Overhead Water Tank Level everyday is a painful act being observed by my dad for years (and a compulsion too) This
controller became important
process of our parents, who look after house management is picking-up!!
Keeping in mind that this work that
they do today is to be transferred to me sooner or later, I
decided for a new project: "Water Tank Pump Controller".
There are many Pump Controllers out there but we
decided to make one with minimum components and with a PIC processor.
This Water Tank Pump controller uses PIC16F88 and
look after your overhead tank level at all the time!! It even goes to
sleep while we are asleep and wakes up when someone in the house flush a
toilet! I am happy that with this controller in place, I will not
have to run at late night to fill-up overhead tank anymore, specially
when we have guests in house!!
PIC Program and PCB/Kits
are with great support of Fox
Here are few important points that this
controller will do for you:
1. Its DC12V Powered
2. Simple Project with PIC16F88
3. 4 Sensors to monitor Tank
Level and 1 for Sump
4. 2 x 16 LCD Display.
5. Water Level Indication as a
6. Auto Sleep Mode: PIC goes to
sleep when nothing to do!!
7. Use Hi-Z probe Sensors or
Mechanical Float switches.
8. 10A Rated Relay for your Motor
9. Free PIC Firmware by Tony/I2TZK
