Temperature Controlled Switch

- Advertisement -

This simple temperature controlled circuit triggers automatically when the ambient temperature goes beyond a set limit of, say, 50 degrees centigrade. This temperature setting can be changed as per requirement through the potentiometer in the circuit.

The circuit has three parts: the sensor, main control unit, and relay driver. It works on 230V AC mains. A bulb used in the circuit acts as a load for demonstration purpose. When the room temperature goes beyond the set limit the bulb switches on automatically. The author’s prototype is shown in Fig. 1.
