1 Linked Thermostat Alan Diamond Ravi Patil

2 Objectives  Temperature sensing device  Multizone capabilities (two)  Heating and Cooling operation  Personal computer software interface  Internet accessible

3 Applicable Skills  Data Acquisition  Feedback System  Sensor Calibration  AC/DC Circuit Design  Internet Connectivity  JAVA, HC-12 Coding  Project Experience

4 Temperature Sensing  Radio Shack Model 103- AT 25°C)  ±.3°C Precision  -50°C to 110°C Range  Application Range 20°C to 40°C (68°F to 104°F)  Within application range, linear voltage- temperature relationship

5 Temperature Sensing Using the Steinhart equation and the provided specifications, one can obtain the output voltage of a thermistor. A= x10 -4 B= x10 -4 C= x10 -7

6 Heating Unit  Household light bulb with lamp fixture  Standard 75W light bulb  12VDC activated 10A relay  Activated by HC-12 5VDC signal  Relay driven by common emitter ckt  Relay connected to AC signal from wall outlet

7 Cooling Unit  Utilizes 2 CPU fans per zone  110mA, 33W 12VDC fan  One draws in airflow, the other pulls out airflow  Fans driven by common emitter ckt

8 Zone Construction  10”x10”x10” cube  Plexiglass material  Sensors in front  Heating in back  Cooling in sides  Wires through back

9 System Schematic

10 Serial Interface  Standard RS232 serial port  Interfaced with JAVA  Sun Javax.comm package Provides serial port class

11 Preliminary User Interface  PC software interface  Set and view zone temperatures  Accessible over the internet using remote web server

12 System Power Consumption  120VAC wall-powered system  Heating requires 75W  Cooling requires 1.3W  HC-12 requires minimal power

13 Project Testing  Sensor calibration – received thermistor voltage versus visual thermometer reading ( ± 2°F )  Correct heating/cooling functionality according to current temperature  Web server integration  Separate component testing  Full system integration testing
