I have updated my signature and added links to the KKTO roaster build

I will say, it only happened once, briefly, to me.

Has anyone made a case for the Arduino/TC4 (or TC4+) combo?
shortyjacobs
Pretty much the title. Search turning up nothing. I've got my TC4+ and Arduino package sitting right here, figured I'd ask before I reinvent the wheel.

If not, I'll try my hand at one.

The only case that I have seen is a clear plastic one for the Arduino/TC4 shield that JimG was offering a while back. He longer sells TC4 stuff. I don't know if anyone else has continued to offer the case.

Requires drilling some custom openings, though...

I've never really thought about a case before, because I assumed most people would want a bigger enclosure for everything including SSRs, PSU, etc anyway. Good point though.

You can probably use a generic case as a starting point like the one renatoa linked, or a 3D model if you want to print a case. You will have to add cutouts for a few things. The DC screw terminals and the bluetooth header would be the first things to look at.

Yep, I was thinking similar after I posted, I’ll want to contain my SSRs and ZCD. I’ll post up once I make one, with Fusion360 and STEP files so anyone can modify as needed (I’ll print mine, gotta justify that thing!)

I picked up a case through spark fun a few years ago that fiit Arduino and tc4c.

For controlling my 2 SSRs I used a wort boiler unit from auberins. It is a manual 100 step controller.

I was going to put the tc4c+lcd in to run things but the roaster worked so well I stopped at the manual stage.

I mounted my boards inside the bottom of the roaster with the motor. Added a small panel to connect the TCs.

These are simple 3D printed plates that I've been using on a new build. Open for easy access to the pins.
