Ferment Schematic


Ferment controller Schematics

This covers the basic wiring for the fermentation controller. Depending on the solid state relay a transistor switch circuit to +5V may be required. Not all SSR's will work properly connected directly to the Photon output pin.
Use caution when working with 110V AC power!!!


Fermentor Photon Code

Code that will run on the Particle Photon.

Fermentor Web App

Web app developed using Angular and Firebase for hosting and database.
