Also both the Thermocouple connector (J7) and the Iron Vout connector (J2) have a GND pin, do I only use the Iron connector (J2) GND pin ?
Any advice for installing the diodes and FETs on flying leads, say around 100mm ?
If I pick some possible replacement components can I get your opinion ?
in second - you choose a hard way i think. [/quote]
Maybe your right. I admired the route he chose, I would also have opted for a monolithic solution, but this is no Mk1. It has software adjustable gain, offset, current sources and sinks and a host of optimizations to see the true TC signal. It works very well indeed.
I researched before opting to build this and no other open source offering comes close.
It also works on Aoyue Tweezers, Aoyue desoldering gun and a ZD-929C iron.
I'm just controlling a T12 tip and dont have need for JBC-C210. I tested the controller on multiple PCBs (multiple revisions of it, multiple builds) with scavenged, beat up and also brandspankingshinynew LM358's. As far as I can see not much difference between the controller.
Hey Sjaak where can we download your design ? Have you shared it ?
It's as good a hit as the first scope I owned way back when I was at school (which I still own). Remember that light coming on ?
<soapbox> I do this as a hobby, and even as a hobby there is no other tool you use more than a soldering iron yet spend so little on usually, now I have used a JBC I would have paid the 400 Euro they charge long ago if only I had known just how good they are. </soapbox>
Do the deed and treat yourself to a JBC handle and a PCB for V5 of sparkybg's work, you will not regret it !
[quote author="jonodaman"]Hey Sparkybg any news on the new version i would really like to build a couple of these i have always wanted a jbc station but could not justify the cost and your controller looks awesome
