Which PID controller to buy for PP extruder?

22/05/2019 at 19:57

Hello, world!
In Vespaio studio we’re working on assembling a shredder and an extruder.

We must order the electronics for the extruder now, but we’re not finding the code of the right  PID controller to use, we would like to order it on eBay.
Can you please help us to find it?

Thank you 🙂

There is a link to a low cost example PID, thermocouple, SSR bundle at the end of this thread http://onearmy.world/community/forums/topic/ssr-relais-for-injektor-extruder/ . The control requirements are not very sophisticated so I don’t think you will need to tune the PID parameters which you can’t do with some low end units. If you already have the SSR and temp sensor, just make sure that the PID is consistent with them. With the lower cost SSR you probably want to have lots of margin on current.

If your use requires industrial quality equipment similar configurations are available at a significantly higher price.
