"Is there already programming out there for the Arduino thermal switch to be used independently as a thermostat, or alternative like you mentioned? either way, as long as it is separate from the ph, ph2's then that will be great. Do…"
"Maybe because it would require modifying the Ardupilot code and that is no easy task and probably overkill for the objective. Maybe in the future a Pixhawk V3 architecture would provide a "companion computer" to easily develop and…"
"Then if you want to get it really fancy, you could use a small arduino type board in place of your thermal switch so you can program a PID loop to keep the temperature on a predefined value, in order to avoid temp oscillations (which could cause…"
"This wouldn't need to be highly accurate, as the onboard heater is... This would just keep the ambient temp down to give the heater a chance.
Ideally you would keep the case at 50 degrees or less, and let the heater get it right."
" I decided to go the route mentioned-that is if someone writes the code. It will be battery to peltier to pwm switch back to battery. On the other side of the pwm switch is the pwm leads that I will attach to the ph 2. The reason I…"
"Something like this: http://tinyurl.com/zj69pas. Amazon has tons of options and temp ranges. I don't think voltage will be a problem, 6A may be a bit high for some, but worst case if you can't find one that handles it adding a simple…"
The temperature code is new :)
No need to add another sensor, I think we have 8 temperature sensors already!
Just need someone to put their hand up to add an external heater option."
