First I have a civil engineering degree with a double minor
- CS (Computer Science)
This makes me dangerous. Take for example:Episode 523: Make your Own Auto-Sensing Solder Fume Extractor, Katie sadly started to build a bigger box:
- A sensor
- An Arduino
- Time to code this thing.
Katie did not look at form or function or what do I don't need ( anything from the list).
My approach is very minimalistic.
- AC Solid State Relay, the output of the relay (load) goes to the fume extractor) (so ok If you have a DC fan toss in a transformer and some diodes.
The Black wire is further away from the switch. The white or Neutral goes to the neutral side and you're done.
So now when you turn on my Metcal solder system the fume extracted is on as well.
If you don't understand this let me know And I will whip up a print!!!!
