500W Hotplate

These are pictures of a 500W hotplate I made a while ago for phone screen glass only repairs. The temperature can be set and is maintained using a PID control loop running on the arduino nano.

It could also be used to reflow¬†PCB’s or for other purposes where heating objects to a specific temperature is required.

In the future I will redesign the control board and software to accommodate for extra features like a reflow profile.
