoelectric cooler
  • A cold air recirculating fan in a temperature controlled fermentation cooler. HeaterMeter works to cool too! Just "Invert Output".

Hah! I should've known someone had already tried this. My next project is controlling the wood burning stove heating my house. Looking at linear actuators or stepper motors on the drafts.
