Temperature controlled reflow oven build

Posted on Friday, September 12th, 2014 in Arduino, DIY by DP


Matt of SkyLabs has a nice build log about a temperature controlled reflow oven he built using an Arduino based PID controller and a standard toaster oven:

We have successfully managed to build a temperature controlled reflow oven using an Arduino based PID controller and a standard toaster oven from Robert Dyas! This is a must have accessory for any hobbyist who regularly uses surface mount components within their designs. Below we have a build log documenting the process of constructing the oven including:

  • Teardown of the original oven
  • Custom enclosure construction
  • Control Methods
  • Arduino Installation

So to start off I will outline a basic parts list of what I used:

  • Arduino Uno
  • Reflow Oven Shield
  • Solid State Relay
  • K-Type Thermocouple
  • 230v AC to 5v DC Power Supply
  • Custom Laser Cut Enclosure

    It’s not just surface mount – I don’t have a working soldering iron.
    So if it doesn’t bolt and screw together, my reflow oven controller will need – a reflow oven.
