Smart Temperature Controller

Control Anything Anywhere

Powerful, Precise, Flexible, Programmable... SMART

What is SmartPid?

  • SmartPID Controller is a professionally engineered Hi-tech product for temperature and process control having lots of functions and features, which are not present in other or normal 'Thermostats'
  • SmartPID Controller can control any thermo regulated process (heating or cooling) and any applications locally or remotely
  • It is flexible and very powerful device which can be programmed and adapted to any custom application
  • SmartPID Controller is 100 compatible with Arduino ecosystem

What SmartPid can do?

  • Compared to simple on/off thermostat SmartPID controller can collect temperature from multiple sensors, apply a custom and programmable control logic and drive different load (heater, cooler, valve, fan…) with PID precision algorithm
  • You can easily replace your thermostat and add full process control to your application, data log and remote management
  • SmartPID Controller is a must device for Do-It- Yourself Enthusiasts. Software geeks, Makers, but also professionals that need affordable process controller
  • From homebrewing or wine making to aquarium or refolow oven temperature control SmartPID can add precision, power, flexibility programmability
  • In one word make your temperature process control SMART

Available SmartPID Applications

Basic Application

General purpose temperature controller application with all advanced and smart features for a variety of process

[see next section for details]
Smart Homebrewing

Complete BIAB/RIMS brewing process automation and recipe management
Fermentation temperature control

Smart BBQ

Charcoal BBQ temperature control for pitmaster perfection

Smart Food Dehydrator

Dry your food in a precise, controlled and healthy way

Basic Application Features

DUAL Independent control channels

SmartPID can control 2 differents channels with two temperature sensors and independent outputs (ie one heating process and one cooling process)

Multi control mode

Each SmartPID channel can be configured to control either a “cooling” or “heating” process or combined “thermostatic” process

PID or ON/OFF algorithm

Each SmartPID channel can support simple ON/OFF algorithm or advanced PID control logic with PWM output. Each process parameter is fully configurable

DIN compact all in one box

SmartPID has been carefully engineered to fit a very compact plastic box (DIN size 36X72B L 75) for panel mount. You can plug and play replace standard low cost thermostat (STC1000, Sestos etc..)

Analog Digital Temperature probe support

On each SmarPID channel is possible to connect either analog NTC sensor or digital DS18B20 one wire sensor

Multiple Outputs

The SmartPID controller has 5 differents control outputs for any load and device type 2 x Mechanical Relay 220V/10A 1 x 12v SSR ouput 2 x 12V 2A direct load driving (pump, fan, valve)

OLED graphical display

A super brilliant OLED graphical display allow smartPID to report all the information about process control , data log, temperature graphic etc. Simple text menu navigation simplify configuration process..no more strange codes or 7 segment display

USB port

Front USB port is the key to make SmartPID a flexible and programmable device. Through USB you can Load new firmware application, export data log, configure your application via desktop dashboard

Internal 220V/110V AC power supply

SmartPID is powered directly by main power, no need of external adapter ! 2A internal power supply provide enough current for two 12V output to drive directly the load: no more cabling and external relay

Process data logging

This feature is what make SmartPID so smart..all process data are logged in internal 8mb flash memory and can be collected and analyzed offline via USB or pushed real time via wifi to a server.

WiFi connectivity and remote control

Wifi Internal module open SmartPID to the IoT world with possibility to push log and process data in the cloud or remote configuration and control

Arduino Compatible

SmartPID has been designed and engineered to be 100% arduino compatible. It is based on SAMD21 mcu (same as Arduino Zero and MKR1000) and benefits of the support of all the libraries, communities and code available. Plug your USB port to your PC and program the board via Arduino IDE
