I'm currently designing a cure oven that dries a coated wire passing through it. I just need to be able to set a target temperature of 100 or 120 degrees C and keep it there.
I ordered the RocketScream Reflow Oven shield because it comes conveniently assembled, and includes buttons, an LCD, and allows for easy attachment of a thermocouple and relay control for my heating elements. I have all of the hardware aspects designed and figured out, but the software side is holding me back.
I was looking through the code, and as somebody with no coding background except for some MatLab, I understand some of it, but not quite all of it.
My question is has anybody used this shield for something as simple as my project? I have browsed the Adafruit PID tutorial, but I'm not quite sure how to adapt that to this shield which uses it's own library.
Any guidance is extremely appreciated! Thank you, Parker '
