DIY 240v dew control with temp gauges + home made dew bands with temp sensors

Recommended Posts

So I’ve manage to put this together and surprisingly it actually works really well.

All the parts were from eBay and probably cost under £50 I didn’t tally it up but it was around that. 

I dont have any drawings or plans I just copied some ideas and made a few ideas as I went along.

its not  totally finished  as I just need to get some decals and then it’s all good. 

It actually works it stops the condensation and it doesn’t get too hot. 

It tells me the ambiant temp and I can adjust the bands to suit.

im happy to answer questions and give details or links to purchases.

That looks very impressive. What operating voltage do you have going up to the dew bands. Is this stepped down to 12v?

Yes it’s 12v. I used a transformer for L.E.D lighting and also used P.W.M fan controllers which are supposed to be very efficient.

Very tidy that Darren, you have got to love a bit of home made gear. You'll have to keep us posted on how you get on with it.
